View Full Version : Kamon Help?

5th December 2000, 09:19

I'm looking for the original kamon (family crest) of the Uesugi Family, before Kenshin. Did they use the same as Kenshin later did (The kanji "Bi" from "Bishamonten") ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Joachim,
the major crest of the Uesugi family was a Mon of two sparrows, decorated by bamboo.

Finally somebody answered! Thank you!

I looked through all of the historical literature in english and german and most of the japanese history books at our university institute, but was unable to find it.
