Poseidon of the East (3)


Posthumously, Japanese emperors are referred to by the name of their era, or nengou, not by their given names. The era name of Emperor Hirohito's reign (1926-1989) is Showa ("shining peace"), so he is now referred to as the Showa Emperor. The current era name is Heisei ("peace everywhere").

The joufuu (条風) is described in chapter 1 of The Wings of Dreams.
