Let’s skim reading a 10-minute video, which teaches us history of the localculture and tourism! in Nirasaki, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan.
We would like to introduce uniquely the circumstances that a great achievement by great minds is inherited to the present day.
This time, we have directed a spot right on “Mrs. Uta Ito”, a great mind in Nirasaki, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan.
Education for women in Japan was behind before World War II. Under this kind of historical background, Mrs. Ito was thinking about the independence of women. Mrs. Ito considered if women have sewing skills, they are able to overcome any financial difficulties and to be independent in any occasions. Her strong desire for change led to a very real commitment to action. She established Yamanashi sewing school, which was expanded to Yuda High School and KAI SEIKA High school later on.
Mrs. Ito’s students took the remains of Mrs. Ito to her hometown, Anayama cho, in Nirasaki city. The area of her tomb is called “Anayama cho Itokubo”, where her descendants have been living. We would like to show you how they are living.
The Anayama hot spring is noted for its Japanese garden and also commanding full view of surrounding mountain ranges,and provides the guests with the seasonalmenu , such as cooked bamboo shoot and other edible wild plants collected from the neighboring mountain fields.
The late Mr.Kyuya Fukada,the famous mountaineer and author of his masterpiece "Hundred of famous mountains in Japan", also stayed at Anayam and enjoyed the super on the eve of his last climbing Mt.Kaya.
