Questions about 17th Century Japan

Yeah, I'm writing a fic set somewhere in feudal Japan and have some really random questions.

What are those straw/hay cloaks called you see people wear in the winter? Same with the hats that you see samurai wear, I never caught the name of those either. *points to icon*

About how long, on foot, would it take someone to travel the Tokaido Road versus the Nakasendo Road? I know that there were about 50-something shiki along Tokaido, was Nakesendo so fortunate? Would the bodyguard of a daimyo ever have time off?

I am *so* random. Thanks ahead of time. n.n
