Emperor Hanazono of Japan
He was the fourth son of the 92nd Emperor Fushimi. He belonged to the Jimyōin-tō branch of the Imperial Family.
During Hanazono's reign, Negotiations between the Bakufu and the two lines resulted in an agreement to alternate the throne between the two lines every 10 years (the Bumpō Agreement). This agreement did not last long, being broken by the Go-Daigo Emperor.
In 1348, he died.
He excelled at tanka, and was an important member of the Kyōgoku School. He also left behind a diary, called Hanazono-in-Minki (Imperial Chronicles of the Flower Garden Temple [Hanazono-in]) (花園院宸記). He was a very religious and literate person, never failing to miss his prayers to the Amitabha Buddha.
