Haruko,

If you know their home towns, you can probably write or email their town halls for the Koseki Touhons and possibly their mons. I found that they do not necessarily understand the word "kumon" in Japan.

We were lucky when researching my wife's relatives. Not only were we able to obtain Koseki Touhons but also the family mon for her grandmother on her mother's side.

Good luck on your search.

My father was adopted, but the last time I saw my grandmother she told me that my biological grandmother's name was Oba Masako (last name first right?)! I've been interested in searching for her since. Any info?

I haven't found anything out about Oba or Hanamure.
My dad told me that our family used to own the Mountain in Kagoshima (the city my family is from) Hanamure yama. Im not sure if its true in anyway because my dad can be odd sometimes!

I just found this thread and am inquiring as to any results. I too have ancestors from Japn with the surname Oba. My maternal grandmother is Kiyoko Oba. I believe i found pictures of her from the 1920's to 1930's. She may actually be about 7 years older than what we were always told.She had a marriage (possibly) in Japan before marrying my grandfather in the 1950's in America. She may have a daughter in Japan, Masako.
I have been searching for my kumon as well.
