Hōji (宝治?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") after Kangen and before Kenchō. This period spanned the years from February 1247 to March 1249.[1] The reigning emperor was Go-Fukakusa-tennō (後深草天皇,?).[2]

Change of era[edit]

  • 1247 Hōji gannen (宝治元年?); 1247: 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 Kangen 5.
