In the Edo era, the shogunate and various clan sites set up at major points of transportation. Sekisyo inspected passengers, passenger vessels, luggage, etc. and collected taxes as necessary. The shogunate was set up at the main port, the main river, and the clan monitored entering and leaving the territory by establishing a nodding at the clan border. In addition, Tsujibansyo was established for security in the city of Edo and Kyoto. Furthermore, it is the guardhouse of the municipal office in Edo.
