Sainokuni Soy Sauce Kingdom



At the upper stream of Komagawa in Hidaka, Saitama, a place where the river winds through the fields is called Kinchakuda. The reason why it is called Kinchakuda is that, when viewing from the nearby Mountain Hiwada, it looks like a pouch, which is Kinchaku in Japanese. 1200 years ago, people from Goguryeo of Korean peninsula came here and brought their advanced rice production technology over. They drew the water to Kinchakuda to grow rice by holding back the water from going down the stream. Now, it is crowded with a great number of tourists who came to have a barbecue alongside the river in summer or to see Red Spider Lily blooming in autumn.

Please go to the Hidaka City Kinchakuda official website for enquiries about the blooming season. During the flowering period, Hidaka Tourism Association and Hidaka Society of Commerce and Industry will hold some pop-up stores, for example, specialty products of the town, draft beer, Japanese fried noodle, udon etc. Please come and stop by. Yugeta Shoyu products will also be sold at special prices. Please visit us too!
The flowering condition of 2002 is as below.
