■ Comment from the organizer
○ Arizu Misato Promotion Public Corporation Senior Managing Director Nobuhiro Takanashi
Aizu Misato Promotion Corporation has been conducting a direct vegetable market in Wakamatsu 2-chome housing complex in November every year. There is a long history of exchange between the end of Showa, Heisei, and Reiwa and three generations.
Misato is a mountainous area in western Aizu. The population that had been 24,000 at the time of the merger has now decreased to 20,000. Population decline is unstoppable, and aging is a serious problem. Therefore, we created a system called supporters, promoted local PR in various places, and interacted with other areas.
As part of this, we planned an “adult dining room” and provided pompom curry curry. Participating in the Wakamatsu housing complex with the same aging problem, I was able to expand ideas for future exchange between Misato and Wakamatsu and revitalization of local governments. ○ Mr. Shigeo Sato, Chairman, Wakamatsu 2-chome Residents’ Association Aizu Misato Town and Wakamatsu 2-chome housing complex have been around for about 20 years, selling vegetables and selling local sake. This time, I was looking forward to seeing medicinal curry made from Aizu’s ginseng carrot, which is very rare as a domestic product. I think that the interaction between Aizu Misato Promotion Corporation and residents of the housing complex was full of energy and fruitful. This time, I was appointed as the 8th “Supporter” in Aizu Misato-cho. Going forward, we will continue to actively cooperate and communicate with Funabashi and Aizu exchange events.
■ About the future
Based on ideas from the workshop, the Misato Aizu Promotion Public Corporation will hold an event like an adult cafeteria in the future, in addition to the direct-growth vegetable market, which has been held every year for more than 20 years in the Wakamatsu 2-chome housing complex. I want to do it. In addition, at the “Aizu Misato Supporters’ Meeting” scheduled to be held in Nishi-Shimbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo in late February, we will introduce this event and hope to further excite Aizu Misato Town.

○ Aging situation of Wakamatsu 2-chome housing complex
The Wakamatsu 2-chome housing complex, which was born in 1969, was built during the high economic growth period when many workers were flowing into the Tokyo metropolitan area, and 1324 rental homes were occupied. It became a medium-sized complex. On the other hand, many residents are aging, and 78% of residents are said to be over 60 years old. [2] Many elderly people have problems such as going down the stairs and shopping at supermarkets as well as their physical strength, and shopping at supermarkets in the housing complex is finally over. You.
○ Connection between Aizu Misato Town and Wakamatsu 2-chome Complex Aizumi Misato Promotion Public Corporation has been operating a direct-grown vegetable market every year in the Wakamatsu housing complex for more than 20 years. The connection began when a certain high school in Chiba Prefecture visited a producer in Aizu Hongocho [3] before the merger to experience farming. The experience there was very popular, and the consultation of the PTA officer who heard the rumors started a farming market in Narashinodai housing complex in Chiba prefecture. Taking advantage of this, the vegetable market has been held in the Wakamatsu housing complex as well.
○ About the carrot industry in Aizu
Aizu has been producing Panax ginseng for more than 400 years as one of the three major localities of Panax ginseng. Panax ginseng was a major industry in Aizu mainly for exporting to South Korea and Taiwan, but the production population is decreasing due to the sluggish export prices and aging of producers. In the last few years, new farmers have been increasing due to some producers’ efforts, and they are gradually recovering. The Aizu Misato Promotion Corporation has commercialized a pin-pin rolled curry as a new product using Aizu panax to excite such local industries.
