Nakano City Agricultural Committee “Guidelines for Promoting Optimal Use of Farmland, etc.” September 2016, Nakano City Agricultural Committee, 1st, basic idea: The revised Act on Agricultural Committees, etc. (Law No. 88 of 1951) came into effect on April 1, 2016, and the most important task for agricultural committees is to promote the optimization of agricultural land use. It seems that it was clearly positioned as an essential office work. The topography of Nakano City is a mixture of flat land and hilly and mountainous land, and the use of farmland and farming patterns differ depending on the region seems to be required. Especially in hilly and mountainous areas, there are many areas centered on fruit trees, and there is concern about the occurrence of idle farmland. In terms of consolidation, the necessity of working while utilizing the farmland intermediate management business is being questioned. From the above perspectives, in order to build a vibrant agriculture and farming village while making the most of the strengths of the region, based on Article 7, paragraph 1 of the law, the agriculture committee and the farmland use optimization promotion committee will work together to As a guideline for the Nakano City Agriculture Committee, the specific goals and promotion methods have been set as follows so that the “optimization of the use of farmland, etc.” can be integrated through the activities. This guideline is based on the Plan for Vitalizing Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and Local Communities (decided by the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and Regional Vitality Creation Headquarters on December 10, 2015). Establishment of an agricultural structure that accounts for 80% of
The majorie’s seedling plum was discovered in 1912 by G. W. Rayleigh at Hillfoot Farm in Venham, Berkshire, England. It appears to have been introduced in 1928. In 1937 Captain C.H. Sykes acquired the rights and in 1943 it appears to have been distributed by his Nursery at Burleigh Dam in Oaken, Staffordshire. In 1993, it received the Garden Merit Award from the Royal Horticultural Society. Seedlings of this excellent produce are a reliable and vigorous variety with an upright character. From the end of September to October every year, fresh blue fruits can be harvested. It is self-pollinated and apparently needs to escape spring frosts. Good quality, large purple fruit with brown spots and covered with thick blue flowers. It has a strong dual purpose: it’s delicious eaten straight from the tree, or baked into cakes, crumbles, and jams. The flesh is yellow and juicy. Not as sweet as other plums, but seems to get sweeter with age when sitting on the tree. Known as an excellent crop grown on a large commercial scale all over the UK. However, it seems that the yield may increase if there are compatible trees of different varieties nearby. It blooms in the middle of the flowering season and is apparently capable of cross-pollination with most other plum trees. Unless trained, trees grow to 2-4 m (8-13 ft) tall and seem to have bushy habits. This excellent produce tree seems to have several seasons. Clouds of pearly white flowers appear in early spring, followed by deep-hued fruit, and finally purplish-bronze foliage in fall. Marjorie’s Seedling is Okute’s European plum. Harvested after Victoria plums, they seem to round out the season for British plums, which are usually sold in supermarkets. Enoki mushrooms, kyoho grapes, apples, plums, asparagus, the farmers of Nakano, Shinshu, who took on the challenge of producing crops that no one had ever worked on, and developed them into high-value-added products faster than anywhere else, supported Japanese agriculture. A strong pioneering spirit and advanced technology have made Shinshu Nakano a top-class agricultural city. Greenhouse cultivation seems to dramatically increase the added value of agricultural products. This wisdom has created an annual agricultural production value of over 20 billion yen, even though the city is by no means a large one. Subsidy for new farmers support project (training type) as Nakano city subsidy system. 480,000 yen per year is granted for up to two years for those who have not yet started farming or temporarily quit farming and train at advanced farmers, agricultural research institutes, etc. New farmer support business subsidy (farming type) is for those who are planning to succeed farming or their spouses, if they conclude a family management agreement after farming and participate in farm management, up to 3 years, 600,000 per year Yen (300,000 yen for spouse). Farmland Efficient Use Encouragement Subsidy is for those who have been granted the right to use agricultural land for 3 years or more for the purpose of cultivation within the agricultural land area and whose management area after setting is 70 a or more (with conditions) for 3 years or more and less than 6 years per 10 a 5,000 yen, 10,000 yen for 6 years or more. (However, the amount of the subsidy seems to be doubled for certified farmers. It seems to be 1/2 for the current land category of rice fields.) , subsidies are issued to individuals or groups that reuse them. 3 years limit for the same farmland. It seems that it is 36,000 yen per 10 a in the first year, and up to 18,000 yen in the second and third years. 2022 “Zenkoji Temple Omaedachi Principal Image Gokaicho (Zenkoji Gokaicho Service Association: Nanasenaka Town, Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture, Nagano Chamber of Commerce and Industry)” : Scheduled period: April 3rd (Sun) -June 29th (Wed), March 27th (Sun), 2022 Memorial service pillar Acceptance ceremony, April 2nd (Sat) Omaedachi principal image honorable transfer of an object of worship expression, April 3 (Sun) Beginnings grand memory service, April 23 (Sat) Medium-Day Teigi (prayers wind through the temple for pray) Grand memory service (Pure Land sect (of Buddhism)), 5 Monday 7th (Sat) Medium-Day Teigi (prayers wind through the temple for pray) Grand memory service (Tendai sect (of Buddhism)), June 12th (Sun) Nagano Gion Festival Cart Parade, June 29 Sunday (Wednesday) Expiration of term of a vow grand memory service, June 30 (Thursday) Omaedachi principal image honourable transfer of an object of worship ceremony.

A grand ceremony for people from all over Japan to visit the Honorable alteration. Nagano Prefecture’s agriculture boasts a high first-class rice ratio with the highest yield of rice in Japan due to the advanced technology and diligence of farmers, and the core garden crops are lettuce, apples, etc. A variety of high-quality items are produced in a well-balanced manner, including items with the highest market share in Japan such as “grapes”, carnations, and Enoki mushroom. The Nagano Prefectural Agricultural Experiment Station is said to be conducting experimental research to solve problems in agriculture and fisheries, centered on six experimental sites（Agricultural Experiment Station（Ogawara, Suzaka）, Fruit Tree Experiment Station（Ogawara, Suzaka）, Vegetable Flower Experiment Station（Soga, Shiojiri）, Livestock Experiment Station（Kataoka, Shiojiri）, Nanshin Agricultural Experiment Station（Shimoichida, Takamori, Shimoina）, Fishery Experiment Station（Akashinanakagawate, Azumino）.）in the prefecture. The maturity period seems to be early September in Suzaka City, Nagano Prefecture. It is said that gibberellin treatment of flower (fruit) bunches is indispensable for cultivating commercial fruits. The color of the pericarp is purple-black with a lot of powder, the grains are obovate, about 13 to 15 g, the peel of the pericarp is difficult, the flesh characteristics are disintegrating, the flesh is slightly hard, crisp, and has a foxy scent. You can eat the whole skin. The sugar content is 18 to 21%, and the acid content is about 0.4 to 0.5%. Since fruit cracking may occur due to rainfall before the harvest season, it seems that facility cultivation is a prerequisite.

This variety was cultivated by crossing “Kyoho Grape（It was originally a grape named “Ishihara Centennial: (European grape Vitis vinifera × American grape Vitis labrusca)”. In 1953, an application for registration was made under the name of the Agricultural Seedling Law, and in 1954, an application for registration at the Japan Patent Office was made. The following year, in 1955, I heard that Mr. Yasushi Oinoue of the Oinoue Institute of Science and Agriculture (Kamishiraiwa, Izu City, Shizuoka Prefecture: Mr. Yasushi Oinoue Academic Literature Museum) was registered as a trademark.）” with “Rezamart Grape （Uzbekistan’ (former Soviet Unions rainless desert-born grapes. (Katta Kourgan Grape) × (Parkent Grape) ≒ MTC (European species) It changes from rosy to bright red and later to purple-red. I hear that it is easy to color. However, the shelf life is a little weak for a European species. The difficulty is that the skin is thin and the fruit is easily split, resulting in excellent fertility. The fruit is good, the parthenocarpy has few grains, and the fruit stalk is long.）”, and matured in early September in the medium-sized cultivar (Suzaka City, Nagano Prefecture) with purple-black skin color and circular fruit grains.

Compared to “Kyoho Grape” and “Pione Grape（It has a stronger aroma and a longer shelf life than Kyoho GRAPE. It has a strong sweetness and a refreshing acidity, and contains abundant fruit juice from large grains. It is cultivated with gibberellin treatment, so there are few seeds. In 1957, Mr. Hideo Ikawa (1896-1986 of Kawanishi Village, Shizuoka Prefecture (currently Izunokuni City), Kyoho Grape × Kanon Hall Muscat Grape (Muscat of Alexandria) I heard that it is a tetraploid bud variation of.）”, it is said that the distinction is recognized by the fact that the shape of the berries is circular and the berries are small. “Nakano City, Nagano Prefecture” is adjacent to Iiyama City and Kijimadaira Village in the north, Yamanouchi Town in the east, Nagano City, Obuse Town, Takayama Village in the south, and Iizuna Town in the west. In addition, it is said that villages are developing on river terraces, alluvial fans, and gentle slopes formed by the Chikuma River and Yomase River against the backdrop of symbolic mountains such as Mt. Madarao and Mt. Kosha. The area is about 11 km east-west and 16 km north-south, with a total area of 112.18 km2. The temperature varies greatly from year to year, with an inland climate of 30 ° C or higher in summer and -10 ° C or lower in winter. The new “Nakano City”, which was created by the merger of Nakano City and Toyota Village on April 1, 2005, is located in the northeastern part of Nagano Prefecture. Two iconic mountains, Mt. Kosha (1351.5 m) to the northeast and Mt. Madarao (1381.8 m) to the northwest, are located across the Chikuma River, which runs through the center of the city. Villages are formed on the river terraces created by the Chikuma River and the alluvial fan formed by the Yomase River, and the urban area extends over the Nakano alluvial fan. Mt. Kosha is a beautiful mountain that rises independently, and is known as “Takayashiro”, and has been the object of worship since ancient times. At the foot of the river, the Yomase River forms a “Jusan cliff（It is a natural monument with the name of a historic site that has been designated by the national government as the “13 cliffs of Chogenbo breeding ground” (designated on November 14, 1953). It is a cliff formed by the Yomase River, which is a tributary of the Chikuma River, eroding the alluvial fan where the volcanic rocks of Mt. Kosha were carried and deposited by rivers and landslides. It seems that the Yomase River used to flow on the southwest side of Nakano City, but it is said that the flow moved to the north side due to the flood in 1406, and it became a position close to the present. The vertical cliff surface is maintained because the cliff surface was repeatedly eroded by the Yomase River. I heard that the cliff extends from northwest to southeast for about 1,500 m and maintains a height of 30 m or more in the central part. Rookery has been recorded in Spain, Germany, Japan, Norway, Russia, etc., but I heard that Japan has the most records. Rookery takes place in cliffs and holes in buildings, but the number of nests varies from two to 28. In Japan, cliff rookery has been discovered in Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures since around 1950. However, it seems that the number of pairs has decreased in these rookeries, and there are many rookeries that have disappeared. Among them, the breeding ground was designated as a national natural monument in 1953, and is famous as a rookery on a rare cliff in the world, which continues to breed even now.）” and flows north, pouring into the Chikuma River. To the south of the Nakano alluvial fan is the lowland off Entoku, which is further connected to Zenkojidaira in the southwest. In addition, Mt. Madarao consists of five ridges that look like spread palms, with four valleys and many swamps between them, and the terrain is rugged and complex. It joins the Madarao River and pours into the Chikuma River. To the east, Joshinetsu Kogen National Park Shiga Kogen is desired, and to the west, it is said that it is blessed with a scenic view of Hokushin Gogaku（Nasu Godake-Mt. Chausu, Mt. Asahi, Mt. Sanbonyaridake, Mt. Minamigassan, Mt. Kurooya. Echizen Godake-Mt. Haku, Mt. Hino, Mt. Monju, Mt. Ochi, Mt. Yoshinogadake. “Hokushin Gogaku-Mt. Iizuna, Mt. Togaku, Mt. Kurohime, Mt. Myoko, Mt. Madarao.” Mt. Aso-Mt. Neko, Mt. Takaoka, Mt. Nakadake, Mt. Eboshi, Mt. Kishima.）. Nakano City certified agricultural production corporation, “Miku Nosan Co., Ltd（MIKUNOUSAN CORPORATION: Koshi, Nakano）”. is a pioneer in the future agriculture of the region. While receiving guidance from the local agricultural administration to eliminate devastated agricultural land, we are supporting Japanese food culture and agriculture by utilizing idle farmland together with local farmers. The farm is located in an area consisting of alluvial fans and river terraces with well-drained soil, and produces delicious fragrant fruits. Shinshu-Nakano Fruits Nationwide: We produce nectarines, prunes, persimmons, kiwifruits, as well as delicious popular grapes grown in unique terrain and temperature differences between day and night. The first persimmon studio (first in the Kita Shinshu area): When the seasons move to colder seasons. Dried persimmons are fertilized, pruned, and fruit-picked in order to produce higher quality dried persimmon ingredients. It is a gem that is thoroughly cultivated and managed, sticking to traditional methods and carefully finished by 100% natural drying. The company was established in August 2008 and started by planting fruit tree saplings on the idle farmland of 50 a. At first, it was a business that was started by a completely amateur group, so it seems that there was a big difference between desk calculations and detailed planning and reality. He just planted saplings and had no income. It seems that he had a series of hardships such as raising funds, securing a labor force, developing human resources, and acquiring cultivation techniques. That is why it seems that the joy was great when the seedlings planted for the first time passed the winter safely and when the grapes were harvested for the first time. Currently, the planted area of this farm utilizing idle farmland is about 20 ha, and grapes, nectarines, prunes, persimmons, etc. are cultivated. In addition, as the production volume increases, the brand name “Miku no Kagayaki”, which Miku Nosan owns the trademark right, has been established to differentiate it and devise sales methods.
The business policy of ‘Miku Nosan’ seems to be to “cherish each tree”. It is important to carefully manage the seedlings planted with great effort so that they do not wither and bear delicious fruits. In addition, with the desire to contribute to the community from various angles, through Hello Work, a person with a disability It seems that they are trying to hire people who have no farming experience, including those who are defined as “those who are subject to considerable restrictions”. “I want to work hard together with the local people” and “I don’t want to destroy the local farmland” seem to be the basic philosophy.
Nakano City is located at the foot of Shiga Kogen where the Winter Olympics were held in Nagano City, Nagano Prefecture, Japan from February 7 to February 22, 1998, making it a good location for enjoying skiing and snowboarding. Popular. Taking advantage of this rich natural environment, the natural conditions are perfect for cultivating a wide variety of horticultural items such as fruit trees such as grapes, apples, peaches, and cherries, vegetables such as asparagus and cucumbers, and flowers such as peonies and lisianthus. This seems to be one of the major characteristics of agriculture in Nakano City. In addition, the large temperature difference between day and night and relatively little rainfall throughout the year seem to make it possible to cultivate high-quality and delicious agricultural products.
At Miku Nosan, under the guidance of the local agricultural administration, they are renting farmland in the surrounding area and cultivating fruit trees, mainly Shine Muscat grapes, in an effort to stop the evolution of idle farmland. In August 2008, he established Miku Agricultural Co., Ltd. with the desire to play a part in the future agriculture of Shinshu Nakano, and started by planting fruit tree saplings on 50 acres of idle farmland. Also, despite overcoming a series of hardships, the project was started by a group of completely amateurs, so it seems that there was a big difference between desk calculations and meticulous plans and reality. There was no income from just planting saplings, and it seems that it was a series of hardships such as raising funds, securing a labor force, training human resources, and acquiring cultivation techniques. That’s why, when the seedlings he planted for the first time passed the winter safely, when he was able to harvest the grapes for the first time, he felt even more joyful. Currently, the planted area of this farm, which utilizes idle farmland, is about 20 ha, and I hear that it grows grapes, nectarines, prunes, and persimmons. In addition, in line with the increase in production volume, Mirai Nosan has established the brand name “Miku Kagayaki”, which has the trademark rights recommended by the Patent Office, and is devising a sales method to differentiate it.
