about SAKAI

※I have posted a picture of the angina remedy I usually take on Sns.

Compared to the days when most people were kind, today Japan has an insidious bullying system where you have to post such negative pictures to surface that you are telling a lie.

About the Sakai (*I am only informing you because of harassment, and there is no particularly interesting information)

(Abbreviated lineage) Nomi-shukune Haji Oe Oe Kaito Sakai Sakai

             Nitta (Yoshishige lineage) Odate Sakai


- Minamoto Honya Sakai family from the western edge of the Eastern Hills for State slope at the foot of a mountain (Bishu) emon=police (later Mukae(i)-machi, Ko-maki City, now within 1, 2, and 3 chome, Komaki City) moved from the Mikawa area (Katabami crest, the crest of Nitta)

For ancestors of the Jomon and Yayoi periods long before the Mikawa area, see the Kami-Worou Shimo-Worou site in Shitara-cho, Aichi Prefecture (moved south from the "cold" northern area with a perimeter dike, rounded features of the site, etc.).

Those with knowledge of the 'clan' will naturally recognise us as the sort that migrated from the north-east over the continent.

Until the end of the Edo period, State slope at the foot of a mountain (Bishu) ---- members were involved in town planning and construction, including the Kiso Kaido Road and umaya, and landscape for State slope at the foot of a mountain (Bishu) , a region that extends round from there too a safe town that could boast of being like Edo.

From the middle to the first half of the Edo period, they were involved in open exchange (trade, transportation, etc.) with foreign countries other than their ancestral roots in Asia.

Clans in the Edo period had many related areas, mainly in eastern Japan.

Sericulture (mulberry trees were planted in mulberry fields in Yasuda-cho, Komaki City) and construction until the mid-Showa period after the abolition of the clan due to the abolition of feudal domains in the prefecture

Sakai's ancestors were respectable and gentle people who lived in the spirit of Confucianism as public figures.

Serious and with a sense of humor, not hard and inflexible.


I was raised strictly by my grandparents and gently by my great-grandmother.

Maternal grandmother was a clan from Mie.

I want my generation to inherit all the hardships of my parents, who had to put up with the constant falsification of the history of the Sakai family in order to erase it from Komaki in Owari (Bishu) .

I do not like the today Owari (Bishu) who continue to mock my Sakai ancestors.

Because of the harassment and the violation of the family register, all the graves of the Sakai family (about 20-25 graves [35.292347, 136.923648] as far as I know), including the Kame lot lot, had to be moved to a different place than where they were originally located.

And now there are other people's graves on top of the original graves where my ancestors slept for generations.

I am the last descendant to see the grave where my ancestors slept.

I wish we could go back to the Japan of the "Orient" rather than the Japan of today.

(In next year's Taiga Drama, Tokugawa Ieyasu will be made into a story about a "country upstart")

(Same for Sakai. All this was said by TV and strangers without thinking of their descendants. That's why I'm annoyed.)

In Japan, the old families have been treated like fools since the late Showa period (Aichi Prefecture is a particularly bad area).

There is no one in the current Komaki City Hall who can explain.

Mrs. Suzuki of Komaki City Board of Education is also.

As of September 2021, there are still many traces of our ancestors' lives in Komaki City. The westernmost base rocks of the eastern hills of Komakiyama and Iwasakiyama are the same.

I think my extensive knowledge of reading the features of the rocky mountains at that time and the technology from Europe is cooler than anyone else.

There is no one in the current Komaki City Hall who can explain. ※Mt. Komaki is a National Historic Site (registered in the mid-Showa period)

There was a tomb here.

SAKAI masayo

I was born and raised in the Sakai Honya family, which established towns throughout Japan in the Edo period in the clan.

Silk farming since the Meiji period.


I was raised strictly by my grandparents and gently by my great-grandmother.

My treasure is the memory of the simple Japanese life that lasted until the late Showa period, which is now gone.

& I am proud of the memories of my ancestors that live within me.

We understand the same pain as those who have suffered and pray that peace will come again.

A word against harassment

I believe that many grandparents would rather respect all life in this world, including people, things, plants, and living things, and wish for warm human connections than to harm or threaten others.
