Einin (永仁?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Shōō and before Shōan. This period spanned the years from August 1293 through April 1299.[1] The reigning emperors were Fushimi-tennō (伏見天皇?) and Go-Fushimi-tennō (後伏見天皇?).[2]

Change of era[edit]

  • 1298 Einin gannen (永仁元年?): The new era name was created to mark an event or a number of events. The previous era ended and a new one commenced in Shō'ō 6.

  • 1299 (Einin 7): Emperor Go-Fushimi is said to have acceded to the throne (sokui) and the nengō was changed to Shōan to mark the beginning of a new emperor's reign.[4]
