ABSTRACT

This study sought to understand wealth succession during the Edo era described in the Tosei Kanemochi Katagi. I analyzed the main characters about the men of wealth to appreciate that there were two types of wealthy men in the Tosei Kanemochi Katagi. The first type of wealthy men were people who inherited capital from their parents. The second type of wealthy men were the new capitalists who earned money wealth through their own efforts and wisdom. We learn that Kiyu’s intention was to depict the new economic circumstances where people only consider the result of earning money, not the ethical way of creating wealth.
