The Order of Kanju and Manju is an order of the Shogunate of Tenshukyō and the Empire of Agber it is a part of. It was created on 21 February 2019. The order was named for the two tidal gems from Japanese folklore. While the regalia of most orders are intended to be uniform or building on a single design, the various regalia of the Order of Kanju and Manju are meant to represent the lore surrounding the Japanese tidal gems.

There are three classes of the order:

  • Seal which is denoted by the wear of the seal, which is a medallion suspended from a yellow necklet. The seal depicts two dragons, meant to represent two sea gods: Watatsumi and Ryūjin. At the center of the seal is a yellow stone, meant to represent Kanju, the ebbing gem.
  • Star and Seal which is denoted by the wear of the star of the order and the seal, which is a medallion suspended from a yellow necklet. The star of the order shows a woman and a wave in gold. This is meant to represent the tale of Princess Tamatori stealing a tidal gem from the sea god Ryūjin.
  • Grand Cordon which is denoted by the wear of the regalia of the rank of Star and Seal, accompanied by a yellow sash. This rank of the order is reserved exclusively for Daimyos of the Council Clans. The cordon of the order bears a blue wave and a pearl, meant to represent Manju, the flowing gem.

List of Grand Cordons

The rank of Grand Cordon of the order is officially awarded for "impeccable service to the Shogunate." In practice it is reserved for the Daimyo of the Council Clans. In 2020, it was decided that this honor would be reserved for those Daimyo who reached one full year of service on the Council.

This list is current, as of 15 June 2020.
