<Daimyo Matrix>
During the Edo period, when Daimyo made official excursions such as a private branch exchange, it was a line of preparations for the number of people and equipments according to the formalities.

Every year, it was to go back and forth between the local clan and the Edo where his wife and children were "hostages". Because it required a lot of expenses, there was a purpose of the Edo shogunate to reduce the financial strength of Daimyo.

On the other hand, he seems to have enjoyed the eyes of the people living along the road by wearing luxurious kimonos and carrying tools decorated more than necessary.
