Ema Mitsutoki ［江間光時］ (n.d.): Also known as Hōjō Mitsutoki. A Japanese samurai and a grandson of Hōjō Yoshitoki (1163–1224), the second regent of the Kamakura shogunate, and a son of Yoshitoki’s son, Hōjō Tomotoki. He was called Ema Mitsutoki because his main fief was located in Ema in Izu Province. He was the feudal lord of Shijō Kingo, a follower of Nichiren. In 1246 Mitsutoki was suspected of plotting treason against the regent Hōjō Tokiyori and was sentenced to confinement at Ema in Izu. At that time, his retainer Nakatsukasa Yorikazu, Shijō Kingo’s father, accompanied him as an attendant until his lord returned to Kamakura after being pardoned. Hōjō Chikatoki, who was also known as Ema Chikatoki or Ema no Shirō, was Mitsutoki’s son and successor. Shijō Kingo also served this new lord.
