|History of Japan|
Bunki (文亀?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Meiō and before Eishō. This period spanned the years from February 1501 through February 1504. The reigning emperor was Go-Kashiwabara-tennō (後柏原天皇?).
Change of era
- 1501 Bunki gannen (文亀元年?): The era name was changed to mark the anniversary of the enthronement of Go-Kashiwabara and the 58th year of the Chinese zodiac. The previous era ended and a new one commenced in 1501 (Meiō 10, 29th day of the 2nd month).
Events of the Bunki era
- 1501 (Bunki 1): The former-Shogun Yoshimura was exiled; and he retired to Suruga province, and he lived in exile in the home of the daimyo of that han. He changed his name to Ashikaga Yoshitane; and he summoned all the military forces of the western empire to come to his aid. Hosokawa Masamoto was made master of all the provinces which encircled the Kinai.
- 1502 (Bunki 2, 7th month): Minamoto-no Yoshitaka was elevated to the 2nd tier of the 4th class kuge officials; and he expressed thanks to the emperor for that honor. In the same month, the name of Ashikaga Yoshitaka was changed to that of Yoshizumi.
- 1503 (Bunki 3): There was a great drought in the summer of this year.
