Catalogue Note

The Myochin familiy seem to have been makers of horse equipment during the Muromachi period and then became armourers in the late 16th century. In 1680, Myochin Munesuke (1642–c.1731) published a genealogy of the family, the Myochin Rekidai Zokufu with a list of supposed ancestors. From then on, the family flourished forming branch schools in the provinces.
