Kyōroku was an era from 8/20 of 1528 to 7/29 of 1532 (based on the Japanese lunisolar calendar) in the Sengoku period.

The change from the prior era known as Daiei was related to the enthronement of Emperor Gonara.

During this era, Gonara served as the emperor; Ashikaga Yoshiharu served as the twelfth shōgun of the Muromachi bakufu (from 1521 to 1546).
