JR Tokai (headquartered in Konan, Minato Ward, Tokyo) seems to have held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Linear Chuo Shinkansen “Gifu Prefecture Station (tentative name)” to be built in Nakatsugawa City, Gifu Prefecture on June 11, 2022. It is one of the four new stations between Shinagawa and Nagoya, and it seems to be the first time to start full-scale construction of an above-ground station. It seems that it aims to complete the civil engineering work in March 2025. Gifu Prefecture Station will be located between Nagano Prefecture Station (tentative name), which is scheduled to be constructed in Iida City, Nagano Prefecture, and Nagoya Station. The groundbreaking ceremony was scheduled to be held in November 2021, but it was postponed in October of the same year after a collapse accident that killed and injured two workers at the construction site of the Seto Tunnel (Nakatsugawa City). The taste of mushrooms seems to be determined by the fungus itself rather than the production conditions. Currently, the producers are saying “NN-12 (complete renewal of the inoculum line from the inoculum distributed in February 2012. The plant may be slightly smaller than the conventional line, but the plant is well organized and has a uniform shape. Expected to improve the A-class rate. Registered varieties / No. 18337 Nagano Prefectural Agricultural and Industrial Research Institute Prohibition of overseas export (see public notice (Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries website)) / It is a shimeji mushroom that uses an inoculum called “(limited to JA in Nagano prefecture).” The color of the shimeji mushroom is black and the stem is thick. Speaking of which, it is crispy, deep and tasty. Furthermore, it has been improved so that even small children can eat it without any resistance. The top priority is to give consideration to consumers, and it is easy to make and produce a lot. It seems that it is not the perspective of the creator or seller who gives top priority to making. Today’s Nagano prefecture’s Bunashimeji mushrooms industry regards the promotion of regional agriculture as a top priority, and its predecessors who have been working on the promotion of artificial cultivation without running to desire to act only in one’s self-interest. Seems to be thanks to. The “Iida Shimoina” area where JA Minami Shinshu is located is located in the southern part of Nagano Prefecture, and is located in 1 city, 3 towns and 10 villages (Iida City, Matsukawa Town, Takamori Town, Anan Town, Achi Village, Hiratani Village, Neba Village, Shimojo Village). It is composed of the administrations of Urugi Village, Tenryu Village, Taifu Village, Takagi Village, Toyooka Village, and Oshika Village. With an area of 192,919 ha and a cultivated area of 5,780 ha, the Tenryu River flows almost in the center of the area, and the terrain is formed by river terraces, and various agricultural products are produced at different altitudes. It was born in December 1997 by the merger of 6JA of “Shinshu Matsukawa, Shinshu Takamori, Tenryu Misato, Shinshu Iida, Achi Village, Shinshu Minami” in the Iida Shimoina area. Agricultural and livestock products that are particular about “safety, security, health, and high quality” such as “Ichida persimmon”, “Nansui pear（It is said to be the sweetest Japanese pear currently on the market. Born at the Nanshin Agricultural Experiment Station in Nagano Prefecture, located in Takamori Town, Shimoina District, Nagano Prefecture. A red pear, a variety created by crossing “Echigo Pear” and “Shinsui Pear”. The variety was registered in 1990, and this year marks the 31st year.）”, “Apple”, “Cucumber”, “Minami Shinshu beef / Shinshu pork” are highly evaluated nationwide is recieving. Among them, Ichida persimmon’s exports started about 15 years ago, mainly to Taiwan, and in 2016, 4% of the total shipment volume was exported. However, since the form is indirect export via the domestic market, it seems that it had a problem that it did not grasp the current situation of the overseas market. There was also a recognition that it was necessary to raise the name of Ichida persimmon in order to expand sales overseas. Against this background, it seems that it has decided to apply for the “JETRO” regional collective trademark overseas expansion support project, which was newly established in 2016, to consider overseas sales strategies and to build a brand. The following activities are remarkable. Iida City, Nagano Prefecture is located in the center of Japan, at the southernmost tip of Nagano Prefecture. It is blessed with a climate of the north-south limit of flora and fauna. Blessed with land transportation such as Tosan Road in the old days, Sanshu Highway and Enshu Highway since the early modern period, and water transportation of the Tenryu River, it prospered as a key point of east-west or north-south transportation, and achieved its own economic and cultural development. Folk cultures such as “Kagura and Japanese puppet theatre in which recited narrative and dialog is accompanied by a shamisen (forerunner of bunraku) are still alive in our daily lives. It has been developed by traditional industries such as silkworm cultivation and egg-dimple, but now it is used in high-tech industries such as precision machinery, electronics, and optics that have introduced advanced technology, as well as semi-fresh confectionery (water content is 10 to 30%), pickles, miso, and sake. The food industry, Ichida persimmon, apples, pears and other fruits-based agriculture are flourishing. Also known as “a town of apple trees and puppet theater”, along with tourist attractions such as Tenryu Isthmus, which is said to be a scenic spot in the world, down the Tenryu River, Motozenkoji Temple（In the tenth year of Empress Suiko, when Prince Yoshimitsu HONDA, a resident of Shinshu Omi no Sato (currently Zakoji Temple in Iida City), went up to the capital with the help of the provincial governor (under the ritsuryo system,any of a group of officials,esp. the director), at the Nanba moat. The origin of Motozenkoji Temple（Tendai sect）is that it was taken to the hometown of Amida Nyorai and enshrined. After that, when Amida Nyorai decided to transfer Amida Nyorai to Imoi no Sato (currently Nagano City) due to the announcement of Amida Nyorai, there was another announcement saying, Be sure to do this for 15 days in the middle of every month. I was left with a vow to “come back to the old village of Nagano and make a profit for sentient beings.” In the first place, the name of Zenkoji was named after Zenko; Yoshimitsu.）, and Shirabiso（Derived from Abies veitchii, a tree belonging to the genus Fir of the Pinaceae family, on a plateau at an altitude of 1918 m.）Kogen, in recent years, experience-based educational trips and Sakuramori’s trip around famous cherry blossoms and green tourism / ecotourism initiatives are also attracting attention from all over the country. Aiming to become an environmental and cultural city, we are working on various environmental issues throughout the region, including local businesses, citizens, and NPOs. Among them, Iida City was the first to realize an advanced solar power generation business model utilizing a citizen fund. By fusing the know-how of the central city area town development model such as the management of block renewal with the efforts so far, we have realized local production for local consumption of energy with the energy of Ohisama Tomori. The place name of “Iida” is derived from “Yui no rice pad”, and it is a land pattern related to “Knot” represented by “egg-dimple” which is a traditional industry. Sustainability that enables the realization of a prosperous lifestyle by demonstrating the “power of ties” among governments, companies, and citizens, promoting the creation of strategic communities in the 21st century with an eye on the linear era, and creating large swells in the human resources cycle. Aiming for possible regional management. Located almost in the center of Japan, it is the central city in the southernmost part of Nagano prefecture, the so-called Ina Valley. The area on both banks of the Ryukawa is about 659 km2. The Southern Alps rises to the east and the Central Alps rises to the west, and the mountain skirts are blessed with abundant nature, excellent landscapes, and a comfortable climate rich in seasonal changes. The city has long prospered as a cultural corridor connecting eastern and western Japan. People’s enterprising and academic temperament has built a distinctive culture by quickly incorporating new culture while leaving the old culture well. Early modern Confucian scholar Shundai Dazai, modern Japanese painting pioneer Shunso Hishida, biologist and breeder Yoshio Tanaka, symbolic poet Kounosuke Hinatsu, theater researcher Shigetoshi Kawatake, legal profession Rikisaburo Excellent cultural figures such as Imamura, Minato Ichimura of local history research, and Toshio Furushima of agricultural economic history were produced. The hometown of the foster family of Kunio YANAGIDA, the founder of Japanese folklore, is also here. In recent years, it is known as a town with rows of apple trees and Isthmus, a town where folk culture is alive, and is widely known as a town for puppet theater. From ancient times to modern times, the city has one of the largest amounts of historical materials in the country. Many archaeological sites of each period, including the Takesanakahara Paleolithic site excavated in the Yamamoto area, tell the story of how people’s lives continued, especially in the middle Jomon period, the late Yayoi period, and the late Kofun period. It seems that he showed an uplifting. In the Nara / Heian period, Ina District was set up at Zakoji, and Godo（Hachimangu: Located at the foot of Mt. Kazakoshi, about 800 m north of JR Iida Station. In front of the shrine is Imamiya Baseball Stadium. Behind it is a children’s forest park, which is a very green and scenic shrine.）-sho, Igara-sho, and Banno-sho were cultivated. In the Kamakura period, the existence of Chiku in the Banno Sho Chiku Township and the existence of the lord of a manor Asonuma in the Suburbs Sho Iida Township are known. It is said that Banzai, who belongs to the Ogasawara clan, has been in power since the Nanbokucho period and built Iida Castle during the Muromachi period. This area is said to be the origin of Iida. By the way, it is said that the place name “Iida” was born from the meaning of “Yui no rice pad”, that is, the field of joint labor, and it appeared in the literature during the Kamakura period. From the end of the Warring States period to the Azuchi-Momoyama period, Iida was at the mercy of the four major groups of Takeda, Oda, Toyotomi, and Tokugawa, and the lord seemed to change rapidly. Shingen Takeda, who captured Ina District in 1555, placed Nobutomo Akiyama in Iida Castle as a gundai, and in 1582 Nobunaga Oda gave all the counties to Hideyori Mouri, but after the change of Honnoji Temple, Yoriyasu (Raian) Shimojo (a vassal of Kai Takeda) entered the castle, and in 1587 Mr. Sadatoshi Suganuma, a subordinate of Ieyasu Tokugawa, moved from Chikudaira Castle to Iida Castle. In 1590, Hideyori Mouri, who was ordered by Hideyoshi, ruled 100,000 koku in Ina-gun again, and in 1593 after his death, his son-in-law Takatomo Kyogoku took over. In less than 10 years from Mori to Kyogoku, Iida Castle was renovated, the castle town of the temple was relocated, the transportation network such as transmission horses was improved, and 15 castle towns such as Chiku Town and Matsuo Town were newly developed. Was done. The grid-shaped street network seen in the current city of Iida is based on the one created at this time. It is speculated that this time when Hideyoshi unified the whole country was the beginning of the early modern period in Iida. After the Battle of Sekigahara, Hidemasa Ogasawara, who entered the castle at 50,000 Koku of rice in 1601, also moved to Matsumoto Castle in 12 years and became a temporary shogunate territory, but in 1617, Yasumoto Wakizaka had 55,000 Koku. It was transferred from Iyo Ozu. Around this time, Sakura Town 1-3 district of a town was developed along the Ina Highway, and it seems that the foundation of modern Iida Town as the center of Ina Valley’s politics, economy, and culture was almost completed. In 1672, Chikamasa Hori entered the castle from Shimotsuke Karasuyama in place of Wakizaka at 20,000 Koku of rice, and Hori ruled Iida for 196 years until the Meiji era. In addition to Hori, the Iida city area was occupied by the excursions of the Mino Takasu domain, the flagship territories of Ogasawara, Zakoji, Chiku, Inoue, Kondo, etc. Throughout the early modern period, agriculture and small industries such as raw silk, Japanese paper, paper cord for tying the hair, umbrellas, persimmons, and lacquer ware developed in Iida Town and many rural areas around it, and economic activities were actively carried out beyond the walls of the territory. It is said that Iida Town and the surrounding farm villages have been connected to the national market by a transportation industry called Nakama, and have achieved their own economic and cultural development based on the activities of farmers, craftsmen, and merchants. Under the new government of the Meiji era, Chikahiro Hori repatriated the clan’s register in 1869 and became Iida prefecture in 1872 due to the abolition of the clan, but that year it was merged with Chikuma prefecture and integrated into Nagano prefecture in 1877. As the location of the Shimoina District government office, the town gathered various government agencies and entered the modern era as the center of Ina Valley. During the Taisho era, raw silk flourished as an export industry and laid the foundation for the magnificent rural landscape of this region. The town system was established in 1899, and on April 1, 1937, it merged with Kamiiidacho and was newly established as Iida City. Since then, on September 30, 1956, it merged with the seven villages of Zakoji, Matsuo, Tatsuoka, Igara, Yamamoto, Miho, and Shimokuken. Merged with Kawaji Village on March 31, 1961, merged with Ryue, Chiyo, and Kamikuken on March 31, 1964, and merged with Kanae Town on December 1, 1984. It merged with Kamigo Town on July 1, 1993, and merged with Uemura and Minamishinano Village on October 1, 2005, becoming a city adjacent to Shizuoka City and Hamamatsu City. On the other hand, most of the urban area called Little Kyoto has disappeared due to the great fire in April 1947, but as symbolized by the “row of apple trees”, the orderly green streets based on the city plan are used as a model city for fire prevention. It has been reborn to be proud of all over the country, and cultural facilities such as school facilities and environmental hygiene facilities have been rapidly enhanced, and it is steadily developing as a modern cultural city. In addition, the puppet theater festival that started in 1979 became the largest in Japan with the support of the theater people and the citizens, and formed a friendship city tie-up with the city of Charlesville Meger in France, which is called the city of puppet theater. It became so. In 2010, Iida City, which was connected to the world, participated in the “Puppet Friends and Friendship Cities International Association” establishment meeting aiming to build an international solidarity and network to promote town development through puppet shows, and aimed at a small world city. We have taken a new step. Furthermore, as symbolized by the fact that the main body has moved from the administration to the citizens and continues and develops, it seems that it has come to attract attention as a town where citizens’ voluntary learning activities and community development activities are flourishing. In 1966, the 1st Garden City, then the 2nd “Garden City with abundant greenery and light”, and the 3rd A vibrant city of apple trees full of greenery and romance After going through the basic concept and basic plan with the ideal of “Iida, a city where people and nature are beautiful and shining-Environmental and Cultural City” Citizens and the government work together to formulate the 4th basic concept and basic plan. It is said that he has pioneered the creation of a town where people’s activities and nature are in harmony, and has refined the individuality of the region. The city, which was one of the first to focus on the environment, made the “Environmental Culture City Declaration” in 2007, and was certified as an “Environmental Model City” by the national government in January 2009. Then, we promoted the creation of a low-carbon and vibrant community, and took a new step from “environmentally friendly” to “prioritizing the environment”. For details, go to “Iida City”. In 1972, the then Kamigo Agricultural Cooperative and the current Takara Bio Inc. began artificial cultivation of Bunashimeji mushrooms for the first time in the world. JA Minami Shinshu is the “birthplace of Hypsizygus marmoreus cultivation”. Looking back on it as the birthplace of cultivation, it seems that cultivation, which started in a fumbling situation, had many difficulties and hardships. It is said that the medium is used as the basis for culturing mushrooms, and sawdust is mixed with rice bran and bran as nutritional supplements, and then bottled for cultivation. The stuffed medium is sterilized with steam under pressure in a sterilization pot, and cultivated at 118 degrees for about 6 hours without pesticides. He says he will put the mushroom fungus in a completely sterilized and ready bottle. It is a member of the fungus mold, which acts in the form of filamentous cells called hyphae, but when it matures, it produces spores (the seeds in plants) and propagates. These are cultivated in a dark room in an environment with a temperature of 20 degrees for about 30 days, and then aged for about 60 days. After the fungus scraping work to scrape the surface so that mushrooms can easily come out from the fungus bed, it is then carried to the growth room for sprouting and growth. The bottles are lined up in 6 tiers, with the upper 3 tiers sprouting and the lower 3 tiers growing. And for the first time, the light is shined. The growing room has an autumn climate with a temperature of 14 degrees Celsius and humidity of nearly 100%. The moment you open the door, a pure white mist will blow out. And it seems to be harvested in 22nd and 23rd. After this work, it is packed in the packaging room and shipped. It seems that one bottle is cultivated about three times a year. Each farmer adjusts and works so that it can be shipped daily according to demand. Let’s take a peek at this fact again and eat while tasting it. Because it directly leads to physical health. In recent years, we have also focused on improving the variety of Bunashimeji mushrooms. The JA Nagano Prefectural Group’s research and development institute, “Nagano Prefectural Rural Industrial Research Institute,” tests thousands of new varieties every year. Compared to the inoculum used around 1972, when artificial cultivation started, it has undergone a dramatic evolution.
From the viewpoint of ECO, when I thought about stopping the tray and putting it in a bag, I focused on the freshness-preserving film. Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. (The oldest “Bakelite” in a certain plastic is the name of phenol resin developed by Dr. Baekeland, a Belgian-American, in 1907. This plastic. In 1911, with the help of Dr. Jokichi TAKAMINE (1854-1922), who was a close friend of Dr. Baekeland, Sankyo Joint Stock Company (currently Daiichi Sankyo Co., Ltd.) received the exclusive license of the Japanese patent and made a prototype at the Shinagawa Plant. Was the pioneer of the Japanese plastic industry. It seems that the origin of the company name is also there. After that, the Bakelite division became independent from Sankyo Co., Ltd. in 1932, became Nippon Bakelite Co., Ltd., and in 1955, Sumitomo. Merged with Kakozai Kogyo Co., Ltd. to become Sumitomo Bakelite Co., Ltd. During this period, as a pioneer of plastics, we have been developing new technologies one after another with advanced expertise and the latest equipment, and it is safe in all fields. It seems that it contributes to the creation of a comfortable living environment.) Introducing P-Plus, and comparing the products of each company just in case. It seems that the difference was obvious. This is because only P-Plus can be customized, and the amount of air that permeates only for mushrooms can be adjusted. When I actually tried it, it seems that the difference in the degree of deterioration was clear. About 15 years have passed since the introduction of P-Plus. During that time, there were no quality problems due to packaging. It has become one of the most popular ingredients for Japanese people because it has become possible to ship Bunashimeji mushrooms with stable quality throughout the year, the cost due to loss has been cut, and the price has become affordable. Not to mention the dining table, it seems that it is now an indispensable part of the school lunch menu.
The birthplace of cultivation, Minami Shinshu, extends to the southern part of Nagano Prefecture. In addition, Iida Shimoina district is a general term for 1 city, 3 towns and 10 villages centered on Iida city. The Tenryu River runs through the center, surrounded by the two Alps from east to west, and is blessed with abundant nature, clean air and water, and is commonly called Minami Shinshu. Agricultural products with different heights are produced in each area with different elevations from about 400m to 1000m above sea level. It seems that a variety of attractive fruits and vegetables, including the specialty Ichida persimmon, are being actively cultivated. Above all, it has a long history as a mushroom producing area, and in 1972, the world’s first artificial cultivation of Bunashimeji mushrooms started. Bunashimeji much is known as the birthplace of cultivation. Currently, we are starting to cultivate rare varieties such as sparassis crispa, biling（雪姫茸）, and white beech mushrooms, as well as the mainstay bunashimeji mushrooms and enokitake mushrooms. Delicious mushrooms are delivered to consumers all over Japan on day in and day out.
