Revisiting the Epic Saga of Kinokuniya Bunzaemon

Travel back to the Edo Period, a time of audacious legends and fortunes won through sheer daring. Meet Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, a name etched in history as Kishu's (formerly Wakayama) most illustrious business magnate.

回到江户时代,那是一个充满大无畏传奇和通过勇气赢得财富的时代。来认识一下纪伊国屋文左卫门吧,他是纪州(和歌山县)最杰出的商业巨头,垂名与纪州商业史。

Imagine a treacherous voyage aboard the legendary "Kinokuni Mikanbune," laden with Kishu's golden treasure—mikan, those humble mandarin oranges destined to become Bunzaemon's crowning achievement.

想象一下,乘坐传说中的“之国蜜柑船”号进行一次危险的旅行,船上满载着纪州的黄金宝藏——柑橘,那些普通的柑橘注定会成为文左卫门的最高成就。

Arida, nestled in Wakayama, was the heart of mikan cultivation. In 1634, Tobei Takigawara of Arida dared to share his beloved mikan with Edo, present-day Tokyo. Success beckoned, but fate had a cruel twist. Just when the annual Fuigo Festival, a cherished tradition involving the joyful tossing of mikan to eager children in Edo, was approaching, the tempestuous sea roared, making voyages perilous. Panic gripped the hearts of the mandarin orange farmers and the merchants who relied on their bounty.

坐落在和歌山的有田是柑橘种植的中心。1634年,有田的Tobei Takigawara敢于与江户(即今天的东京)分享他忠爱的柑橘。当成功在向他招手时,但命运发生了残酷的转折。一年一度的Fuigo祭即将到来,汹涌的海浪呼啸而来,航行变得极其危险。恐慌笼罩着柑橘种植者和依赖他们赚钱的商人的心头。

In a heroic turn of events, Kinokuniya Bunzaemon, a courageous 17-year-old, stepped forward. With two devoted comrades, he braved the tempestuous seas and delivered coveted mikan to Edo, amassing immense wealth as a lumber merchant.

当时只有17岁的纪伊国屋文左卫门挺身而出,他和两位忠诚的战友一起,冒着汹涌的大海,将梦寐以求的柑橘送到江户,作为一名成功的商人积累了巨额财富。
