The purpose of this study is to clarify personnel policy for the low-class shogun’s retainer in the \Tanuma epoch. To reveal the subject, I target Metsuke-shihai-muyaku that is a position of Tokugawa \shogunate. It is generally known that Goyaku (five positions of Tokugawa shogunate who are \in charge of various kinds of trivial routine duties, for example, guard, transportation, cleaning, \construction, messenger and so on) or some of Gokenin (vassals of the Tokugawa clan who are not \allowed an audience with the Shogun) are enrolled in Metsuke-shihai-muyaku when they are retired. \But the view so far does not always follow the historical fact, it needs to reconsider.\First, I review relations of Metsuke-shihai-muyaku and Goyaku, to define the target persons. Second, \I disclose the process of changing a scope of application of Metsuke-shihai-muyaku. Finally, based on \my investigation, I argue the organizational structure of the low-class shogun’s retainer from the point \of view of the financial control.
