There was Miyamura unrefined hemp Kura to the east of Miyamura building (a certain place between current small cherry tree), and it is only the unrefined hemp Kura gate now to remain.
With "unrefined hemp," it was cultivated as fiber of clothes which were called "insect" with maximum product of Yonezawa feudal clan with lacquer. Unrefined hemp of Nishiokitama was carried to unrefined hemp Kura of Yonezawa after it was collected cargo, and it was sent to the upper part as raw materials of naryosarashi (expose) from there in 1663 (Kanbun 3) that unrefined hemp Kura was built.
