Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of measurements and glossary relevant to the examination of the antecedents and origins of Goryōrin, the logic of its creation, and the overall pattern of its evolution. Goryōrin was a modern invention, a Meiji-era solution to problems of the day. Like so many Meiji solutions, of course, it was grounded in earlier precedents, both domestic and foreign. However, those precedents were full of mutual inconsistencies, and many were ill-fitted to the times. Several factors contributed to Goryōrin's long-term shrinkage, and both officialdom and villagers played a role in it. From first to last, then, during its brief lifetime Goryōrin never achieved complete stability of size, location, or character.
