(Kyoto-15/Daikakuji Temple-Kyoto craft beer breweries)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food tour

嵯峨の大覚寺へ。794年に平安京遷都を行なった桓武天皇の次の代、嵯峨天皇が平安初期に離宮嵯峨院として開基した、皇室ゆかりの寺。

嵯峨天皇空海との出会いを経て、高野山、東寺に続いて真言宗大覚寺派の寺院に。正式には「旧嵯峨御所大本山大覚寺」と称し、嵯峨御所とも呼ばれる。

To Daikakuji Temple in Saga area.  The temple, which is related to the Royal Family, was established by Emperor Saga, who was the next generation of Emperor Kanmu who moved the capital to Kyoto in 794, as the Imperial Palace Sagain in the early Heian period.  After the meeting of Emperor Saga and Kukai, the palace became a temple of the Daikakuji school of the Shingon sect following the establishment of Koyasan and Toji temples.  Its formal name is "Former Saga Imperial Palace Daikakuji Temple" and is simply known as the Saga Imperial Palace.

明治時代初頭まで、代々天皇もしくは皇統の方が門跡(住職)を務めた格式高い門跡寺院

一般の入口と正式な入口。

Until the beginning of the Meiji era, it was the prestigious temple where the emperor or royal family served as the chief priest.  General entrance and official entrance.

駐車したクルマの祈祷(大覚寺駐車場の駐車券を提出)や、写経を行う「五大堂」。写経はリモートでも可。

"Godaido" building where can pray safe drive for the parked car (submit a parking ticket from the Daikakuji parking lot) and hand copy Buddhism sutras.  Copying Buddhism sutras can be done remotely by mail.

五大堂のすぐ脇に広がる「大沢の池」。嵯峨天皇離宮嵯峨院の造営にあたり唐の洞庭湖を模して造られた為、庭湖とも呼ばれる。当時は最先端の文化の発信地だったらしい。

遠目に見える蓮は「名古曾(なこそ)」と呼ばれる古代蓮で、大覚寺独自の品種だそう。

"Osawa Pond" is located right next to Godaido.  It is also called Niwako (garden pond) because Emperor Saga followed the model from Tang Ting Lake in the construction of the Imperial Palace Sagain.  It seems that at that time the palace was the leader of cutting-edge culture.
The lotus that can be seen in the distance is an ancient lotus called "Nakoso", and it seems to be a unique variety of Daikakuji.

嵯峨天皇が舟を大沢池に浮かべ、文化人・貴族の方々と中秋の名月を賞でられたことから始まった「観月の夕べ」。今も毎年秋に執り行われる事で知られ、今年も規模を縮小し10月1日に開催される。華やかで雅な空間。

"The moon-viewing evening" began when Emperor Saga floated a boat on Osawa Pond and appreciated the mid-autumn moon with sophisticated people and aristocrats.  The event is still held every fall, and this year it will be held on October 1st with a reduced scale.  A gorgeous and elegant space.

京都市の中心部に戻り、酒造「キンシ正宗」が運営する「京都町屋麦酒醸造所」へ。日本酒の醸造所は伏見に移転したが、ビールの醸造は中京区で行っている。

Returned to the center of Kyoto City and headed to the "Kyoto Machiya Beer Brewery" operated by "Kinshi Masamune" sake brewery.  The sake brewing plant moved to Fushimi area, but the beer brewing is still in Nakagyo Ward.

小規模のブリュアリーはコロナの影響でビアバーも販売も規模を縮小し、平日は行っていない。せっかく訪問したということで、中の醸造タンクを見せて頂いた。近くの「山岡酒店」で「シルクのヴァイツェン」を購入して帰る。

Due to corona, small-scale breweries have reduced beer bar or sales operations, and they are not open weekdays.  As visited the brewery they showed the brewing tanks inside.  Bought "Silky Weizen" at nearby "Yamaoka Liquor Store".

Ichijoji Mosaic Golden Ale bought at Yamaoka Liquor store.  A delicious beer with a moderate bitterness and hop aroma.  Think it's a perfect beer.  Yamaoka Liqor Store has everything.
