The shrine "Chokuro Inari" is
located on the heights in Nagasaki, Choshi-shi.
Chokuro Inari was built about 350 years ago by
fisherman called Chokuro. Chokuro came to Choshi from Wakayama Prefecture together with JiroemonSakiyama which built Tokawa's town and harbor. Tokawa's people
were calling it " Chokuro Inari". Once upon a time, Chokuro
Inari was devastated Inari. However, Tokawa's people
contributed money in 2,002 and made shrine pavilions new.
The torii of the
entrance of a shrine is golden. I have not seen golden torii once.
The torii in front
of a main shrine is red, and the Pacific saury and
the sardine are drawn. In Tokawa's harbor, many
caught a long time ago. The shrine hoped to take a sardine again
and was newly built by Tokawa's people.
The Pacific Ocean can be seen from Chokuro Inari. In addition,
Mt. Fuji can be seen on a fine
day. There is Chokuro Inari about
100 m ahead from
the "Nagasaki en" north side.
The Pacific Ocean from Chokuro
Inari is a very beautiful view. If standing it on Chokuro Inari, you
can understand that Tokawa is open sea. The front is the Tokawa
harbor. And a left hand side is a town in Nagasaki.
town in Nagasaki
The town in Nagasaki is the colony opened in
the east in Inubo-saki. Nagasaki is the land which
less than 1 meter from marine height. Therefore, the town has prevented tsunami on
the bank. In addition, since the wind from the sea is very strong, the stone
was stacked and the wind has been prevented. The town in Choshi
Nagasaki is located in the easternmost end of the Choshi
peninsula. It is the town made from Tokawa's town on
the seashore which went down the hill. The town in Nagasaki is surrounded on the high bank. It is for
protecting a town from tsunami and high tide.
addition, the houses of Nagasaki were also enclosed with the stone wall which
prevents a strong sea breeze. However, now, the stone wall is also being lost.
That is because the necessity was lost in a strong new residence.

sardine could catch a Tokawa harbor in Choshi.However, a
sardine can't be caught like the past now. Moreover a harbor has been broken in
tsunami of a big earthquake of 3.11. Fishermen
of my home town are hoping to become an old Tokawa
harbor. Choukurou shrine is built in a hill in Hiyoriyama in Choshi-shiTakagami. It's possible to see Mt. Fuji in the other side
of the Pacific horizon from a hill in Hiyoriyama.
A digest of the good seafood I
introduced in the senior English conversation classroom.

My nostalgic dish. The
sardine dumpling is very good. However, a sardine dumpling is children's very
healthy meal. I suggest to everyone for children's growth.

is much seaweed in a beach in Tokawa.Soy sauce is made from Hisio.Hisio
is made with soybeans, wheat, koji and salt.
