Inkyo, 'retirement'  or 'seclusion', was offered to any samurai who reached his forties. The retired samurai sought the enlightenment becoming a monk, or moved to a separate house without the burden of leadership. A non-bushi woman's retirement was known as shufu. 
After a samurai reached the age of 40, he was expected to retire to a monastery to a simple life of meditation. This was not always the case, as many leaders of the clans are often very old.  Further opportunities were offered at age 50, 55, and 60, at which point a samurai began to shame his house if he remained in society. The samurai took a new name to represent the focus of their new life, so they were no more referred to by their previous title.
