To pass down the history and development of Kanra-sha Obata-gumi, which was started as Obata Seishi Company as a re-reeling workplace (workplace for the process of reeling the raw silk from small reels onto large reels) under a union system in 1878, this stone monument was built on the grounds of the union in March 1917. The monument was relocated to the current location in 1978. It reads “in the village, there is no family that does not do sericulture and there is no woman who does not do silk reeling” to inform that women have led the sericulture and silk-reeling industry in the community.
