OTAKE Old man was born in Kamiiso Town, Kamiiso District, Oshima, Hokkaido（current Hokuto City）, as the fourth son of Toshizo Matsuda, a feudal lord of the Aizu domain. He was later adopted by the Otake family. He graduated from the Imperial College of Engineering in 1883. In 1885, he was sent to Europe by the Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce to study the velvet business, and visited factories in Ikiris, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, etc. He became a professor at Tohoku Imperial University in 1910 after working as the director of Senju Seisakusho, Ministry of the Army. Later, he served as Yonezawa Higher Technical High School, Principal of Kiryu Higher Dyeing and Weaving School, and Director of Patent Bureau. His gentle statue is located in the former Yonezawa High School of Technology, Yonezawa City, Yamagata Prefecture. Toyotaro YUKI was born in Akayu, Nanyo City, Yamagata Prefecture in 1877. After graduating from the University of Tokyo, he was Minister of Finance in 1937 and then President of the Bank of Japan in 1944. According to my mother’s alma mater, Yonezawa Commercial High School, in August 2021, when I was organizing the exhibition room of the school, I heard that two books that Yuki seemed to have written with a brush were discovered. One of these was written 90 years ago in 1932 when Yone gave a lecture to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the founding of Yonezawa Commercial High School, which means “to rule the country and save the people.” It seems that it is written as “Yonezawa Commercial High School”. Neither of the two books is in the Toyotaro Yuki Memorial Hall in Nanyo City, and investigations at the memorial hall have revealed that they belong to the person himself. On June 13, the director of the memorial hall visited a high school to check the real thing. It seems that the Toyotaro Yuki Memorial Hall will hold special exhibitions and open to the public in the future. Toyotarou Shonen was born as the eldest son of the Yuki family in the Akayu brewing industry. His innate talent and talent, he has grown up to be loved by his neighbors. In elementary school, he becomes the center of children’s daily activities, and after graduating, he goes on to the long-awaited former Yamagata Junior High School, the former two schools (Sendai), and then to Tokyo Imperial University. All of them have excellent grades and go on to non-examination, and while they are still in school, they lead classmates as scholarship students. The Sino-Japanese War broke out when Toyotarou was in the third or fourth year of junior high school, and the Russo-Japanese War broke out in the year he joined the Bank of Japan. It seems that it was the main era. Later, due to the post-war recession and the financial crisis in the early Showa period, people’s lives were poor, and the times were disturbed by the Manchurian Incident, the May 15 Incident, and the February 26 Incident, forcing a wartime controlled economy. , Finally, we will be on an unfortunate path. In February 1937, Governor of Kogin Yuki was appointed Minister of Finance after forming the Cabinet of Senjuro Hayashi, and returned home to visit the grave in late May. It seems that the minister at that time was the first to enter the country, so it was a big rush in the town. He planned various grand celebration events, and the mayor who came to Tokyo to contact him said, “I will not make such a fuss just because I became a minister. Please stop the event at all.” It seems that it was canceled. On the day of the event, most of the people in the neighborhood were greeted in front of the station to see the minister, but the teacher was dressed in normal clothes and got off at the station by himself. It seems that the cars that were greeted by the prefectural governor at the beginning of the prefectural governor were empty and had a series of unusual lines because they went a long way while being bowed to the people who picked them up. In this way, he was very warmly treated by the hearts of the common people, and seemed to be loved by the local people as his father. Let’s learn ourselves and create our own splendid “hometown”. Only when each “hometown” becomes splendid will the whole country be well controlled and a peaceful world will be created. From such a desire, it was Toyotarou old man who first thought of “hometown” as a book and made an effort for its fulfillment and development throughout his life. Yonezawa City, Located at the southernmost tip of Yamagata prefecture. It is located in the Yonezawa basin at the foot of the Azuma mountain range, which is the source of the mother river “Mogami River”, and borders Fukushima Prefecture.

Due to the influence of the manga ‘Hana no Keiji’ featuring him, he is quite often called Keiji MAEDA. It is said that he was from the Takigawa clan (ninja family), but he was adopted by Arako castle owner, Toshihisa Maeda. Kabuki-mono: Especially in the European and American block, the culture of ‘Japan’ as imagined by foreign people was likely to be exaggerated in some part or being mixed with China and being stereotyped, due to curiosity (exoticism) about a culture of which the ancestry was completely different from that of Christian culture, and many ‘perception biases’ from the Japanese viewpoint were seen (even now, there are many foreign travelers who are surprised to know that Japan has no ‘ninja’ (professional spy in feudal Japan highly trained in stealth and secrecy)). After the Western Army lost the battle and the territory of the Uesugi Clan was reduced to 300,000 koku and relocated to the Domain of Yonezawa, Toshimasu served the Domain of Yonezawa and retired to Domori near Yonezawa (currently known as Keijisimizu in Domori, Bansei Town, Yonezawa City).

Ikeda）”, “Tsutsuji（Rhododendron L., azalea）”, “Ayame（Iris sanguinea Hornem., 1813）”, and “Hagi（Bush clover, Japanese clover）”, which are nationally designated natural monuments（”Two-stage designation of monuments,” is a system in which, in respect of historic sites, places of scenic beauty and natural monuments defined as “monuments” by the Act on Protection of Cultural Properties, monuments selected as ‘especially important’ among those designated by the national government are classified into the categories prefixed with ‘Special’ to call them “Special Historic Site,” “Special Place of Scenic Beauty” or “Special Natural Monument,” respectively.）that bloom in rich soil, color the four seasons. About 300 years ago, it prospered as a commercial city by the Mogami River transport of the Uesugi Yonezawa clan. Nagai’s culture and industry have blossomed greatly, supported by the rich wealth of the large merchants that have been accumulated. Waterways still run like a net in the city, and they are used as water for daily life, but I miss them when I remember the past. Utilizing the waterway, a regulated waterway will be provided and supplied to small and medium-sized rivers as water for snow removal, which will be used for snow removal during the winter. Underground water from the clear stream Oktamanogawa River was taken and supplied as drinking water, and was healed many times as a child.

I connected my hands and went to the farm, and even though I couldn’t do it, I said that I would help, and I took care of it. Due to the peculiarity of the basin, the season is clear, the summer is hot, and the winter tends to be extremely cold. Especially in the winter, a large amount of snow falls due to the seasonal wind from the continent. The large temperature difference between day and night has a positive effect on the growth of agricultural products. That’s why it’s delicious. Takahata Castle (Takahata Town, Higashi-Okitama County, Yamagata Prefecture): It is also called Kanega Castle because its shape resembles a bell. It is said that there was Honmaru in the current Takahata school ground and Otemon near Showa nursery school.

That’s Komatsu Town, Otsuka, Inukawa, Chugun, Tamaniwa, Yoshijima Village. Since it is located on the west side of the Mogami River, it was named by Kawanishi Town and its pioneers. During his stay in Komatsu, Isabella Lucy Bird praised the Yonezawa Plain as the Garden of Eden and the Arcadia of Asia. This is probably because the terrain is roughly divided into vast countryside and gentle hills, and is blessed with abundant nature. Japan’s largest scale “kawanishi dahlira garden” is a 4 hectare garden with 650 species and 100,000 dahlia x hortensis guillaumin dahlia x pinnata cav（Native to Mexico）. Utilizing the abundant nature, it is known as the “rice center” next to the Shonai plain in the prefecture. It has a history and local sake produced from good quality rice and clean water.

It is widely known as the “classical cherry blossom village” because there are many old trees of Edohigan tree（Prunus pendula Maxim. var. ascendens Makino; Cerasus spachiana Lav. ex Otto f. ascendens (Makino) H. Ohba）that are over 500 years old. Along the Mogami River: The rich countryside spreads, and raw milk is produced mainly by rice cultivation, apples, tomatoes, and dairy farming. It is also famous as one of the leading production areas of Akebia introduced earlier. Atagoyama (Shirataka Town）: Altitude 348 m. “Iide Town”, It’s located in the southwest, but I’d love to visit it once. To the east are Yonezawa City and Kawanishi Town. Adjacent to Oguni Town in the west, Kitakata City in Fukushima Prefecture in the south, and Nagai City in the north. The northeastern part is known nationwide for producing good quality rice in agricultural areas using Shirakawa natural water and fertile cultivated land.

The town is surrounded by magnificent mountains such as the Asahi mountain range and the Iide mountain range, which belong to the bandai asahi national park. Deciduous broad-leaved forests spread out to cover the entire town, including the beech forest that leaves a primitive landscape, soothing us.

It is said that the amount of snow does not fall below 2 m even in the center of the town, and in some mountain villages it reaches up to 5 m. It is one of the most heavy snowfall areas in Japan, and the heavy snowfall of 1963 turned the town into an “isolated island on land.”However, a lot of rain and snow store abundant water（The corporation that paid attention to the feat of constructing a hydroelectric power plant and using the electric power to start manufacturing alloy iron such as ferrosilicon in 1938.）in the land and nurture the lives of many animals and plants that inhabit it, including forests.

It is characterized by its larger pods and fruits than dadacha beans（Green soybeans, a native vegetable born in the suburbs of Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture. It is a special product that can only be cultivated in Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture.）, and its aroma and rich sweetness attract fans. The secret taste also seems to be popular as mature soybeans. It seems that demand is increasing year by year, as it is made into soybeans at home, secret tofu, and secret miso are also made. Freshness is the life, but I recommend boiling it as soon as possible when you get it. First, put 3 times as much water and a small amount of salt in a pan and bring to a boil. During this time, wash the beans in a tub, rub them with a little water to wash away the downy hair, and drain with a colander. When the water boils, put the beans in a pot, cover and cover for about 3-4 minutes. Raise it in a colander, sprinkle it with salt, and heat it with a uchiwa to finish it.
Speaking of green beans, they are known as delicious beans that are said to be “secret”. This bean is a white-eyed green bean, selected from the native species of Tohoku and registered as a variety. This all-purpose variety is rare. However, such excellent beans also have a major drawback: the harvest time for green soybeans is mid-September, and the delicious time of beer is missed. It is the largest variety among them and has a satisfying taste. It is not a cultivar that is registered as a trademark or difficult to obtain seeds like Dadacha beans, so it is a popular product at direct sales offices all over the country. JA in the Oki region is particularly focusing on this edamame, and in 2004 the shipment amount exceeded 100 million yen, and recently it seems that it has become available at supermarkets in the Kanto region as well. The secret beans are harvested later than the general green soybeans, and can only be harvested for a moment, so they are said to be phantom beans. It is said that it was named “secret” in the sense that everyone in the know knows it. Actually, it is difficult to cultivate, the production is not large, and the harvest is about one week.
