the 115th emperor of Japan, according to the traditional order of succession. Sakuramachi's reign spanned the years from 1735 through 1747. He was said to be the reincarnation of Prince Shotoku. With the support of Tokugawa Yoshimune, he worked for the restoration of Imperial rites, bringing back the Daij?sai ( the first ceremonial rice-offering by a newly enthroned emperor) and the Shinj?sai (a ceremonial rice-offering by the emperor) among others, and concentrated on restoring other courtesies.
