Bungoro Osaki 尾崎文五郎 (おさき ぶんごろう)

2014.02.17 (Mon)

Bungoro Osaki was a founder of the Soukeisha business, established in 1881. At the time, Soukeisha was the prefecture’s only human welfare association, a group dedicated to providing services rather than making profits. Osaki was also credited with building and providing a storehouse for disaster preparation for Uno village.

1881(明治14)年に設立された「奨恵社」創立の立役者の一人です。「奨恵社」は当時の県中部で唯一の慈恵厚生組織で、営利を目的としない慈善団体でした。また、氏は地元の宇野村(湯梨浜町宇野)の災害に備え、甘藷(かんしょ)倉を建てて村民に提供したというエピソードもあります。
