head of a group of local villages

 During the Edo period (1603-1867), the village head, known as shoya, was appointer by the lord of the clan to which the village belonged. Selected from among the prominent families in the village, the village head was responsible for collecting taxes and handling other administrative work. Village heads were, in turn, supervised by an ojoya, who was the "head of a group of local villages."
