About Bull Sumo ; UWAJIMA’s Bullfighting – A fisherman from fukuura rescues a Dutch ship drifting in the uwa sea.It was around the second half of the 17th century. 礼 -It seems that it started when the two cows that were given happened to struggle. From the fact that farmers made strong Japanese beef cows for farming in the Kamakura period – It seems that they naturally butt the cow’s horns in the field and used this as entertainment. The origin began with the introduction of farming cattle. It is spontaneous due to the cattle’s struggle instinct. Palaeography of the feudal era :A full-scale bullfighting with a ring was held in the Kyowa era. A document addressed to a deputy officer by the county magistrate in 1856 : 近頃牛突合せ, 繁々相催し, 互いに勝負を争い候趣, 夫れが為に牛売り買い高値に相成り, その外, 時々米銭の費も少なからざる, これに相聞くが左様の事相長く候ては, 先々難渋いたし候. etc. It can be seen that the bullfighting that became a box office was enthusiastic about people. During the Meiji and Taisho eras, bans or regulations were repeated. The common people were extremely prosperous, and reached their peak from the Taisho era to the early Showa era. In addition to “Warei sumo wrestling ring”, it was at Yamagiwa and Hode.Install a simple bamboo fence – It was set up in each district. The New Year and summer Warei festivals are especially busy. The audience seats are full of spectators carrying lunch boxes and bottles. In 1948, the GHQ banned bullfighting for reasons such as animal welfare. Ehime and Oki, Echigo – Petitions were repeated by the people concerned, and resumed two years later. While the name bullfighting is beginning to take root – Agricultural mechanization and urbanization are progressing rapidly, and along with this, they are declining. The bullfighting tournament ended at the end of the Warei Arena in the spring of 1955. Uwajima Bullfighting Promotion Committee launched : In 1959, the momentum of the resurrection showed excitement. In addition, the tournament (entertainment) has resumed. Steering Council established in 1974. In March 1975, the city was the first to complete an all-weather dome-shaped bullring nationwide.
Yoshida Town, Uwajima City, Ehime Prefecture, is a region where citrus production is thriving. Sweet form of Chinese citron is characterized by less acidity and easier eating than summer oranges. It has a good aroma and sweetness with acidity, and it has a refreshing sweet and sour taste and chewy flesh. It is large in size and has a good texture, and is loved by many consumers. The skin is firm and thick, and the sac membrane (thin skin) is also thick and weighs about 300 to 400 g.
Tachima, Yoshida Town has a long history as the birthplace of Ehime mandarin oranges, and is a typical fruit tree area that has achieved remarkable development based on citrus cultivation in the terraced area. Tachima oranges were introduced in the late domain. In 1856, Kumakichi, a sapling dealer in Tawarazu Village (currently Akehama Town), brought Kishu-type Wenshu seedlings, purchased by Chiyokichi KAGA in Shiraiya, and planted 55 trees. Wealthy farmers such as Kagayama, Yakushiji, Moyama, and Akamatsu have started cultivation. In addition, Kanroku MISUMI brought back dozens of seedlings directly from Higashino, Kawabe-gun, Hyogo Prefecture, and planted them by Yasukb Akamatsu, Sokichi Tsuchiya, Kinpei Kagayama, Ginzo Shiba and others. Kagayama, Shokichi Yakushiji and others cleared the mountain and planted it in a good field. Mandarin orange cultivation began to be cultivated as part of agricultural management at the earliest around 1877-1886. After the restoration, the Meiji government implemented new measures such as approval of farmers’ land ownership and permission for self-made Tabata. Increased cash spending due to land tax reform, monetary reform and subsequent rural recession, and implementation of monopoly system will make it difficult for farmers to maintain a self-sufficient economy, and will inevitably be caught in the vortex of the commodity economy.
It seems that the central city area of Yoshida Town originates from the Jinya Town of Yoshida Sanmangoku. In 1657, the fifth son of Hidemune Date, the first feudal lord of Uwajima, was informed of 30,000 koku of rice out of 100,000 koku of rice, founded the Yoshida domain, and set up his residence in Yoshida. It is said that the formation of Jinya-cho was made by reclaiming a wetland with a cluster of phragmites in the lower reaches of the Kawachi River, and it is said that the place name of Yoshida is derived from it. It seems that the lord’s residence, Jinya, was in the northwestern part of the town. It seems that this place was a disaster area surrounded by the Kawachi River in the south and the Tachima River in the east, with Mt. Ishishiro, which was the residence of Mr. Doi during the Warring States period, in the north.
