Genzo Masano was born in Murai in Hino in 1659 (2nd year of Manji) as the third son of his father Genshiro and his mother Shino, and his childhood name was Manshiro.1676/(Enpo4 years) Renamed Genshichi at the age of 18PeddlerTo start.At first, I went to work with my second brother Maruemon to learn about commerce, and it was sunny.1684/(SacrednessFirst year) Independence as a merchant was recognized[1]..In addition, in another document, it is stated that because the profit of agriculture is thin, he went to Echigo to learn business and started business after his father died.[2].

The area where the business was conductedShinshu-Echigo-Edo-Kuwana-Kyoto-Osaka-SakaiPurchased in Kyoto, Osaka, and Sakaicotton・ Selling antiques (used clothes, used ornaments, etc.) and clothing in Shinshu and Echigo, in Shinshu and EchigoShrink-た ば こEtc. were purchased and sold above.At the beginning of the independence, the funds on hand were only 32 cars (assuming 1 yen per car (estimated in the same way thereafter), the present value is about 40 million yen), but the year before the medical training was conducted.1692/(GenrokuIn 5 years), the assets were 530 cars (about 21.2 million yen).During this time, he borrowed XNUMX% of the original business from his mother and siblings to expand his business.Also, as I learned from my brother, I also went on a business with my younger brother Yasubei for a while and taught my brother about the business.[1].

1693/(6th year of Genroku) Suddenly, he started medical training under the doctor Nagoya Tansui in Kyoto.The reason is uncertain, but it is thought that he was very impressed by the fact that Nagoya Tansui diagnosed and treated his mother Shino's disease, and that he was originally interested in medical treatment because his ancestor had an eye doctor. ing.During medical training, until thenaccounts receivableThere is collection and interest income on loans, and in addition, in the Genroku decadeMoneySince I hired two people to do business, I was able to fully support my family and work hard at medical and pharmaceutical training.[3].

Genzo's profit has grown dramatically since then.[3]..In fact, it has been 25 years since we switched to the pharmaceutical wholesale business, despite the fact that there was a scorching of the Daimyo lender.1725/(KyohoIn 10), it grew to have assets of over 82 million cars (about 3.3 million yen).[1][4].

1732/(Kyoho 17 years), the assets were transferred to the eldest son, Hakuyoshi Nagoya, and the second son, Inogoro.Hakuyu was given more than 13 hundred funds to 22 real estate such as rental houses in a mansion in Kyoto, and Ino Goro was given more than 20 hundred funds to Hino's main house / store and assets of business sales, and loaned separately. We entrusted the management of over 47 hundred assets such as gold to two people.At this point, Genzo had nearly 90 million cars (about 3.6 million yen), excluding real estate.Genzo died the year after the transfer of assets[7].

After Genzo, the Masano family put out two Hobashi bridges by the end of the Tokugawa shogunate.[7].
