Emperor Kōshō (孝昭天皇 Kōshō-tennō) was the 5th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kōshō to be a legendary person, and the name Kōshō-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No certain dates can be assigned to this emperor's life or reign. The conventionally accepted names and sequence of the early emperors were not to be confirmed as "traditional" until the reign of Emperor Kammu, who was the 50th monarch of the Yamato dynasty.
The Gukanshō records that Kōshō ruled from the palace of Ikekokoro-no-miya at Waki-no-kami in what will come to be known as Yamato province.
