Doko (道興)

Doko (1430 - 1527) was a Buddhist monk who was the monzeki (chief priest who is a member of the Imperial Family) of Shogo-in Temple during the Muromachi period.

He was a son of Fusatsugu KONOE (list of Sessho (regents), who was Kanpaku (chief adviser to the Emperor) from 1445 to 1447. Norimoto KONOE and Masaie KONOE were his brothers.

In 1465, he was conferred the title of Junsangu (honorary title next to the three empresses) by Imperial proclamation.

"Kaikoku Zakki," a record of his travels in eastern provinces written in 1486 and 1487, is well known.
