Totei was the Rokugani assistant to a master shokunin, an apprentice. After the shomon arrangement was confirmed with the payment of the tetsuken to the apprentice's parents, the totei was indentured to his master for the next ten years, living in his master's house without any stipend for his work, a formalized slavery. Those who attempted to escape the contract where prosecuted upon the kogyo-gamo law. After the training period the new craftsman might even become a member of the kabunakama (merchant guild) himself.
