Although Hiratakinuma Park (Kizukuritateoka Kamisawabe) is located in a lowland area, the wind of the Sea of Japan blows in, so you can feel as if you are on a plateau. On weekends, it is a popular place for families to relax. In spring, the park is filled with beautiful cherry blossoms and is famous as a cherry blossom viewing spot. Tsugaru City Spring Festival: Held in the Kizukuritateoka district. At the venue, “Hiratakinuma Park,” cherry trees have been planted since around 1975, and about 1,000 cherry trees bloom. 1000 cherry blossoms: People who enjoy cherry blossom viewing with about 1000 cherry blossoms such as “Cerasus × yedoensis (Matsum.) Masam. Et Suzuki’Somei-yoshino“, “double cherry-blossoms” and “weeping cherry tree” in spring. It is crowded with. Sakura at night: When the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, you can enjoy the cherry blossoms at night illuminated by the lights installed along the road that passes through Hiratakinuma Park. The land of “Kizukurikamegaoka”, a wooden structure, has a unique culture that blossomed in the late Jomon period, and many of the excavated items are known as fragrant works of art and are considered academically valuable. Tsugaru Kamegaoka Yaki Shikiroan（Kizukuritateoka Kamisawabe）has a kiln in this area and is named “Tsugaru Kamegaoka Ware”. It is characterized by engraving cinnabar glaze and Jomon patterns and firing it by firing. There are various items such as daily tableware, decorative jars, and handmade shading clay figurines.

More than 50% of the watermelons produced in Tsugaru City are cultivated in the Sea of Japan area centered on the Mt. Most of the shipping destinations are to the Tokai and Kinki regions, and the shipping time is mainly in August. Many varieties are cultivated in the striped king system, and the characteristics of this variety are the good growth of the flesh and the fine meat quality and excellent shelf life. The “Tsugaru City Melon Watermelon Festival” scheduled for August 3rd year of Reiwa will be canceled to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus infection. I’m sorry I was just looking forward to it. Himekansen is a flesh full of crispness that is comparable to large watermelons. The pericarp is dark green with thick stripes and clear. The second fruit is of the same quality as the first fruit. It is a gem of a small watermelon that is easy to eat because it has few seeds and is sweet to the skin. The vivid colors and refreshing sweetness delight children and the elderly, and are perfect for desserts after meals and hydration in midsummer. Moisten the sowing floor, sow the seeds and lightly sprinkle with soil. After germination, good seedlings are thinned out and planted at a distance of about 1.5 m. After planting, keep warm with a hot cap, etc., or spread straw as the vine grows. Pinch with 7 to 8 true leaves, and stretch and set about 3 cotyledons. Fertilizer should be mainly organic fertilizer such as oil cake and compost before planting, and chemical fertilizer after planting. As a guide, the fruit-bearing node should start from the 15th node. It is important to note that “Himekansen” is a watermelon that opens up a new era, with few seeds and easy to eat, sweet to the skin, one-selling size, thin skin and little kitchen waste. Watermelon, which has been leading the era since its debut, can be said to be a darling. “Tsugaru City” is located in the northwestern part of Aomori Prefecture, west of the central part of the Tsugaru Plain. It borders Nakadomari Town, Kitatsugaru District and Goshogawara City on the east side of the Iwaki River, faces the Sea of Japan on the west side, and its coastline is Shichirinagahama. It is called Kodomari, Nakadomari Town and Ichiura, Goshogawara City in the north, and Ajigasawa Town, Nishitsugaru District in the south, and a hilly area called Mt. Byobu continues along the coast. To the south, you can see Mt. Iwaki, the SHUHO of Tsugaru, and the Shirakami Mountains, a World Heritage Site. In the center, you can open up the vast Tsugaru Plain nurtured by the Iwaki River. A large breadbasket has been formed since the reclamation of Nitta by the famous Tsugaru clan. The area is 253.55 km2, which occupies about 2.6% of the prefecture area, and its land use is 56.0% for agricultural land, 4.5% for residential land, 13.7% for forests, and 25.8% for others. The climate is a typical Sea of Japan-type climate influenced by the Sea of Japan, and it is widely known as an area suitable for rice cultivation and summer-autumn vegetable cultivation because it is relatively cool in summer and the outbreak of pests is suppressed. In winter, there is a lot of snowfall due to the continuous strong winter-type pressure distribution, and traffic may be interrupted due to the blizzard caused by the strong westerly wind peculiar to the Sea of Japan, which affects the lives of residents. “Nishitsugaru District（鰺ヶ沢町, 深浦町）” has been the name of the county since it was divided into five counties: east, west, middle, south, and north with the enactment of the county, ward, town, and village organization law in 1878. A county mayor was assigned to the county, and a county office was set up as its office, giving it the function of a substantial administrative division. Immediately before the enforcement of the municipal system in 1889, 108 villages in 11 towns were counted, but after the enforcement of the system: Ajigasawa Village, Maito Village, Nakamura, Akaishi Village, Naruzawa Village, Wooden Village, Tateoka Village, Shussei Village, Koshimizu Village, Shibata Village, Kawase Village, Fukaura Village, Odose Village, Iwasaki Village, Morita Village, Kashiwa Village, Inagaki Village , Shariki Village, Mizumoto Village, 13 Villages established. With the promulgation of the county system in 1890, the county was stipulated as an intermediate administrative agency between prefectures and municipalities, and a parliament (county council) was established to give it the function of a local government. However, since the county as a municipality (county council and county autonomy) was abolished in 1923, and the county as an administrative agency (gun mayor and county council) was abolished in 1926, the county has become a mere geographical division. It has become. After that, due to the merger of cities, towns and villages in 1955, there were 8 towns and villages. In addition, out of the 5 towns and villages that form this area, 4 towns and villages (Morita village and Shariki village are transitional groups up to 2004) have been designated as depopulated areas, and the outflow and decrease of the population continues. There seems to be. Tsugaru City was born on February 11, 2005 by merging the former Kizukuri Town, the former Morita Village, the former Kashiwa Village, the former Inagaki Village, and the former Shariki Village, and is famous as the ninth city in Aomori Prefecture. The city makes history as a land that was once a barren wetland, and was cultivated by its predecessors with unremitting efforts to confront adverse conditions and various obstacles in order to cultivate new rice fields. The paddy field landscape with fresh greenery in early summer and the magnificent rural landscape with golden rice ears in autumn swaying in the wind are one of the pride of the national ward. The beautiful Mt. Byobu windbreak landscape is the result of more than 200 years of tree planting projects that our predecessors have continued to protect Nitta from the strong westerlies from the Sea of Japan and the dust flying from the large sand dunes. 七里長浜: As the name suggests, SHICHIRI Nagahama, which extends from Kawajiri in Ajigasawa to near Lake Jusanko, is a long sandy beach that is over 28 km (about 7 里). Since it is a sandy beach where no one lives, it is a place with a high degree of naturalness (Sakurai, Shishin). On the inland side of the windbreak, there are countless large and small swamps such as Lake Tappi. Brackish water bentos such as Corbicula japonica inhabit the estuary of Lake Jusanko and the Iwaki River. The beautiful Mt. Byobu windbreak landscape is the result of more than 200 years of tree planting projects that our predecessors have continued to protect Nitta from the strong westerlies from the Sea of Japan and the dust flying from the large sand dunes.

The world’s largest buried forest about 28,000 years ago, Japan’s oldest apple tree, and estimated to be about 1,000 years old: There are Fraxinus mandshurica var. Japonica（一本タモ: An estimated 1000-year-old Manchurian Ash. The hump on the trunk is said to look like a woman’s breast, and has been worshiped locally as a “milking god” for some time.）, which is said to be the largest in Japan. International exchange is also active, and it has become a sister city after rescuing the crew of the “Cheseborough（A sailor was dying on the beach, but there was an episode that a woman in the village warmed her skin.）”, a sailing ship in Bus City, Maine, USA, which ran aground in the Sea of Japan (off Shariki) in 1889. At the annual Chessborough Cup Swimming Ekiden Tournament, players from the bus city as well as the whole country participate, and it is said that it is a big event that can be said to be a world tournament. Benche wetlands : One of the representative marshes of Tsugaru National Park, which has an altitude of about 20 m and an area of about 23 ha.

This marshland, where various flowers are in full bloom, was designated as one of Japan’s 100 Best Nature in 1983. In the city, efforts to contribute to the sound development of agriculture, forestry and fisheries promoted along with the development of renewable energy power generation facilities: From two large-scale wind power generation companies in the city (Green Power Tsugaru LLC., Mahoroba Wind Power Generation Co., Ltd.), a part of the revenue from the sale of electricity from the wind power generation business will be used as funds for regional promotion measures in the agriculture, forestry and fisheries industry. Received the intended donation. In April 2020, the Tsugaru City Agricultural, Mountain and Fishing Village Revitalization Project Fund Ordinance was enacted and the fund started operation in order to use the donations to finance the expenses used for regional promotion projects in the agriculture, forestry and fisheries industry.

Full-scale watermelon cultivation in the Mt. Byobuyama area seems to date back to the mid-1952s. It seems that the climate peculiar to the region has a large daily difference in temperature and the well-drained land has significantly increased the sugar content of watermelon, and its high quality has been evaluated nationwide. I heard that there are cultivation forms that match the shipping time, such as free-range cultivation, rain shelter cultivation, and mobile cultivation.
Himekansen is a small ball watermelon sold by Marutane Co., Ltd. (Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture). It tends to have stable quality, sugar content, and crispness. Since there are relatively few seeds, it is easy to eat even for young children. Also, a small ball watermelon with a long shelf life The pericarp is about 3 mm, but it is hard and firm, so it seems that there are few cracks during cultivation. Also, it seems that fruit cracking during transportation is unlikely to occur. The epidermis is dark green and the thick stripes are clear. The flesh has a bright red color and there are few seeds. It consumes a lot because it can be eaten up to the skin.
Approximately 60 people, including farmers around the city, participated in the demonstration held on June 2, 2022 at the seed production association field in Tsugaru City’s Dekishima. Among them, the tractor automatically traveled by measuring the position using an artificial satellite, and the work of sowing seeds without a person riding was demonstrated, and the participants touched on the technology that leads to labor saving of the work. It seems. Smart agriculture is a new type of agriculture that uses robot technology and ICT to promote labor saving, precision, and high-quality production. At Japanese agricultural sites, there are still many tasks that rely on manpower and can only be done by skilled workers, and it is clear that labor saving, securing manpower, and reducing the burden are important issues. Therefore, by utilizing “smart agriculture” that makes full use of “advanced technology” in Japanese agricultural technology, it is possible to further promote labor saving and labor reduction in agricultural work, secure new farmers, and improve cultivation technology. Expected to be inherited. As an example of the effect of smart agriculture, It is possible to expand the scale in a wide range by automating work with advanced technology such as a water management system for paddy fields operated by robot tractors and smartphones. In addition, it is possible to pass on the agricultural techniques of skilled farmers’ craftsmanship to young farmers using ICT technology. By utilizing and analyzing sensing data, etc., it is possible to accurately predict the growth and diseases of crops and perform advanced agricultural management.
