Miyabiyama has two sisters - one older and one
younger. His father used to manage one of the biggest,
if not the biggest, tax companies in Ibaraki

I also believe the family owns an inn in Ibaraki as
well. My mother-in-law stayed there once.

I think certain arrangements can be done by his
sisters as well as the Takeuchi Clan but as the eldest
son he will be the one to lead the funeral so he has
to make the final arrangement when he comes back from

I am sure his mother wanted to see him get married but
unfortunately he appeared not incline to do so any
time soon.
