KII 
          IRUKA: Descendants from YAMATO.
          The specific genealogy of origin remains hazy against
          a competition of theories. The generally accepted line
          falls from SHO-O NAKAZANE. TEGAI - HOSHO influence. 
          KII borders YAMATO -the even MASAME of HOSHO and the 
          HOTSURE of TEGAI is seen in IRUKA.
