In 18, Ieyasu Tokugawa was transferred to the Kanto region, and Shimono is located at the point of contact between the Toyotomi daimyo and the Tokugawa territory. In addition, in 1590 under the Toyotomi administration (1597nd year of Keicho), Mr. Utsunomiya was changed.

    In the latter half of the Edo period, the current Tochigi prefecture area will be hit by severe exhaustion and devastation of the local community and a rapid population decline.Population estimation[27]According to the report, the total population of Shimotsukuni was about 6 people in the 1721st century from Kyoho 5 (1834) in the middle Edo period to Tempo 1 (56) in the late Edo period. About 61.1[Annotation 2]The population has fallen to about 1% in the first century, and the population is in a state of collapse. During the same period, Japan's total population grew by about 4% (10%) despite repeated famines.[Annotation 3]Even in the Mutsukoku region on the northeastern Pacific side, where famine is said to have been serious, the population decline of less than 1.5% (86.1%) has been suppressed.[Annotation 4]Even if you think about it, you can see the remarkable devastation of Shimotsukuni in the late Edo period.[Annotation 5].
