Hi here is nice poem about Katanamochi...
ume saku ya setchin no soto no katanamochi
Issa 1824
plum blossoms-
outside the outhouse
a sword bearer
Translation D. Lanoue

"A samurai of decent rank could afford such an attendant because human labor was so cheap"

Holding the sword outside the outhouse is the better part of the job; the inside guy had it worse!
