Emperor Còmei was the last Emperor of Japan of the Tokugawa era, and reigned over the opening up of Japan
Còmei was the fourth son of Emperor Nincò.
Emperor Còmei was opposed to the opening up of Japan, preferring instead to concentrate on reforming Japan from the inside. His younger sister, Txicaco, Princess Cazu, was married to Xògun Tocugawa ???. He died of smallpox at the age of 35, though there is a persistant theory that he was actually poisoned by the anti-bacufu (Xogunate) faction.
