In the AZUMA Town district, there is a Konaka lion dance that is said to have been introduced from Kyoto. It seems to be danced at Chokai Shrine, which enshrines Abe no Muneto, a powerful family nearly 1000 years old. It’s unclear what happened, but about 1160 years ago, Oshu’s lord Abe no Sadato went against the imperial court and was defeated by a large army led by Minamoto no Yoriyoshi. His younger brother, Muneto, was taken prisoner, and when he was sent to Kyoto, some of the servants who longed for him accompanied him to the area, but he was not allowed to go up to Kyoto by the order of the imperial court and was forced to indigenous to the area. Minamoto no Yoriyoshi won the “Zen Kunen no Eki” (Early Nine-Years Campaign), killing Abe no Sadato, the ancestor of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and his younger brother Abe. It seems that no Muneto was taken back to the city as a prisoner of war. At Capital, nobles from Emishi or Ezo of Mutsu (Mr. Fujiwarano, who has ruled Mutsu for almost 100 years from the 11th century to the 12th century, for four generations, are not only in the field of history but also in the field of anthropology. However, it seems that he was very interested in it. Mr. Fujiwarano, along with Abeno uji and Kiyohara uji, was a race of Ezo, and was therefore thought to be an Ainu), but one of them was Ume. He showed a branch of a flower and asked, “Muneto, what is this?” With contempt that people in the remote areas would not understand the style of capital. Then he wrote a song and answered, “In Japan, it’s called plum blossom, but in capital, what do you call it?”, So there is an anecdote that everyone was surprised.

The site was about 5 kg deeper than Kochu Otaki, and it seems that it was a place where mobile phones could not be reached. It seems that a woman in her 70s and 80s in Kiryu City was on board the stranded vehicle. A presentation ceremony was held at the station, and he happened to pass by, but he said he was old and thought he had to help. The male chief helped the rescue for a long time.
