This single-volume work is a compilation of the family records of the Shirakawa family. By the order of Masatomi Ō, this work was compiled by Taniguchi Sukeyuki (dates unknown), a disciple in the Shirakawa priestly lineage, and completed in 1754. The Hakkeburui is comprised of twenty-five chapters and includes items such as "Jingikan no koto" and "Sairō no koto" (see kinensai). This text was compiled as an easy reference for the many documents concerning the Jingikan (Bureau of Divinities) which date from the end of the Heian period and continue through the Edo period and, also, documents concerning the Shirakawa Hakuō lineage, the hereditary heads of the Jingikan. Although all descendants of the Shirakawa Hakuō lineage had engaged in the performance of imperial court rites since the beginning of the Edo period, Masafuyu Ō's adopted son Masatomi Ō was not only diligent in his performance of the courtly rites, he was also an advocate for Yuitsu Shintō. As a consequence, Masatomi Ō must have been keenly aware of the necessity of compiling the Shirakawa Hakuō family records in order to protect the lineage and its political interests from the Yoshida family which had by then already secured the loyalty of a significant number of shrine priests (shinshoku). Hakkeburui is included in Shintō taikei, Ronsetsu-hen, Hakke Shintō.
