By PlaceEdit

Byzantine EmpireEdit


  • The first Shinto shrines are built in Japan.
  • The Song dynasty ends in China.
  • Chinese chronicles record a memorial sent by the "King of Japan" (possibly Emperor Yūryaku), who describes himself as "Supreme Director of Military Affairs in Japan and Korea" to the Court of the Northern Wei Dynasty. The Chinese Emperor responds by confirming the Japanese dynasty in those titles. This is the earliest verifiable date in Japanese history.
