Emperor Go-Fukakusa (後深草天皇 Go-Fukakusa-tennō?) (June 28, 1243 – August 17, 1304) was the 89th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. This reign spanned the years 1246 through 1260.[1]

This 13th century sovereign was named after the 9th century Emperor Nimmyō[2] and go- (後), translates literally as "later;" and thus, he could be called the "Later Emperor Fukakusa". The Japanese word "go" has also been translated to mean the "second one;" and in some older sources, this emperor may be identified as "Fukakusa, the second," or as "Fukakusa II."



Before his ascension to the Chrysanthemum Throne, his personal name (his imina) was Hisahito (久仁?).[3]

He was the second son of Emperor Go-Saga
