Ohmi Merchants' Town, Gokasho

I introduced Ito Chubei’s house in Toyosato Town in Shiga Prefecture before. Ito Chubei was an Ohmi merchant who founded a big corporation, Ito-Chu Corporation.

There is a town called Gokasho on the east side of Lake Biwa in Shiga. From this town, a lot of Ohmi Merchants spread to all over Japan in Edo Period, and made good business.

I like Ohmi Merchants Policy. Their policy is that business should be good to themselves, their clients, and their society. They were not greedy..... like... you know.

There are old Ohimi Merchants housed remained in the town of Gokasho. I want to spend more time here next time.
