A TRIP TO VISIT HISTORIC SPOTS IN FUKUI.

                                   We went to Fukui prefecture to visit historic spots.

                                   福井県に歴史を訪ねる旅に出かけました。
                               
Maruoka jo castle tower. 丸岡城の天守閣です。


Maruoka castle tower is the oldest existing one.

現存する日本で1番古い天守閣です。
これで、日本に12ある現存天守閣を全て訪れました。

 この松の木の左にある石碑には、
「一筆啓上 火の用心 お仙泣かすな 馬肥やせ」 とあります。
お仙とは仙千代、後の城主、本多成重のことです。



The roof is covered with stone.

 笏谷石(しゃくだにいし)を使った石の瓦です。

Then we visited Asakura mansion site.
Asakura family was a feudal lord one in the warring states period.

朝倉氏の一乗谷館跡に行きました。

Reconstructed main gate.

再建された唐門です。

The mansion site. 館の跡です。


Suwa mansion site main  garden.

諏訪館跡庭園です。

The upper site of the same garden.

同じ上層の庭園です。

Yodono site garden.

湯殿跡庭園です。

Ichijotani river. 一乗谷川です。

Then we went to Eiheiji Temple. This temple is the one of the most famous 
Zen temple.

次は永平寺です。

The main gate. 山門です。


Chujaku gate. 中雀門です。


Hattou. 法堂です。


Chokusi gate. 勅使門です。

Thanks for visiting this post.

年配の方はこの寺の様に廊下が延々と続く所を帽子を被って歩くと
健康にとても良いそうです。 老化防止になります。

  6. Beautiful photos. I love seeing these historic sites. The mansion must have been huge and the gardens are beautiful. The Zen temple, with those massive trees leading up to the gate, is an impressive sight.

  10. 雪の永平寺、さすが雰囲気がありますね。「長い廊下を帽子を被って歩くと老化防止」というのはとても興味があります。どういう効果なのでしょうか?

      おはようございます。 この言葉は石川雲蝶の芸術で有名な、新潟県の永林寺の住職が言いました。そちらに行かれた時に、お聞き下さい。

  14. 現存天守閣をすべて訪れたなんていかに頻繁にご旅行なさってるかということですね。山などの自然の印象が強いですから。私はまだ松本城、姫路城、彦根城だけで、生きているうちにすべて行けるかも疑問です。笏谷石の瓦はとても重そう、建物への影響を考えると保存のご苦労が想像できます。紅葉から雪へと景色が変化する中、苔むした石は特に冬に存在感を発揮し美しいように感じます。いい旅でしたね。

      こんばんは。昔から歴史散歩が好きで歴史の同好の人たちの会に入ったり、講師付きのツアーに行って大半は一人で見学しました。 最近はそれらから卒業して、レンタカー付きの個人旅行で出かけています。
       この城は、福井大地震で昭和23年に倒壊しています。多くの人々の努力で見る事が出来たという思いが湧いてきます。

  17. あらら、雪が降ってる!寒そう!でも紅葉もまだ見えて、素晴らしい写真になりましたね。天守閣制覇おめでとうございます。そうですね、何か目的、目標があり、またテーマを決めて旅するのはいいアイデアですね。 初詣にはどこに行きますか? 今年もあと残り僅か、ややしんみりとした気分です。

  22. This Maruoka jo castle tower looks so majestic and old yet well maintained till today. I always love the castles in Japan. Someone who is a psychic told me that I was a Japanese in my past life serving at the Kyoto castle. I find that amazing.

    I love this snow covered steps to the Chujaku Gate and Hattou. The photos show nice contrasts.

  23. Hello Minoru, I'm so happy I found your blog! These are GORGEOUS pictures (the ones at night especially)!

    Can you imagine that someone would like a country even if she never travelled to it? Well, that's me and I really like Japan - and I even can't explain myself why :-) I live in Germany and just built a house last year with my husband - and my new garden is in Japanese style! I'm waiting for the spring to see all these azalea and cherries and magnolias blossom, I have several Japanese maple trees and I'm happy I found a nice Niwaki to plant in front of my door!

    If you like, you can have a look at my blog, here are two articles I wrote about liking Japan: http://www.miss-red-fox.de/2014/10/faszination-japan.html and http://www.miss-red-fox.de/2014/12/tourist-in-japan-um-1900-eine.html .The translator widget should help translate the second one, I didn't have time to translate all of them...

    All the best to you, I'll follow your blog!

    Ioana
