Text A record of the origins and histories of ancient clans. Compiled in 815 during the reign of Emperor Saga, its thirty volumes classify 1182 clans into three main categories: descendants of gods, descendants of Emperors, and naturalized immigrants (from Han China, and the Korean kingdoms of Paekche, Koryo, Silla, and Imna). Entries are arranged in order by residence: Sakyô and Ukyô (the two main districts of the capital), Yamashiro, Yamato, Settsu, Kawachi, and Izumi.
