1653 to 1687: The Shōgunate Takes Legislative Measures
     to Regulate & Control Society Including All Social Groups
     Namely: Warrior/Samurai, Farmer, Craftsman, Merchant,
     Religious, Imperial - and, not least: "Outcast"

In Hosaka Hiro'oki's important 1994 article, pp. 204-207*, he presents various information regarding a number of inquiries, measures and legislative initiatives directed towards suspicious social groups, pseudo-religious practitioners etc., like also the 'komusō' begging flute players.

The information covers the period from 1653 to 1687, including cases dating from the following years, chronologically:

1653, 1660-1668, 1662, 1665, 1665, 1668, 1672, 1674, (not 1677!) 1678, 1680, 1683, 1684 and 1687.
