中 世

The manor, the kitchen, and the national territory were established, and the small and medium samurai corps rose on the basis of it. In the eastern part of the prefecture Oura, Nitta, Sasa county and Tone and Azuma county in the north, and Usui and Tago county in the west, the county area becomes a manor, while almost all of Gunma county and Kanraku county are Shibukawa-go (ho).・Momoi, Shirai, Nagano, Wada, and Okamoto were established. The others are mixed. For this reason, the origin of the samurai team tends to be local.

First, from the northern part of the prefecture to the eastern part, Shugo-ryu Fujiwara (Saran, Nawa, Hayashi, Sonoda, Ogo, Yamagami) entered, and then the Nitta family in the eastern part (Nitta main family, Satomi, Yamana, Tokugawa, Serada, and Iwamatsu) have entered and expanded. In the southern part of the prefecture, the Chichibu party system (Obata, Akuma, Kobayashi) entered from Musashi. Tako-gun was developed by Minamoto Ken as a manor, and was later based on Mr. Tago. On the other hand, in Gunma-gun and Kanraku-gun, where most of the country's territory is located, various people (such as Shibukawa/Momoi/Nagano/Wada/Okamoto) who are supposed to be in the royal court have risen.

These samurai groups, except the Nitta clan,中 世Lost its power in the turmoil of.

Adjacent to Ashikaga, Mr. Shugo-ryu Fujiwara's Solitary, Fujiwara surname Ashikaga was on the Heike side. On the other hand, the family of Mr. Hidego Fujiwara, Mr. Nitta's branch (Satomi, Yamana) and many samurai followed Minamoto no Yoritomo. After that, as a result of finally winning the Minamoto no Yoritomo,Minamoto YoshinakaAttached toMr. Imai・Mr. Sani, Mr. Nami, Mr. Momoi, and Mr. Fujiwara, who has joined the Heike family, Ashikaga, have fallen and Yoshishige Nitta has also declined.

After the lord of the territory was destroyed, a new lord came in and named himself a clan of the same name. Fujinami Surname Namba The former territory included Mr. Nawa of the Oe family, and Mr. Shibukawa and Mr. Momoi belonged to the family of Mr. Ashikaga.

At the end of Kamakura,Nitta Yoshisada Takashi Ashikagaと と も にEmperor Godaigo OfKamakura ShogunateParticipate in the campaign,Kenmu's new governmentAlso participated in[36].. However, Mr. Nitta, who lost the power of the Soryo family, is not united as a family, and Mr. Satomi and Mr. Yamana are following Mr. Takashi Ashikaga. There were also samurai groups (Mr. Shirai, Mr. Ogo, and Mr. Yamagami) attached to the Shogunate side. After the death of Yoshisada Nitta, the Nitta family, Mr. Serada, who died in the South Dynasties fell down, Mr. Satomi and Mr. Yamana moved their headquarters to the outside of the prefecture, and Mr. Iwamatsu who newly inherited Soroshi Nitta about Ashikaga centered on Nittaso. Maintained power. On the other hand, when the Kamakura Shogunate was destroyed, Mr. Shirai and Kan went down due to the turbulence of Kanoh, and Mr. Yamagami moved from the Shogunate side to Takashi during the turmoil. .. Mr. Shugo Ryu Fujiwara, who has many families, was not organized due to the extinction of the Soryo family (Mr. Ashikaga Fujiwara). After the turbulence of Kanoh, except for Mr. Iwamatsu, the Samurai warriors of Joshu who participated in the white flag of Joshu, entered as guardian.Yamauchi Uesugi FamilyBecame an inmate. However, even after being inhabited as a "population," the form remains, and dismantling will wait for the appearance of the Sengoku Daimyo.

However, some people near Saku-gun, Shinano Province belong to Mr. Takeda, who advanced to the area.

In Echigo country, unification by the guardian representative Nagao was progressing, but the Yamauchi Uesugi family relied on Nagao, and Keio Nagao (Kennobu Uesugi) succeeded the family administration of the Yamauchi Uesugi family and the Kanto administration, and with Takeda in Kita Shinano.

While Yamauchi Uesugi, Gohojo, Takeda, and Nagao Uesugi competed in this way, the native samurai from around Kamakura were completely destroyed, and the new samurai who became a vassal of the Sengoku Daimyo came to Joshu in modern times. I said it as a territory.

The early modern period

Edo PeriodIn the early days, mainly as a defense of the north of the eastFutami DaimyoIs located in Joshu,Maebashi Domain,Takasaki Domain,Numata Domain,Tatebayashi Clan,Annaka clan,Obata Domain,Isesaki Domain,Yoshii Domain,Nanukaichi ClanAnd so on,ReplacementThere was Iwamatsu Jinya of Mr. Iwamatsu (Nitta) in Hatamoto. AlsoIwahanaControl the territory of the Ueno domestic governmentDeputy official OfJinya() was placed.

Since the Edo periodShowaEarly on,Kiryu OriIs the core industry of that timeSilk fabricBecame the center of production[37].. The main reason why Joshu women are cheerful without being subordinate to the subordinate position in the domestic society is that the silk sericulture industry earns a lot of income even for women.

This is a skill that is not affected by aging. This is the so-called "kaka-tenka and empty breeze."[38]"Kakaa Tenka" is often taken as "a man (husband) who doesn't look up to a woman (wife)" or "a husband who is laid on his wife's hips", but a man from Joshu is his wife. In the sense that we appreciate and respectMy mother is KaichiHas the meaning.

SericultureBecause of the primitive but complicated process, there are many social events in Gunma Prefecture (including the northern part of Saitama Prefecture in the Saibu area) that originated in the sericulture industry. It is a treasure trove of materials with excellent folklore and is highly evaluated. The subject of sericulture is often overwhelmed by the fact that it often becomes the subject of photographic art. Naturally, the sericulture and silk industry is promoting technological development in manufacturing engineering.Taisho eraBecame the largest airline company in JapanNakajima airplaneWas established.

There is almost no damage due to machine gun sweep only). After the war, the agricultural and industrial manufacturing industries in the plains were revived, but as a good example of diversion of technology to entertainment consumers, the production and sale of amusement machines (pachinko machines and pachislot machines) are active. The genealogy of the manufacturing industry is uninterrupted, and so is the participation of women in society. The number of privately-owned passenger cars owned by each household in the prefecture is competing for the top position in the whole country. Many statistics show that each family has passenger cars for parents and children, as well as passenger cars for women engaged in certain tasks.

In addition, he is loyal to the procedure of modern conservative politics, in which a leading member of the parliament is repeatedly elected and nominated as the leader.After the warToFukuda Yoshio(Takasaki City),Yasuhiro Nakasone(Takasaki City),Keizo Obuchi(Nakanojo Town),Fukuda Yasuo(Takasaki) And four ofPrime ministerIs producing.
