Linking 800 Years

Past, Present, and Future

 In 1221, Retired Emperor Gotoba arrived in Ama. He had been exiled here after the events of the Jōkyū Disturbance – a struggle for power with the Kamakura shogunate. Never allowed back to the capital, he lived in Ama for 19 years and here he passed away.

 The year 2021 marks the 800-year anniversary of his arrival on the island. Here the lore and culture centered around him lives on, coupled with the rich natural environment and made sublime.

 As the anniversary year drew close, we formed Gotoba-in Kenshō Executive Committee. Together with the local people, we are striving to pass down the connections to Retired Emperor Gotoba. Moreover, we want to relay as assets to future generations the traditional lifestyles, which are rooted in the nature of Ama and enriched with contemporary values.

 In regards to Japanese waka poetry, he commissioned Fujiwara Sadaie and others to compile the anthology Shin Kokin Wakashū. He continued to contribute even when in exile, writing almost 800 poems, including the anthology Entō Hyakushū.
