It seems that it was named with the meaning of the king of yellow apples. Therefore, it seems that it is sometimes written as “kiou apples”.
JA Tsugaru Hirosaki decided to make an additional payment to the producers in response to the sharp drop in the estimated 2021 rice producers, mainly due to the drop in demand for eating out due to the corona disaster. JA Tsugaru Hirosaki held a press conference on December 22nd to announce support measures. Then, “Tsugaru Roman Rice (from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries variety registration homepage, variety name application number 8664 at the time of application publication, application date 1996/03/26, application publication date 1999/03/12, registration No. 8280, registration date 2000/09/05, duration of breeder’s right 20 years, extinction date of breeder’s right 2020/09/06, name and address of expired variety registrant, Local Incorporated Administrative Agency Aomori Prefecture Industrial Technology Center (8 Tanaka, Kuroishi City, Aomori Prefecture)

Therefore, distinction is recognized by the short culm length, different estimated blast resistance gemtypes, etc.) ”, And there are more varieties, and the estimated blast resistance genotype is Pi-a, It is said that distinction is recognized by being Pi-i etc.) ”And“ Masigura Rice ”producer, about 1200 people who are shipping rice to JA Tsugaru Hiromae, 600 yen per 60 kg 12 Additional payment is made on the 24th of the month. “Aomori Prefecture” is located in the northernmost part of Honshu（Oshu: Generally refers to Mutsu Province (the Prefectures of Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima）, Japan, and is famous for its role in supporting the foundation of agriculture.It is divided into three areas, Tsugaru, the southern part, and Shimokita, based on the historical background, and it still looks strong and clear. The teachings of our predecessors, who have built their own culture based on the local climate, history（Dating back to the middle of the Jomon period, from B.C. 3000 to B.C. 2000, the remains believed to be the trace of large-scale hottate bashira have been excavated at the Sannai-Maruyama site. On the other hand, rice-paddies did not spread in the Nansei Islands and Sakhalin/Hokkaido, therefore, the Shell mound period and then the Gusuku period followed the Jomon period in the Nansei Islands and Post Jomon period then Satsumon period followed after the Jomon period in Sakhalin/Hokkaido (Although there was an example of a rice-paddy during the early Yayoi period shown in the Tareyanagi site in Aomori Prefecture, rice-paddy cultivation also did not widely spread in Tohoku region in Honshu until the middle to the late Yayoi period and some theoretical views that Post Jomon period followed as in Hokkaido.)）and climate, are still warm. The forest area occupies about 66% of the total land of the prefecture. There are many active volcanoes such as Mt. Iwaki, Mt. Hakkoda, and Mt. Osorezan. The Ou Mountains run vertically in the center, and from the Hakkoda Mountains, which is the northern end of the Mountains, to the Natsudomari Peninsula. It is divided into the eastern part (south of the prefecture) and the western part (Tsugaru) with the central mountain range leading to the western part of the Shimokita Peninsula as the boundary. In the southwestern part, the Shirakami Mountains, which has been registered as a ‘World Natural Heritage Site’ as the world’s largest virgin forest of fagus crenata blume, is colored. The Tsugaru Peninsula can be seen north of the Tsugaru Plain, and Tappizaki can be seen at the northern end.Japan’s largest sand hills, Sarugamori sand, continue for 17 km along the Pacific coast, and the largest Ogawara lake in the prefecture (62 km2). From the north to the Shimokita Peninsula, Omazaki welcomes you to the northernmost tip of Honshu. Surrounded by the Sea of Japan, the Tsugaru Straits and the Pacific Ocean on three sides, the total coastline is approximately 796 km. It holds Mutsu Bay, which is a large inner bay, in the center: As a production area for farmed scallops（Mizuhopecten yessoensis（Ezo; Emishi）(Jay, 1856)）, it is entertaining tourists and others.In the surrounding area, the tsushima current moves northward along the sea of Japan, and a part of it enters the tsugaru strait and becomes warm current, moving southward in the Pacific Ocean. Offshore, this Tsugaru warm current, the “Oyashio” Current from the north, and the “Kuroshio（Black）” Current from the south continue to collide over time. A lot of plankton that feed fish are generated in the sea area where they collide with each other, and many fish gather and a rich fishing ground prospers. The climate varies greatly depending on the region, especially the heavy snowfall in the Tsugaru region in winter and the Pacific side in summer; The easterlies (Yamase) is a typical difference. In the emotional winter, cold and moist air hits the Ou Mountains and snows in the Tsugaru region. On the Pacific side, I hear from residents that there are many dry sunny days with the Ou Mountains as a barrier. Since summer is cold and moist, there are many cold and humid days on the Pacific side. You can enjoy the beautiful natural environment because the changing seasons are clear. Aomori Nebuta (the nighttime festival in Aomori) (Aomori City, Aomori Prefecture) : A total of more than 2 million tourists visit each year, and it seems that the voice of joy can be heard so far（A summer festival to be held from August 2nd to 7th）; The three major festivals in the Tohoku region（The six festivals are the Aomori Nebuta Festival, the Akita Kanto Festival, the Morioka Sansa Odori Festival, the Yamagata Hanagasa Festival, the Sendai Tanabata Festival, and the Fukushima Waraji Festival）. It is said that it is a variant of the Tanabata festival lanterns, but its origin is unknown to its predecessors. “Tanabata Festival” that came from China during the Nara period (710-794) + The customs that have been in Tsugaru since ancient times and events such as sending spirits, dolls, and sending insects are integrated. It is speculated that when bamboo and candles became widespread, they became lanterns, which changed into dolls and fan “Nebuta”. The Tanabata Festival is a Misogi（Ablution）event that drains dirt into rivers and the sea on the night of July 7. However, there also exists toro which are used indoors as on a Buddhist altar, such as oki road (one variety of nonbasic-type ishi road, which has no sao and therefore whose chudai is directly mounted on a natural stone serving as a base, note: the term “nonbasic” means that any of the basic parts of ishi road, that is, hoju, kasa, hibukuro, chudai, sao and kiso, is missing) and tsuri road (hanging toro), as well as being a portable toro for use in a festival (such as one used in Nebuta Festival, which is held in Aomori Prefecture, and Yamaga road used in Kumamoto Prefecture).Shed the lanterns and prayed to her ancestors for a disease-free life. Folklore distribution and dialectology such as Tohoku region, Shinetsu region “Nemburi sink”, Kanto region “Nebuchi sink, Neboke sink, Nemutta sink”; Nebuta:Ritual to banish the sleep demon (esp. in Tohoku). The honey is marbling and the sweetness is very strong and very rich. Other folk events having a characteristic of the preliminary celebration include events of literally, rice planting in the garden such as ‘literally, race planting in snow’ in Yoshida, Yokote City, Akita Prefecture and ‘Enburi (a rice planting dance named after a tool for rice field preparation)’ in Hachinohe City, Aomori Prefecture. Over again, ‘Lake Towada and the Oirase-gawa River’ ranging from Akita Prefecture to Aomori Prefecture is designated in the two categories of ‘Special Places of Scenic Beauty’ and ‘Natural Monuments’ for its values. “Hirosaki City”, Located in the western part of Prefecture, it is famous as the third largest city in the prefecture after Aomori City and Hachinohe City in terms of population. It is an inland area with a total area of 524.12 km2 and overlooks the Hakkoda mountain range in the Ou Mountains to the east. It has the highest peak of Mt. Iwaki called “Tsugaru Fuji apple” in the west, and the Shirakami Mountains, which is registered as a World Heritage Site, straddles Akita in the south. In the plains, it originates in the Shirakami Mountains（The season for mountain hiking in the Shirakami Mountain Range has come with beech trees shooting buds!）. The Iwaki River, a first-class river with the largest basin area in the prefecture that flows into the Sea of Japan via Jusan Lake, flows north for about 30 km. The Hirakawa River and Aseishikawa River meet, and the fertile and vast Tsugaru Plain in the basin forms one of the best grain-producing areas in Aomori Prefecture. In the small hills around the plain, there is a 5.44 km2 orchard that produces about 40% of the core agricultural products, apples. The forest area stretches around the orchard and becomes an area blessed with a lush natural environment. Overview of my favorite Hirosaki city（Takaoka; iwaki Town）; During World War II, the war ended after avoiding war damage. Developed as a cultural city based on numerous cultural heritage represented by castles and cherry blossoms and a blessed natural environment. Merged with 12 surrounding towns and villages in 1955 and 1957. Aiming to become the largest apple-producing area in Japan, a garden city of apples and rice. The population is declining, the birthrate is declining and the population is aging, and the daily living area is expanding. Responding appropriately to these issues as the environment surrounding rural areas changes drastically; I hope that it will be a comfortable city for everyone to live in. As we now face a new age of population decline and an aging society, small and medium retailers and other businesses that are rooted in their individual communities are asked to try new projects and new system development in order to work for the realization of a society in which it is comfortable to live and lives are rich. The sense of cardboard in the photo is outstanding. Indeed, a survey of people’s views regarding the importance of city centers reveals that providing a “hospitable environment for the elderly to live” is considered to be one of the most important roles of city centers. “Kuroishi City”, It is located almost in the center of the prefecture. It is blessed with abundant nature and abundant hot springs, with the Tsugaru Plain on three sides and the Hakkoda Mountains on the east.In an old castle town known for producing tasty “Kuroishi Rice” and “Kuroishi Apple”. We are promoting town development with the aim of becoming a colorful and attractive “country tourism industry city” in the season.Important preservation district of historic buildings: Nakamachi Komise Street（It is said that Komise, which is a major feature of the merchant town, was encouraged by the first lord of Kuroishi, Nobufusa Tsugaru-Ko, when he divided the town. In 1656, Meireki learned 5,000 koku from the Hirosaki clan. Later, it became private land when the land tax was revised in the Meiji era. Despite becoming a completely private property, it still exists as a public space without obstructing the passage of people. The hood in front of the town house facing the street is called Komise in Aomori and Akita Region.）and autumn colors famous place “Nakano Momijiyama”. At the same time, “Kuroishi fried soba” and “Tsuyu fried soba” are attracting attention nationwide. “Sun-Fuji apple”, Which is cultivated without a purse, can be exposed to Sun light compared to Fuji Apple, and tends to have a stronger sweetness. Rich in sweetness made by crossing Ralls Janet（Kokko; Originated in the United States Commonwealth of Virginia（caleb ralls farm）. Around 1868 (Keio 4, the first year of the Meiji era) or (Meiji 4). In Japan, it has been active as a key variety of apple production for more than 100 years in the Meiji, Taisho and Showa eras. The unification of names was realized in 1900 (Meiji 33), and until then, the names differed depending on the region. It is useful as the latest species.）and Delicious, with plenty of juice and crunchy. This is a selection of products. Only those that have passed the sugar content, appearance, coloring, shape, etc., checked with an optical sensor（transmitted light）, It（ refers to the light that has passed through an object, but this tomato is a beautiful product. Beer–Lambert–Bouguer law; Pierre Bouguer（仏）, August Beer, Johann Heinrich Lambert（独）, transmittance : Percentage of incident light of a specific wavelength passing through the sample（Optics）. A method that stabilizes the absorption of light by substances. Fresnel equations: Fresnel coefficient（仏, Fresnel coefficient）; amplitude reflection coefficient（偏光の振幅透過係数）; amplitude transmission coefficient（偏光の反射係数）And, conducted an impact survey of radioactive substances before shipping. Honey（Sorbitol; It tends to be made from leaves by photosynthesis and carried into the fruit. It is converted into fructose and sucrose, which are the sources of sweetness in the fruit. However, when it is fully ripe, it stops converting to sugar and absorbs water as it is.）sensor; Measure the size of the flesh, which has become transparent and yellow around the core. Due to the special electronic circuit technology, it is almost unaffected by indoor lighting and outdoor sun light, and is almost unaffected by outside air temperature. In a general example, an apple is placed on a circular rubber sheet base on the edge of an infrared irradiation window and pressed by hand for measurement. Only high class for gifts that has all the elements of sugar content, taste, and color. “Controlled Atmosphere Storage: Air Conditioning”, Artificially change the atmospheric composition in the storage and combine it with refrigeration -Long-term storage of fruits and vegetables such as fruits. After harvesting fruits and vegetables -It has a physiology effect and loses nutrients due to respiration during storage. In addition, although the quality deteriorates, the respiratory action is suppressed by lowering the oxygen concentration – Deterioration of quality is suppressed and storability is increased. There seems to be 21% oxygen in the air. The method lowers the oxygen concentration and raises the carbon dioxide concentration. Fruits and vegetables – Respiration is greatly suppressed when stored under low oxygen and high carbon dioxide conditions. In addition, it suppresses the decomposition of chlorophyll and the production of ethylene, which is a maturation and aging hormone -Numerous metabolism suppressed. Low oxygen and high carbon dioxide in the atmosphere inside the storage: Oxygen contained in the air in the storage is burned with propane gas -Convert this to carbon dioxide and lower the oxygen concentration -Controls the concentration by adsorbing and removing excess carbon dioxide on activated charcoal. General atmospheric composition : 2-5% oxygen, 2-10 carbon dioxide. APPLE : Respiratory activity increases in the early stages of puberty, reaching peak in the latter half and then aging. Depending on the type of fruits, the oxygen concentration and carbon dioxide concentration suitable for storage differ. However, it depends on the variety. Extreme hypoxia – Anaerobic respiration occurs and stink components such as ethanol and acetaldehyde are produced – In addition, the commercial value is impaired, and enormous damage is unavoidable. High concentration of carbon dioxide – Carbon dioxide injury such as internal browning and softening of meat occurs. Attention is required because the suitable oxygen and carbon dioxide concentration ranges are relatively narrow. Also, it seems that it is used in combination with low temperature, but I am learning. Optimal conditions are 1-3% oxygen for stored apples. Also, humidity 90-95%, storability for 9 months. It can be expected to have a great effect on germination suppression and green retention. Aomori Nebuta (the nighttime festival in Aomori) (Aomori City, Aomori Prefecture) : A total of more than 2 million tourists visit each year, and it seems that the voice of joy can be heard so far（A summer festival to be held from August 2nd to 7th）; The three major festivals in the Tohoku region（The six festivals are the Aomori Nebuta Festival, the Akita Kanto Festival, the Morioka Sansa Odori Festival, the Yamagata Hanagasa Festival, the Sendai Tanabata Festival, and the Fukushima Waraji Festival）. It is said that it is a variant of the Tanabata festival lanterns, but its origin is unknown to its predecessors. “Tanabata Festival” that came from China during the Nara period (710-794) + The customs that have been in Tsugaru since ancient times and events such as sending spirits, dolls, and sending insects are integrated. It is speculated that when bamboo and candles became widespread, they became lanterns, which changed into dolls and fan “Nebuta”. The Tanabata Festival is a Misogi（Ablution）event that drains dirt into rivers and the sea on the night of July 7. Shed the lanterns and prayed to her ancestors for a disease-free life. Folklore distribution and dialectology such as Tohoku region, Shinetsu region “Nemburi sink”, Kanto region “Nebuchi sink, Neboke sink, Nemutta sink” ; Nebuta: Ritual to banish the sleep demon (esp. in Tohoku). The honey is marbling and the sweetness is very strong and very rich. “Local idol: Alps otome” ,The taste of apples is small but firm. It was named after the “candy apple” that you often see at local food stalls. Member’s named is given a lot of surnames as “an idol who supports Apple Farmer”. The office is Apple music. It seems that he is mainly active in Hirosaki City. Just pause the communication of information from the member in formula vlog. Perform live at events. She is active in various fields such as live performances at kindergartens, nursery schools, and welfare facilities, and regular appearances on radio. What impresses me is singing in sign language, probably because of their efforts and training. We would like to support and pay attention to it with a little effort. Apple’s daughter’s sister unit, which has been active for more than 10 years while repeatedly replacing members. The Japanese female dance and vocal unit encourages us and makes us think about where our hearts are. From rural areas to the whole country. How many adults are encouraged by the courage of young people? Peach in Aomori Prefecture has been cultivated mainly in the Sanpachi area for a long time, but in recent years, the cultivated area has been increasing mainly in the Central and South areas. “Fujisaki Town”, Minamitsugaru District is located in the center of the Tsugaru Plain, Aomori Prefecture. It borders Aomori City and Kuroishi City in the east, Hirosaki City in the west, Itayanagi Town in the north, and Inakadate Village in the south. It is about 25 km from the town center to Aomori City, the capital of the prefecture, and about 9 km to Hirosaki City. With a total area of 37.29 km2, there are no mountains or wilderness in the town area, and the geology belongs to the Quaternary alluvium, and it is blessed with fertile soil suitable for agriculture. The climate is relatively warm in the Tsugaru Plain, and it is rich in variety, with rich nature surrounded by water and greenery adding color to the four seasons. Former Fujisaki Town is the earliest open land in Tsugaru, and it is believed that people have lived there since prehistoric times because pottery from the late Jomon period was excavated. In the role of nine years ago (1051), an army led by Minamoto no Yoriyoshi and Yoshiie defeated Mr. Abe, a powerful family in Oshu. It is said that Fujisaki is said to be “the birthplace of Tsugaru’s history” because it is said that he built a castle and established Mr. Ando. Based in Fujisaki, which is proud of it, it expanded its power, advanced to Jusan Lake, flew over the Sea of Japan against the background of a strong navy and fleet, and reigned as the champion of Kitaoshu. “The Legend of Gozen” and six plate monuments presumed to be from the Northern and Southern Dynasties have been found, and it is presumed that they had reached a high cultural level under the influence of Kamakura. After Mr. Ando moved out of Tsugaru, he was ruled by Mr. Nanbu, and after the rise of Mr. Tsugaru (Oura) at the end of the 16th century, he was ruled throughout the feudal era. As a village, important public facilities such as a representative office, a hawk waiting area (a place to capture hawks donated to the shogunate), a brewery (a base for collecting and shipping rice grains), and a transmission horse (a base for transporting goods and documents) are established. In 1889, with the enforcement of the “city system and town / village system”, Fujisaki Town, which merged with Fujikoshi Village and Katsuno Village, and Nakajima Village, Obata Village, Yazawa Village, Mizunuma Village, Nakanome Village, Gobayashi Village, and Nishi Nakanome Village, Yoshimukai Village, Kameoka Village, Tawara Village, Shimo Tawara Village, and Kashiwagi Dam Village merged to form a 12-里 village, but in 1955 Fujisaki-cho and 12-里 village merged on an equal footing, and in 1956. It seems that Hayashizaki was separated from Itayanagi Town and merged into the former Fujisaki Town. In the Kamakura period, the former Tokiwa village became the official position of Ezo Satan as a miuchibito of Mr. Hojo, and in the Muromachi period, it was related to Mr. Ando, a powerful family of Tsugaru who was incorporated into the Kyoto Miuchibito, and Mr. Kitahata of the South Dynasty. It seems that the place name derived from the ruins of the warlord’s mansion remains. In the Kamakura period, Kui Natan was said to have been built on a hill surrounded by the Togawa and Namioka rivers (Tokiwa Village magazine). Fukudate is also said to have been attached from a fort built in the Ando period in the Middle Ages. It is said that Kumanomiya was solicited as a mansion god. It is the ruins of the Heijo mansion. The place name of Tokawabata (currently Fukushima district) can be seen in the middle name of Tsugaru-gun. In this way, it was cultivated as a rich rice-growing area from early on. With the enforcement of the municipal system in 1889, it became Tokiwa Village and Tomiki Tate Village, and in 1924, the villagers’ long-cherished desire to open “Kita Tokiwa Station” on the Ou Main Line (between Hiromae and Aomori) was realized. With the founding of Transport Co., Ltd., the transportation of straw products in addition to rice and apple agricultural products has become active, bringing great results to the daily lives of villagers and greatly contributing to the development of industrial development. As the first merger, Tokiwa Village and Tomiki Tate Village merged, and in 1955, the-department of the Mitsuya district of the neighboring village Rokukan Village was incorporated to become the former Tokiwa Village. New Fujisaki Town was born as the smallest town in the prefecture by the equal merger of former Fujisaki Town and former Tokiwa Village on March 28, 2005. It seems that New Town is promoting new town development in order to take advantage of the favorable location conditions, inherit the results of town development that each town and village has been working on, and further develop and leap forward in the future. Under the slogan of “a rich and gentle town created by everyone,” “a town that entrusts the future to children, a town that is easy to grow,” “a town that connects cities, a town that is easy to go out,” and “a town that is fragrant with water and green rural culture,” I will aim. Located at the southern tip of the Tsugaru region in Aomori Prefecture: Owani Town, Minamitsugaru is blessed with abundant nature and greenery, and builds new facilities in the old tradition, allowing you to enjoy the beauty of each season as the back room of Tsugaru. About 50 km from Aomori City, the prefecture’s capital. It borders Hirosaki City on the north-west side, Hirakawa City on the east side, and Akita Prefecture on the south side. Our town, which is promoting the creation of a town full of dreams and vibrancy, will continue to be loved as Tsugaru’s Okuzashiki, aiming for a more comfortable life for people, centered on skiing, hot springs and apples. That’s it. Location: 140 degrees 34 minutes 18 east longitude, 40 degrees 30 minutes 56 north latitude (latitude and longitude of Owani Town Hall), wide area: East-west 20.5 km, North-south 16.4 km, Area: 163.43 km2. There are various theories about the origin of the slightly mysterious place name, but since there was a large Amida Nyorai sitting statue long ago, what was called “Oamida” gradually changed from “Oami” to “Oani”. It is said that the crocodile was eventually associated with being the guardian deity of Buddhism and became known as the “Owani”. As you can see from these origins, Owani Town is a town closely related to Buddhism in the neighboring area, and the sitting statue of Amida Nyorai, which has been designated as a national important cultural property, is still enshrined. It is a cold region with a lot of snow in winter, and due to this, skiing as a leisure and competition is still popular. Of course, this kind of ski culture was not born naturally. Its history goes back to the Taisho era. Mr. Yasuo Atomu, the postmaster of Owani at that time, decided to spread skiing to the town to relieve the stress of young people and make it a specialty of Owani, and asked Mr. Sadasaku Aburagawa, a soldier from Owani. Request cooperation. At first, Mr. Yukawa was reluctant to say, “Owani has no fever,” but at the end, he agreed on the condition that Mr. Atomu would collect participants and ski equipment. As a result of these efforts, the first ski class was held in Owani in 1921, and three years later, in 1925, the All Japan Ski Championship was successfully held, and since then, nationwide ski competitions have been held frequently in the town. Has been done. In addition, as a special product of the town, there is the traditional vegetable “Owani Onsen Bean Sprouts”, which was cultivated before 350 years and was presented to the Tsugaru feudal lord at that time. This Owani Onsen bean sprout is characterized by its unique aroma and crispy texture, and it seems that the manufacturing method is still confidential information that only the producer can know. And, as the name suggests, Owani Hot Spring bean sprouts are cultivated using the Owani hot springs that spring from the basement. The town is an old hot spring town. According to one theory, its origin is said to be more than 800 years ago, and it is said that the Buddhist priest Enchi Shonin, who was traveling in the eastern country at that time, discovered Owani Onsen. While building a temple in Owani, one day a dream of Enchi, who fell ill, told a child that “there is a hot spring in this area. You should take a bath on the day of the Ox.” It is said that he recovered when he obeyed. In addition, Tsugaru Tamenobu, who became the first Tsugaru feudal lord in the Edo period, is said to have healed his eye disease when he washed his eyes at Owani Onsen according to his dream. “Hirakawa City”, It is located at the southern end of the Tsugaru Plain in the southern part of Aomori Prefecture. Towada City and Kosaka Town, Akita Prefecture, bordering Towada Lake in the east. The west borders Hirosaki City and Owani Town across the Hirakawa River. To the north are Aomori City, Kuroishi City, and Inakadate Village. The south is an anchor type adjacent to Akita Prefecture, with a total area of 346.01 km2. The terrain is part of the Tsugaru Plain and has fertile soil geology suitable for agriculture. Flat land used as a paddy field and hills at an altitude of 20 to 300 m. A plateau used as a combined management zone for paddy rice and Apple, a mountainous area that belongs to a part of the Hakkouda / Towada volcanic group. Most of them are national forests（A forest cultivation system in which the people of a nation invest in government-owned forests and fields:shared forest system）. The climate of the city belongs to the Sea of Japan climate. Hakkoda Mountains in the east and Mt. Iwaki in the west are surrounded by mountains on all sides, so the climate is stable and warm throughout the year. It is said that it is the most blessed area in the prefecture with little temperature difference. There is a lot of greenery, and the natural environment where people can lead a comfortable life is maintained, and the changes of the four seasons are beautiful. It is also famous for having relatively few natural disasters. Former Hiraka Town: Many ruins from the Paleolithic period to the early modern period have been confirmed, and it seems that the footprints of ancestors can be seen everywhere. As a result of repeated mergers of towns and villages, the town boasts one of the largest areas and populations in the prefecture, and as a result, the terrain in the region has been divided into three categories, flat land, plateau, and mountainous area, depending on the altitude and shape. The flat land is composed of paddy fields and urban areas, the plateau is a complex area of paddy fields and apples, and the mountains are vast forest areas connected to Minami Hakkoda, where high-cold vegetables are cultivated in a cool climate.

Yellow apples are not only rare, they also seem to make consumers and apple farmers happy. It seems that the number of farmers who are introducing yellow varieties is increasing as the aging of farmers and labor shortages progress because yellow varieties do not require time and effort for coloring management such as leaf picking. However, it is difficult to determine the optimum harvest time and it is difficult to align the ripening time, so it seems necessary to harvest all at once (Garamogi). In the past, some yellow apples that had been stripped off early to escape from typhoon damage appeared on the market, and it seems that they had a hard time selling due to the variation in taste. In order to prevent this from happening again, it seems that they are considering the timely harvest by conducting a maturity survey, utilizing color charts and hand charts, and making various ingenuity.
