“Midi tomato” is a general term for medium-sized tomatoes, which weighs between large and small tomatoes. Released by TAKII & CO., LTD. Around 1975. Small tomatoes: petit tomatoes have become widely known. However, although it was made in earnest in the early Showa era, it didn’t go into mass production.
TomTom Midi Tomato is called “Red Ore Tomato” (Kaneko Seeds: Head office location, Furuichi Town, Maebashi City). Fruit form that looks like it’s grown up. It is cultivated all year round, but it seems that it is not suitable for collecting bunches because the fruit cracks a little. Kakegawa City Historic Scenic Preservation and Improvement Plan: Located almost in the center of Japan, roughly halfway between Tokyo and Osaka. Located in the middle of Shizuoka City and Hamamatsu City, which are ordinance-designated cities in Shizuoka Prefecture, on the east side. It borders Kikugawa City, Shimada City and Omaezaki City, Fukuroi City and Mori Town to the west, and the Pacific Ocean to the south. It has an area of 265.69 km2, about 15 km from east to west and about 30 km from north to south. Topography, Geology, and Water Quality : In the northern part of the prefecture, there are mountains, including Mt. Hachiko, the southernmost part of the Southern Alps, and flat land opens to the south. In the central part, there is Mt. Ogasa with an altitude of 264 m, and the foot of the mountain is a hilly area with a complex Yato. In the south, the Enshunada coast stretches about 10 km from east to west. In addition, paddy fields, coastal sandy fields, and tea plantations spread out around the urban areas formed in the central and southern areas. There are many small rivers in Kakegawa City, and most of them are three river systems: the Ota River system, the Kiku River system, and the Benzaiten River system. Classified as aquatic. Rivers in the Kakegawa area such as the Haranoya River and Sagawa River join the Ota River, rivers in the Daito area such as the Ushibuchi River and Sazuka River join the Kiku River, and rivers in the Osuka area such as the Nishi Oya River and the Osuka Shinkawa join the Benzaiten River. , respectively pour into the Pacific Ocean. There were few high mountains in the background, the water retention capacity of the forest was low, and the river flow was poor. It seems to have come. Reservoir and Yada (hills) have been handed down through the efforts of our predecessors to manage landslides and flood control, and are not only places for agricultural production activities, but also places to preserve the original landscape of farming villages and provide habitats for a wide variety of animals and plants. It seems that it fulfills an important function such as It seems that in the city, what has been built up over a long period of time is called ‘Small reservoir yada culture’. The northern mountains are the Mikura Formation consisting of alternating layers of mudstone, sandstone, and mudstone. To the south, the Kurama Formation consisting of mudstone and tuffaceous mudstone, the Saigo Formation of mudstone, and the Kakegawa Group of alternating layers of mudstone continue. The southern part consists of the Ogasayama hills, which consist of the Ogasayama gravel layer, and the Soga group, which contains a lot of mud and fine sand. The annual average temperature for him is relatively warm at around 16°C, and although the amount of precipitation varies from year to year, the annual average seems to be 1,910 mm. Summer is hot and humid, with many hot and humid days. There is almost no snowfall in winter, but seasonal winds called “Karakaze of Enshu” often blow continuously, making it easier to feel colder than the actual temperature. In addition, the number of hours of sunshine throughout the year seems to be longer than the national average. Kakegawa City was born on April 1, 2005 through the merger of Kakegawa City, Daito Town, and Osuga Town. Has reached the present. In the area of the former Kakegawa City, 17 villages including Kakegawa Town were established in 1889 with the implementation of the town and village system. In 1925, Oike Village, in 1943 Nango Village, and in 1950 Kami Uchida Village were incorporated into Kakegawa Town. In the following year, Kakegawa Town, Nishi Yamaguchi Village, Awamoto Village, and Nishi Nango Village were abolished and Kakegawa Town was newly established City. The following year, Nisaka Village and Higashiyama Village were relocated to Kita Ogasa Village (Sakuragi Village, Wada Village) in 1957. Established in 1954 due to the merger of Okamura), incorporating Harada Village and Haraya Village. Furthermore, in 1960, Mikasa Village was incorporated. In the area of the former Daito Town, seven villages including Osaka Village were established in 1889 when the town and village system was implemented. In 1943, Sazuka Village merged with Iwaname Village, and in 1955 Hijikata village and Sazuka village merged to form Kito village, and the following year, Naka village merged with Joto village. On the other hand, in 1942, Mitsumata and Mitsuhama villages merged to form Mutsuhama Mutsumura, and in 1955, Osaka and Mutsuhama villages merged to form Osaka, and in 1956, Osaka and Chihama were abolished. In 1957, the former Nakamura Kaito Nakamura district merged with Joto village to form Ohama town. In 1973, Ohama Town and Joto Village merged to form Daito. A town is born. In the area of the former Osuka Town, Osuka Village, Obuchi Village, and Kasahara Village were born in 1889 with the implementation of the town and village system, and in 1914, Osuka Village was renamed Yokosuka Town with the implementation of the town organization. In 1956, Yokosuka Town, Obuchi Village, and Kasahara Village merged to form “Osuka Town.” Kazutoyo Yamanouchi developed the castle town of Kakegawa Castle, and during the Edo period, the Ota clan and others served as lords of the castle, continuing until the early Meiji period. Rivers such as the Sakagawa River, which flows from east to west, function as natural moats. It seems that the castle town (samurai town) was on the north side, and the post town (townsman town) was on the south side of Sakagawa. Inn is along the Tokaido. It seems that merchants gathered there, and craftsmen such as roof tile makers, navy blue makers, and grinders lived in the back street. During its long history, post towns have been rebuilt several times due to earthquakes and wartime fires. Furthermore, from the early 1965s, development of the central city area began. Land readjustment has been completed and infrastructure development has progressed, and historical buildings have been lost. In addition to the current topographical map, Shoho-Shiro picture map (a map of the castle town created by the shogunate at the request of various domains). Detailed military information such as the structures inside the castle, the height of the stone walls, the width and depth of the moat, etc. In addition to the drawings, it seems that the town division of the castle town, the position and shape of the mountain river are described in detail. Each domain submitted a drawing several years after receiving the order of the shogunate, and the shogunate published it in Momijiyama Bunko from early on. 131 pavilions are recorded in the catalog of books in the same library at the end of the Edo period, “Supplementary Book Catalog”. Designated as an important cultural property of the country in 1986). The old town name is based on the family treasure book (Meiji period to Showa period). As a means of transportation, Kakegawa City developed post towns such as Nissaka Inn and Kakegawa Inn, and castle towns centered on Kakegawa Castle and Yokosuka Castle, due to the development of east-west and north-south roads such as the Tokaido and Akiha Kaido (Salt Road). It seems that it was formed and developed as a center of transportation and culture. The Tokaido, the ancient and medieval. It was the main road for east-west traffic, and was the most important road of the Five Highways (Tokaido, Nakasendo, Koshu Highroad, Oshu Highroad, and Nikko Highroad) in the Edo period. Seems to have passed From the castle town of Yokosuka facing Enshu Nada, roads leading to Tokaido post stations, roads leading to Sagara facing Suruga Shunwan, and roads leading to Kaketsuka at the mouth of the Tenryu River were apparently opened. The trade roads used to be the Sankin Kotai roads, and they seem to have been called the Yokosuka Highway. In addition, there is the Kakegawa Expressway (Kawasaki Minato – Kakegawa) as a road that connects the Tokaido with Minato on the coast, and it is said that it was a transportation route of annual tax rice that supported the economy of the shogunate and the Kakegawa clan. A typical north-south road is the Akiha Highway leading to Mt. Akiha. Hibuse and martial arts are said to have a miraculous effect, and it seems to have attracted a wide range of faith from the daimyo to the common people. A torii gate and a place for Akiha Shrine are built near Oike Bridge, which was the starting point of the Akiha Highway from Kakegawa inn. Since this road continues to Shinshu, it is called Shinshu Highway. It is also good because it has been a road that transported salt since ancient times. It seems that it is also called the road of. Taking advantage of the mild climate, agriculture is among the best in Japan. In addition to green tea and roses, which boast a production volume of 1,000, it seems that high-quality melons, strawberries, tomatoes, etc. are produced. In addition, traditional kudzu cloth and sweet potato sugar, Ishikawa small sweet potato and oatmeal that make use of the sandy soil facing the Enshu-nada Flowers are also cultivated. Blessed with a climate suitable for the growth of green tea, it is one of the leading tea-producing regions in Japan. Because of the long hours of sunshine, the tea leaves become thick, so the “deep-steamed” method, which takes a long time to finish, is used as a specialty product. It seems to have happened. Cumulative total of 1st place in the production area award at the National Tea Competition Awarded 20 times. In 2013, Shizuoka’s Chagusaba Agricultural Method, a traditional farming method that conserves biodiversity and is being practiced in Kakegawa City and surrounding towns, produces high-quality tea. It has been recognized as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System. The industry is the Tokaido Shinkansen Kakegawa Station in 1988 and the Tomei Expressway Kakegawa IC in 1993. It seems that an industrial park was created in the eastern hills in accordance with the invitation of the In addition, Daito Kami Hijikata Industrial Park and New Ecopolis Industrial Park are located in this area, taking advantage of the traffic access conditions and the natural environment. The value of manufactured goods shipped in 2014 was approximately 1.0674 trillion yen (according to the Industrial Statistics Survey), and within Shizuoka Prefecture, it is the third largest industrial production scale after Hamamatsu City, Iwata City, Shizuoka City, Kosai City, and Fuji City. It seems. In terms of commerce, there is a concentration of shopping streets and restaurants along the old Tokaido around the north exit of Kakegawa Station, forming a central urban area, and commercial areas can be seen in the Daijo and Osuga areas. The city was prosperous in the late 1965s, but with the expansion and suburbanization of the city, it seems that the resident population is decreasing, large stores are withdrawing, and the number of vacant stores is increasing. Currently, we are proceeding with a project based on the Kakegawa City Center Revitalization Basic Plan, and in 2015, a commercial facility was opened as part of the station-front urban area redevelopment project. Also, as of the end of August 2016, it seems that there were 12 of his large-scale stores with a store area of 3,000 m2 or more in the city. The Green tea plantation that utilizes the slopes of commercial facilities in the station square urban area redevelopment project also shines even more. According to Kakegawa Shiko, a topography compiled by the clan, Kakegawa tea began in 1572-1592, when Takada’s Soto sect Eijuji Temple was being rebuilt. It is said that the beginning of Kakegawa tea was brought back and planted in Yoshiokahara in Wadaoka. Kazutoyo Yamanouchi, the lord of Kakegawa Castle, built the Kyuenji Temple on the pass of Sayo no Nakayama The grounds of the temple are designated as cultural properties of the city.), and there is a scene in which Ieyasu was treated to green tea, indicating that tea culture was spreading along with the cultivation of tea around this time. During the Edo period, the Kakegawa Domain centered on the former Kakegawa City area in the north, and the Yokosuka Domain centered on the former Osuka Town in the south. After the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, after the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600, Kazutoyo moved to Tosa Kochi, and then Tokugawa Ieyasu’s half-brother Matsudaira Sadakatsu entered Kakegawa Castle. Since then, Kakegawa seems to have been assigned to small and medium-sized influential daimyo among the fudai daimyo. In the first half of the shogunate system society, the situation continued that even if a territory was entered, it was transferred in a short period of time. Mr. Ogasawara continued for 46 years for 4 generations, Mr. Ogasawara for 35 years for 3 generations, and Mr. Ota for 122 years for 7 generations until the Meiji era. Ota 7th generation 122 years : Suketoshi (1720-1764), a descendant of Dokan Ota, entered from Tatebayashi, Ueno Province (Gunma Prefecture) with 50,000 koku of rice in 1746. Since then, Mr. Ota, Sukechikasuke, Sukenobu, Suketoki, Sukemoto, Sukekatsu, and Sukeyoshi, for 7 generations and 122 years, held important posts in the shogunate such as magistrates of temples and shrines and senior councilors, while managing their own territory, the Kakegawa clan. He also put a lot of effort into politics. During Sukechika’s reign, the first clan school in the Enshu region was established within Kakegawa Castle (1801), initially called ‘North gate Shoin,’ later ‘Dharma warehouse Shoin,’ and ‘Kyokan.’ Kodo Matsuzaki (1771-1844: Confucian scholar in the late Edo period) was a professor at the Shohei School of the Tokugawa shogunate. It seems that his grandfather was a farmer named Genzo of the Yonemitsu clan. A monk named Eho lived with Genzo’s older sister and daughter. In addition to martial arts such as katana and spears, it seems that he was made to learn academics such as etiquette, social order, and Chinese history. In addition, at the domain school, not only clansmen but also young people from towns and villages who wanted to study seemed to be able to study. From 1806 to Bunsei (1818 to 1830), in order to use it as a basic document for the reform of the domain administration, he made a document called “Kakegawa Shiko” which summarized the history of inns and villages in the domain, population, products, famous historic sites, etc. It seems. In 1833, the Kakegawa feudal lord distributed a book called “Noyu” in his territory, and tried to make people prepare for normal life, such as saving money for bad years. Due to the influence of the Ota clan’s lineage of education, the cultural level of the entire domain increased, and it seems that the Enshu region flourished as the center of various aspects such as politics, economy, and culture. The “Tokaido Highroad” was developed as a post town on the Tokaido that connects Edo and Kyoto, and Kakegawa has two post towns, “Kakegawa inn” and “Nissaka inn”, and many people and goods come and go. The honjin and side honjin where feudal lords rest and stay overnight were established due to the system of sankin kotai, etc., and with the development of commerce and industry, merchants began to come and go, and lodging houses were apparently developed. There are 10 towns in Kakegawa inn: Ki Town, Nito Town, Shio Town, Renjaku Town, Sakana Town, Koya Town, Naka Town, Tonya Town, Kawara Town, and Nishi Town, as well as Shin Town, Jyukushu Town, and Shimomata Town. It is said that village headmen were placed in each of these 13 towns. Finances of the Kakegawa domain at the end of the Edo period and purveyors. While the demand for administrative expenses, such as military expenditures due to the political situation at the end of the century, increased, it seems that the government was in an extreme deficit. In order to overcome the financial deficit, the Kakegawa clan appointed wealthy local farmers and wealthy merchants as “Goyo-Tashi (a term referring to the act of undertaking the use of a prestigious house or organization and the contractor (merchant, organization))”. One of the influential people who worked for Goyotatsu chonin (The merchant for the office), who seemed to have allowed him to wear a sword in exchange for working in fundraising, was Manemon Yamazaki, who lived in Kakegawa Castle West Town. He is in juo town he moved his residence (commonly known as “Matsugaoka”) to Money, not only Goyo-Tashi of the Kakegawa clan, but also neighboring feudal lords of the Tanaka clan, Sagara clan, Yokosuka clan, and Hamamatsu clan, as well as the Nirayama magistrate’s office. It seems that he also served as a purveyor. As the Hotoku movement spread, from the end of the Tokugawa shogunate to the Meiji era, when Japan was about to begin modernization, it aimed to create a society in which morals and economics were in harmony. It seems that the hotoku movement that I aimed for has spread all over the country. The Hotoku movement in Kakegawa City began in 1848 when Saheiji Okada, a wealthy farmer who was a purveyor to the Kakegawa Domain in Kurama Village, established the Hotokusha Shrine in his hometown to save the struggling farmers and rebuild the impoverished village (Former Yamazaki Residence) is famous. Yumesaki Fruits and Vegetables Distribution Center (Regarding the tomato sorting plant), the farm and livestock product collection and shipping storage facility was completed in 2003. Established as a system for building highly competitive horticultural production areas that are trusted by consumers and market players. Non-destructive measurement by optical sensors, real-time measurement, sorting data management by sorting system, adoption of easy receipt system by mark sheet and IC chip, tracking of sorting process in the sorting factory, etc. Enshu Yumesaki Agricultural Cooperative is located in the midwestern part of Shizuoka Prefecture, covering Kikugawa City, the southern part of Kakegawa City, and the western part of Omaezaki City. The area faces the Enshunada Sea to the south, the Makinohara Plateau with tea plantations to the east, the Ogasayama Mountain Range to the west, and the Southern Alps branch of Mt. Kurigatake to the north. The “dry wind of Enshu” blows in winter, and the climate is mild throughout the year, with an average annual temperature of 15.8 degrees Celsius, an annual rainfall of 1,936 mm, and long hours of sunshine, making it suitable for agricultural production. The soil within the pipe consists of immature sand dunes (sand zone) near the coast of Enshunada in the south, gray lowland soil and gley soil in the plains of the Kikugawa basin to the north, and red-yellow soil in the Makinohara Plateau to the east formation. Within the jurisdiction, “Oi River irrigation water”, which draws water from the Oi River that flows on the east side of the Makinohara plateau, has been developed from early on, and it seems that water supply development is still underway through a pipeline development project. This production area is located roughly halfway between Shizuoka City and Hamamatsu City, both within an hour’s drive. In addition, it has good access to large consumption areas, 2 hours to Nagoya and 3 hours to Tokyo, and the logistics environment seems to be in place. Red Ole® (Kaneko Seedlings) tomatoes are medium-sized, the size of a ping-pong ball, and have a spherical fruit shape. The average weight of one fruit is about 40-50 g, and it is colored deep red and seems to be excellent in store life. The biggest feature is its fruity taste, and I hear that its high sugar content, low acidity, and viscous texture are far from the common sense of tomatoes so far. The grass shape is elongated, the grass is medium-strong, and it is a type that does not easily run out of stamina even in long-stage cultivation. The leaves are slightly large leaves, and the notches are strong, so the light seems to be sufficient. The flower clusters are basically single, and it seems that about 8 to 12 fruits are set per flower cluster. It is resistant to wilt disease (race 1) and ToMV (Tm-2a). In addition, it seems to be excellent in that abnormal main stem, end rot, streak rot, and malformed fruits are extremely rare.
In the jurisdiction, we are cultivating tomatoes that are loved by everyone, taking advantage of the location that boasts the longest hours of sunshine in Japan. The Youth Division of the JA Enshu Yumesaki Tomato Committee holds regular monthly meetings to improve quality, check color and sugar content, and conduct study sessions and seminars with the goal of “providing the best delicious tomatoes in Japan.” It seems that he is working hard to make more delicious tomatoes. The tomatoes grown by such people with great care are large, red, round in shape, and packed with nutrition and deliciousness under their firm skin.
At the Toyohashi Agricultural Technology Center in neighboring Aichi Prefecture, the consumption of cherry tomatoes is currently stagnant, and the market expects midi tomatoes as a new product. However, in order to meet the requirements for midi tomato products, such as a fruit weight of around 40 g and a high sugar content, it is important to select varieties, but at the same time, it is desirable to establish cultivation management to ensure high quality. Furthermore, when introducing midi tomatoes, it seems that it is important to develop new products such as harvesting bunches and to establish a production system that enables stable shipments all year round.
In the Yokosuka area in the southern part of Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture, the production of the traditional sugar “Yokosukashiro” that has been passed down since the Edo period is thriving. In the same area, sugar cane was cultivated from the Edo period, and sugar called “Yokosukashiro” was produced, but it was forced to stop once, and it seems that it was inherited by the preservation society after that. The members of the Preservation Society boil down the sugar cane juice while checking the temperature and stickiness of the sugar in a steamy factory. Only 5% to 6% of the harvested sugar cane is used as a product, and it is said to be characterized by its rich sweetness.
