|| There were many factories by development (development) of (let's go), railroad and voyage (whether like this) after the Meiji Restoration (we believe Grandpa niece) of 1867 for eight generations having port. Cement factory of the first operates in Kyushu in 1890 (sogyo). This factory was the first modern factory (kindaikoujo) in Kumamoto. Afterwards, factories which made factory, liquor which made paper and manure (hiryo) were made in sequence, and Yatsushiro came to be called manufacturing town (kindaikougyotoshi) by area that was reclamation (kantaku) and rice field of the shore in modern times.
In addition, igusano production became popular more and more, and mall (shotengai) and Hinagu Onsen (hinaguonsen) became the most lively place in Kumamoto.
However, after "oil crisis" of 1973, pollution issues (kougaimondai) had occurred, too, and temporary gaiety was settled down little by little, too. Opening (we buy and go) of Kyushu Shinkansen (we learn moxacautery and do not shake) is also desired (hope) oninatteimasu of people in the future now.
