Man carrying bows
 
This scroll shows a member of a daimyô procession (daimyô sankin-totai) during the Edo era. At that time, it was the duty of the lords to seasonally reside in the court of the shôgun. Thus they often had to walk large distances from the provinces to Edo. Generally, these travels were extensively celebrated. The kagemono shows a man carrying a packed kyudo bow tith accessories.
