(Kyoto-29/Ohara Sanzenin)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

好天の京都、大原・三千院門跡へ。天台五ヶ室門跡の一つ。国宝の阿弥陀三尊を安置する往生極楽院(重文)が建つ有清園は苔が素晴らしい。春は桜とシャクナゲ、夏はアジサイ、秋の紅葉、そして雪景色と移ろいゆく四季が美しく、人気の観光スポット。

A beautiful day in Kyoto, went to Sanzenin Monzeki Temple in Ohara, one of the five Tendai Monzekis, where the head priest is from the imperial family.  The Yuseien Garden, where the Oosei Gokurakuin Temple (Important Cultural Properties) enshrining the three statues of Amida (National Treasure) is located, had wonderful moss garden.  It is a popular tourist spot because of the beauty of the changing seasons: cherry blossoms and rhododendrons in spring, hydrangeas in summer, autumn leaves, and snowy scenery.

コロナによる緊急事態宣言下、殆どの店舗が休業、大原は訪れる人も少なく静か。

Most stores are closed due to the state of emergency declared by COVID, and Ohara was quiet with few visitors.

この時期の京都の新緑は、とにかく目に眩しい。日本に京都があって良かった、と何やらコマーシャルのコピーを思い出すひととき。

The fresh greenery of Kyoto at this time of year is simply dazzling.  It reminded of a TVCM that said, "We are lucky to have Kyoto in Japan.

ランチ場所を探しがてら、三千院道を少し下る。京都野菜が美味しい評判の店、志野松門に行ってみたが、やはり休業中。

Walked down Sanzenin Road a bit to find a place for lunch.  Visited "Shino Shomon" on Sanzenin Road, a restaurant that serves delicious lunches with Kyoto vegetables, and found it was closed due to the state of emergency.

お酒は、新潟・尾畑酒造の純米無濾過生原酒と、新潟・久須美酒造の純米吟醸に。米どころ新潟の日本酒は、直感で選んでも料理に寄り添う食中酒に最適のお酒が多い。

静かな古都を堪能した一日。

For sake, bought Junmai unfiltered undiluted sake from Obata Shuzo Brewery in Niigata and Junmai Ginjo from Kusumi Shuzo Brewery in Niigata.  Niigata makes good rice, so its sake is the best.  Even if choose based on intuition, there are many sakes that go well with foods.  It was a day to enjoy the quiet old city.
