The long week of the new school year is coming to an end. Here's a little reflection of March. [Implementation of study tour by junior high and high school students @ Tomi City] 3/23 (Sat) - 26 (Tue) As part of the Ueda-Tomi Study Tour, members of the Social Action Team of the Volunteer Department of International Secondary School attached to Tokyo Gakugei University visited Tomi City! While continuing the relationship with Ueda, this time the field was expanded to Tomi, and 14 junior high and high school students experienced Tomi for the first time (Tomi was on the 1st day of 3/25). We actually visit the area, interacted with local people, and worked on a study tour to think about local issues together from the perspective of junior high and high school students. Tomi's theme is "How can people gather in Tomi?" (It's huge!) Because this was my first time in Tomi, I dared to ask them to grasp the charm of Tomi from multiple perspectives without being bound by the perspective of tourism. [Local people who cooperated this time] ⚪︎Cave Hatano Hatano-san ⚪︎SASAKI FARM 佐々木さん ⚪︎ Kodama Family Residence & Cafe Nei Kodama's family ⚪︎Unno Yado Kamishuya Asakawa-san * SASAKI FARM was specially accepted for training. Please note that it is not a tourist ranch. The junior high and high school students fell in love with the land of Tomi itself, and while touching the enthusiasm of Adults who took on the challenge of realizing their commitments and desires, they enthusiastically asked specific and Unfolding questions. Although it was only one day, I was very impressed by the way they tried to get to know Tomi deeply. At the end, the "charm of Tomi" that everyone felt at the Unno Yado Fureai Center was output in a short time. From the moment you unfold the imitation paper, the pen moves all at once! Impression by the enthusiasm of the junior high and high school students. I'm looking forward to the reports that will be compiled in the future. Tomi, like Ueda, I can't help but think that we can build a Gari with continuity.

Kitakuni Highway "Unno Yado" The townscape of Unno Yado is a traditional style of houses in harmony with the thatched-roof buildings of the Edo period and the robust silkworm buildings of the Meiji era and later. The irrigation water streams in the center of the road and the beautiful houses with lattice doors on both sides of it make you feel a quiet atmosphere reminiscent of a historical hometown. History of Unno Yado Unno Yado was opened in the 2nd year of Kanei (1625) as a inn station in Kitakuni Highway. The Kitakuni Highway is an important highway connecting the Nakasendo Highway and the Hokuriku Expressway. In addition to the transportation of gold mined in Sado and the change of attendance of the daimyo of Hokuriku, there was also frequent traffic with Edo, and there were many pilgrims to Zenkoji. After the adjacent Tanaka inn was damaged by the great flood in Kanho 2 and the main camp was moved to Unno Yado, it was very busy, with 59 denma houses and 23 hatago. After the Shukuba-juku function was lost in the Meiji era, it moved to a sericulture village. Since the traditional houses of Unno Yado have been preserved to this day, it was selected as one of the "100 Best Roads in Japan" in 1986 (Showa 61) and as an "Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings" in 62. ⭐︎Highlights ⭐of this photo︎  In the Edo period inn-style building, the second floor is more protruding than the first floor. It is said that it is a consideration so that travelers do not get wet when getting ready on rainy days.

Speaking of famous warlords of the Sanada clan, "Sanada Yukimura (Sanada Nobushige)" (Sanada Yukimura), who played an active role in chasing down "Tokugawa Ieyasu" in the "Osaka Natsujin" in 1615 (Keicho 20), and "Sanada Masayuki" (Sanada Masayuki), who defeated Tokugawa Ieyasu's large army twice, are famous. In addition, as a conspiracy general of "Takeda Shingen" (bosho: a general who excelled in strategy), "Sanada Yukitaka" (Sanada Yukitaka), who was said to be inferior to Takeda Shingen, can be mentioned. Prior to the establishment of the Shukuba town, Unno Yado was called "Unno-go" or "Umino-sho" and was the birthplace of the Umino clan, a branch of the Shigeno clan of Shinshu, which is said to be the root of the Sanada clan, from Heian to Kamakura and the Sengoku period. ⭐︎Key points ⭐of this photo︎ This is the current state of the main team. When you open the gate, you will be greeted by a magnificent tree. In addition, one of Sanada Yukimura's entourage, "Umino Rokuro" (Unnorokuro), whose name also appears in the creative vassal group "Sanada Ten Brave Warriors" (Sanada Ju Yuushi), is also said to have been from this area. In 1583 (Tensho 11), Masayuki Sanada moved the shrine and town from Umino to Ueda when he built "Ueda Castle" (Ueda City, Nagano Prefecture). After that, the village was reduced and Unno Yado was established as an "inn station on the snow country highway".

The irrigation water streams in the center of the road and the beautiful houses with lattice doors lining both sides of the road give you a quiet appearance reminiscent of a historical hometown. ⭐︎Key points ⭐of this photo︎ The lattice on the second floor is called "Umino lattice" and is from the Edo period. On top of the roof, there is a small roof. This is called "unpretentiousness" and is a symbol of the construction of silkworms in the Meiji era. After it was no longer used as a travel basket, it was built to emit smoke from a fire that was burned to keep warm when the guest room was used as a silkworm room. It is a feature that tells the story of the transition from Shukuba-juku to sericulture. Details of Unno Yado: The Unno Yado was opened in 1625 as a inn station in Kitakuni Highway. The Kitakuni Highway is an important highway connecting the Nakasendo and Hokuriku Highways, and in addition to transporting gold mined in Sado and changing the attendance of various feudal lords in Hokuriku, there was frequent traffic to and from Edo, and many visitors visited Zenkoji Temple.
