Emperor Kaika (開化天皇 Kaika-tennō) is the 9th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Historians consider Emperor Kaika to be a legendary person; and the name Kaika-tennō was created for him posthumously by later generations.
No certain dates can be assigned to the 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 Kaika ruled from the palace of Isakawa-no-miya at Kasuga in what will come to be known as Yamato province.
Kaika was the second son of Emperor Kōgen.
