Isn’t it named for its low-temperature heading properties, few physiological disorders, and the gorgeousness of place names and products?
Commercial promotion and development of urban areas in response to consumer needs, current situation and issues: declining birthrate and aging population, changes in consumer purchasing needs, location of large-scale stores in the suburbs of urban areas. As a result, an increase in the number of vacant stores in existing shopping districts and an increase in underutilized land such as vacant land is seen nationwide, and there are concerns about a decline in the vitality and hollowing out of central urban areas. In Koga City, shopping streets are formed mainly in the urban area of Koga District. An outflow is seen, and the number of vacant stores and non-stores in shopping districts has increased. Changes in the environment surrounding consumer purchasing trends, such as the spread of orders and deliveries via the Internet, are changing dramatically, dramatically increasing the convenience of shopping for citizens. However, on the other hand, there is a concern that the connection between people that is unique to face-to-face stores, the place where local residents belong, and the place where tourists who visit Koga City can be lost. As urbanization progresses, the promotion of shopping streets is required from the viewpoint of maintaining the community. In addition, since urban areas such as station squares function as the face of the city and as a symbol of the city’s vitality, it is necessary to create bustle in urban areas. In addition to developing the Chuomachi Square and the station west exit square, the city has supported the creation of bustle through the town revitalization promotion support project. It is necessary to promote efforts toward. Koga is the furthest place from the sea in Ibaraki Prefecture, with the Watarase River flowing nearby. Hosted by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, supervised by the Association for Spreading Furukawa River Fish Cuisine, the 4th Cold Season Saturday Eel Festival was held. Date and time: January 29, 2023 (Sunday), 9:30-14:00 Venue: Koga Station West Exit Festival Square (Furukawa City Honmachi) Eel bento and specialty food stewed in soy sauce by restaurants in the city and sugar etc. are sold. Main measures: Support for the promotion of regional commerce and the improvement of management foundations. Development and support for commercial and industrial organizations.

Support efforts to effectively utilize vacant stores by promoting countermeasures against vacant stores and collaborating with related organizations. Performance indicators, indicator names, current values (at the time of planning), target values (FY2017). Promotion of Industry and Attraction of Companies Utilizing Regional Characteristics Current Situation and Issues: With the background of globalization, companies are expanding overseas, and there have been concerns over the hollowing out of the domestic manufacturing industry for many years. As the economy changes from moment to moment, efforts are being made all over the country to promote existing industries and attract new companies. Koga City is located within a 50-60 km radius from the center of Tokyo, and taking advantage of its good traffic access via National Route 4 and New Route 4, it has developed the Okari Industrial Park, the Kitatone Industrial Park, and the Sakama Industrial Park. It seems that they have been promoting the invitation of companies to corporate parks. Currently, we are pursuing the opening of the Ken-O Expressway Sakai-Koga Interchange in March 2015 and the advance of the automobile industry into the Koganasaki Industrial Park. We are trying to promote further industrial development. The promotion of industry and other industries not only revitalizes the local economy, but also creates stable employment in rural areas, as stated in the “comprehensive strategy” presented by the government to overcome population decline. It seems that it is essential to encourage young people to migrate and settle down, to curb population decline, and to maintain the vitality of the city. For this reason, we will continue to create an environment for early operation and attract related companies in order to make the most of the opportunity to have a major impact on the future of Koga City, such as the advancement of the automobile industry. At the same time, it seems that it is necessary to focus on creating local employment and creating an environment for workers and their families to move and settle. In addition to continuing support for the promotion of existing industries, it is also necessary to continue to put effort into further promotion activities that take advantage of Koga City’s advantages such as transportation access. Main measures: Support for enhancing the management base of existing industries. It seems that they plan to promote comprehensive regional industry. It seems that the financial burden will be reduced by subsidizing interest and guarantee fees for small and medium-sized business fund users. Promotion of activities to attract companies and promotion of employment and settlement: Promotion of development Promotion of development of the Koganasaki industrial park, which is a new industrial park, and By supporting the transfer of industry, it seems that the prefecture’s first industry, the automobile manufacturing industry, will be promoted. Promotion of business attraction. In addition to improving the use of industrial land, we will promote the attraction of companies by taking measures to support location. Promoting Settlement in Accompanied by Invitation of Companies Expand employment in the city and promote settlement centered on employees of local companies. Support for management innovation: Support for cross-industrial exchange and industry-government-academia collaboration Support efforts. Performance indicators: Indicator name, current value (at the time of planning), target value (FY2017). Current status and challenges of promoting agriculture to provide a stable food supply: The environment surrounding Japan’s agriculture is becoming severe due to changes in people’s tastes regarding food and the influx of cheap foreign agricultural products, but the Pacific Rim Strategy. As a result of reaching agreement in principle on the Economic Partnership Agreement (TPP) in October 2015, Japan’s agriculture has been required to further strengthen its competitiveness. Agriculture in Koga City has developed as a suburban agriculture, taking advantage of the fertile land created by the Tonegawa River and the Watarase River, and the fact that it is located within a 50 to 60 km radius of central Tokyo, making it highly convenient for transportation. Rice cultivation and vegetable cultivation have been actively carried out. However, similar to the nationwide trend, the agricultural environment in Koga City seems to be facing a difficult environment due to an increase in abandoned farmland due to sluggish prices of agricultural products, an aging workforce, and a shortage of successors. In recent years, there have been cases of incorporation due to the expansion of management scale, and we are promoting the training of farmers along with the support of certified farmers. In addition to promoting support, it is necessary to stabilize management. In addition to serving as a base for production, farmland also has a variety of multi-faceted roles, including conservation of the natural environment and disaster prevention. It is necessary to grasp the current situation of such incidents and continue efforts to prevent their occurrence and eliminate them. Furthermore, consumers are becoming more conscious of safety, security, and quality of agricultural products. Since then, we have promoted direct sales and processed sales of agricultural products where the producers can be seen, as well as promoting “local production for local consumption”. It seems that going forward will be a challenge. Main measures: Strengthen management of agriculture and develop farmers Collaboration of Strengthen. Fostering and supporting local agricultural leaders Fostering and securing certified farmers who will lead regional agriculture, and fostering and supporting new farmers and young people and women who will become successors of agriculture in the future plan. Fostering farmers and groups and strengthening agricultural productivity. We will promote the creation of profitable agriculture by providing information and support so that we can strengthen the organization of producer groups and make it an attractive occupation for young people. Effective use of farmland and Efficient farm management In addition to promoting the introduction and establishment of crop replacement crops, farmers who are considering downsizing or converting farm management, and farmers who have difficulty managing farm land, aggregate farmland to leading farmers and use agricultural land. Promote the efficiency and sophistication of Improving production bases and farm village environments: Securing and preserving quality farmland. Based on the agricultural promotion regional development plan, we will determine policies for conserving quality farmlands and improving production bases and environments, and promote systematic agriculture. Comprehensive maintenance of agricultural land In addition to carrying out necessary maintenance such as expanding and generalizing farmland, we will carry out necessary infrastructure maintenance such as land readjustment, irrigation channels, farm roads, etc., and improve agricultural production. Efforts will be made to develop an integrated environment for stable management, such as stabilization and efficiency. Promoting eco-friendly farming activities Proper treatment of agricultural waste plastics, proper use of pesticides, promotion of eco-farmer certification, promotion of systems for special cultivation agricultural products, etc., and efforts to promote environmental conservation. Farmland Conservation and Elimination of Abandoned Cultivated Land (Idle Agricultural Land) Grasp the current status of abandoned cultivated land, promote networking with agricultural-related organizations, etc., and prevent and eliminate abandoned cultivated land based on the wishes of the owners. It seems that they are working hard to conserve farmland. Koga’s brand building through agriculture and agricultural products, and promotion of experiences and exchanges: Promotion of sixth industrialization for the purpose of processing and selling agricultural products, Ibaraki Prefectural Agricultural Processing Guidance Center, etc. In cooperation with, we aim to foster and support the sixth industrialization of processing businesses. Promotion of local production for local consumption Collaborate with farmers groups to promote the use of local agricultural products at schools and welfare facilities. At the same time, we promote local production for local consumption by selling at direct sales stores and events. To promote the improvement of the brand power of agricultural products, and to compete with cheap foreign agricultural products, Promote product branding to achieve differentiation. Promoting the improvement of the name recognition of the production area, actively publicizing “roses”, “carrots”, “bitter melons” and “sunny lettuce”, which have been designated as prefecture brand production areas, to the market and consumers, etc. Promoting top and image improvement. Exchange between urban and rural areas Taking advantage of the location in the suburbs of Tokyo, day-trip green tourism is the basis, and as a platform for urban residents and baby boomers, we aim to enhance opportunities for exchange through agricultural experiences, tourist orchards, and allotment farms. Stable supply of safe and secure agricultural and livestock products. We will promote initiatives such as radioactive material inspections, publication of inspection results on our website, production history, thorough registration, agricultural production process management (GAP), etc., so that consumers can enjoy safe, secure and high-quality agricultural and livestock products from Koga City. provided to. Performance indicators, indicator names, current values (at the time of planning), target values (FY2017). Natural and Geographical Conditions: The total area of the area is 123.58H, of which 113.90H, or 92%, is habitable. Looking at land use in 2004 by type of land, paddy fields accounted for the most at 45.28%, followed by residential land at 21.34% and forests and fields at 7.83%. Compared to 1994, it can be seen that while the proportion of residential land has increased, the proportion of natural land use such as farmland, forests and wilderness has decreased. Located almost in the center of the Kanto Plain, on the western edge of Ibaraki Prefecture, it borders Saitama Prefecture to the west, Tochigi Prefecture to the north, Yuki City and Yachiyo Town to the east, and Goka Town, Sakai Town, and Sashima Town to the south. The terrain is flat over most of the area, and the climate is generally mild, so it can be said that the area is blessed with natural conditions for living and production. In addition, Tokyo, Saitama City, Utsunomiya City. In addition to the geographical condition that the distance is 50 to 60D, including the JR Utsunomiya Line. Since transportation networks such as Route 4 and New Route 4 are well maintained, Exchanges with Saitama new downtown, Oyama, and Utsunomiya are prosperous, and in recent years, the concentration of population, housing, and industrialization has progressed. Koga City has a history dating back to ancient times, with its name appearing in “Manyoshu” and “Azumakagami”. It prospered as one of the political and cultural centers of the Kanto region during the Muromachi period in the Middle Ages and the Edo period in the early modern period. In the early Meiji period, the Koga clan was incorporated into Koga, Inba, and Chiba prefectures due to the Abolition of the han system, and finally into Ibaraki prefecture in 1875. Since the Meiji period, the silk industry has supported the industry. I was. In 1950, it became the fourth municipality in the prefecture, and in 1955 it merged with Shingo Village in Sashima County to form the current city area, and has developed as a core city in the western region of the prefecture. Sowa Town was born in 1955 by merging four villages of Katori Village, Sakurai Village, Katsushika Village, and Okago Village in Sashima County, and Sowa Village was born. During this period, the establishment of a new farming village construction plan and ordinance to attract industries, designation of urban development areas under the Metropolitan Area Development Law, construction of the Okasato and Kitatone industrial parks and the Komabane residential park, etc. changed the form from a pure farming village to a rural industrial city. Is changing to In 1955, three villages, Koshima Village, Yamata Village, and Nazaki Village in Yuki County merged to form Miwa Village. It has developed mainly through agriculture since ancient times, but due to the fact that it is within the 60D radius of the capital, new agriculture such as open-field vegetable and flower cultivation in the suburbs of the city has been developed, and housing development has progressed. Changed from an agricultural-residential mixed regional structure. On October 25, 2022, Koga City, Ibaraki Prefecture, the National Kominka Reconstruction Association (Uchisaiwai Town, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo), and the Koga Branch of the National Empty House Advisor Council signed the nation’s first “Agreement on Vacant Houses, etc.” has been concluded. Through cooperation and cooperation, the number of vacant houses, including old folk houses, will be reduced, proper management and utilization will be pursued, and the local living environment will be conserved and revitalized. It seems that the main items of cooperation and cooperation include sharing information on vacant houses, controlling the occurrence and utilization of vacant houses, giving advice on the conservation and restoration of vacant houses, and promoting regional revitalization and immigration and settlement using vacant houses. “Sowa” is one of the Zuishochi names. It seems that So is a new place name with the wish of Japanese harmony from the old name of the country “Shimousa”. As for the same “auspicious sign name（瑞祥名: 吉兆）”, there are now former Sanwa Town in the eastern part of Koga city, and neighboring municipalities such as Yachiyo Town, former Akeno Town, former Kyowa Town, and former Chiyoda Village. It seems that there are various theories about Tsukubamirai City, which is also my countryside. The original Okago village was established in April 1889 by merging the villages of Kami-Ono, Inamiya, Kozutsumi, and Sekido. The new village name seems to come from the fact that Kami-Ono, “Inamiya”, and Sekido have been called ‘Okago’ since ancient times. It is known that during the Edo period, among the villages of the former Koga domain, the area east of Koga Castle was called ‘Okago’. List of agricultural products certified by Koga City at the beginning of September 2021.

In addition, exchanges with Saitama New Urban Center, Oyama, and Utsunomiya are active. In recent years, population, housing, and industrialization have been concentrated. “古河”は, 古く“許我”と表記. The scene of that time is described in the Manyoshu. It was already crowded as a ferry port for the Watarasegawa River from the Nara Period. ‘万葉集 / 巻十四, 東歌’ − 逢（あ）はずして 行かば惜しけむ 真久良我 (まくらが) の 許我 (こが) 漕ぐ船に 君も逢はぬかも; お会いしないままで 出かけてはとても残念だよ. 真久良我の許我を漕ぐ舟の上の貴方にお会いできたらいいのに（3558）, 真久良我の 許我の渡（わたり）の 韓楫; 可良加治 (舵; からかぢ) の 音高 (おとだか) しもな 寝（ね）なへ児ゆゑ（ヱ）に; 真久良我の 許我の渡しの韓楫（梶）の音が高いように 噂が高く立ったよ. 未だ共寝をした娘ではないのに（3555）.

Quoting Kunio Yanagita（1875-1962）’s “Research of Name of Places, 1936”, Koga is not an undeveloped land at the intersection of Watatsu, so it is unnatural to originate from empty space, and “Kaga” means lawn or grassland. There is also a hypothesis that it is a corruption of. Furthermore, considering the characteristics of the topography of ancient Furukawa, it was a narrow land surrounded by water, so this hypothesis is also lacking in conclusive evidence. Ancient Koga faced Oku-Tokyo Bay, which was formed by the sea spreading to the inland area, and Tatezaki, which was a breakwater on the south side (Tatezaki at that time was a tongue-shaped plateau extending from Hase toward the inner citadel of Koga Castle). The north side is a good natural harbor with coves in the direction of Daikanmachi and Tamachi. During strong winds from the southeast due to typhoons in autumn and strong winds from the west in winter, boats are anchored and temporary lodgings waiting for the wind to stop. I thought it was. If that’s the case, could it be a stage for a short-lived love story, just as it was sung in the Manyoshu? Appearance of “Oshin Chinese cabbage”: It is the same as ordinary Chinese cabbage, but the leaves are yellower toward the inside. The leaves tend to be soft, freshly picked and fresh and sweet. Chinese Cabbage – The arrival to Japan was unexpectedly late, around the beginning of the Meiji era. Even at that time, it was difficult to collect seeds and it was not widely used. The Japanese army at that time brought back the seeds that had largely headed in the former Manchuria and Korea to Japan: In the Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War. Agricultural workers repeated trial production, which was the reason for the spread nationwide. For the cultivation of Chinese cabbage, we select varieties and fertilizers that will produce better results, and cultivate them while doing research every year. We predict the weather, actively acquire new knowledge, and always consider the health of our customers and grow our products in a way that is close to the natural state.
Oushin65 Chinese cabbage is a popular yellow core type that makes the yellow color stand out in the pickles in the pot. A 65-day type that is easy to make and is a powerful variety that is resistant to downy mildew, soft rot, root lumps, and virus diseases. An excellent variety of Wase with a yellow core that can be harvested about 65 days after sowing. Disease resistant and easy to make. The ball is beautifully held, has a good back, weighs about 2.5 to 3 kg, and has good ball alignment. The inner color of the ball is dark yellow. It has excellent quality and a lot of sweetness. Sweet and flavorful, suitable for pickles. It is also delicious for simmered dishes and pots.
Although it is not limited to this area, it seems that Chinese cabbage producers are also aging. Continuing to grow only Chinese cabbage on the same plot of land also causes continuous crop failure. It is a crop that belongs to the Brassicaceae family, and when the same crop is grown in the same soil, it is said that there is a nutritional imbalance in the soil and it is susceptible to insects and bacteria. As a cause of replant failure, pests that were parasitic on previously grown vegetables remain in the soil and damage subsequent plants of the same variety. Special ingredients secreted from the roots of the previously grown vegetables remain in the soil, which adversely affects the next planted vegetables. Fertilizer composition in the soil is extremely unbalanced. It seems that there are various possible causes. In any case, it seems that growing the same kind of vegetables in the same place year after year is never a good thing.
Using the fact that the evaporation temperature of water drops when the air pressure drops, the pressure is lowered so that the evaporation temperature is below the product temperature. It evaporates the water contained in fruits and vegetables (vegetables and fruits) from the surface, takes away the latent heat of evaporation, and cools. The vacuum cooling device requires a short cooling time and can be cycled. As excess moisture evaporates during cooling, quality is maintained even when harvested in rainy weather. Since it is evenly cooled even when it is packed in a box, it seems that no special equipment is required other than the cooling equipment after vacuum pre-cooling.
