Prince Koreyasu (惟康親王, Koreyasu Shinnō, 26 May 1264 – 25 November 1326; reigned 1266 – 1289), also known as Minamoto no Koreyasu (源 惟康), was the seventh shōgun of the Kamakura shogunate of Japan.[1] He was the nominal ruler controlled by the Hōjō clan regents.

Prince Koreyasu was the son of Prince Munetaka who was the sixth shōgun.

  • 26 August 1266 (Bun'ei 3, 24th day of the 7th month): Koreyasu was installed as the 7th shōgun at the age of two when his father was deposed.[2]
  • 17 July 1287 (Kōan 10, 6th day of the 6th month): The shōgun was given the offices of Chūnagon and Udaijin in the hierarchy of the Imperial court.[3]
  • 29 September 1289 (Shōō 2, 14th day of the 9th month): A revolt led by Hōjō Sadatoki (Sagami-no-Kami) caused Koreyasu to flee to Kyoto.[4]

At age 25, the deposed shōgun became a Buddhist monk. His priestly name was Ono-no miya.[1]
