From the rich and prosperous state of shiitake mushrooms, which are indispensable to our ingredients. The fungus bed is recycled for compost as a high-quality organic material.
Murakami Shiitake Farm Co., Ltd. manufactures and sells shiitake mushrooms. We produce 800 tons of raw shiitake mushrooms per year, which we supply to many households. Based on cultivation methods that have been cultivated over many years, Oita brand fresh shiitake mushrooms are delivered nationwide. The Kunisaki Peninsula in Oita Prefecture is rich in nature and has high-quality sawtooth oak trees, so it seems that many people have been growing shiitake mushrooms for a long time. In 2013, the Kunisaki Peninsula, Usa Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Environment (GIAHS: The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), an international organization that aims to secure a stable food supply, is committed to preserving and sustaining traditional agriculture, culture, and landscapes that are in decline due to the effects of globalization, environmental degradation, and population growth. Areas that are being actively used are designated as Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems. A project started in 2002 to pass on a globally important agricultural region to the next generation. The Usa region of the Kunisaki Peninsula consists of 4 cities, 1 town and 1 village centered on a round peninsula jutting out from the southern end of the Seto Inland Sea in the northeastern part of Kyushu. The topography is the Futago mountain range in the center (the highest peak of the Kunisaki Peninsula, 720.6 meters above sea level. The foot of the mountain is dotted with temples of Rokugo-Manzan, and in recent years mandarin orange cultivation has flourished. The culture of syncretistic fusion of Shintoism and Buddhism, Shinbutsu-shugo has been handed down to this day.) was designated as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System. He is grateful that he can grow shiitake mushrooms in this area, and he seems to be working hard not to be ashamed of the blessings of nature. Or, Murakami Farm’s shiitake mushrooms have a good texture and flavor, and are characterized by little variation in the quality of the shiitake mushrooms. It is also a low-calorie food rich in dietary fiber and minerals. It is rich in guanylic acid and glutamic acid, which are flavor ingredients, so it is often used not only as an ingredient but also for making soup stock. All rooms are air-conditioned, and delicious shiitake mushrooms are attractive to everyone all year round. At Murakami Shiitake Farm, finely crushed Sawtooth Oak wood chips are divided into bags and sterilized with steam for 6 hours. After that, it is cooled sufficiently overnight and inoculated with the inoculum. Planting the inoculum is done carefully one by one in order to thoroughly prevent the invasion of other germs. After that, the small pieces of sawdust seem to be completely sealed to form fungal bed blocks. Maintain the temperature of the incubation room at 22-23°C, and manage the humidity and CO2 (carbon dioxide) concentration. Culturing for about 90-100 days. The sufficiently matured mushroom bed block is taken out of the bag, washed with water, and placed in the sprouting chamber. In the germination room, the natural environment of autumn (20°C temperature, 75% humidity), which is most suitable for mushroom growth, is reproduced and thoroughly managed. After about a week, when the caps of the shiitake mushrooms are fully open, it’s time to harvest them. It seems that the harvest is done manually one by one twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. Harvested shiitake mushrooms are first pre-cooled in a refrigerator and then sorted by size and shape. The sorted shiitake mushrooms are quickly packed by machine. Pillow packaging (a method in which a single sheet of film is sealed back-to-back to form a cylinder, the bottom is sealed to a specified length, and the packaging is cut into a shape. It depends on the shape and length of the product.) It seems to be superior in keeping freshness compared to tray wrap packaging. Efforts to improve the product value of Oita-grown shiitake mushrooms and branding them (2018-): Maintaining the specialty image of Oita-grown shiitake mushrooms, nationwide expansion of “Oita-grown shiitake mushrooms”, and aiming to establish the specialty image of AEON Group and Yume Town We aim to expand sales channels for packaged products, targeting major mass retailers such as In the short term, increase added value and improve profitability by shifting from bulk (cardboard) to packaged products. In the long term, we will increase the number of products by disseminating products through major mass retailers with the ability. We aim to maintain the specialty image of “Oita-produced shiitake mushrooms”, improve the product value of “Oita-produced shiitake mushrooms”, and brand them. Bungotakada City in Oita Prefecture is a town where the old days are still alive. It is famous as a town where you can learn about and experience the good old days, such as the beautiful nature that has been passed down over a thousand years, the rich climate created by the history of culture, the old townscape, and traditional events. Located in the northwestern part of the Kunisaki Peninsula in northern Oita Prefecture, it faces the Suo Sea. With Usa City to the west, Kunisaki City to the east, and Kitsuki City to the south, the city belongs to the Setouchi climate, which is blessed with abundant nature and a warm climate. Oita City is about 60 km away, and Kitakyushu City is about 90 km away, which is relatively close to both cities. Economically, it belongs to the Nakatsu metropolitan area, a small economic zone centered on Nakatsu city. From the eastern part to the southern part of the region, mountains such as Mt. Saiei, Mt. Igun, Mt. Yayama, Mt. Ouri, and Mt. The Katsura River, Matama River, and Takeda River run through the valley, and the urban area seems to have formed near the mouth of the river. The area includes the Setonaikai National Park and the Kunisaki Peninsula Prefectural Natural Park, and is rich in nature, including the natural landscapes of the mountainous and coastal areas, historic sites related to the Rokugo Manzan culture, Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems, landscapes of rural villages, and Hana no Misaki Nagasakibana. Abundant local resources such as historical culture. The city flower is the cosmos, and the city tree is the persimmon. Efforts of the buckwheat production area and expansion of cropping season and regional revitalization: The coastal area consists of flat land extending from the Usa Plain, former reclaimed land from the late Edo period, and government-owned reclaimed land. Running, farmland and residential land exist in this valley. Agriculture is largely divided into the coastal reclaimed land and the hilly and mountainous hinterland, with large-scale farming centered on white green onions being developed in the reclaimed land. Hinterland in addition to paddy rice, wheat, soybeans, and buckwheat are planted. The introduction of buckwheat seems to date back to 2002. At that time, the city promoted community farming and group crop rotation as part of its vision for paddy field agriculture, mainly planting wheat and soybeans. It seems that there was. However, the paddy fields in the city are prone to dampness due to the clayey soil. Especially in mid-July, when soybeans are sown, rainfall at the end of the rainy season makes it difficult to sow seeds, and the work is often greatly delayed. As a result, there were many fields where the yield was less than half of the target, and it seems that most of the farmers were in a situation where they could not come up with expenses with crop income alone. I have heard that for the aging farmers, intertillage soil and disease and pest control under high temperatures were hard work. Under such circumstances, it seems that some farmers approached us to make buckwheat as a new crop to replace soybeans. At the same time, in the city, local As a measure to revitalize the shopping district. It seems that many tourists have come to visit the shopping street, which used to be a so-called “shutter street”, where only dogs and cats walk. In addition, on the commercial, industrial and tourism side, the traditional tourism resource of “French”. It seems that they were considering “buckwheat” as an ingredient that would suit “Nosato” and the new tourist destination “Showa no Machi”. Buckwheat does not have a large production area in the prefecture, and it is not a major product, so it is difficult to judge whether it is suitable for the region. It seems that the fact that the agricultural equipment for cultivation can be used as it is and that no new investment is required, and the scenery of the white flowers of buckwheat was perfect for the image of “Buddhist village” and “Showa town”. Membership is a community farming organization, etc. in each district, with a basic buckwheat cultivation area of 1 ha or more. Promote local production for local consumption in cooperation with Showa town and local favorite shops. In addition, we will actively promote interaction with city residents by making use of the multifaceted functions of soba, aim to create a production area where agriculture and tourism are in harmony, and widely publicize Bungo Takada’s buckwheat. Held the “Bungotakada Buckwheat Festival”. Fiscal 2022 Bungotakada Agricultural Revitalization Council Rice Paddy Profitability Enhancement Vision, Current Status of Crop Planting in the Region, Issues Facing the Region: Wheat, soybeans, new demand rice (feed rice, WCS rice), buckwheat, etc. account for a large proportion of the area, and it seems that efforts are being made to improve the food self-sufficiency rate and self-sufficiency capacity. In addition, land-use type farming for low-cost production. It seems that the accumulation of things to bearers is also progressing gradually. As the demand for staple food rice is declining, it is necessary to maintain the area of paddy fields by promoting crop rotation. On the other hand, white green onion, which is one of the leading production areas in western Japan, is highly profitable and many farmers want to expand its scale. In addition, farmers in hilly and mountainous areas are aging, and the decrease in farmers and lack of workers are major problems. It seems that it is important to integrate farmland into existing certified farmers, farming organizations, and agricultural union corporations, in addition to securing new farmers and other bearers. Policies and goals of efforts as a production area to strengthen profitability by introducing highly profitable crops and increasing the added value of crop rotation. In order to stabilize the yield, we continue to promote drainage measures such as casting ditch drain, mole drain, and ridge making seeding. However, in some fields, wheat and soybean yields are low even when these drainage measures are implemented. In such fields, local livestock farmers promote the branding of cows feeding rice for feed, which is called “Oita Premium Bungo Rice Finished Beef” (more than 200 kg of rice for feed produced in Oita Prefecture). Promoting the planting of rice for animal feed. In addition, we are promoting highly profitable crops such as pearl barley as crops that can be expected to grow in demand in the future. How much? In addition, it seems that white onions, which are being promoted as a city specialty product, will also be promoted along with efforts to turn paddy fields into upland fields. In selecting particularly profitable items, efforts will be made to convert white green onions into upland fields and consolidation of horticultural items, for which there are many intentions to expand the area, and to secure supporters through existing farmers, new farmers, and companies entering the market. Effort policies and goals as a production area for the effective use of paddy fields, including conversion to upland fields. As an initiative for effective use of paddy fields, including conversion to upland fields, effective cultivation depth for white green onions. It seems that they will focus on improving the field conditions that are suitable for the cultivation technology of the production area by securing underdrainage to improve drainage and drainage. For other highly profitable crops, farmer’s school. It seems that they are actively working on attracting new farmers and attracting companies to enter greenhouse horticulture by utilizing training institutes such as training centers. In order to avoid deterioration of the soil environment due to continuous cropping and to promote cooperation within the region, it seems that block rotation is also being worked on. In addition, in order to establish a crop rotation system, the personnel and farmland plans will be reviewed as needed, and it will support the training and securing of the people who will support the region. In addition, taking advantage of opportunities to confirm crop changes and discuss personnel and farmland plans, we inspect the use of paddy fields, and if there are farmlands that have not been used as paddy fields for many years, we cooperate with related organizations and support the conversion of them into upland fields. It seems that they are considering turning it into a farmland by utilizing such as. Furthermore, in order to verify whether these efforts are progressing appropriately toward the goal and whether the content of support is effective, etc., it seems that the PDCA cycle will be thoroughly implemented. It seems that the Tashibu area of Bungotakada City has been attracting attention as an area that retains the scenery of a medieval manor. Since 1979, the Oita Prefectural Fudoki-no-Oka Museum of History and Folklore (currently the Oita Prefectural Museum of History) has conducted a “manor village ruins survey” to investigate ruins that have already fallen asleep (remains of castles, mansions, etc.) and people who actually live there. It seems that it was the first survey in Japan of ‘village ruin’s as a complex of living ruins (villages, cultivated land, irrigation systems, etc.) that are connected to the land. It seems that this survey was also a survey of farmland maintenance that brought about unprecedented transformation in Japanese farming villages. Disappearance of historical information due to large-scale alteration of topography, replacement of irrigation water and rivers, disappearance of “rural landscape” that lives as a whole of human activities. It seems to have spread throughout the country, resonating with the 2008 Declaration on Farmland Maintenance. On the other hand, regarding the preservation of Tashibu no Sho, studies began from both academic and private perspectives at the beginning of the Heisei era, but the rural landscape was preserved within the scope of protection (historic sites, etc.) under the Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties at the time. There seems to be some disagreement about that. The value of manor village ruins such as Tashibu came to be widely recognized, but it seems that it was difficult to preserve the landscape through designation as a historic site from the aspect of livelihood. Discussions about the designation of the site as a historic site continued, but on the other hand, it seems that talks about farmland maintenance were gaining momentum. Also, in 1998, with the change of mayor, there was a new development for protection. A historian proposed the maintenance and inheritance of the shape of the paddy fields through the introduction of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisherie’s project at the time, the “Rural Space Museum Development Project”. It seems that the rudder has been turned in the direction of saving. The Rural Space Museum development project ensured the convenience of mechanization, etc., while maintaining the shape of the paddy fields and irrigation equipment (using his U-shaped ditch for the water channel, and allowing work vehicles to pass through the farm road). Implemented as In the same year, in the Tashibu Osaki area Even so, they organized the “Shoen Native Place Promotion Committee”, started the “manor lord system (rice field owner system)”, and even held events such as the “rice planting festival” and “harvest festival.” In 2004, the revision of the Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties introduced the concept of “cultural landscape”, and together with the law, the selection of “important cultural landscapes” began. From 2006 to 2010, the city is conducting a survey to select an important cultural landscape in the Tashibu Osaki district, whose cultural value was known early on. Organized the “Tashibu no Sho Osaki District Landscape Preservation Investigation Committee”, and in addition to historical elements, conducted surveys of the natural elements such as vegetation, animals, topography, geology, weather, and buildings that make up the area. It seems that these were found to be extremely important as the elements that make up the region. In addition, since the city had not enacted a landscape ordinance, the “Scenery Creation Study Group” was launched, and in December 2009, the Bungotakada City Tashibu no Sho Osaki Landscape Creation Ordinance was enacted, and notification acts under the Landscape Law were established. , and in January 2010, the “Landscape Plan” was enacted. Also, in January 2010, the “Rural Landscape Preservation Plan” was formulated, which indicates the value as a cultural landscape and guidelines for preservation through landscape planning. In January, a selection application was submitted for the area that met the requirements for important cultural landscapes, and on August 5, 2010, it was selected as a national important cultural landscape “rural landscape”. In addition, due to the non-implementation of the national land survey, areas called “Oku” (Doyama, Masubuchi, Ukaki, Kofuji), which were outside the scope of application and selection in 2010, will be selected for additional selection from fiscal 2013. investigation started. It is After conducting a survey (regarding the water supply system, satoyama agriculture, etc.) regarding the scope of the additional selection, confirming the value as a cultural landscape, and discussing the preservation of the landscape, such as the handling of the constituent elements, in January 2016 Formulated the “Secondary Selected Cultural Landscape Preservation Plan for Rural Landscape”. After that, at the end of January of the same year, it seems that the selection request was made with the conditions for “Oku”. An additional selection was made on October 3, 2016, and when combined with the primary selection, the entire area of Tashibu-Osaki and a portion of Tashibu Manchu (the entire landscape planning area) were selected. It seems that almost the entire range that can be seen when standing in Tashibu no Sho Osaki was selected as a rural landscape. In response to the fact that the entire area of the plan was selected, this is a plan that shows the specific contents and promotion methods for preservation and utilization in order to properly preserve the value of important cultural landscapes in rural landscapes and pass them on to future generations. (Agricultural and residential areas located in the western part of the Kunisaki Peninsula in Oita Prefecture, which originated in the Usa Hachimangu manor ruins dating back to the Middle Ages. Good cultural landscape for. A cultural landscape that shows the basic land use patterns for agriculture and residence on the Kunisaki Peninsula, which evolved gradually from the early modern period to the modern period. 九華安東翁寿蔵碑: 翁姓大神氏安東初名宗明字子成称貞五郎九華其號也後以號為名豊後人其先出自大神城主大神惟基世属大友氏天正中田原親貫拠鞍懸城叛大友氏也十四世之祖宮内少輔鎮景興弟大膳亮統貞共力戦屡有軍功食来干国東郡佐野子孫因家為考日宗行妣日吉子林氏女翁以文政八年乙酉三月廿五日生幼而学野本白厳之門成童更師事愚亭帆足先生受経義及窮理説若冠喪父襲里正職明治四年廃藩置県為大分県第一大区二小区戸長尋為区長歴任三潴福岡大分三県累遷西国東郡長廿三年国会開設翁以公選為衆議院議員無幾解散再選推為副議長候補被挙干全院委員長叉遇解散家居養老不復任翁資姓温雅局量寛宏不與物件才敏学富常抱愛国済世之志蚤歳為吏至白首是以精練干吏務処事妥當清廉持躬尤致力於学政土工至如公共之事業則擲資不吝其為福岡県属也会秋月騒擾及薩賊之乱人心淘々有土崩之虞翁参県庁之機務従事干鎮撫功労頗多其為西国東郡長也洞察下情緩猛相済為郡民所悦服官賞賜金及銀盃木盃前後無算方国会出開也氏権之説大起而議者分党相軋翁興懸名士是恒真揖元田肇等乗正不阿初結大成会後入国民協会議論公平多所匡済已家居而忠黨之念終始不衰云今茲丗二年五月翁七十四郷人相謀為翁建寿蔵碑徴余銘辞余興翁莫逆友也不得辞乃銘之日九華之峰 婉然王容 高聳雲表霊秀所鐘 篤生賢士 維安東翁 競研儷美 仁寿其同 令聞令徳 郷党之宗 明治三十二年五月―貴族院議長公爵 近衛篤麿額表 従五位 元田直 撰文中教正 糸永茂昌隷字.

The sawtooth oak tree on the Kunisaki Peninsula is one of the elements that are designated as World Heritage Sites. It seems that the fungus bed block is made from chipped sawtooth oak trees. In addition, all rooms are fully air-conditioned to reproduce the autumn season. Since it is a living thing, it seems that daily observation and management are important. Murakami Shiitake Farm Co., Ltd. practices fungal bed cultivation (fungal bed cultivation is a method of cultivating mushrooms on a fungal bed (artificial medium in which nutritious sources such as rice bran are mixed with a wooden substrate such as sawdust).
On January 31, 2023, 35 students from the 5th to 8th grades of Taisei Gakuen (Matsuyuki: elementary and junior high school) are experiencing shiitake mushroom shooting at a local sawtooth oak logging site. In this hands-on class, by experiencing the production process of locally grown log-grown shiitake mushrooms, you can learn about the agriculture, forestry and fisheries system maintained by the sawtooth oak forests and irrigation ponds that have been certified as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System. It seems that it was held with the cooperation of the Takada Shiitake Mushroom Producers Association and the Oita Prefecture Northern Promotion Bureau. It seems that there were about 4,000 pieces prepared on that day. The students hit pieces with hammers into sawtooth oak logs that had been cut for hodagi. It seems that the important thing here is that there is no “unevenness”. It seems that if there is unevenness, bacteria will enter through the holes and the wood will rot.
