Emperor Taishō (大正天皇, Taishō-tennō, 31 August 1879 – 25 December 1926) wis the 123rd Emperor o Japan, accordin tae the tradeetional order o succession, reignin frae 30 Julie 1912, till his daith in 1926.

The Emperor’s personal name wis Yoshihito (嘉仁). Accordin tae Japanese customs, the emperor haes na name durin his reign an is anly cried the (present) Emperor. Lik aw ither Japanese emperors, syne his daith he haes been kent bi a posthumous name that, accordin tae a practice datin tae his predecessor's daith in 1912, is the name o the era coincidin wi his reign. Havin ruled durin the Taishō period (literally Great Righteousness), he is nou kent as Emperor Taishō. As this is nae a personal name, mair accurately he should be referred tae as "the Taishō emperor".

Awtho ootside Japan he is whiles referred tae as Yoshihito or Emperor Yoshihito, in Japan deceased emperors are referred tae anly bi thair posthumous names.
