April 14th is Orange Day. Along with this, it seems that a "mandarin orange train" with pictures of oranges of children entrusting the future is in operation. Orange Day is a memorial day that JA Zen-Noh Ehime registered with the Japan Anniversary Association as "a day to give oranges to foster love and deepen ties." For this anniversary and the promotion of citrus fruits, JA Zen-Noh Ehime will work with Iyo Railway Co., Ltd. (a major subsidiary of the Iyotetsu Group Co., Ltd.) from November to April, when Orange Day is held, from the 8th of each month. It seems that they are running a "mandarin orange train" decorated with pictures of oranges for one week only on the 14th. From February, the prize-winning works of the painting contest with the theme of mandarin oranges will be displayed on a monthly basis, and will run from April 8th to 14th. It is this Iyo Railway Company that Nobuchika has put the most effort into promoting the business. It seems that the society at that time had very little awareness of railway companies. At that time, the Kainan Shimbun said about the railway company plan, this plan is like fireworks, and although it should be truly pleased if you drive the railway, there is no expectation that it will continue for a long time as you see the fireworks, and the future of the company is jeopardized. It seems that it was a fireworks display. When it was difficult to raise funds for the establishment of the company and it seemed that the establishment of the company was up to this point, he succeeded in gaining the praise of Shiro FUJIMURA, who had been appointed as the governor of Ehime prefecture. It seems that Fujimura himself became a shareholder of 50 shares and showed a positive desire to establish a business. At that time, Denzaburo FUJITA, the president of Fujita group, who was a political entrepreneur, and the manager of the Besshi mine (closed in 1973), Hirose, who was in charge of mine management in Niihama, took over part of the stock. It seems that Denzaburo FUJITA was a person who attracted a lot of public attention. He was in the Fujita counterfeit bill case from 1878 to 1879, and he had been interrogated by the authorities as a suspect. The result was suspicious in this case, but on the other hand, the relationship with the officials became a problem, and it seems that he was a rumored person anyway. In any case, despite problems such as capital procurement, the Iyo Railway Company Founding General Assembly was held on September 14, 1887, and Nobuchika KOBAYASHI was selected as the first president. Business start between Matsuyama and Mitsu on October 28, 1888. Met. After that, the route will be expanded. Nobuchika is the introducer of modern transportation in the local community, and at the same time, he is also the creator of light railways in the history of japanese railways.

Reserve SDF personnel, etc., usually have their own main businesses such as office workers, self-employed people, and students, but in the event of an emergency, they are part-time special nations who take on duties as SDF personnel in response to defense convocations and disaster convocations. It's a civil servant. In the event of an emergency such as an emergency, great defense is required. However, it seems that it is not efficient to maintain that defense power on a regular basis. For this reason, we all know that we need a reserve defense force that can respond with the minimum necessary defense force normally and can quickly gather the necessary personnel in the event of an emergency. It is common knowledge in the world that many countries have adopted a system to rapidly increase their strength in the event of an emergency. In Japan, a system such as Conformance Reserve Self-Defense Official and Assistant Self-Defense Official has been established as equivalent to this. Regarding disaster response, we have implemented it seven times, including the Great East Japan Earthquake, and Convened Reserve Self-Defense Official and Reserve Self-Defense Official in addition to active SDF personnel, and have endeavored to maintain the national land in disaster relief activities. That's because every Japanese person listens. The Reserve Self-Defense Official Assistant is a system mainly for inexperienced SDF personnel. There are two courses, the qualifications for application are 18 to 34 years old for "general", 18 years old or older for "skills" that can utilize specific skills and qualifications, and 53 to 55 years old depending on the skill qualifications possessed. There seems to be an age limit. Qualifications covered by the skills course appear to include doctors, pharmacists, auto mechanics, system analysts, architects, as well as foreign language knowledge, skills and lawyers, and judicial scriveners.

The enlistment ceremony of the 110th Education Battalion of the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (Minamiumemoto Town, Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture) was held on April 6, 2022 at the Civic Center in Horinouchi, Ehime Prefecture. It seems that he has taken a step. After being hired, it is a new recruitment system that is appointed as a "SDF candidate" (special service national civil servant) and concentrates on the basic education and training necessary to become a SDF officer. Qualifications 18 to 33 years old However, it seems that those who are 32 years old are limited to those who have not reached the age of 33 as of the last day of the month following the day when they reach March from the first day of the scheduled hiring month. Reception period Throughout the year, reception examination subjects Written examination, oral examination, aptitude test, physical examination and career evaluation. Career assessment seems to be a comprehensive evaluation of the abilities of examinees with diverse backgrounds. After undergoing the required education as a SDF candidate, he will be appointed as a second-class land, sea, and airman (fixed-term SDF) in July, three months later. Fixed-term SDF personnel are 1 year and 9 months for land SDF personnel (2 years and 9 months for some technical systems) and 2 years and 9 months for maritime and aviation SDF personnel (2 years each after the second term). It seems to be a member who works as a member. It seems that they will be assigned to each unit / base after receiving education and training. Approximately nine months later, he will be promoted to first-class land, sea, and airman, and one year later, he will be promoted to land, sea, and airman. The main task of the Self-Defense Forces is to protect Japan's peace and independence. While maintaining a vigilance and surveillance system, the SDF's capabilities are enhanced through education and training to prevent various situations from occurring. In addition, we will maintain our readiness in case Japan is attacked by force. Japan is a country where natural disasters are likely to occur due to conditions such as topography, geology, and weather. In the event of a natural disaster, the Self-Defense Forces maintain a system to not only save lives but also restore and support livelihoods in any region of the country, and provide support that is close to the hearts of the victims. The international community faces global problems such as international terrorism and regional conflicts. In order to solve these problems and contribute to international peace, each SDF member is playing an active role in international peace cooperation activities. It goes without saying that the Ministry of Defense and the Self-Defense Forces are also one of the national administrative organs, and legal grounds are necessary to carry out various missions. The affairs under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense are stipulated in the Ministry of Defense Establishment Law, and Article 5 of the law stipulates that the duties, actions, and authority of the Self-Defense Forces shall be as stipulated by the Self-Defense Forces Law. It seems that the Self-Defense Forces Law stipulates what procedures the Self-Defense Forces can take in various situations, so to speak, in the form of an index. In addition, according to the provisions of Article 3 of the Self-Defense Forces Act, it seems that it can be divided into "main duties" (paragraphs 1 and 2 of the same article) and "subordinate duties" (paragraphs 1 and 2 of the same article). The defense operation to defend Japan falls under the "main mission", which is the only mission that the Self-Defense Forces can fulfill. It seems that the northern training ground (Horie citrus field) for new farmers in JA Ehime Chuo was a rough abandoned cultivated land until about 10 years ago. The land has been left unattended for many years, so even if you dig a well, no water will come out. It seems that the farming department irrigated all the water and planted seedlings. The deputy director of the farming department at the center of JA Ehime Chuo’s talking. This year, as an experimental initiative, he rented abandoned cultivated land and set up a field, and the following year, he started training for three new farmers. Ehime Prefecture is known for producing citrus fruits, especially iyokan (Citrus iyo) and dekopon (Citrus reticulata Siranui); sumo mandarin, and in recent years, varieties such as Beni Madonna Orange and Kara Mandarin Oranges have also become popular. The steep slopes that are common in Ehime Prefecture are ideal for cultivating citrus fruits that require sunlight and drainage, but they also seem to have been a factor in stopping farming for absent successors and elderly farmers. The JA is a wide-area JA that merged 12 JAs in the Chuyo district of Ehime prefecture (3 cities, 8 towns and 1 village) in April 1999. Due to the shortage of bearers, it seems that more than 100 ha of abandoned cultivated land was generated every year even after the merger. In order to start full-scale experimental efforts to support new farming in order to stop the expansion of abandoned cultivated land, we received approval from Ehime Prefecture as a certified training center for the youth farming benefit system, and started a new farming training center in April 2017. It seems that the area of ​​abandoned cultivated land in the jurisdiction that occurred in one year reached 160ha this year. It seems that management guidance must be put more effort than technical guidance when starting a new farm. In the case of agriculture, he is also a sole proprietor. In management analysis, management improvement method, and tax affairs, it seems that it is necessary to be able to file a blue declaration before starting farming. In 2018, it seems that the seminar is being held for the first time in collaboration with the prefecture, inviting tax accountants, former fruit tree test center officials, and distribution industry experts. However, the level was different depending on the trainees, and it seems that trial and error continued to improve the training menu. Meanwhile, JA Ehime Chuo has begun new attempts and challenges. Farmers in the jurisdiction, especially fruit tree farmers, have few corporate management, and the scale is not necessarily progressing. Therefore, it seems that the new farming training center started the corporate management course in 2018 in addition to the current general training course. It is a mechanism different from the general course for those who wish to start farming aiming for large-scale management, and it seems that they are planning to train them to become managers of agricultural corporations that can create local employment in the future. The Ehime Prefectural Government was established in 1873 and became the prefectural capital. Since the city system was enforced on December 15, 1889, it has grown as a political and economic center city, and has produced many writers including the poet Shiki MASAOKA. It seems that it has played a role as a cultural hub.  In 1945, most of the city was burned down by the war, but today it has comprehensive urban functions and moved to a core city in April 2000, and in January 2005 with Hojo City and Nakajima Town. Merged to become the first 500,000 cities in Shikoku.「忽那島開発記」及び「忽那氏系図」等 - 1084年(応徳元年), 藤原道長 公の曾孫, 親賢(ちかかた)公を忽那氏の祖としている. その家系を伝える「尊卑文脈」や「公卿補任」にも, その名を見ないが, 忽那氏を称した旨を記しているそうだ. ‘忽’は「忽ちに, 急に」そして,‘那’は「村」を表す. 南北朝時代に, 南朝方の将として, 忽那義範公が朝廷との縁深く登場. 1337年(延元2年)には, 後醍醐天皇第5皇子, 懐良(かねなが, かねよし)親王を征西将軍として忽那島(中島)に迎えた. 現在は, 柑橘農家がほとんどと聞いている. 城の台砦跡城館跡-中世, 河野様積石遺構墳墓-中世, 野忽那立場墳墓群墳墓-中世, 丸山古墳(市指定史跡), 梅の子島砦跡(市指定史跡)城館跡-中世, 梅の子遺跡-弥生 / 中世, 梅の子本城跡(市指定史跡)城館跡中世, 中島粟井坂遺跡-縄文 / 弥生, 吉木遺跡-弥生, 神浦神社遺跡-弥生, 宮野神社遺跡-弥生 / 古墳, 宮野権現山古墳-古墳, 小長師古墳-古墳, 大串遺跡-弥生 / 古墳, 大浦油田遺跡-弥生, 大浦さこの奥遺跡-弥生, 泰山堂山遺跡-弥生, 泰山城跡(市指定史跡)-中世, むかい山遺跡-縄文, 泊古墳跡-古墳, 熊田城の山遺跡-中世, 大串古墳群-古墳, 瀬木戸古墳-古墳, かがり山1号-古墳, かがり山2号-古墳, 中山古墳(市指定史跡), 五本松遺跡-古代, 宮浦西遺跡-弥生, 宮浦遺跡-古墳 / 中世, 竹の浦遺跡弥生, 竹の浦西遺跡-古墳, 泊遺跡-中世, 二神家墓地遺跡-中世, 二神城の山砦跡-中世, 由利島遺跡-弥生, 由利島大谷遺跡-中世, 由利島長者屋敷遺跡-中世, 御場ヶ嶽城跡-中世, 長師遺跡-古墳 / 中世, 九多児城跡(市指定史跡)-中世, 本山城跡(市指定史跡)-中世, 竹の上城跡-中世, 黒岩城跡-中世, 高木佐渡守館跡-中世, 旗山城跡-中世, 泊城跡-中世, 能磯砦跡-中世, 元怒和寺の下遺跡-弥生. “Nakajima(Oura, Awai ;Kutsuna seven islands), Matsuyama City”, Konoura (500 m east of Konoura Bay) - 神浦龍神社横 -Yoshinori Kutsuna公 表忠碑 - It is engraved with a tribute to Seichu during the Northern and Southern Dynasties.

The city has a warm Seto Inland Sea climate with an average annual temperature of 16.5 degrees Celsius. The annual rainfall is about 1,300 mm, and it seems that it is a summer rain type with a large amount in June and a small amount in December. Precipitation is low overall, snow cover is very small, and typhoons pass less than in Kochi and Tokushima prefectures on the Pacific side, resulting in mild and blessed climatic conditions. It extends from Nakajima in the northwestern Seto Inland Sea to the Dogo Plain formed by the Shigenobu and Ishite Rivers through the plains of the Takanawa Mountains. “Iyo City” : It is located in the center of Ehime prefecture. From the southwestern part of the Dogo Plain to part of the shikoku Mountains, the northwestern part faces the splendiferous Setonai Sea.

It is cherished as a tradition and a memorial, and as a tree that can appeal the originality of the city. Utilizing abundant nature and attractive local resources while promoting the rise of the primary industry(Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, Mining : By Dr. Colin Grant Clark.), which is the core industry. Born on April 1, 2005 by the merger of Iyo City, Nakayama Town and Futami Town. It prospered as a port town of the former Ozu clan, and has been blessed with food and climate. People in the county are said to be calm, bright and friendly, and acquaintances seem to be the same. It is said that there are still many townhouses built from the late Edo period to the early Showa period. Elegance centered around the Miyauchi family In the streets, there is nostalgia for the land of peace. “Iyo hot spring”, which is a natural hot spring, and “Goshikihama hot spring(I hear that it will be closed on December 30, 2016.)”, which is a salt bath. Legend has it that Heike(Taira family)'s princess threw herself into five color stones, Goshikihime-Kaihin-park. The town in the county along the coast is a flat land with few slopes. Historic sites of temples and shrines such as Eiyoji -Temple(The end temple of Chion-in : Pure Land sect (of Buddhism))and Daishido are scattered within 1.5 km in diameter. “Toon City” : Born on September 21, 2004 by the merger of Shigeobu Town and Kawauchi Town. Both towns were born in 1956, respectively. It seems that there is a City named in the eastern part of the vast hot spring district named after Dogo hot spring. Blessed natural environment and geographical conditions near Matsuyama City, the prefecture's capital. It seems that it continues to develop as a garden city near the city. The Shigenobu River(Basin area 445 km2. Shigeobu Park : A park that uses the riverbed and has been developed as a recreational plaza integrated with the river space.), which originates in the north, flows through 
the center of the city and is famous for its fertile land. Blessed with a waterside space full of moisture, rich in emotion. Saragamine Mountain Range Prefectural Natural Park(Southern): It is connected to the Reihou-Ishizuchisan system(Mt. Ishizuchi, which is the highest peak in western Japan and one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan, is the center. At an altitude of 1982 m, it extends about 50 km east to west along the prefectural border between Ehime and Kochi prefectures. Rich forests with a clear vertical distribution from warm temperate to subarctic shine. Inhabited by alpine plants and wildlife, including rare endemic species. It is said that there are more than 20 mountains with an altitude of 1,500 m or more.) in the eastern part and is blessed with rich nature and beauty of the valley. Since it has many mountainous areas, there are places where there is a lot of snow and places where there is relatively little snow, but the climate is generally calm. The Setonaikai-Sea region seems to be leeward against the northwest monsoon of winter and the southeast monsoon of summer. The weather tends to be mild, with less rain and weaker winds, as rain and snow are dropped on the windward side. The area of ​​the city is 211.3 km2. “Tobe Town, Iyo County” : Located in the center of the Prefecture, it is famous as a town with a fragrant culture and history. On January 1, 2005, Tobe Town and Hirota Village merged and were reborn. An area with strong cohesion in the living area and cultural area of ​​the inhabitants. Industry aspects such as agriculture and forestry are also common, and it seems that educational culture and inter-regional exchanges such as sports were actively carried out. The pottery stone used as the raw material for Tobe ware(The history of the production area goes back to the Asuka period. Even today, the remains of the Sue pottery kiln, which is said to date from the 6th to 7th centuries, remain. It was in the middle of the Edo period(1775 (Anei 4))that so-called pottery was made. As a sloping town surrounded by mountains, it seems that suitable clay will be produced. A large amount of Pinus densiflora Sieb. & Zucc., which is used as fuel, can be obtained from the surrounding mountains, and the slopes are said to be ideal for building a climbing kiln. The ozu clan, which was in a difficult financial situation due to poor crops due to drought and a fire at the Edo clan's residence, suggested a new industry : Development of porcelain using the scraps of Iyo whetstone, which is a special product. etc.)was collected at Hirota Village, and it is said that they have been interacting with each other for a long time. Coupled with the warm climate, we grow delicious mandarin oranges. Developed as a commuter town in Matsuyama City, the prefecture's capital. Prefectural "To be zoo" : One of the largest in western Japan. This month's idol animal is "Black Rhinoceros(Diceros bicornis (Linnaeus, 1758))Fu-chan”. The symbol of play and creativity, "Ehime Child's Castle," and the prefecture's general sports park are among the main attractions. In the south, you can see the mountainous areas with abundant forest resources and beautiful natural scenery. The Senba valley created by the flow of the Tamatani River running in the center and the source of pure water shine:Scenic spots such as Mt. Gongen, also known as Nishiishizuchi in Iyo : In early summer, the natural Luciola cruciata Motschulsky, 1854 dances along the river, and you can enjoy a fantastic world. Cultivation of highland vegetables and  Dioscorea japonica Thunb. (1784) that take advantage of natural conditions is flourishing.

It borders Masaki Town and Iyo City in the west, Kumakogen Town in the east, and Uchiko Town in the south. It is an elongated terrain 9 km east-west and 21 km north-south, with an area of ​​101.59 km2. The northern part is a basin-like terrain where the Tobe River, which flows into the Shigenobu River, flows through the central part. The altitude rises toward the south, and it becomes a mountainous area surrounded by high peaks such as Kitagamori (Mt. Utsubuki : 1010 m) and Sangou no Tsuji (937 m). Town  flower : Prunus mume (Sieb.) Sieb. et Zucc., It has been planted since the Edo period, and is now often found in the Nanaore district, where the plum garden is located. The annual Prunus mume Festival (February 20th to March 10th) is held. It is closely related to Tobe-ware(traditional crafts), and it seems that many kilns are still painting with plum blossoms as the theme. Town  tree : Quercus acutissima, It is a tree in the village of the former Hirota Village, and it is said that it grows naturally in Tobe Town. When charcoal production was flourishing, it was used as fuel. From around 1955, it is often used as a log of shiitake mushrooms, which is a product of the former Hirota village. Children are also popular because they drop acorns in the fall. I myself think of my childhood. “Masaki Town” : It is adjacent to Matsuyama City, the capital of the prefecture, with the Shigeobu River, which is a first-class river originating from the Ishizuchisan system, as a boundary.It is located in the southwestern part of the Dogo Plain. It faces the Sea of Iyo  in the west and Iyo City in the south, overlooking the Shikoku Mountains, and is blessed with abundant nature and land.

It has developed steadily as a town with a good balance of industry and commerce, including agriculture that makes use of abundant water and fertile land.Welfare, education, sewerage business, road maintenance business, etc. It seems that they will actively work on various measures that are directly related to the lives of the townspeople. City area 20.41 km2 East-west 6.9 km North-south 4.0 km Climate is Setouchi Region. The countryside spreads to the east, and agricultural products such as rice, wheat, lettuce, and green onions are cultivated. The west faces the Seto Inland Sea, and I hear that the production of delicacies made by processing small fish has been the best in Japan for a long time. From the Meiji era to the 1965's, a female fish hawker called "Otata-san(Women who peddled around the houses to Matsuyama with wooden tubs and colanders called “Gorobitsu(Chest)” on their heads. Around the Keicho era, Takihime(Princess Taki), the daughter of the monkey lord of Kyoto, was exiled and washed ashore from the port of Sakai, Senshu, to the beach in front of Iyo Masaki.)was active. In order to earn a living, he was told by local people to sell fish caught on the beach in Matsuki. "Otaki" changes to "Otata" : Town image character : 魚売婦. etc. “Uchiko Town, Kita District” : It is located in the central part of the prefecture. Born as a merger of Kita District (Uchiko / Ikazaki) and Kamiukena District (Oda) : 2005, 1/1. About 40 km southwest of Matsuyama City, the prefecture's capital. In the center is the Oda River, a tributary of the Hijikawa River, a first-class river that flows into the Seto Inland Sea. Although it is a mountainous area, it is famous as a calm and scenic area. The area is 299.50 km2, the area is 30.0 km from east to west, 17.9 km from north to south, and there is little flat land, and forests occupy 77%.

The annual rainfall is about 1,500 mm to 1,600 mm, which is an area suitable for cultivation.In deciduous fruit tree persimmons, chestnuts, grapes, pears, etc. Various varieties of vegetables, from leaves to root vegetables, are produced to entertain us. During the Edo period, the foundation was set up as a production center for Japanese paper and Japan wax, and it prospered from the Meiji to Taisho eras. Japan wax brought huge wealth by exporting overseas in the Meiji era, and it is said that luxurious private houses and storehouses were built. In 1982, the private houses(It is about 3.5 ha and is lined up along the town road about 600 m)were selected as an important traditional buildings preservation district of the country. It is said that the tertiary sector of industry is the mainstream, although it is based on Agriculture. etc. Nankai Broadcasting Company, Ltd. (Matsuyama City, Ehime Prefecture: a specified terrestrial backbone broadcasting company that has both a medium-wave broadcasting business and a television broadcasting business in Ehime Prefecture as a broadcasting target area) aims for mutual development. It has been announced that it will conclude an "Agreement on the transmission of agricultural product information using Nankai Broadcasting Radio (Efnan)" with JA Ehime Chuo on Thursday, December 9, 2021. Efnan Nankai Broadcasting Radio calls this agreement the "PAL Agreement". Efnan Nankai Broadcasting Radio, which means "friend" in Japanese, seems to be the third case in JA Ehime Chuo to conclude a PAL agreement with JA in Ehime prefecture. In addition, it is a nickname for the first studio of Nankai Broadcasting Headquarters, and it seems that it has the meaning of "agreement with friends". Based on the cooperation agreement, it seems that they will establish a mutual cooperation system and aim to disseminate information and expand exchanges. "Encore Orange" :(University of California, United States of America)In 1954, Dr. Frost and his colleagues and bred King Mandarin ≒ Willowleaf Mandarin(A kind of Kunenbo, a kind of peeling mandarin similar to Unshu Mandarin)and Mediterranean Mandarin. Approximately 11 years later, in 1965, Dr. Cameron and Dr. Sooost selected and announced. Introduced to Japan in 1969 by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries with scions. The deep red color is impressive, looks like the sun, and has a distinctive strong scent. It is useful as a high-class citrus fruit because of its rarity and rich sweetness. I hear that the cultivated area is still small. The fruits combine a rich sweetness with a luxurious aroma. “Willow Mandarin” ; It has been discovered and grown along the Mediterranean coast since the early 1800s. Mainly characteristic of both trees and fruits. The tree is medium in size, widespread and hanging. The leaves are thin and spear-shaped, reminiscent of ‘willow leaves; Salix alba L.’, and the scent stands out. The fruits are flat and contain a unique and fragrant oil. The flesh is pale orange, tender, juicy and sweet.When the fruit is past mature and retained in the tree, the acidity is reduced. It matures in winter, but the skin swells and the quality of the fruit deteriorates. Fruits seem to lose quality unless picked immediately. It is a slow-growing, widespread, hanging-growing tree. The branches are fine, with willows and almost no thorns. It is cold-resistant and resistant to adverse conditions, but has strong biennial bearings. This very characteristic mandarin has not been found in the Orient. It may have occurred on the Mediterranean coast and almost certainly in Italy. Imported from Malta Island to Egypt around 1830 and commercialized until 1840. It seems that it was brought to Algeria in 1850. In about a few decades, it has spread to the Mediterranean Basin and all countries in the Near East. Brought to USA by Consul ltaly of the City of New Orleans. It was planted on the grounds of the consulate between 1840 and 1850. Shortly thereafter, he was taken to Florida and then to California and elsewhere. It seems that the parent-child relationship and origin of this fruit are unknown. Incontrovertible that may have arisen as an accidental seedling from a variety or form of Chinese origin. Its high beet requirements, tolerance, and the fact that the fruits are well shaded : It adapts to the hot and dry climate that characterizes the Mediterranean coast and the Near East. The encore is that the audience wants to re-perform with applause and shouts after the performers and singers finish as scheduled and leave. It also means a performance or song performed in response to it. Or rebroadcast or re-perform. The etymology is French, meaning again, once again?

This excellent citrus was selected and announced by Dr. Cameron and Dr. Susto, and is said to have been introduced in 1965. It was introduced to Japan in 1969 by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries as a scion. Most of them are cultivated in greenhouses, and the main production areas in Japan are Ehime and Oita prefectures, and the season is from March to April. The cultivated area is small and the rare value is high.

This variety is cultivated in a green house because it is difficult to control the temperature and it is easily damaged by rain and wind. Therefore, it is not widely used, and the fact is that there are almost no department stores or specialty stores. It is a valuable and excellent variety, but once you eat it, you will be convinced by the impressive taste and aroma that wraps everything.

Every year, April 14th is "Orange Day".  Anniversary to give oranges to each other as a symbol of love. "Orange Day" is the anniversary of the couple following "Valentine's Day" on February 14th and "White Day" on March 14th. It is said that a citrus farmer in Ehime Prefecture came up with the idea in 1994 as a day to confirm each other's affection. In May 2009, we donated orange, which is a symbol of love, to nurture love.
JA Zen-Noh Ehime is registered with the Japan Anniversary Association as a memorial day to deepen ties with loved ones.
