This chapter analyzes the political and cultural meanings of the processions of the daimyo and their extensive entourages up and down the highways. These parade-like movements were replete with symbolic import for the nature of early modern governance. They were sites of competing daimyo and shogunal production, with multiple levels of performance and audience. In addition, they were a type of group activity that assumed certain distinct forms that marked the cultural landscape of early modern Japan. Alternate attendance was in essence a military exercise, and because of this basic fact, the various elements in the daimyo procession originated in the order of battle.

Keywords:   daimyo, entourages, shogunal production, cultural landscape, military exercise, daimyo procession
