2014.11.20 (Thu)


In addition to working as a teacher, Kametoshi Tanida was a local historian who left his mark on Yurihama after devoting his life to the research of the area’s rich history. In 1922, he was transferred to Uno Jinjou Elementary School and took that opportunity to study the Uno Osaki Garden, where he discovered an ancient map of the Hashizu harbor. Later, in 1953, he became chairman of the newly formed town of Hawai’s Historical Compilation Committee and wrote prolifically about the findings from his various studies.
