Kuwahara Name Meaning
Japanese: ‘mulberry plain’; also pronounced Kuwabara. One family of Kuwahara-go in Yamato (now Nara prefecture) claims descent from ancient Chinese immigrants, which is feasible because silk culture was imported from China and Korea, and silkworms eat mulberry leaves. Other families have taken the name from similarly named locations throughout Japan.
