Ujisato Gamo and Omi-Hino-Merchants

Posted by

Ujisato Festival was held in Hino Town last weekend. It was a festival of Ujisato Gamo who was a feudal lord of the Sengoku and Azuchi–Momoyama periods. He was the lord of Hino Castle, and served under Nobunaga Oda first and later Hideyoshi Toyotomi. He played an influential role during the Sengoku periods. One of the most significant things he did was to foster Omi-Hino-merchants.


Many stalls were there,


including Hino Brewing which I featured in my video the week before


Tried being Ujisato-haha.


This is Gamonyan, Hino’s Yuru-chara, the official character.
