In the precincts of Enmeiji Temple in Isayama, Chikusei City, Ibaraki Prefecture, about 350 years old weeping cherry tree (designated classification, city designated cultural property (natural monument) designated date, August 23, 2018, location, Isayama, Chikusei City, grounds Manager, religious corporation Enmeiji (Shingon sect Buzan-ha), age, time 350 years old, size trunk circumference 3 meters, height 9 meters, number of members 1 share. Prunus subhirtella’s weeping cherry tree, one of the best in the city Boasting a large size. The trees are vigorous and seem to bloom splendid flowers from late March to early April. The cherry blossoms that bloom like the water flowing down from the waterfall extend about 13 meters east-west and about 18 meters north-south. It seems that it has a presence that overwhelms what you see, but for some reason there is something that you can understand) seems to have reached full bloom. Many visitors are gathering in the precincts to see the flowing cherry blossoms that look like a huge waterfall with flowing flowers. According to the temple, it started to bloom around March 19th, and it seems that the flowering progressed at once due to the temperature rise from 26th to 27th. Flowering is later than last year, but it seems to be about the same as usual. According to history, it is said that Fujiwara no HIDESATO built Isa Castle in 938-947 due to the turbulence of Taira no MASAKADO. In the Middle Ages, the clan Isa dominated the area around Chikusei City. In the Northern and Southern Dynasties, Mr. Isa, who was on the Southern Court side, was attacked by the Northern Court side, and there is a legend that he escaped to Oshu when the main castles, Daiho Castle and Seki Castle, fell. From 1478, Katsuuji MIZUNOYA（（The year of birth is unknown, and it is said to be the son of Tokiuji Isenokami MIZUNOYA. During the Eikyo turbulence that occurred in 1437, he was given to the Kanto Koga Mochiuji ASHIKAGA together with his master, Mr. Yuki, and was defeated by the Shogunate army. Protected him until the end and killed him at Yuki Castle.）became the lord of the Shimodate and built the Shimodate Castle. Incorporating the idea of Feng Shui into the castle town, Dewasanzan (Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture) has five key points, including the demon gate, wind gate, sick gate, and Tenmon. Haguro Daigongen（It is watched as a god of Shinto and Buddhism based on the mountain worship and Shugendo of Mt. Haguro in Dewa Province. Based on the theory of Honji Suijaku, the Holy Kannon Bodhisattva was regarded as the Honji Suijaku god who appeared in the form of “Right” as the Honji Buddha.）was solicited and made a spiritual cornerstone. Mr. MIZUNOYA was working hard as a vassal of Mr. Yuki, but became independent, survived the Warring States period while being a small lord, and was relieved of 31,000 koku (later about 50,000 koku of rice) under the HIDEYOSHI administration and established the Shimodate domain. After that, Kiyokata UESUGI in the Kanto region searched for Tokiuji’s orphan in order to revive Mizunoya, and it is said that Katsuuji was found. He was given 12 Naganuma hometown and 33 Isa hometown for his efforts to revive the Yuki clan as a senior vassal. In 1478, he founded Yakushido, and in 1481, he invited Buddhist priest “良室榮欣” (priest of Yuki Jokokuji V). The temple name was changed to “Jorinji Temple（曹洞宗; 岡芹町）” after the opening of the mountain and Katsuuji（定林寺殿玉叟了圓大居士）-Ko. In 1481, it was protected as a successive Bodhisattva temple, and the Mizunoya family donated 150 koku of rice of the temple territory and built Dou. The bronze bell donated by KATSUTOSHI MIZUNOYA in 1567 (Muromachi period work, 4 cases of 4 steps of milk, total height 89 cm, diameter 49 cm) remains and was designated as an important cultural property designated by Ibaraki Prefecture in 1963. Many Dou, temple treasures, and records were destroyed by fire in 1880, but they were later rebuilt.）In the same year, the Haguro Daigongen of Dewasanzan (Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture) was solicited to establish the Kamihaguro Shrine and the Shimohaguro Shrine. When MIZUNOYA Family transferred to Bichu Nariwa in 1639, it seems that the feudal lord changed to Matsudaira, Masuyama, Inoue, and Kuroda in a relatively short period of time. When Fusashige ISHIKAWA-Ko became the feudal lord with 20,000 koku in 1732, the Ishikawa family celebrated the Meiji Restoration for nine consecutive generations. In addition, Shimodate, Chikusei City, which is a castle, has been economically developed as a post town on the Yuki Highway, where many supplies have been brought in and it has become a collection place for “cotton,” which is a special product. Shimodate City, Former Makabe District ; Sekijo Town, Akeno Town, and Kyowa Town merged to form March 28, 2005.

The altitude is about 20 m to 60 m, and in the north there is a hilly area that connects to a part of the Abukuma mountain range, and the altitude is about 200 m. The climate is Pacific, mild and refreshing throughout the four seasons. As for the road system, National Road No. 50 is developed in the east-west direction and National Road No. 294 is developed in the north-south direction, and the intersection of these two lines becomes the center of the city. Furthermore, prefectural roads will be radiated from here to Ishioka City, Tsukuba City, and Koga City. The JR Mito Line runs from east to west, and the Moka Railway Moka Line runs from Shimodate Station to Toride in the south and Motegi（Not Motogi, Itako City, but different reading）in the north.

Due to the recent natural orientation, it has become popular and has taken root in the streets. In addition, there are many long-established confectioneries loved by literati in the Shimodate district, which prospered as the center of commerce and culture in the area. The city is also widely known as a large production area for red pears, which boasts one of the largest acreages in Japan. Due to pesticide-reduced cultivation, strict fruit selection, and traditional cultivation techniques, its beauty is outstandingly designated as a brand production area in the prefecture. The main varieties are the popular varieties of “Kosui Pear” and “Hosui Pear” and the large “Nitaka Pear”, which are in season from summer to autumn. Recently, it is also focusing on the production of “Akizuki Pear” and “Keisui Pear: Ibaraki’s first original variety produced by the prefecture over 17 years. It is a hybrid of Shinsetsu and Chikusui pear, and has a sugar content of about 13 degrees, a strong sweetness, and a moderately refreshing acidity”. Ibaraki Prefecture has a history of pear cultivation since the Edo period and is one of the oldest pear producing areas in Japan. July 4th is “Nashi Pear Day”, pears in Ibaraki Prefecture start in July. Pear production is the second largest in Japan. The climate with a large temperature difference between day and night, abundant water, and blessed soil are suitable for pear cultivation.

From the beginning of July, starting with house pear (Kosui), which grows pears in a house that is rare in Japan, we will start with delicious pears while changing varieties such as “Shimotsuma Kanjuku pear”, Keisui, Hosui, Akizuki, Niitaka, and smile. You can enjoy it until around the time. Greenhouse-grown pears (Kosui) will be distributed from July, and the open field will be from early August to late August.

Chikusei City forms the largest pear producing area in the prefecture. The history of pear cultivation in the area is old, and cultivation began in 1857 in the former Sekijo Town and in 1860 in the former Shimodate City. Former Shimodate City was designated as a fruit and vegetable brand production area in the prefecture in 1985, and Sekijo Town was designated in 1991. As for the varieties, “Kosui” and “Hosui pear” account for almost 80-90%, and late-maturing “Akizuki pear” and “Niitaka pear” seem to account for the rest. The introduction of “Nikkori pear” as a new variety is progressing, and some new varieties such as “Keisui pear” are being cultivated. In addition to open-field cultivation, simple cover cultivation to protect from rain (1983-), unheated cover cultivation (1993-), and warm cultivation (1991-) have been introduced in some of the production areas to disperse labor. It is an effective means of expanding the cropping season. Since 2016, the city has been supporting Japanese agriculture by working on an agricultural product branding promotion project for the purpose of promoting agricultural products to the outside of the city, revitalizing the production area by increasing added value, and fostering attachment to local agricultural products. City and Aoba party Youth brand name “Mirakuru WATERMELON”, It’s blessed with climatic conditions, and the sunshine hours in January, which’s the planting season, are very long. In addition, the area where there’s little damage from typhoons. in sugar content about 4 degrees between the center and the skin. Himekansen No. 5 (Marutane Co., Ltd .: Headquarters, Shimokyo-ku, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture, the flesh is as crisp as it is. It has a glossy skin. The flesh is thin, about 3 mm, and it has sufficient hardness and cannot be broken by a small amount. It is gaining popularity as a variety with significantly less watermelon cracking during transportation and physiological fruit cracking during growth. The small ball is in season in summer, but the seedling company responded to the voice of small ball watermelon in the summer when watermelon is the most delicious. The first fruit is harvested from April to mid-May, and then the second until June. It seems that there is a tendency to harvest fruits. It is surprising that the quality of the second fruit is the same as that of the first fruit. It has a strong crispness with a sugar content of 13 degrees or more and the taste is the best. It seems that there is almost no softening. Also, it is a variety mainly grown in greenhouse and large tunnels, and it seems to be suitable for August harvesting in open field cultivation and October-December harvesting in controlled cultivation. There are only two differences when measured during trial climate, and it’s a variety that can be eaten deliciously even near the skin. Kansen WATERMELON (large ball) From the beginning, the grass is strong, the leaves are rather large, the vines are thick, and it seems that the outbreak of watermelons often occurs all at once. The expression of female flowers in the low temperature period is good, the pollen power is strong, the fruit set in the forward cultivation is easy, stable harvest can be expected, and it seems to be a cultivar with strong disease resistance. The fruits show a clear and thick 1-row group on a dark green area, and the high-waisted view gives a strong and voluminous impression. It has strong transportability, and although it is a fast-growing type, it is a large ball with an average of 6 kg, and it seems that the deformed fruit is extremely small and the excellent product rate is high. The flesh is bright red, the fiber is very fine, the flesh is dense and crispy, the sugar content is 12 degrees or more, the stable period of the flesh is long as an early-maturing species, the store is good, and the taste is good. In addition, it is a variety that has little deterioration in meat quality and taste even when cultivated on a squash stand. Suitable for advanced cultivation of green house and large tunnel cultivation, it is said that it is about 48 to 52 days after flowering in May harvest, 42 to 45 days after flowering in June harvest, and 35 to 40 days after flowering in July harvest.
In Ibaraki prefecture, it is produced in large quantities around Chikusei City and Sakuragawa City, and it seems that it has a history of about 60 years as a production area. It is an area where the night temperature is low in winter and it is easy to spend long hours of sunshine during the day, and it is suitable for squid cultivation, and the production of small ball squid is the highest in the country. Every year, shipments begin around March, and the peak of shipments is reached from May to June. The skin is thin, the texture is crunchy, the taste is rich and the sugar content is high at 12 to 14 degrees, and the sweetness to the edge of the skin is the reason why it is called repeaters.
The Small ball watermelon is not a small one of the Large ball watermelon, but a new variety of watermelon that was born through the accumulation of breeding and the introduction of biotechnology. One of the reasons for its popularity is that it can be eaten deliciously up to the skin and that it is reasonably sized to fit in the refrigerator. An excellent living environment for watermelon is a germination temperature of 25 to 30 ° C. The practical minimum germination temperature is about 15 ℃, and the maximum germination temperature seems to be 40 ℃. It seems that the optimum temperature for growth is around 25 ℃. Since it is a high-temperature crop among melons, it is resistant to high temperatures, and although it depends on the variety and soil conditions, it seems that it can withstand a maximum temperature of 40 ° C. However, it is vulnerable to low temperatures, and when the minimum temperature drops below 13 ° C, it grows extremely poorly and the fruits may crack.
At the Gogyo River, which is near the excellent watermelon producing area, it seems that you can see the shadow of the fish running up and the state of spawning up close from the riverbank. The Kinugawa River is sponsored by the Kinu Kokai Fishery Cooperative (Ozakata, Chikusei City) and holds salmon catching, egg collection tours, and salmon fry release events.
