The Tsugaru region, which was ruled by Mr. Nambu during the Warring States period, was recognized as Hideyoshi by Odawara's early arrival team of Oura (Tsugaru) Teishin (Ourare Nobu), and was no longer a territory of Mr. Nami. As a result, Ijo Sanko (Mino's To, Aomori Pref. Sannocho) will be concentrated to the north of the territory, and will be at a geographically inappropriate position as a government office. So the southern part of the Nobuna, after Kunoge Masami's revolt, changed its home castle, Kuto Castle (Ninohe city), renamed Fukuoka Castle. In addition, there is a recommendation of Gyu-Ushi-Sato (Gaugo Ujisato) and Asano Nagamasa (A-Na-Na-Gasa), and it is decided to let the castle go southward to Iwao-gun Hitoh (Nishou-go). To do. It is the birth of the new city "Morioka".
The reason why Morioka was chosen is (1) that it was a key point of transportation that water transportation of the Kitakami River can use, (2) Shibutan (Sibutabami, Morioka city) of the north and Numamiyai (not stupid, Iwate town) These include the fact that it was along the highway that reaches Kuchinohe Castle via, etc., and (3) that it was a natural disaster that consisted of the granite (kaganan) plateau surrounded by the Kitakami River and the Nakatsu River.

Nobunao received permission from Hideyoshi in the year of Bungomoto (1592) and started land preparation work. Although there are various theories for the start of the castle construction, the Keicho 3 (1598) year theory seems to be appropriate. The actual command of the construction was hit by Nobunaga's Keiko Toshinao, often interrupted by Hideyoshi in Keisen 3 (1598) and the death of Shinonori in the next Keicho 4 (1599). The middle of the year (1596 to 1615) seems to have completed once in a while. After that, however, it was frequently damaged by floods, and it was officially designated as a castle when Kanei 10 (1633) returned to Japan after the third generation lord Shinoshi. It actually took 36 years.
Around the time of the castle construction, the town planning also began. The town under the castle had a policy of making it a "five-letter" street. More than 500 stone senior warriors in the first zone centered on the castle, merchants and craftsmen in the second zone, general warriors less than 500 stones in the third zone, footlights along the highway from the castle to the villages (concentric ) Was put. Ueda-gumi-cho and Senboku-gumi-cho are here. Furthermore, from the point of view of defense, relocation and construction of shrines and temples were carried out at the foot of the castle northeast.
In Kashiwa-cho, Shimokoji (near Shikoji and Ehime-cho) and Kamishu (Kamishu) Koji (near Baba-cho) are first made, and then, after the renovation work on Kitakami River, Osawa Kawahara (Oosawa Kawawara / Osawagawara) In the vicinity of 3-chome), Hashiko-koji (hirayama) and Hirayama-koji (near Chuo-dori 3-chome) were born.
The townspeople are born with the name of the merchant's birthplace. With the beginning of "Mino-cho (nsancho · Honcho 3-chome)", a townman who came from Sanyo, "Senhoku-cho (near Senhoku 1-chome)" of a towner who came from Senboku-gun, Akita Prefecture, etc. , "Morioka twenty-three town" was established in the year of Keian 4 (1651).

In addition, I was also responsible for taking small fish to be eaten by the crane I have kept.
Ashiya town is the first road to get into Morioka for people who come from Miyako, Kamaishi, Oyama, and so on, so there are lots of small and large shops that can do various shopping here was there.
