Attractive rediscovery of Ibaraki! Place where IBARAKI sense glitters

[Hanes] December 4, 2018 12:00

Hello. It is Hanes (splashes) of new face correspondent
One month or more passed from reopening of antenna shop IBARAKI sense (Ibaraki sense) of Ibaraki,
Did everybody go to new shop yet?
On the day of the reopening, actress Miho Shiraishi from Ibaraki, tape cutting by actor Gota Watabe and others were carried out and became topic!
I dropped in with co-worker concerning Ibaraki native place on the open day, too

(state of store during renewal construction)

We are reborn than before in higher-grade stylish space with open feeling,
Impression of Ibaraki should improve so as to recover in charm degree ranking at a stretch

IBARAKI sense.jpg
(state of store of the beginning of November)
By the way, when we say what Hanes bought in antenna shop of Ibaraki...
■Saza Coffee (sazakohi)
Saza Coffee of BARA cafe where answer is established by IBARAKI sense
"Coffee and person of thought may come by anything", too,
In fact, it is slightly deluxe self roast coffee which is loved by reputation in this, the prefecture by citizen of the prefecture if delicious

BARA cafe.jpg

This coffee house which operator of movie theater "Katsuta Takarazuka Theater" founded in 1969,
We establish direct management farm in South American Columbian kauka in 1997
In 2017, we won first championship at competitive show of FNC korombiakauka prefecture
As it is evaluated at production center of coffee beans, we cannot overlook authority of coffee!
You can eat only several kinds in this cafe,
In store of Saza Coffee, there are Yoshitomo Tokugawa (even if good) him and thing called "General Tokugawa coffee" which makes collaboration, and was born for the fourth generation of the Yoshinobu Tokugawas.
As for this, in the case of opening of a port negotiations of 1867, Prince Yoshinobu employs French cook,
We investigated documents when I gave coffee of service to European and American minister and reappeared
It becomes modern version of French coffee of the late Tokugawa period
Is neither coffee enthusiast nor history enthusiast worried about the flavor?
In this way, Ibaraki where relations are close by the Tokugawas connection with Edo, Tokyo...
From here, we introduce spot about Ibaraki in ward every times!
[the Edo era]
■Samurai residence
Samurai residence of Ibaraki (some Hitachi country, Shimousa countries) existed relatively a lot in ward.
Daimyo's mansion: Hitachi Asao feudal clan Shun Shinjo Komori direct Takeshi (3, Nihonbashihamacho)
Daimyo's second residence: jorikukasakanhammakiyabigoshu*choku (the Meijiza Theater area)
    Shimousa Furukawa feudal clan Oi Doi head Toshinori (Nihonbashihakozakicho, around the IBM Hakozaki Building)
■Company according to Kasama Inari Shrine Tokyo
Company (the God of Longevity) according to one Kasama Inari Shrine Tokyo of 7, Nihonbashi Fukugami in Nihonbashihamacho,
It is in the middle of the Edo era, and it is in Shinto shrine made branch shrine from Kasama Inari Shrine of one Ibaraki of Japan's three biggest Inari.

(Kasama Inari Shrine becoming the total head office. 2017 shooting.)
Chrysanthemum Festival is held in November and is full of many people every year.
It is easy to relatively access from Tokyo

Kasama Inari Shrine _ chrysanthemum. jpg

■Ishikawajima museum
1853 when Perry visited a shore.
Mito feudal clan Nariaki Tokugawa founded "Ishikawajima shipyard" in order to raise the armaments of Japan.
We started building of first Japanese Western style sailing warship "Xuri circle" here, and modern shipbuilding began.
At this museum in Tsukuda, we come to be able to know the history and culture of Tsukuda Island and shipyard today


[the Meiji era]
■Nihonbashi Bridge

Nihonbashi Bridge which it was built a bridge for the first time in 1603, and played a Japanese key role as the starting point of the Five Routes in the next year.
Two stone arched bridges which we crossed were completed now in 1911.
Bronze sculpture of giraffe and lion which architect Yorinaka Tsumaki designed is impressive,
In fact, unexpectedly there is Ibaraki element in this bridge!
Inada stone which we cut and brought down to pavement and arch part how from Inada, Ibaraki (Kasama-shi) is used more than running out of 40,000


Inada stone said to be "granite which is the whitest in Japan" is used even for the Supreme Court and Hibiya Dai-ichi Mutual Life Insurance Co. building and we are used for stone pavement of inside open space of finished JR Tokyo Station circle in last December and attract attention again recently.
In addition, we are used as obstacle of IBARAKI sense

(nothing of quarry of Inada stone in Kasama-shi. 2017 shooting. Instagenic)

◼️ medicine ancestral god company
Do you know this Shinto shrine right by forest of happiness and prosperity?
We worship pharmaceutical ancestral god Nikami as we can imagine from Shinto shrine name and are said to be when there is benefit of disease-free health, disease recovery.


Seemingly we seem to have nothing to do with Ibaraki, but, in fact, are the medicine industry of Nihonbashihoncho,
We visit in in front of in front of Oarai beach (isosaki) Shinto shrine of Ibaraki that assumes this Nikami enshrined deity from old days and liquor line beach (sakatsuraisosaki) Shinto shrines, and it is said that we showed sense of veneration.

Oarai Isosaki Shrine. jpg
(Oarai Isosaki Shrine in point that went up long stairs. 2017 shooting.)

There is torii of God beach in the nearby sea.
IBARAKI sense renewal was under construction, and this was introduced even poster put on glass.

(2017 shooting.)
We introduced a part of Ibaraki element seen in Chuo-ku after the Edo era to here, but how would about?
We are unexpectedly immediate and think that which we knew for the first time when there is Ibaraki element may come to place with familiarity so that it is representative by Nihonbashi Bridge
We are not only known still more, and there is a lot of charm of Ibaraki!
Please find spot where IBARAKI sense glitters while waiting in Chuo-ku, and doing walk
