Among Kitamae ship owners, Tohemon Kiya and Gohei Zeniya of Kanazawa differed in background from other ship owners of Kaga.

Both families were engaged in the lumber shipping business and with their riches made by that business they worked hard as Kitamae ship owners.

Kiya made a great deal of profit from lumber shipping business with the Tohoku districts in the 18th century.

Later, Gohei Zeniya emerged, from Miyanokoshi, present-day Kanaiwa of Kanazawa City, and he succeeded to the lumber shipping trade with the Tohoku districts as sole agent.
At his peak period he expanded his business, not only throughout Japan but also overseas.
