This chapter argues that in contrast with this Edo-centric model, the social processes involved in the production and integration of culture in the Edo period were much more complex. Rather than a unidirectional model, a more accurate paradigm of cultural change, as revealed by alternate attendance, consists of a number of currents by means of which people, ideas, and material goods and other culture flowed between the roughly 250 domains and the center (Edo). Culture was, in other words, produced and transmitted all along the metaphorical road of alternate attendance.
