The origins of the Fuwa of Mino province are unclear, though they may have been descended from the Fujiwara. During the Sengoku Period they first served the Toki, then the Saitô. They later became retainers of the Oda and were given a domain in Echizen. Around 1582 they became subordinate to the Maeda family.
