What kind of place?
"Koishiki" started operations as an inn in the 5th year of the Meiji era. There are records of many politicians and literary figures who have made a name for themselves in Japanese history.
Fuchu City, where "Koishiki" is located, is an old historical town where Bingo Kokufu was located after the Taika Reform. In the Edo period, local specialties (cotton, indigo, tobacco) and Sanin region specialties were transported to the whole country via this as a key point of the Ishishu Highway leading to Iwami Ginzan, and Fuchu City is its base as an inn town. Has played a key role.
In Meiji year 5 (7), Risuke Doi opened "Ryokan Habuya", the prototype of Koishiki. After that, he changed his name to "Koishiki" at the suggestion of Tomosaburo Nobuto, a businessman of the time. There are various theories about the name of Koishiki, but it is worth mentioning that the name "Koishiki" was given in a very sexy and stylish way in those days when it was common to use the region or the name as a trade name. When they were serving carp dishes, they were nicknamed "Koi-isshiki" and enjoyed as one of the witty conversations. After that, Koishiki developed because Risuke's daughter Take became a proprietress and in Taisho year 2 (9) a large sum of money, 2 yen in those days, was invested. 【2,400 yen is a about 3 million yen converting the price of rice in Taisho year XNUMX (XNUMX) to the prise of rice in Reiwa year XNUMX (XNUMX)】 The garden was developed under the direction of a high priest who looked down from the third floor of the main building, and its name became widely known as a symbol of the Bingo area.
At that time, many politicians and cultural figures visited, and there are records that successive prime ministers such as Tsuyoshi Inukai, Nobusuke Kishi, and Takeo Fukuda, and big politicians such as Iichiro Hatoyama stayed.Among the cultural figures, the names of writers such as Masuji Ibuse, Eiji Yoshikawa, Katai Tayama, Sensaku Shigeyama, a living national treasure kyogen master, and Kaneshige Toyo, a living national treasure, are on the guest list.Koishiki, which built an era in this way, became a registered tangible cultural property and became a symbol of Fuchu City.
