The word "Mangan" means "fulfillment of one's prayer/request" in reference to the completion of the 33-temple pilgrimage. People who complete the pilgrimage are considered to be superior to others. And so the Japanese phrase "ta wo nuku" (他を抜く), meaning "surpassing others," applies to them. Since "ta wo nuku" almost sounds like "tanuki," they have all these tanuki here.Dec 16, 2021

From the train, you see a lot of persimmon groves. This area of Gifu (Mizuho, Motosu, Ibigawa, etc.) is where the fuyu-gaki variety of persimmons (富有柿) originated in the late 19th century.Now grown all over western Japan. Gifu Prefecture is Japan's second largest producer of fuyu-gaki persimmons after Nara Prefecture. If you walk around these neighborhoods, you might see persimmons for sale for cheap in front of a house.

Unfortunately, a few of these farmers are seeing thieves stealing their fruit. They will likely install more security cameras.
