Kōryaku (康暦?) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, lit. year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Eiwa and before Eitoku. This period started in March 1379 and ended in February 1381.[1] The pretender in Kyoto was Emperor Go-En'yū (後円融天皇 Go-En'yū-tennō?)[2] Go-En'yū's Southern Court rival in Yoshino during this time was Emperor Chōkei (長慶天皇 Chōkei-tennō?).[3]
