The following was put at Muromachi era.
I think this is irrelevant to this article but maybe someone can utilize it. --Nanshu 03:14, 2 Mar 2004 (UTC)
Common heroes in the Muromachi priod are Ikkyu, Sesshu, Kusunoki Masashige.
Ikkyu was a zen priest in Muromachi era . He is well known today because of many legends about his wit and smartness. It is said that he could solve any problem by meditating several minutes. There are many legends that someone (usually a rich evil merchant) challenges Ikkyu with a difficult problem, and Ikkyu solves it with his brilliant wit.
Sesshu was one of the greatest painter in Japan. His art was sumie , painting with black Indian ink only. His sumie are consideres as one of the most sophisticated form of shibumi .
Masashige was a famous warlord in the Nanbokucho period. He was a loyal general of the emperor Godaigo . He served to the south dynasty after the schism, though most bushi decided to follow Takausji and his Muromachi .
Muromachi Mononoke hime?
Now where is the reference that I missed that puts the Mononoke-hime story in Muromachi Japan? I am not even sure it takes place in Japan at all... IIRC, there are no direct references to Muromachi Japan in the film. It's a fantasy story in a fantasy realm. The theme is not even a Feudal Japan one, or did I miss the Muromachi industrialization in the history books? I will delete this part. If you really think this is necessary, add some of the one hundred jidaigeki set in the period. -- Mkill 22:39, 9 December 2005 (UTC)

Kemmu vs Kenmu
All other ancient Japanese articles use the spelling Kemmu and I did not want to change them all but for consistency I have changed this article's to Kemmu. The link however redirects to Kenmu so anyone more experienced at wikipedia edits than I please change all of the other Japanese articles regarding Kemmu to its proper spelling with appropriate links. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 00:28, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
