深緑のころ Season of the deep green leaves

 深緑のころ

木々の緑が美しい初夏に旧邸御室(京都市右京区御室)に行きました。京福電気鉄道(嵐電)北野線 御室仁和寺駅から徒歩5分程度の場所です。

今回は旧邸御室“深緑の薫”特別公開ということで、5月の特別公開は3年ぶりだそうです。

旧邸御室は公式ホームページによれば~(以下引用します)昭和12年に建てられた旧邸御室。数寄屋造りの見事な装飾が随所に見られる郊外邸宅建築ですが、その設計者および建設目的は不明。邸宅のすぐ南側にある天皇ゆかりの門跡寺院「仁和寺」にそっと隠れるように佇んでおり、関係性は明らかになってはいませんが格式の高さを受け継いでいるかのような趣を備えています。~(以下略)とあります。

22畳の開放的な大広間には花梨材の一枚板テーブルがあり、表面に漆を何層も塗り鏡面となっているため、大広間からみえる日本庭園が映り込んでいました。

この景色を目当てに来ている方が大勢おられたようで、盛んに写真を撮影しておられました。

公式ホームページの説明にもあったようにどのような意図を以って作られたのかわからないようですが、純粋に美しさを追求した様子は観ている人を圧倒するものがありました。

今回は嵐電の「一日乗車券と旧邸御室入館チケット」を購入したので、そのまま龍安寺を参拝してきました。

龍安寺へ嵐電で行くのは初めてでした。嵐電 龍安寺駅から徒歩約10分程度の場所にあります。

龍安寺は公式ホームページによれば~(前略、以下引用します)その創建は宝徳二年(1450)、足利将軍の管領職にあった細川勝元が徳大寺の山荘を譲り受け、妙心寺第五世義天玄承(詔)禅師を開山に迎え創建しました。~とあります。~(中略)~明応八年(1499)には方丈が建立され、石庭もこの時に築造されたと伝えられています。~(以下略)とあります。

有名な枯山水庭園「龍安寺の石庭」は、方丈庭園であり国の史跡・特別名勝に指定されています。

また、寺院として平成6年(1994年)ユネスコの世界文化遺産「古都京都の文化財」に登録されています。

他に、池泉回遊式庭園 鏡容池(国指定名勝)があり、平安時代にこの場所に徳大寺があった頃からのものであるそうです。

修学旅行で訪れる先として定番であり、多くの学生が来ていました。私も小学校の修学旅行で来ています。

石庭が有名なのでとても人出が多かったのですが、鏡容池は殆ど人もいない中で青紅葉を中心とした美しい風景を堪能できました。

 

各施設、寺院の関係者及び当日お会いした皆さまありがとうございました。

Season of the deep green leaves

 

Single plate table made of Chinese quince in the large hall


I went to Kyutei Omuro (Ukyo-Ku, Kyoto City) in early summer when the greenery leaves of trees were beautiful. That is located at about a 5-minute walk from Keifuku Electric Railroad (Randen) Kitano Line Omuro Ninnaji Station.

This time, the special opening of Kyutei Omuro "Fragrance of the deep green leaves" was held after 3 years.

They say from the official website, “Kyutei Omuro was built in 1945. It is a suburban mansion building with splendid decorations of Sukiya style, but its designer and purpose of construction are unknown. It stands quietly hidden behind the emperor-related monzeki temple "Ninna-ji" just south of the residence, and although the relationship has not been clarified. But it seems to have inherited the height of the prestige.”


View of Japanese Garden

In the 22-tatami mat room, there was a single plate table made of Chinese quince, and the surface looked likes mirror because of many layers of urushi coating, so the Japanese garden seen from the large hall was reflected. There were many people came to see only this scenery, and they were actively taking pictures. They explained on the official website, it seems that you do not know what kind of intention it was built, but the pure pursuit of beauty attracts the viewer.

South entrance of Ryoanji Temple

This time, I bought Randen's "One-day pass and Kyutei Omuro admission ticket", so I went to Ryoanji Temple as it was.

It was my first time to went to Ryoanji Temple by Randen. It was located at about a 10-minute walk from Ryoanji Station of Randen.

They say from the official website of Ryoanji Temple, "It was founded in 1450. When Katsumoto Hosokawa, who was regent of General Ashikaga, took over the cottage of Tokudaiji Temple, and It was founded by Zen Master Giten Gensho (5th chief priest of Myoshinji Temple). It is said that Hojo was built in 1499, and the stone garden was also made at this time.”


Dry Landscape Garden


The famous dry garden "Ryoanji Rock Garden" is a Hojo Garden and is designated as a Historic site designated by the national government and National Site of Scenic Beauty. In addition, it was registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site "Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto" in 1994.

In addition, there is a Japanese garden with a pond in the center, Kyoyochi Pond (National Site of Scenic Beauty), which dates to the time when Tokudaiji was in this place during the Heian period.

It was a standard destination for school trips, and there were many students, and I have come as an elementary school trip.

The stone garden is very famous, there were a lot of people, but I was able to enjoy the beautiful scenery with green leaves in the Kyoyochi Pond, because of few people.

 

I thank you for everyone.
