Historical references[edit]

The only historical record about Suishō is a brief sentence on Volume 85 of the Book of the Later Han.

In the first year of Yongchu during the reign of the Emeperor An (AD 107), Suishō, the king of Wa, presented 160 生口 (slaves?) [to the emperor], and entreated an audience.[1]
