後土御門天皇口宣案 (Go-Tsuchimikado tennō kuzen an)

This kuzan an from emperor Go-Tsuchimikado records a promotion for Kiyonori’s son Kiyohisa to the office of Uemon no shōjō in 1478. Most likely Kiyohisa succeeded his father and gained a position in the lower ranks of the nobility. This post was often linked to a position in the capital police, which was responsible for providing order and adjudicating cases in the capital.
