Award & Office Badges


In 2001, while on pilgrimage, Sugawara no Naeme found herself unexpectedly in a portion of the Kingdom of Meridies that would later become the Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. Over the years she gained offices and a title, shared her art in costuming and scribal endeavors, and service decorating feast halls and running events. She taught classes on Japanese culture and fostered many in creating their own Japanese persona. At the end of 2013 Sugawara and her companion Ogawa-dono moved to the East Kingdom to tend to family.

One day she hopes to return to the Heavenly Isle and the storied capital, Heian-kyo. Until then, Sugawara shares her knowledge, art, and service with her adopted Kingdom.


Naeme-hime was born to the ancient and noble Sugawara Uji near the end of the 10th century.

She hopes to gain the favor of one of the great court ladies to serve as a knowledgeable companion much as Murasaki Shikibu and Sei Shonagon serve the Empress and Princess with stories and poems.

When not in active service at court, Lady Sugawara spends her time on pilgrimage, visiting shrines and temples.
