Notes


  • Houki-kami Masayuki largely influenced a lot of swordsmiths in Satsuma province during the Shinshinto period along with the notable smith MOTOHIRA (元平),
  • He worked under the name of Masayoshi(正良) until he received the ZURYOUMEI(受領名) of Houki-kami at 1789. Coincidentally, Motohira also received the Zuryomei of Yamato-kami in the same year.
