History Edit

Kaiu Anou was the family founder in the 4th century. [2] His descendants were so skilled in building that the Emperor requested them to construct a new temple within the boundaries of Otosan Uchi. The Emperor was so pleased with their exceptional work that he ordained that the Anou be adopted into the Miya family, to apply their expertise and talent in the Emperor's Blessing. [3]

Defensive Wall Edit

The first job was a wall which was built surrounding the Miya lands, the Anou Wall, followed by the fortification of Kyuden Miya itself. [4]
