Food science,AnthropologyIn general, Japanese miso isSoy sauceAs well asSoy sauceOut of (Hishio/Jean)Grain sauceIt is classified as (Kokusho). General miso is unique to Japan,East Asia,Southeast AsiaBecause of its similarity, soybean paste, which is a paste-like fermented seasoning made from soybeans and other beans and grains existing in various parts of Japan, may be included in miso. For example, in ChinaPea soy sauce, South Korea OfGochujangOften in JapanChili misoAnd so on.

The main raw material is soybeans, but there are many different types due to differences in grains and koji.

Reference value of the nutritional value of miso

The actual nutritional value is a reference value because it varies depending on many factors such as the growing environment of the raw material soybean, the variety, the strains participating in fermentation, and the amount of auxiliary material added.

Miso contains the following ingredients[6].



There are two theories about the origin of miso[7].

  • Chinese tradition
    Ancient chineseSoy sauceIs the rootEnvoyThe theory that it is said that it came through China by[8].
The etymology also changed from unsoy sauce, which means "things that have not yet become soy sauce," to miso, miso, and miso in the Heian period.
In the 701 Taiho Ritsu, unsoy sauce appears as a taxable object, and there is also a description of the title of "main soy sauce" that manages soy sauce.[7].
  • Japan's original theory
    The prototype of Japanese miso has a long historyYayoi PeriodThere is a theory that it is different from the current miso that uses beans, but it is similar to fish sauce[9]. In JapanJomon PeriodからSalt makingIt is believed that salted foods such as soy sauce were made. From the late Jomon periodYayoi PeriodTraces of salted grains were found from the ruins[7].Kofun periodFrom now on, the technology of koji fermentation is added.
The first thing that goes on to the origin of the current misoNara periodIs. There is a record of a food called "Misau" (Misau / Misho: meaning soybeans with beans still remaining) in the literature at that time. It is also written as "Suesho" and "Great treasure"(Great treasureNew Year (701 ))of"DaizenIn the article, it is written as "Suesho". You can already see the characters of miso and miso.Kyo FujiwaraFrom the ruins (around 700 years)DormitoryAssuming that (the government office in charge of breeding official horses, etc.) requested soy sauce and soy sauce from the food official, the front is "Shokei Imamata Useful Jiàng" and the back is "Oisue Soy Sauce. A wooden tablet with the words "Moryo" has been excavated.[10].. It is said that this unsoy sauce or soy sauce changed to miso, miso, and miso.Japanese name"(Around 934) and"Dust bag"(Around 1264-1287) is written in the dictionary. Miso at this time was preserved with beans and other grains, rather than seasoning.Preserved FoodsIt was picked up and eaten.Natural grassIt is in,Hojo TokiyoriHojo NobutokiHowever, the anecdote that only the miso left in the kitchen was used as a side dish to drink sake is due to this historical background. As a seasoning made from soybeans, at that timeSalted nattoWas mainly used.

Muromachi Period

Muromachi PeriodAt that time, miso developed in various places.Sengoku periodMainly toBranWas used as a raw material,Military resources(Food), Which is useful as a processed productPotato ropeIt was a valuable source of nutrition for soldiers, including[11].. The remnants areMagnolia misoIt is also transmitted as such. Each placeSengoku warlordMiso making has come to be seen as one of the important economic policies.

Edo Period

A variety of miso was produced with different material ratios and different aging methods, reflecting the climate and climate of each region.

Meiji Era

Meiji EraTypical miso brewing period was about 1-3 years. The Japanese dictionary of the Meiji era, "Sea of ​​words] Lists the following three types of miso. According to the description, the beans and koji of the material were different between red miso and white miso at that time.

  • White miso-Peel the beans and make them with white jiuqu. The color is white and sweet.
  • Red miso-made from white soybeans. The color is red.
  • Tama miso-Do not crush the beans with a mortar, chop them with a kitchen knife, wrap them in straw and let them age. It was said to be inferior.

Steamed or boiled soybeans are crushed into dumplings, wrapped in straw and hung as miso balls under the eaves, and then aged with Bacillus subtilis, natto bacterium and mold, and then mixed with salt water. But it remains in various parts of the region. Also, the method of making miso balls and preparing miso is on the Korean Peninsula.DoenjangSee also in. Already in the Edo periodBook breakfast book"There is something called Tamami miso. Boiled soybeans are half-boiled and crushed with a kitchen knife to make them coarse and fine. Connect this to the bottom of the eaves and use it over the years. This is a low quality product. Or use boiled soybeans and mix it with koji and salt to make rice bran. This is the lowest quality product. Store for a long time. I like the people below because it doesn't rot. "[Annotation 1] a.

At the end of the Meiji eraJapanese ArmyGoro Kawamura (founder), who worked at the brewery, devised a miso fast brewing method that controls the function of the jiuqu by controlling the temperature. The brewing time can be reduced to several months. At that time, it became popular throughout the country along with the Sendai miso brewing method that was mainstream in Tokyo.[12].

Until the end of the Meiji era, tools for crushing miso's raw beansMortarBecause it was a pestle and could not be completely crushed, the beans and fragments remained in the shipped miso before use.MortarI crushed the grains with and strained them with "Misokoshi" before using them. Eventually, when miso production was mechanized, miso was machined before shipping, and "strained miso" and "strained miso" were sold, which saves the trouble of straining and straining each at home. It was after the introduction of the miso straining machine that the smooth paste-like miso that came to be sold today was introduced, but the custom of using miso in a mortar remained after the war. It is argued that the strained miso is inferior in taste, and even now, "grain miso" that is not strained is on sale,Kagoshima OfAmami cuisineThere are some areas that use it as it is.

Taisho era

In 1926 (Taisho 15), "The latest soy sauce miso brewing method" by Kenjiro Tsugano, Brewing Criticism Company was published. This book is available in the Digital Library of the National Diet Library. Understand how to make soy sauce miso at that time[13].

Showa period

In prewar Tokyo, early-made Sendai miso (Hayasen) based on the miso fast-brewing method developed by Kawamura became popular.Second World WarSome have developed into a national miso union system (all taste system) under food control.distributionIt became the standard manufacturing method for miso[12].. In addition, as a result of trying the brewing method focusing on temperature in various places, during the war1944 (19th year of Showa) Eizo Nakata (Maruman (Miso production)The founder) developed the Nakata-style rapid brewing method, which promoted the optimization of temperature control during brewing. It has become possible to set the brewing time to 20 days. This fast brewing method, along with Nakata's Shinshu miso brewing method, became widespread throughout the country after the war.

Until the latter half of the Showa 30's, many farmers made their own miso at home in rural areas, and the number of homemade miso decreased with the period of high economic growth in the 40's.[14].. However, for the next 20 years, I bought a miso called "Miso" and fermented and aged at home.[14].

1970 eraUntil the 40s, a grocery store (Liquor store,Mikawaya)EtcSoy sauceAnd miso were sold by weight from barrels, but due to changes in distribution, the sales by weight have disappeared and are replaced by those in packages such as bags and plastic containers.Conventionally, when packing in a bagAdditiveAsPotassium sorbateWas used, but nowalcohol(Ethyl alcohol) Is added in 2-3%. This sterilizes salt-tolerant yeast and produces it by fermentation.carbon dioxideIt is possible to prevent expansion due to. The one that has not been adjusted is called raw miso, and salt-tolerant yeast is still active.

In the skill test system, which is a national qualification from the latter half of 1979 (Showa 54)[15],Miso manufacturing technicianLevel 1 and Level 2 exams have begun[16].. It ensures the transfer of miso manufacturing skills. Level 1 has 7 years or more of work experience, or 2 years or more of work experience after passing Level 2, and Level 2 has 2 years or more of work experience. The subjects are miso manufacturing method, microorganisms and enzymes, general chemistry, electricity, related regulations, safety and health, and there is a practical test.


Today in HokkaidoOtoko FumuraFrom OkinawaYonaguni TownUntil then, there are manufacturers in all regions of Japan. It can be inferred that it can be manufactured without such advanced technology and large capital investment.[Source required]..Even within the same grain soy sauce, it is concentrated in a specific areaSoy sauceIt is also a difference from manufacturing. There are many manufacturers, and like other foods, products are becoming more multifunctional and differentiating.[Source required]..Not just the difference in materialssoup stockIncludedcalciumWe sell products with the addition of such as. Miso that is placed on the table, such as "Take Miso Kake Miso," is also popular. Since 2000 (12), the shipment volume of Miso has decreased monotonically, and in 2015 (27) it has fallen by nearly 2000% compared to 12 (2).[17].. Since 2000 (Heisei 12), the shipment has been less than a quarter only at department stores.[18].

August 2009 Miso sommelier system established[19], The basis for the spread of Miso has been established, but the decrease in consumption has not been stopped.

Currently, "miso" ismiso,Miso Soup TheMiso SoupAs a result, people outside Japan are familiar with it as Japanese.[20].

Kind of miso

Miso isYESIs referred to as "miso" and is classified as follows depending on the main material.

  • Miso
    • Rice miso-Fermented and aged soybean and rice.
    • Miso-Miso-Fermented and aged soybeans and barley or barley.
    • Bean miso-Fermented and aged soybeans.
    • Mixed miso-A mixture of the above miso. Or other miso.

In addition, it is also classified into red miso, white miso, and light-colored miso according to the difference in color due to the manufacturing method.

Red miso and white miso

Depends on soybean and koji protein and sugarMaillard reactionCauses the miso to be colored. When a lot of strongly steamed soybeans are used and aged at high temperature for a long period of time, the color becomes darker and becomes red miso. On the other hand, soybeans that have been boiled and flushed with sugar and protein are mixed with a large amount of pearled rice and uncolored jiuqu, and aged for a short period of time to make white miso. Since the aging period of white miso is short, some of the white miso has white particles such as wheat. Red miso, which has a long aging period, tends to have a high salt concentration for storage, but Edo sweet miso, which is a red miso that finishes aging at high temperature in a very short period of time, has a low salt concentration and is sweet.[21].. In the middle, there is light-colored miso represented by Shinshu miso, which is popular nationwide.

In general, red miso has a high salt concentration and is salty, and has a long aging period, so it is rich. White miso has a low salt concentration and is made from jiuqu.SugarMore sweet. Red misoTohoku region(Rice and beans) ・Chukyo areaIt is made mainly of (beans). Beans are mainly made of red miso, because beans have a low sugar content and a large amount of protein, which is a material of amino acids. In some parts of the Chukyo area, including black Hatcho Miso, it is called red miso, and the miso soup is called.It's redCall it.

Characteristics and regions of rice miso, soybean miso, and wheat miso

Nationally, the common miso is rice miso, and soybean miso (red) is made only in the Chukyo area. The color of rice miso is diverse, including yellow, yellowish white, and red. When the rice miso is light-colored, boiled soybeans are generally used, but steamed soybeans are used for rice miso that is fairly reddish. In addition, miso, which uses more rice jiuqu, tends to have a shorter aging period. With white miso of riceShinshu Miso-Saikyo MisoIs typical of rice with red misoTsugaru miso,Sendai misoIs typical.Saikyo miso has a strong sweetness, and Sendai miso has a strong spiciness.Tsugaru miso has a unique umami taste, and Shinshu miso has various characteristics such as a light taste.Areas where rice miso is consumed a lot are the Kanto Koshinetsu Tohoku region and Hokkaido (entire eastern Japan).Hokuriku region,KinkiIs. In addition, among the prefectures of Japan, the number one household consumption of miso isNaganoIn addition, Nagano Prefecture is by far the best in terms of production volume.OyakiThere are also local specialty products.

Miso miso accounts for about 11% of the production,Kyusyu,ChugokuWestern,ShikokuIn the west, wheat miso is mainly made. In northern Kanto, red miso made from barley is also made.[22].

Red miso of beans is steamed soybeans (or boiled soybeans)Bean JiuquSince it has a longer ripening period than red miso of rice, its color is dark reddish brown with a stronger reddish color and a blackish tint than red miso of rice. Compared to rice miso and wheat miso, it has less sweetness, astringency and umami, which is a major feature. Mainly consuming soybean misoChukyo areaAichi prefecture, Gifu prefectureMino regionLimited to the central and southern parts of the prefecture, the northern, middle and southern parts of Mie prefecture, and the western part of Shizuoka prefecture.In soybean miso,Hatcho MisoIs typical.

An example of how to make handmade miso

In recent years, it has become rare to make miso at home, but it was once made by many households. Miso is relatively easy to make by yourself, and anyone can make a decent workmanship. In the Middle Ages, the expression "front miso" was born, boasting of one's own work and skill.

An example of how to make handmade miso at home is shown below.[6][Reliability required verification].

  1. Mix 1kg of rice jiuqu and 430g of salt. This is called "Shiri-kiri" and the mixture with salt is called "Shiori-kiri-koji." By saltNeisseria gonorrhoeaeIs inactivated at this pointmaltProduced by酵素group(Protease,amylase,LipaseEtc.) remain as it is, due to the action of the enzyme groupprotein,Starch,LipidAre eachamino acid,glucose,fatty acidIs decomposed into. Amino acids are delicious, glucose is sweet and salt resistantyeastDecomposes glucose to produceethanolBecomes part of the scent and is salt tolerantLactic acid bacteriaProduces a faint acidity from glucose. Insufficient salt causes germs to grow.
  2. Soak 1 kg of soybeans in water overnight, boil until soft enough, drain, crush boiled beans thoroughly, add cold to human skin to salted jiuqu and mix well. If soybeans are still hot, the enzyme loses its activity due to heat. If the boiled beans are not crushed sufficiently and mixed well with the jiuqu, the soybean protein and the enzyme of the jiuqu will not contact and react, and the amino acid decomposition will not proceed and the taste will not be obtained.
  3. Mix wellzipperAttachedpolyethylenePacked in a bag空 気(=oxygen) Well pulled out. Especially if you don't deflateNatto bacteria,MoldEtc.Miscellaneous bacteriaCauses breeding. Although barrels may be used, polyethylene bags are easier to vent and easier to manage at home. If it is a transparent polyethylene bag, it can be easily sealed and the inside condition can be confirmed. You can also stir the beans in the sealed state, or crush the uncrushed beans and jiuqu with your fingers from the top of the bag. Since aging of miso is centered on the contact reaction between the enzyme produced by koji and soybean protein, the more it is stirred and the more the beans and koji are crushed, the faster the decomposition into amino acids. Also, salt resistanceyeastbyfermentationAlong withcarbon dioxideIt is necessary to remove the gas as appropriate. When space is created, the possibility of mold growth increases. Even if mold grows, it is usually a koji mold grown from spores, so unless there is an extreme difference in color tone, it can be mixed with miso as it is in the usual case. As shown in the photo at the top of this article, the reason why the miso manufacturer piles up stone weights like mountains in miso barrels is to remove gas (air (= oxygen) and carbon dioxide generated by fermentation) by the weight of the stones. Is. When the fermentation has progressed to some extent, "turn it upside down" about once to stir. Amino acids react with glucose as fermentation progressesMaillard reactionThe color of miso gradually changes to brown. This change in color indicates the degree of amino acid production and the degree of umami.
  4. Miso is ready over the summer. Since the enzyme reaction rate depends on the temperature, if the temperature does not rise sufficiently, the enzyme cannot sufficiently decompose proteins and other substances into amino acids, and the umami is not sufficiently produced.

Health effects of miso

Presence or absence of carcinogenicity due to kojic acid

Kojic acid (Kojic acid/ Kojic acid) is in 7Food Sanitation ActWith revisionExisting additivesIs approved for use asFood additiveIs. This kojic acid is a raw material with antibacterial activity produced by aspergillus (genus Aspergillus, etc.) used in the production of miso and soy sauce.corruptionIt is an important substance that has the effect of preventing. However, to the kojic acidLiver cancerSince the danger of inducing such substances has been pointed out, the carcinogenicity of miso and soy sauce has become a problem. However, the concentration in food is very small compared to the concentration in animal tests (1 to 3% mixed diet administration). After that, a cosmetic manufacturer conducted an additional test to confirm the safety of kojic acid, and proved that the use of kojic acid as a cosmetic product had no safety problem. Miso is a food that has been ingested for a long time, and since the concentration in the food is very small, the toxicity of kojic acid is not considered to be a problem.

The theory that it is useful for health

Made by fermentationfatty acidethyl(carboxylic acidethylester) KindgunThere is a theory that it suppresses the power of mutagens that cause. Studies have shown that people who drink miso soup more often have a lower gastric cancer mortality rate (1981 Cancer Society). In animal experimentsLung cancer,Gastric cancer,Breast cancer,Liver cancer,Colorectal cancerThe effect of suppressing miso was observed, and the higher the maturity of miso, the higher the effect. Included in misoIsoflavoneSuppresses cancer growth,ApoptosisIsoflavones may be induced by the aging of miso.GlycosideからAglyconeIt is said that it may change to a type and the effect of suppressing cancer may be further enhanced, or that bioactive substances including cancer prevention may be produced in healthy miso that is aging. ing.blood pressureIt is said that it also has a lowering effect.[3].

Miso has excellent antioxidant capacity, and it is the same as miso.radicalMost of the capture ability is borne by melanoidin, and it is said that the darker the color of miso, the higher the ability.[33].

Skin effect

MarkoTokyo Institute of TechnologyIn collaboration with researchers in Japan, it was discovered that miso has the effect of improving skin moisturization and texture.[34].. This is the miso extract in the stratum corneumCeramideSynthesize酵素Is caused by activating[34].

Harmfulness of salt

However, the risk of increasing the incidence of gastric cancer due to the salt content of miso is lower than that of the same amount of salt. Also usuallyHigh blood pressureAlthough it causes salt, miso may not raise blood pressure, which is suggested by animal experiments. Miso soybean protein seems to have a role in lowering blood pressure[36][37].

Foreign matter mixed

The first Setouchi Sea landed and disappeared at the end of the Miocene (about 1000 million years ago) due to the uplift of the entire Setouchi Ward.In the land eraPlioceneIt lasted more than 500 million years until the beginning[36]..During this period, there was a remarkable change in structural movement.It became difficult to distinguish the four sub-districts that were clear during the time of the First Seto Inland Sea, and the wave-like movement in the north-south direction became dominant instead of the structural movement in the direction of Honshu that had been predominant until then.[35]..In response to this structural movement, Southwest Japan began to subside again, and lakes and marshes began to form.[36].


About 150 million years ago, seawater from the Pacific Ocean flowed into the Kinki region through the Kii Channel, and the second transgression about 130 million years ago created the Second Seto Inland Sea.Osaka UniversityDiscovered on Toyonaka CampusToyotamaphimeiaThe fossil of (Toyota Mahimeia Machicanensis) dates back about 100 million years after the birth of the Second Seto Inland Sea.[36].

Recorded history

Ancient times

Since ancient times, the Seto Inland Sea has functioned as a major transportation artery.The thing is"Wei Zhajin”And“Japanese calligraphy"ofDomestic productionAt the stageIzanamiIt can be inferred from the fact that the islands produced by the islands are lined up along the Seto Inland Sea route.

Birth of the concept of "Seto Inland Sea"

The concept of the Seto Inland Sea was bornEdo PeriodIt is said to be late.Until thenIzumi Nada,Harima Nada,Bingo Nada,AkinadaEtc., narrower海域There was no point of view to grasp the entire Seto Inland Sea as one, only the concept of.That said, the "Setouchi" of the Edo period does not necessarily overlap with the current "Seto Inland Sea."1813 Written inSado OfCruise shipIn the merchant's travel diary "Sea and Land Directions Diary"OnomichiShimonosekiThe space is called "Setouchi".

It was the opportunity for the concept of "Seto Inland Sea" to be established as it is today.MeijiThis is because Westerners called this area The Inland Sea during the period.Japanese geographers translated the sea area called by Westerners as "Seto Inland Sea" from around 1872, and this became widespread in the latter half of the Meiji era (however, "Seto Inland Sea" at this time). IsAkashi StraitからKanmon StraitIt often took more time to extend the concept of the "Seto Inland Sea" to the wider waters as it is today).

The first cohesive discussion by the JapaneseKazu Konishi"Seto Inland Sea Theory" (1911).In this paper, Konishi pointed out the necessity of considering the Seto Inland Sea as one of the major themes, and positively evaluated the beauty of the islands of the Seto Inland Sea.In addition, Konishi said, "National parkI also pointed out the necessity of making "" in Japan, and laterImperial AssemblyProposed the establishment of a national park in Japan.Accept this proposalNational Park LawWas enacted in 1931,1934 The Seto Inland Sea is Unzen (currently the current one) on March 3th.Unzen Amakusa National Park), Kirishima (currentlyKirishima Kinko Bay National Park) And Japan's first national park "Seto Inland Sea National ParkBecame[41].

Also at this timeKorean communication ambassador TomonouraThere is a record that praised "Nitto Daiichi Scenic Spot (the best scenery in Japan)".

To the destination of modern tourism

19st centuryTo become and,SieboldAcclaimed the scenery of the Seto Inland Sea.Also in the Meiji eraThomas Cook,Ulysses GrantWesterners such as, came to Japan, and modern "tourist eyes" (about this conceptJohn urryThe Seto Inland Sea was reorganized by (see).In other words, while sightseeing in the Seto Inland Sea before the early modern period had the form of visiting "famous places" through literary works and worshiping at historical shrines and temples, Westerners seemed to be commonplace in various parts of the Seto Inland Sea (at that time). Scenery seen in (Tajima Sea,Terraced fields,White sand blue pine, Go and goJapanese boatEtc.), and gave them value as tourism resources.In other words, with the arrival of modern times, tourism in the Seto Inland Sea has changed from tourism that seeks "meaning" to tourism that uses "vision."[42]. Ferdinand von RichthofenThe Baron left behind the "China Travel Diary" (1943, 18) and praised the Seto Inland Sea as "a world of beauty that weaves between islands and the ocean, which is remarkable in the world."

Furthermore, in May 1912 (Meiji 45),Osaka Merchant Marine Beppu hot springMade in Germany on the Hanshin-Beppu route for the purpose of tourism developmentFreighter"Red pillThe cruise, which was purely for sightseeing, became very popular. In 1934 (Showa 9), it became one of Japan's first national parks as mentioned above.

Bubble economy and overdevelopment

1987'sGeneral Recreation Area Improvement ActThe resort development rush of the Japanese archipelago accompanying the enactment was no exception to the Seto Inland Sea, and golf courses and marina were built one after another along the coast.However, such overdevelopment also destroyed the historic landscape of the Seto Inland Sea.Also,Bubble burstAfter that, the development of these resorts was suspended, and some land was abandoned during development.

Overfishing and reduction of fish stocks

After World War II, the catch in the Seto Inland Sea increased explosively, reaching a peak in 1982, four times that of the early Showa period.However, after that, the amount of resources decreased due to environmental destruction and overfishing, and sardines, sea breams, Spanish mackerels, etc.TroughThe stock of major fish species is far from recovering.ClamsAlsoLandfillThe number has decreased sharply because the growing environment was destroyed due to such reasons.ClamIs almost extinct.

Terraced fields

Since the remote islands in the Seto Inland Sea have few cultivable flatlands, the residents have cleared the mountains.Terraced fieldsWas often made.However, the terraced fields that were cleared in this way often had thin soil, so farmers were forced to use lower fertilizer.SeaweedWas manually carried up and fertilized to improve the soil.In general,ClearingIt was said that it would take 10 years before a decent crop could be harvested.This terraced fieldMandarin orangeSuitable for cultivation, especiallyEhime mandarin orangeIs famous.


After clearing all the mountains on the island, he sometimes went to a nearby island and cleared it there.Having farmland on another island in this way was called "departure", "departure", or "migratory".The farmers got a small wooden boat (farm boat), which went to and from the island with farmland.

Salt industry

The coast of the Seto Inland Sea has a warm climate with little rain since ancient times.Salt makingHas been actively practiced.Yayoi PeriodToKibiIn the countrysideEarthenwareSalt production begins by adding seawater to the beach and boiling it, and in the Nara period, it shifts to the "Shiojiri method" that uses sandy beaches.In the Middle Ages, the seawater pumped up was sprinkled on a sandy beach to evaporate the water and then boiled down.ShiodaTransition to, further17st centuryIn the first halfHimeji DomaintidalThe Irihama salt farm was devised, and the Seto Inland Sea became the center of salt production.The salt from the Seto Inland Sea during this period was also called "Jushu salt".this isHarima country,Bizen country,China,Bingo country,Aki country,Suo,Nagato country,Awakuni,Sanuki country,Iyo countryIt means salt produced in 10 countries.

It was a salt industry that took advantage of the climate of Setouchi, but it is not affected by the weather or climate.Ion exchange membraneDue to the development of the salt-making method, it was temporarily cut off in 1972.However, when the sale of salt was completely liberalized in 2002,SensuijimaAlthough it was a small scale, the salt industry was revived.

Salt industry and white sand blue pine

The salt industry is an industry that consumes a large amount of fuel.Since salt production was active along the coast of the Seto Inland Sea, the satoyama that supplied wood as fuel was cut down one after another.Bald mountain(For details, see "SatoyamaSee).In the Seto Inland SeaWhite sand blue pineOne of the reasons why there were many was from Satoyama, which became a bald mountain in this way.graniteIt has been pointed out that erosion caused the spillage to flow down the river, enter the Seto Inland Sea, and become "white sand."

red tide

1970 From (Showa 45)1976 (Showa 51)red tideThe number of cases increased from about 80 to about 300.The Seto Inland Sea contaminated with factory wastewater and domestic wastewater was temporarily called the "Sea of ​​Death," and in 1973 the "Seto Inland Sea Environmental Conservation Special Measures Law" (Setouchi Law) was enacted.[54]..Although it has been gradually decreasing since then, about 2002 cases have been confirmed in 14 (100).The sea areas that occurred in the same year were Osaka Bay, Kii Channel, the opposite shore of Awaji Island in Harima Nada, Ehime Prefecture in Nada, Hiroshima Bay, Bōyo Islands, and Suo Nada.The outbreak of red tide has caused damage to the fishery of farmed yellowtail, sea bream, true oysters, and natural seafood.

By improving the environment surrounding the Seto Inland Seabiodiversity・ Culturally "rich sea (satoumi)[59]) ”Will be investigated, researched, and countermeasures will be taken.

In 2018, Hyogo Prefecture presented a new standard draft to set a lower limit of nitrogen concentration at a subcommittee of the Prefectural Environmental Council.It was a turning point in the administration that aimed to reduce the nitrogen concentration.Takenori Fujiwara (Kyoto UniversityHonorary professor) Is transparent enough for diving when the nitrogen concentration is 0.2 mg / l or less (presented as the lower limit).He commented that in the Seto Inland Sea, not only seaweed but also clams and small fish are affected.[60].
