2018 New Year’s visit to “Tosa Inari” nearby! A shrine famous for the site of Yataro Iwasaki’s Tosa Shokai.
New Year’s visit, Tosa Inari with few people.
This year, my family and I will visit nearby Tosa Inari Shrine for the New Year. There are few people like every year! Lucky. Before going here, I actually went to “Samhara Shrine”… but it’s very popular. Full of people! So this is Tosa Inari. Last year I was alone at Tosa Inari.
Tosa Inari is the birthplace of Yataro Iwasaki and Mitsubishi.
As the name suggests, this Tosa Inari shrine was originally owned by the Tosa clan, and was later purchased by Yataro Iwasaki, the founder of Mitsubishi. However, Yataro rebuilt the shrine building and was ranked as a village shrine. Completely remnants of that, the Mitsubishi mark is included.
Until recently, Nagahori-dori was a river.
This area is at the intersection of Nagahori-dori and New Niwa-suji, and originally this east-west Nagahori-dori was a river. Until very recently, I think it was about 40 years ago, and there were originally many lumber shops in the area. Recently, I think that he has moved from lumber management to real estate business such as condominiums, parking lot management, and tenants, but after all, it was a time when shipping companies like Mitsubishi were popular, so he understands the circumstances well. If you go a little further north, there is Nakanoshima Park. It’s a very accessible area.
The prayer for becoming rich is Tosa Inari.
So, the prayer for becoming rich is Tosa Inari, and there are many merchants in this area, so I feel like it’s even more so… However, in fact, Iwasaki is well-known for its famous shipping company, but I heard that it didn’t make money from ships, but from denominations. I heard that the assets at that time became Mitsubishi’s resources because the profits from buying a large amount of old coins and buying them into new coins were enormous.
Perhaps Shojiro Goto of Tosa was in the new government, so I think he’s an insider in that area, but that’s good.
The number of students at Horie Elementary School has increased abnormally.
That’s why there are many towers in the area due to the recent “tower apartment” boom. As a result, the population increased, especially the number of children, and the number of classes doubled. At the nearby Horie Elementary School, there were 3 classes per grade, but now there are 5 classes. Also, I heard that the number of classes will increase soon, but it seems that there will be about 8 classes. Not great.
