SHICHO= three servants

The fifth tier, between the plants, holds three helpers or samurai as the protectors of the Emperor and Empress. From left to right (viewer's perspective):

1. Maudlin drinker
2. Cantankerous drinker and
3. Merry drinker

They represent the 3 initial human reactions.. delight, sadness and anger
