This chapter takes a multilayered approach to the practice of local joint ownership in several regions at both domain and village levels as well as in a broad, national context of Japan. Each level of analysis—national, regional, local—requires different methods and employs different kinds of data. For instance, it employ daimyo domain-level data to examine two key examples of domain-managed warichi. While domain ordinances may be reasonably complete, serial data on actual practice within the domain is conspicuously limited. Some efforts that call for diachronic analyses therefore draw on documents that represent an incomplete record. Among these sources are notebooks that record the outcome of reallocation of access to land, and the occasional settlements of disputes over redistribution.

Keywords:   multilayered approach, joint ownership, daimyo domain-level data, domain-managed warichi, diachronic analyses
