Yayoi-Kofun periodA powerful kingship is generated in Izumo during the period (Ancient Izumo(See), there is a theory that it was the center (eastern Izumo dynasty).It is one of the largest burial mounds in JapanZouzan KofunUnique to groups and Izumo cultural areasFour-corner protruding mound graveMany ancient burial mounds have been excavated, including (one of the largest concentrated areas in Japan), and it has prospered continuously for about 500 years from Yayoi to the Kofun period.At the timeIzumo TheChikushi,Yamato,KenoIn the latter half of Yayoi, there was a coalition government standardized in the form of a four-corner protruding burial mound on the coast of the Sea of ​​Japan extending to Hokuriku.There is a theory that he and Yamato once formed an independent dynasty under the guidance of pride in their outstanding power.

In Sanin, the amount of ironware has been excavated in the same amount as Kitakyushu, and even in Yayoi period, the remains of iron making in the Yayoi period were found at the Takegasaki and Yanagi sites, so these irons were supplied to the Yamato region, which was iron deficient at that time. There is a theory that it became the driving force for the founding of the Yamato court.In fact, the pre-modern field has been recognized as an iron-making site since the Yayoi period.

Perhaps because of that, it appeared in "Kiki" from an early stage, and "Record of Ancient Matters], [Japanese calligraphyInNe-no-kuni(Nenokatasukuni) or Ne-no-kuni (Yamato Shimane,Shimane It is said to be the etymology ofIzanami MikotoThere is also a place that is said to be the sacred tomb of the shrine, so some people view it as the source of repair and consolidation.YomiSee country. ) CalledSusanooomikotoIt is said that it may correspond to the region that was governed by the city, and there are many old shrines in the city that follow the flow of the city.The place name appeared in the literature in the 6th year of Tenpyo (733 AD).Izumo country style soil record], "Izumo Province, Ou District, Anrai Township".Probably the name from the gods, it belongs to the oldest category of city names.In the mountains of Yasugi from that timeFunatoyamaOriginating from the surrounding areaOrochi riversIn the vicinity ofTatara blow(Tatara = Tatara, Bellows, Bellows, Bellows),Tatara steelmakingBecause the ancient iron making method called was popular, Susano Onomikoto'sYamatano OrochiIt is said that a legend was born.After this Yamata no Orochi was exterminated and buried, the tradition of planting XNUMX cedars is adjacent.Okuizumo,Yunnan,TottoriHino-gunAlthough it remains in the surrounding areas of the Orochi rivers such as, there is a theory that this Yasugi is the etymology of Yasugi.Therefore, there are dozens or more (Hakuta Town, Hirose Town) in the city alone, and in the ruins of Tatara Ironworks and the surrounding areas.Japanese swordThe oldest swordsmith ofMusashi MiyamotoLove sword "Boy cutIs the author ofHokokuOhara安綱Workshop ruins (TottoriSaihaku-gun), And the neighboring Hoki Kuni Ohara is the place where Yasutsuna played an active part, so it was the central city of the Unpaku region (former name; Ou-gun, Nogi-gun) where metallurgy technology had been developed for a long time. I can see that.From such a background, the movie "Princess MononokeIt also became a model for the stage.

Since ancient timesNakaumiYasugi Port, a good natural port facing (Nakaumi)Korean PeninsulaTrade with is also active, "Manyoshu], It appears under the names of Oho no Ura, Kanegaura, and Nishikigaura as the times go by.Therefore, it is rare for the Izumo region at that time from the many ancient burial mounds in the city.Tenso cloud swordIron swords and ironware have been excavated.Therefore, there is a legend that the gods aiming for Izumo first gather in Yasugi Minato to buy iron in Kannazuki, and it can be seen that it was reflected as the gateway to the sea of ​​ancient Izumo.Sengoku periodTo reachAmakoAmago clan, who is also a base for transporting goods and naval battles in the Chugoku regionMr. Ouchi-Mr. Mouri OfFierce battleWas unfolded.The famous misfortune warrior in thisYukimori YamanakaThe spirit of Bushido, which can be said to be an example of their successShotaro IkenamiIt is the subject of numerous novels and stories such as the book "Eminence Grise".Edo periodWhen entering, Amago and Mori ranMt. Gassan Tomita CastleからMatsue CastleThe center of Izumo rule moved to Izumo, and there was a temporary delay in prosperity.

However, from the middle of the Edo period, Japan's commodity economy developed and trade by Kitamaebune became active, and in the steelmaking area that moved to the Okuizumo side in search of iron resources, the mass production type eternal generation from the conventional field tatara method. Move to tatara.And Yasugi Minato became an important port in the Sanin area和鉄-和鋼It has grown into a major commercial city that handles all of its products.At that time, it was extremely prosperous by handling the manufacture and distribution of raw iron and steel products, which accounted for more than 90% of the domestic iron production.

Meiji EraIn the second half, the tatara ironmaking process faces a crisis of decline.Tatara masters established Japan's first private steel company "Unhaku Steel Joint Stock Company" in 1899 (Meiji 32) (there is a theory that it is different from the steel industry and is defined as the origin of the modern steel industry). ..After that, the company went through Yasuki Steel Joint Stock Company (established in 1909) and Yasuki Steel Co., Ltd. (established in 1916), and then introduced modern technology by Nissan Konzern General Manager Yoshisuke Aikawa. Specializing in special steel, it still exists as a steel capital.The steel produced hereYasuki SteelWith the brand nameHitachi MetalsCo., Ltd. continues to manufacture and is one of Japan's leading steel development bases.
