Origin of the name "Denkoku-no-Mori"
Name "Denkoku-no-Mori (museum)" (forest of body not to appear) comes from "Denkoku-no-ji" (denkokunoji) which ex-Yonezawa feudal lord "Yozan Uesugi" (yozan) left as knowledge of feudal lord. In contrast with first "Kenshin Uesugi who won fame as war-torn country military commander," Yozan (before name "Harunori (spring paste)") that Yozan was "excellent politician", and it was feudal lord of Yonezawa feudal clan at young age 17 years old rebuilt finance of feudal clan which inclined and did people wealthily by developing industry and was person that "there were both thought and the executive ability" who was earnest for education for the next generation. "Denkoku-no-ji" was "speech for feudal lord" (politician), but we inherited mind of Yozan "which we left for people and told and did wealthily", and it was name "Denkoku-no-Mori (museum)".
