Where do all the Kinko honkyoku come from?

I've started an easy to read list of all the Kinko honkyoku and where they come from.  As most of you know, Kurasawa Kinko walked around Japan collecting honkyoku to make up what is known today as the Kinko-ryu (although some were added later).  So, where do they originally come from?  I got the following information from easily accessible sources, such as Komuso.com or John Singer's page.  If you have any other information or corrections or whatever please add to it.  If you can read Japanese please add place names I don't have the kanji for. Thanks.
Of course I'll continue to do more research on this too and add whatever I find. (~~ji (sometime ken)= ~~ temple; Ichigetsuji = Ichigetsu temple)

Akebono no shirabe 曙の調 (not sure)
Akebono Sugagaki 曙菅垣 (黒沢琴古の作曲) written by Kinko himself

Has anyone recorded a Nezasa-ha version of this?

Re: Where do all the Kinko honkyoku come from?

Not that I know of... as far as I can tell its not really part of the Nezasa-ha repertoire anymore.

Re: Where do all the Kinko honkyoku come from?

The problem here is that some of the place origins are actually associated with other pieces which happen to have similar or same names as the Kinko honkyoku. They are not the same pieces in many cases.

A couple of these (Kumoijishi and Azuma no Kyoku) are not even considered honkyoku by Kinko players, they are "gikyoku".

Part of "Hi Fu Mi Hachigaeshi no Shirabe" was composed by Araki Chikuo.

Those are a few leads you might want to track down.

Re: Where do all the Kinko honkyoku come from?

Yeah, I've noticed that.  I have several pieces of the same name with entirely different contents.  The above information is mostly from John Singer's webpage research and a few from other places.  I haven't actually started my own work into this so much.  I'm working on some other stuff at the moment, but thought people would have some input if I threw it on here in the meantime. 
Thanks for the info on Hi Fu Mi hachigaeashi no Shirabe. 
that's the kind of stuff I'm looking for.
