Jōji (貞治) was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō, lit. year name) of the Northern Court during the Nanboku-chō period after Kōan and before Ōan. This period started in September 1362 and ended in February 1368. The pretender in Kyoto was Emperor Go-Kōgon (後光厳天皇, Go-Kōgon-tennō). Go-Kōgon's Southern Court rival in Yoshino during this time was Emperor Go-Murakami (後村上天皇, Go-Murakami-tennō).
