Hosokawa feudal lord, kori (five generations) established bathroom of hanei

The last update date:

Beginning of hot water of dear, afterward 350 years, heaven-sent luck

When Hideyoshi went along Hinagu, hot spring sprang out in tideland, but the world was subjugated and there was the Edo Shogunate and advanced to (1603), landfill of Hinagu, and road along the shore was opened up, and Satsuma Kaido was set as santsutomedoro, too. Prince Shimazu was used habitually as hot water of rest of santsutomeofuku in the way, too. Placard spot, Yonekura of feudal clan were able to do it before this hot water, too.
Hosokawa feudal clan rebuilds (1657) hot spring bathroom very much in 1657.
Hot-springs resort of large-scale hanei which can say that it is rather new appears.
In bathtub which we divided into social position that touched three partitions of "flat hot water" for "next gino hot water" for "Gozenyu" where feudal lord took a bath status of samurai commoner, it was groundbreaking.

 ・Feudal lord, kori takes a bath, too
 Documents that 27-year-old kori took a bath at the time of (1676) in 1669 are left in the Uenos.
 In "Takada teahouse night, we have the honor of being in that clause ceramic ware difference……The ceramic ware work preference command is often dated in summoning dear during Hinagu taking a bath……".

 ・Bathhouse of this hot water has been had extension and/or alteration of many times
 Bathroom before haneiyokujo of the Meiryaku era that kori ordered being destroyed by fire by big fire of Hinagu many times and being revived each time and being redecorated for the Meiji period is (A) figure. Flat hot water was man and woman mixed bathing.
 It was the Meiji era and left the direct management of feudal clan, and, as for Gozenyu, next gino hot water, pay, flat hot water were free. Townsman will be what we were delighted by saying "we can take hot water which my Lord took".
 Flat hot water soaked division and seems to have been prohibited from mixed bathing.

Hinagu is the pivot of Satsuma way. 11 pieces of notice boards were built

Place of camp hot spring trace

Main line, Satsuma Highway of the Edo era to link Satsuma (Kagoshima) to Kumamoto ran right in the middle of Hinagu. We pass the Hinagu Onsen station square through Takada across Maekawa, the Kuma River from the crossroads of Yatsushiro label, and national highway and way of the left slant to diverge are Satsuma Kaido at approximately 200m (night-light is built). (cf. this newspaper back cover)
 It is this hot water of existing hot spring center namely Hinagu, and narrow way where houses in the town form a line on both sides is trace of haneionsen which we spoke on the former page before long. There were placard spot and guard station of 11 mairitsu in open space. In "‥ ‥ bathroom, higodendatekyu uyue is excellent to travel diary of 1829 (1829). We pose to go down bathtub, bank of cut stone, and to take a bath and…". "Hotwater reservoir is full of the tides at the time of high tide on the seaside and makes bathing for ebb tide…".
 Way just goes straight on in before center, and surpass lower Shioya, Umakoshi, and go over mountains of Hatoyama; and to Futami.
 Surface mail went out of Hinagu in those days to various quarters. It right prospered as the middle pivot of Satsuma Highway.

We understand prosperity of Hinagu of the Edo era.

Did Takamori Saigou take hot water of Hinagu, too?

At the time when not only it was the middle pivot of Satsuma Highway, but also there was hot water of hanei, Prince Shimazu of Satsuma dropped in several times, too. Possibly the prosperity that served Shimazu feudal clan might have been over there in one's youth. It was all trip more than 20 days in those days from Kagoshima-jo Castle bottom to the Edo era.
It was the first night of trips that Hinagu grew in foreign country territory. And the way home was the finale that fluttered "‥ ‥ and chest to our country tomorrow".

・In Kagoshima - Hinagu interval, santsutome of Prince Shimazu came and went a lot by ship. We arranged Hosokawa feudal clan from offer of ship to guardian deity of mariners and were friendly relations.
It is thought to be the relationship between Prince Shimazu that hot spring of hanei was established not Yamaga in Hinagu. (Fumitaka Nakahara)

Two routes of Satsuma Highway

When Satsuma Highway goes from the Kumamoto area, we are divided into way of two streaks near entrance of Yatsushiro. Right way that one goes straight on and passes through Yatsushiro-jo Castle bottom. Course called "Nara tree street" where the other avoids castle bottom.
Yatsushiro-jo Castle that was established to check Shimazu. It is said that we avoid castle town in order to avoid useless friction, and procession of daimyo's alternate-year residence in Tokyo of Satsuma feudal clan went as well as reason that distance is close in in "Nara tree street".
