令和4年(2022年)12月下旬に旧中西家住宅へ伺いました。

この邸宅は、毎年春と秋に「特別公開」を開催し、現在は特別コレクションとともに、私のデジタル浮世絵作品を展示しています。

旧中西家住宅は旧来から文化人を迎えてきたことから「吹田吉志部文人墨客迎賓館」として市への賓客を歓迎する目的で平成19年(2007年)122日に中西家から寄贈され設置されたそうです。

旧中西家住宅の案内冊子によれば(以下、転載)~中西家は江戸時代には大庄屋を務めていました。約1,000坪の屋敷地に、文政9(1826)年建造の主家、長屋門、内蔵(米蔵)、キザラ(木小屋)などの建物が建ち、江戸後期の大庄屋の屋敷構えを、ほぼ当時のまま伝えています。また主屋前面に造られた庭園は、作庭の位置や造園の技法に特色をもっていて、稀有なものといわれており、平成25811日に、国の登録記念物(名勝)に登録されました。旧中西家住宅のほぼ全ての建物は、吹田市指定有形文化財に指定され、同時に国の登録有形文化財に登録されていて、吹田市の長い歴史と深い文化を伝える貴重な建物です。~(転載終り)とあります。

特に、平成25年(2013年)811日に、国の登録記念物(名勝)に登録された主屋の南側にある「東の庭園」は庭園中央に掘り下げた人口低地を持つ特徴のある庭園です。

今年は秋の高温が続ましたが、その後急に秋が深まったこともあって美しい紅葉となっているときいていました。例年であれば11月末には伺っているところですが、西高東低の冬型の気圧配置の冬らしい気候になってやっと撮影に伺いました。

紅葉の時期に伺うのは3回目ですが、何度みてもこの庭園の美しさは目を奪われてしまいます。暫くは撮影をしないで眺めていました。今年は「西の庭園の奥にある亭の近くにある侘助が美しい花を沢山咲かせている」と伺ったので朝露の残る白い侘助を撮影しました。

I had visited to the Former Nakanishi Residence in Suita-City, Osaka prefecture at early December 2022. This residence is held the "Special Public Open" in spring and in autumn in every year, for exhibiting the special collection, nowadays with my works, which I had donated at December 2020.

Former Nakanishi Residence had been donated to Suita-City as the "Kishibe Guesthouse for Writers and Artists" by Nakanishi Family at January 1st 2007. They say by an official booklet "Nakanishi family was a village official in the Edo era (1603-1868) of Japan. The residence had built in 1826 and that residence has a main house, a Nagaya-mon gate and a wood-shed in the about 3,300 house site. That is been remaining architecture of the Edo era. The Japanese garden at the front of a main house (East Garden) is very rare garden and that is as a national-designated site of scenic beauty in August 11 2013. All building of this residence is as a designation tangible cultural property of Suita-City and as a registered tangible cultural property of Japan. That is a precious building conveying history having a long Suita-City and deep culture.

Normally, I would have visited at the end of November, but I finally came to shoot when the winter-like climate with a winter-type atmospheric pressure distribution with high west and low east was reached.

This is the third time I have visited during the fall foliage season, but no matter how many times I visit, the beauty of this garden will captivate my eyes. I just watched without taking pictures for a while.

This year, I heard that “Wabisuke' camellia near the arbor in the back of the western garden has many beautiful flowers blooming,'' so I took a picture of the white wabisuke' camellia with morning dew.

I thank to all staff of the residence and all people who cooperated.

I have Osaka Tenmangu Shrine and many images, including the Tenjin Festival. I am waiting for your contact with the usage contract of the copyrighted work.

I will start consulting on traditional Japanese culture and festivals for foreign people. Nowadays, many Japanese people don't know about it, and they don't have many opportunities to get involved. I am in a unique position to be involved through photography. In fact, I often receive questions from foreign people, when I am In an interval taking photographs.

I am looking forward to your message.
