Notes


  • The school’s swords have some characteristics in common with Yamashiro Tradition swords, this is because the founder had previously learned under Umetada Myoju(埋忠明寿) in Yamashiro province before.
  • Through the Edo period, the school had over 100 students, and their swords account for half of all the swords made in the SHINTO period(1596–1780).
