Immediately before the establishment of the Edo Shogunate, the old retainer Suruga Ishida of the Edo lord of a castle, YORITSUNA TOKI, Hitachi Province, started developing a newly reclaimed rice field in 1591 with the permission of the local magistrate Sataro Yoshida. It is reported that this was the origin of Kaminoshima (currently Inashiki City, Ibaraki Prefecture). It is a newly reclaimed rice field that looks like a so-called local magistrate, and it seems that a newly reclaimed rice field village has appeared on the sandbank that was deposited in the swamp under the initiative of the local strongman.
