Miyamoto Name Meaning
Japanese: habitational name meaning ‘(one who lives) at the shrine’, found mostly in western Japan and the island of Okinawa. Several noted samurai families bear this name, but the widespread existence of Shinto shrines in Japan indicates that most bearers are unrelated and are not of samurai rank.
