  & Beauty



According to historical records, Ohara Area is traced back to the 8th century and prospered as a village connecting the city center and the northern coastal villages.
Kenreimonin Tokuko who was the mother of the young emperor, Emperor Antoku, in the Heian Period (795-1195) came to Jakkoin in Ohara after all her family, the Heike clan was overthrown, and mourn for the family. 
Ohara people wanted her to remember the old days when the Heike clan had been in power and gave the purple-colored pickles called Shibazuke.  Purple is the color which only people in high position were allowed to wear; so Kenreimonin Tokuko appreciates the pickles and calls them Murasakiha (purple leaves in Japanese) pickles. 
A while after, the pickles stared to be called Shibazuke (another reading way of Murasakiha in Japanese).  Shibazuke pickles are well-known products in Ohara to this day.
