Japanese leek with a lot of white parts at the base. Make a groove around it and pull the soil from there to fill the groove. At the end, the green onions are high and buried in the soil, and the opposite of the beginning. It became “Nebuka green onion” because it grows deep roots.” In 1993, the name was changed to “green onion without blurring”, and I heard that the green part of the leaf blade and the soft white part were named after the place where they were clear (not blurred).
An earthquake with an epicenter off the coast of Fukushima Prefecture that occurred at midnight on March 16, 2022 (an earthquake with an epicenter off the coast of FUKUSHIMA Prefecture that occurred at 23:36 caused a maximum seismic intensity of over 6 to be observed in Miyagi and Fukushima prefectures. As of 8:00 on March 18 (Friday), the damage has spread to 11 prefectures nationwide, with 174 human casualties (3 dead and 171 injured) and 93 residential damage (half destroyed). One building, 92 buildings partially damaged) has been reported. With March 16 as the applicable date, all local governments (35 municipalities in Miyagi prefecture, 59 municipalities in Fukushima prefecture) have been notified of the Disaster Relief Act (disaster relief). The law (Act No. 118 of 1947) was enforced on May 20, 2021, amended by Law No. 30 of 2021). Seismic intensity 4 was observed in 15 cities, towns and villages such as the city, Misawa city, Towada city, and Hirakawa city. According to the Aomori Local Meteorological Observatory, no tsunami was observed. According to the prefecture, as of 5 pm on March 17, there is no information on injuries or damage to buildings.

Immediately after the disaster, a total of 9148 households had a power outage in 10 districts such as Tamonoki and Numadate in Hachinohe City, but they were restored by 2:00 am on the 17th. According to the Meteorological Observatory, it is the first time in the prefecture that a seismic intensity of 5 lower or higher has been observed since October 6, 2021 in Hashikami-cho, Sannohe-gun. The person in charge of the meteorological observatory warned that there is a possibility that an earthquake with a seismic intensity of 6 or higher may occur in the area where the shaking was strong for about a week. The Japan Meteorological Agency has indicated that this earthquake occurred in the aftershock area of the Great East Japan Earthquake. The Hachinohe Industrial Waterworks in Hachinohe City temporarily leaked at two air valves, and water overflowed from the manholes in the city, but it was restored by the morning of the 17th, and it seems that there was no damage to the road. First of all, it’s a relief. However, digression is not allowed, so please be careful! “Long green onion brand” The boundary between the bright green color and the white part with silky luster is clearly separated, and it is thick and sweet, and has the best taste and quality. Towada Oirase Agricultural Cooperative is located in the eastern part of Aomori Prefecture. It is 60 km to the major cities of Aomori, 30 km to Hachinohe, and 20 km to Misawa Airport, the gateway to the sky. In 2008, JA Towada Oirase was born by merging Towada City Agricultural Cooperative, Momoishi Agricultural Cooperative, and Shimoda Agricultural Cooperative. Furthermore, in April 2010, it merged with Hakkoda Agricultural Cooperative, Yokohama Town Agricultural Cooperative, and Hamanasu Agricultural Cooperative, and became a wide-area JA covering 2 cities, 5 towns, and 3 villages. The northern region has many mountainous areas such as Mt Osorezan and Mt. Kamafuse, and the southern region is a flat plateau (65 m above sea level), with the Hakkoda mountain range rising to the west and the Oirase River originating from Lake Towada. It seems to be proud of the environment rich in nature. The climate of Towada City, where the head office is located, is that the average annual temperature is 9.7 degrees Celsius, the annual rainfall is 1100 mm, there are many sunny days in winter, and the amount of snowfall is small in the prefecture. However, from June to July, the Okhotsk Sea high pressure often causes a yamase (eastern wind), and the temperature continues to be 5 to 6 degrees lower than normal, which can cause great damage to crops. Looking at the agricultural form, there are many livestock farmers mainly in dairy in the northern area, and in the southern area, various management forms suitable for environmental conditions such as climate and soil are formed, such as upland farming, vegetables, livestock, etc. centering on rice cultivation. It seems that it has been done. Garlic, dioscorea opposita, and radish, these three items seem to account for about 60% of all vegetables. Garlic cultivation in the JA Towada Oirase jurisdiction seems to have started in earnest when mulch cultivation began in the 1975s. According to records, the cultivated area in 1980 was 62 hectares, and the number of producers was 649 (formerly under the jurisdiction of the Towada City Agricultural Cooperative). At that time, everything from planting to harvesting and preparation was manual work, and it seems that the cultivation area per household was about 10 ares. In 2015, the registered area was 380 hectares, the number of producers was 700, and the average cultivated area per household was 55 ares, which is about five times that of the time. It can be said that the efficiency of cultivation management, especially the mechanization of ridges, planting and harvesting work, has increased the cultivation area per household. I also heard that the shipment volume in FY2015 was 1606 tons. The garlic is planted from late September to early October and harvested from late June to early July. It seems that dried products are shipped until mid-October, and then refrigerated products are shipped in sequence. The variety cultivated in the jurisdiction is Fukuchi White, which can be cultivated in cold regions. In order to secure excellent seeds, it seems that about 300,000 garlic seeds are cultivated annually in the fields of JA’s Agricultural Technology Center and supplied to producers. JA seems to be aiming to secure a cultivation area and improve farm income by supplying excellent seeds. JA has been conducting soil diagnosis in earnest since the introduction of the computer processing system in 1981. However, until 1998, the analysis was manual work, so it seems that 400 points were diagnosed annually, mainly in garlic fields. Therefore, in 2010, we introduced a high-performance soil analyzer for about 40 million yen in a national treasury subsidy project. Furthermore, in 2010, a high-performance soil analyzer including a semi-automatic pretreatment device was introduced for about 50 million yen by utilizing the “strong agricultural grant”. As a result, advanced analysis from a large amount of elements to a trace element is possible (processing capacity: 19 items including trace elements, 40 points per person per day, annual analysis points of about 3500 points), and it seems that it meets the needs of producers. Aiming to create a distinctive production area, it seems that it is an initiative of Towada Mineral Vegetables, which started when it was nominated as a production area by a major supermarket in 2000. Mineral vegetables are vegetables cultivated with the aim of improving the soil balance by revising the conventional fertilization system that is biased toward nitrogen, phosphoric acid, and potassium, and supplementing insufficient trace elements. By such cultivation, it seems that vegetables full of vitality can be made with less fertilizer and also resistant to pests. It seems that major supermarkets have highly evaluated it as having a long shelf life and a good texture. As producers work on mineral vegetables, it seems that soil analysis by a soil analysis room must be performed for each field before planting, and fertilization based on a prescription must be performed. At the same time, JA-designated mineral materials are applied to each field. Since the results of soil analysis differ from field to field, the fertilization standards for mineral materials will also change from field to field. Set a standard value for sugar content for each item (garlic standard value: Brix value 35 or higher), and clear this standard value at the time of shipment. Those that do not meet the standard value cannot be shipped as mineral vegetables. It seems that the aim is to realize ease of production, high quality, stable high yield for producers, and to provide consumers with vegetables that have a long shelf life and sweetness. On the sales side, I hear that they are aiming to “make vegetables that sell reliably” by always securing shelves at mass retailers. From 2009, it seems that they have created the mineral vegetable character “TOM-VEGE” and are working to promote and sell mineral vegetables in an advantageous manner. It seems that garlic is collected at nine vegetable centers in the jurisdiction. During the peak season of harvesting and shipping from July to October, some collection points collect daily from 8:00 to 20:00. JA garlic is said to be able to be shipped year-round after November by performing dry heat treatment to suppress rooting and germination after refrigeration. The collected garlic is shipped to wholesale markets nationwide and sold online. Mineral garlic is shipped in bulk of 10 kg, and it seems that it is trying to reduce the labor of sorting and net packing work of 1 kg. In addition, it has developed “TOM-VEGE Premium Garlic” that has been deodorized to improve added value and brand it, and it seems that JA is purchasing garlic for processing. As processed products, “Premium Garlic Powder” and “Garlic Soul” (beverages) made from premium garlic are commercialized and sold online. Regarding the sale of fruits and vegetables, I hear that they are aiming to improve the take-home of producers by developing sales promotion activities in stores and in the media in collaboration with the “Japan Vegetable Sommelier Association” mainly in the Kanto region. Cultivation of “blurred green onions”, JA Towada Oirase Vegetable Promotion Association 231 producers. JA unifies the varieties cultivated for each cropping type, and harvests from July to November by taking advantage of the characteristics of each cultivar. Producers are planning cultivation plans by selecting varieties that suit their work styles, considering the combination with other items such as yam. Specifically, it seems that the producers are thoroughly reworking the hilling by hand in order to prevent “blurring” due to the gap between the hilling and the hilling even after the final hilling by machine is completed. It is said that the clear contrast between white and green is highly evaluated by the market as it looks good. The mainstream shipping system is individual sorting, but since 2002, joint sorting and shipping has been carried out in response to market requests, and it seems that the evaluation of jointly sorted green onions with solid sorting is increasing year by year. In addition, it seems that green onions that meet the criteria for soil diagnosis, mineral material input, and sugar content (summer 5 or higher, autumn 6 or higher) are also sold as mineral vegetables. The JA area consists of two cities, Towada City, Aomori Prefecture, Mutsu City, Oirase Town, part of Shichinohe Town, part of Tohoku Town, Oma Town, Yokohama Town, Sai Village, Kazamaura Village, and Higashiodori Village, which are located in the eastern part of Aomori Prefecture. It consists of 5 towns and 3 villages with a total area of 2,557.8 km2. In the jurisdiction, the Shimokita Peninsula, which is famous for Osorezan and Oma tuna, is scattered in the north, which has a mysterious lake, Lake Towada, with mountains of 1,000m to 1,500 m above sea level, mainly Hakkoda Mountains, in the west.The eastern Pacific Ocean is lined with gentle land formed of fertile volcanic ash soil, and is famous as one of the prefecture’s leading upland fields. “Towada City”, A beautiful town where rich nature and art are fused, such as Lake Towada, Oirase Gorge, and Hakkoda, which are woven by the four seasons and emotions, and the government office street, which is centered around the Towada Art Center. By making the most of the diverse local resources that we have carefully inherited from our predecessors and the wisdom of the citizens living in this town, and working together, more people will “want to live” and “continue to live.” We will promote community development that is strongly supported by want and want to visit, and create an ideal hometown full of hope for the future that can be passed on to children who will lead the next generation with strong pride and confidence. I will continue. It is located in the center of the southern part of the prefecture and has an area of 688.60 km2 due to the merger. The population is gradually increasing from the latter half of the Showa era to the Heisei era, and it seems that the local environment is comfortable to live in.However, it decreased temporarily in 1990 and 1999. However, it seems that there is an increasing trend now.It is formed from areas with abundant natural environments such as Mt. Hakkoda and Lake Towada, and areas with rural and urban functions, which are deeply rooted in the areas I introduced earlier. There are Hachinohe City and Misawa City within a 20 km radius of the city, and Hachinohe City in particular is a major rival city for expanding the commercial area of Towada City. I also heard that in recent years, the suburbs of Shimoda Town have had a great influence on maintaining Towada’s trade area since inviting a large shopping center. From here, I heard from my relatives, but there are concerns about local residents and local business and industry associations. As in many local cities in recent years, it seems that the central city area is becoming donuts and sprawl against the backdrop of population outflow to suburbs, declining birthrate and aging population due to the progress of motorization and lifestyle changes.Moreover, in recent years, due to the diversification of consumer needs and the widening of the range of purchasing trends due to the development of the automobile society, the outflow of customers to large stores in the suburbs of the city and large shopping centers in the Shimoda Town and Hachinohe city areas Both the trade area population and the absorption rate population have shown a significant decrease or decline. As a result, the number of retail and commercial stores in the central block has decreased, the number of vacant stores and vacant lots has increased, the retail commercial activities and attractiveness of the central city as the face of the city have declined significantly, and the decline of the central city has been accelerating. Local residents and the government are worried about such changes in the situation, and based on the Central City Invigoration Law, formulated the “Towada City Central City Invigoration Basic Plan” in August 2020.In this basic plan, based on the results of the workshops of citizens and merchants, the direction of future town development and specific items to be examined are summarized. For more information, please contact the website, government office, or parliamentary secretariat for an easy-to-understand explanation. The city was pioneered in 1859 by Mr. Tsuto NITOBE（Famous as the grandfather of Mr. Inazo NITOBE, the portrait of the previous 5000-yen bill. At the start of the business, old man was already 62 years old, and it was a challenge after the average life expectancy at that time was far beyond his 50s. At that time, farmers suffered from repeated bad harvests and famines, and migrant workers and escapes continued. Therefore, in order to stabilize rice production and save the lives of farmers, old man planned to draw water from the Oirase River and develop a 2,500 ha paddy field on the barren Sanbongihara Plateau. In addition to the investment from the clan, many investors were solicited for the funds, and the private property of the den was also used. After the introduction of advanced civil engineering technology and the labor of many farmers, after difficult construction such as tunnel construction through hard rock, it took about four years to successfully draw water into the barren wilderness. The completion of this waterway brought rice harvests to the area for the first time in the fall of 1860, and when the lord of the Morioka domain, Toshihisa-Ko, visited the waterway, the waterway was named Inaoi River. After that, the reclamation project was handed down to the local people, the waterway reached the Pacific coast, and the total length including the tributaries was 70 km. Today, it moisturizes about 5,900 ha of paddy fields and is popular with local citizens as a waterside for relaxation. In the city, there is the Nitobe Memorial Museum（BUSHIDO- 東三番町）, a museum facility whose predecessor is the Nitobe Bunko, a privately-owned company founded by Mr. Inazo NITOBE, who is famous as an international representative of Japan.） and others. Located in the central part of the green Sanbongihara plateau（It used to be a wilderness called “Sanbongi” because there are only three trees.）at the foot of magnificent mountain Hakkoda in the southeastern part of the prefecture, it is known as the eastern entrance of the national park “Lake Towada”. In addition, the southern region has produced many famous horses since the Heian and Kamakura periods, and the city has been busy with horse auctions since the horse market was held in 1863 during the feudal era. Later, the War Horse Replenishment Department was also established, and it was widely known as a horse-producing area. 国指定文化財 : 重要文化財（建造物）, 旧笠石家住宅, 昭和48年2月23日, 大字奥瀬字栃久保, 特別名勝及び天然記念物 : 十和田湖および奥入瀬渓流, 昭和27年3月29日, 十和田市, 秋田県小坂町, 天然記念物 : 法量のイチョウ, 大正15年10月20日, 大字法量字, 銀杏木, 国登録有形文化財 : 建造物, カトリック十和田教会, 平成27年8月4日, 稲生町, 県指定文化財 : 無形民俗文化財, 南部切田神楽（南部切田神楽会）, 昭和31年5月14日, 大字切田, 国の記録作成等の措置を講ずべき無形の民俗文化財, 平成16年2月6日（選択）, 無形民俗文化財南部駒踊（洞内南部駒踊保存会）, 昭和34年10月6日, 大字洞内, 国の記録作成等の措置を講ずべき無形の民俗文化財, 昭和49年12月4日（選択）, 史跡 : 一里塚（一対二基）, 昭和36年10月6日, 大字伝法寺字平窪, 史跡 : 一里塚（一対二基）, 昭和36年10月6日, 大字大沢田字池ノ平, 天然記念物 : モミの木, 昭和47年12月6日, 大字沢田字水尻山, 市指定文化財 : 有形文化財, 彫刻, 法心和尚像, 昭和40年3月30日, 大字洞内字前田, 彫刻 : 道無和尚像, 昭和40年3月30日, 大字洞内字前田, 彫刻 : 伽羅聖観世音菩薩像, 昭和40年3月30日, 大字洞内字前田, 史跡 : 法心塚, 昭和40年3月30日, 大字洞内字沼田野古文書新山神社の記録及び修験道の古記録類, 昭和43年4月3日, 大字赤沼字下平, 史跡 : 一里塚, 昭和55年1月31日, 大字相坂字白上, 古文書 : 新渡戸記念館収蔵品及び新渡戸家文書, 昭和56年4月24日, 東三番町, 史跡 : 板石塔婆, 平成2年8月23日, 大字大不動字, 柏木古文書六十六部日本廻国巡礼納経札, 平成2年8月23日, 大字伝法寺字平窪, 史跡 : 山神の石碑, 平成2年8月23日, 大字三本木字倉出, 史跡 : 金毘羅山の石碑, 平成2年8月23日, 大字三本木字倉出絵図寛文三本木村絵図, 平成10年6月19日, 元町西一丁目, 歴史資料 : 三本木原実測図, 平成11年8月23日, 東二十一番町, 史跡 : 日本廻国納経供養塔, 平成26年11月28日, 大字深持, 古文書 : 廻国奉納経帳, 平成26年11月28日, 大字奥瀬, 無形文化財 : 民俗芸能, 南部駒踊（南部駒踊米田保存会）, 昭和40年10月8日, 大字米田, 民俗芸能 : 南部駒踊（南部駒踊滝沢保存会）, 昭和40年10月8日, 大字滝沢, 民俗芸能 : 南部駒踊（南部駒踊立崎保存会）, 昭和40年10月8日, 大字立崎, 民俗芸能 : 藤島獅子舞（藤島獅子舞保存会）, 昭和46年12月13日, 大字藤島, 民俗芸能 : 南部駒踊（南部駒踊相坂若駒会）, 昭和46年12月13日, 大字相坂, 民俗芸能 : 南部洞内神楽（洞内南部神楽保存会）, 昭和55年1月31日, 大字洞内, 民俗芸能 : 沢田鶏舞（沢田鶏舞保存会）, 平成5年7月5日, 大字沢田, 民俗芸能 : 三日市神楽（三日市神楽保存会）, 平成5年7月5日, 大字沢田, 民俗芸能 : 六日町鶏舞（六日町鶏舞保存会）, 平成7年3月22日, 大字相坂, 民俗芸能 : 南部駒踊（南部駒踊上舘保存会）, 平成7年3月22日, 大字切田, 民俗芸能 : 晴山獅子舞（晴山獅子舞保存会）, 平成16年10月19日, 大字深持民俗芸能 : 南部深持神楽（南部深持神楽保存会）, 平成16年10月19日, 大字深持, 民俗芸能 : 大不動鶏舞（大不動鶏舞保存会）, 平成16年10月19日, 大字大不動, 民俗慣習 : 板ノ沢のカヤ人形作り, 平成26年11月28日, 大字深持, 天然記念物 : いちょう, 昭和55年1月31日, 大字大不動字八幡, 天然記念物 : 赤松, 昭和56年4月24日, 大字大不動字柏木. “Broad bean,” The origin is not well-established, but what appears to be a wild species has been found south of the Caspian Sea and in North Africa. Historically, there are records of cultivation in ancient Egypt and Greece, which means that humans have an old relationship of about 4000 to 5000 years. Therefore, it has become popular all over the world and has become an indispensable ingredient. It seems that there is a theory that it came from China via the Silk Road at the time of Emperor Shomu（The first prince of Emperor Monmu（天之真宗豊祖父天皇）. 天璽国押開豊桜彦天皇, 勝宝感神聖武皇帝, 沙弥勝満; Fujiwara no Miyako is her mother; 髪長姫伝説 竹取物語）in the Nara period, but the truth is uncertain. As an actual record, it first appeared in Tashikihen in the Edo period under the name of broad beans. Razan HAYASHI（又三郎, 道春）-Ko edition. Ming Lin Zhaoke-Ko wrote the flora and fauna in “The Classic of Poetry” from the classification. In the already read eyes, more than 440 titles are listed, and in addition to Chinese classical studies, there are various Chinese books such as Hundred Schools of Morocco, history books, geography, military art, and Honzo. It can be seen that the academic ability was high. It is said to be the oldest agricultural product in the world, and is produced and loved in a wide area from North Africa to the Mediterranean coast and Asia. There are different ways to eat it, and in Japan it is the mainstream to boil it in salt and eat it as it is.
Named for the clear border between green and white, it is said to be unbelievable to eat.
