This text written by Ichijō Kaneyoshi (1402-81) and completed between 1455 and 1457. It is comprised of six volumes and three books and is a commentary on the "Age of the Kami" (jindai) volume of Nihon shoki. A renowned scholar of his time, Kaneyoshi draws upon the wealth of academic knowledge and, with the "unity of the three teachings" (sankyōitchi) forming the cornerstone of his argument, cites widely from Japanese and Chinese classics as well as Buddhist texts in the production of this commentary on the "Age of the Kami." This text not only exists as example of medieval scholarship as its highest levels but also see in it the beginnings of the positivist spirit of the generations to follow. Moreover, this text deserves special place in the history of commentaries on Nihon shoki on the grounds that it is the first study of its kind to include an analysis of the structure of the entire "Age of the Kami." Nihon shoki sanso is included in Tenri toshokan zenpon sōsho, vol. 27 (photo-offset copy, 1977, Tenri University Press), and the Shintō taikei, Kotenchūshaku-hen, Nihon shoki chūshaku, second volume.
