  • Japanese: 珉 (Bin, Min)

Bin, or Min, is recorded as having been a king of the Okinawan kingdom of Hokuzan from roughly 1393 to 1395 or 1400. Very little is known about him or his reign. As the few records of his predecessor, Haniji, seem to suggest that Haniji ruled until 1395, the circumstances of Bin's rule are particularly unclear.

Preceded by:
Haniji
Reign as King of Hokuzan
c. 1393-1395
Succeeded by:
Hananchi
