- Japanese: 阿比留氏 (Abiru-shi)
The Abiru clan served the Kamakura shogunate as local officials on Tsushima. It is believed the clan may have been derived from the Taira clan, but the validity of this notion is not fully evident from primary sources.
In 1246, the Abiru rose up against their superiors, the Dazaifu authorities, headed by the Chinzei Bugyô, which oversaw the governance of Kyushu for the shogunate. Koremune Shigehisa, at the request of Dazaifu, put down the rebellion and put an end to the Abiru clan.
