Eikyô 5 (永享五年)
Timeline of 1433
Other Events of 1433
- China grants permission to expand the size of Japanese tribute missions to 300 men on three ships.
- The first kangô bôeki mission since 1410 arrives in China. The mission consists of five ships, and is co-sponsored by the Yamana clan, the Ashikaga shogunate, Sôkoku-ji, Sanjûsangendô, and thirteen other daimyô, temples, and shrines. The documents sent by Shogun Ashikaga Yoshinori refer to the shogun as "Your Subject, Minamoto Yoshinori," and employ the Chinese Xuande reign year; the Ming Court responds favorably, sending a mission which formally invests Yoshinori as "King of Japan," and provides 100 new kangô ("tallies").
- On'ami (Kanze Motoshige) becomes the third head of the Kanze school of Noh.
