During the Nara period, Kanto warriors were sent to the west coast of Kyushu to protect against a possible attack from the continent, and many poems of these men and their wives were recorded in a document called the Manyoshu.
While still in the midst of the siege on Odawara, Hideyoshi issued a decree attempting to restore peace and order by commanding peasants of the Kanto to return to their homes, forbidding his soldiers from burning and stealing, and ensuring that no criminal acts would be performed toward peasants, shrines, or temples.
Already 'volunteering' their time and effort to rebuild Odawara and its surroundings time and again, and too far to realistically be able to provide the aid they were expected to, the villagers became very negative towards the post station authorities, leading to tension and, eventually, riots.
