From friend in August from Hirado-shi, Nagasaki

It is very delicious and disappears in no time as it is small bottle,
We were looking even for net, but do not readily sell.
We found, but the postage rises by one than product,
Therefore it is Nagasaki building to have hit.


If we call and hear, there seem to be all two kinds of them how,
We went for buying promptly.


This citron Pirie runs to tofu and ranks Yakitori and,
When we cook kimpira burdock and dried radish strips, we use and,
It is delicious even if we use for anything!
But in disappearing in no time when we use for dishes
We spend the present time at the age of pan.


If we ask the staff of Nagasaki building
Everybody does not seem to have eaten,
We recommended (laugh)

As for various food, glassworks, containers of specialty of Nagasaki,
When we have time, we want to come slowly again.

(Miura) anhari memorial park (Ito-shi)

[yaz] November 14, 2018 18:00

With total of 8 friends of volunteer guide group "Tokyo city guide club" where correspondent of Chuo-ku Tourism Association companion and I belonged to on November 10, 2018, Edo-jo Castle stone wall quarry climbed "nakou mountain of Usami". (going to report this for the third in January.)

As we visited "anhari memorial park" said to that Anjin Miura (William Adams) close to Ito Station constructed Western style ship, after the descent from a mountain, we report.

We are given mansion for Edo Nihonbashi, and anhari assumes daughter of village headman Magome perception transfer of administration (magomekageyu) of Nihonbashiodenmacho wife and gains the best man girl of Joseph and Susanna and shows connection that is strong with Nihonbashi. We went to the Orient in rifude with Jan Jooss ten in 1598 and were cast ashore in Usuki-shi, Oita with 24 crews. Ieyasu Tokugawa evaluated ability of Anjin Miura high and we commandeered as political diplomatic advisor and we gave Miura Peninsula Hemi village territory of 250 stones and gave warm reception other than mansion of Nihonbashi. The name of anhari depends on having named pilot tojianhari.

Commander-in-chief, Shogen Mukai and one shipwright of Uraga water forces and Adams constructed 80 tons of first Japanese Western style sailing boats using shipwright of Ito by order of Ieyasu in the mouth of Matsukawa (Chinese and Korean people River join) and, around Keicho era 9 through 11, surveyed the coast by this ship.

Place thought to be shipyard is side of "anhari memorial park".

We stood in shipyard and estimated place with friend. It is frank impression "to be smaller than imagination".

Receive order of Ieyasu again, and construct 120 tons of big ships which can appear in the open sea, and lend ship of these 120 tons to admiral bitongue of Hispania (Spain) afterwards in 1610, and via the United States to Acapulco (Mexico) the Pacific transversely cheap; arrived.

Water gate which protects Tsukuda, Tsukishima, Kachidoki, Harumi area

[yochan] November 14, 2018 14:00

Tsukuda, Tsukishima, Kachidoki, Harumi area has five water gates to protect town from flood. When it was toed the mark by outside dike, and water gate is set in boundary of area of the sea in area of the sea, and water level of outside area of the sea rises at high tide, we play a role to close water gate, and to prevent rise in water level of inner area of the sea. Area is followed at 5 gates of the water gate ⑤ Tsukishima river water gate in front of the ① Sumiyoshi water gate ② Tsukuda water gate ③ morning tide water gate ④ beach. As forms are different, and each five water gates was interesting, we introduce.

p-Tsukishima water gate image. jpg


①Sumiyoshi water gate

It is water gate protecting Tsukuda district from floods such as high tide. In having a single wing roller gate form, span is *1 4m. We were completed in 1965.

②Tsukuda water gate

It is water gate of entrance entering morning tide canal at Harumi canal. Span is *2 11.4m in wings of a biplane roller gate form. We were completed in 1963.

③Morning tide water gate

It is water gate of door linking the Tokyo Port to morning tide canal. Set of folding doors of *2 width 11.4m effective in swing gate form without headroom was adopted so that big ship could enter. We were completed in 1964. High ship of height was not able to go now because there was Ohashi from Kachidoki side at the dawn of cyclic Route 2 over Harumi side after having crossed Tsukiji Ohashi from the Tsukiji River.

④Water gate in front of the beach (Hamasaki)

At water gate preventing flood from new moon Shimakawa, it is having a single wing roller gate form of *1 8.4m between diameters, but operation room is water gate which there is not in the upper part of roller gate. We were completed in 1964.

⑤The Tsukishima river water gate

At water gate preventing flood from Tsukishima River, it is having a single wing roller gate form of *1 11m between diameters. We were completed in 1964.

④Water gate in front of the beach        ⑤The Tsukishima river water gate


Tsukishima River and new moon Shimakawa are things connecting the Sumida River and morning tide canal together, but, in the Tsukishima River, as for new moon Shimakawa, it is in canal in river. Therefore Tsukuda water gate and morning tide water gate and water gate in front of the beach become management of Tokyo Port Authority which is manager of canal, and the Tokyo construction station that is manager of river manages Sumiyoshi water gate and the Tsukishima river water gate. In the situation that manager of water gate which was the same area was different in, we felt some senses of incongruity.
