(Kyoto-37/Yase)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

よく晴れた初夏の日の午後、比叡山の麓・八瀬へドライブ。最初に「洛北蓮華寺」へ。入り口から書院に続く素敵な石畳。青紅葉からの木洩れ陽が、息を飲む程美しい。

On a beautiful early summer afternoon, drove to Yase, at the foot of Mt. Hiei.  First went to Rakuhoku Rengeji Temple.  A lovely stone pavement leads from the entrance to the Shoin. The green leaves in the sunshine were breathtakingly beautiful.

書院から池泉鑑賞式庭園を望む。建築に当たっては狩野探幽、木下順庵、隠元禅師など当時の著名文化人が協力したと伝えられ、高野川支流の水が満ちる池に鶴亀の島を配した庭は、石川丈山(いしかわじょうざん)作と伝えられる。

八瀬比叡山口から程近い「瑠璃光院」へ。歴史は新しく、明治の実業家田中源太郎の別荘を、没後数奇屋大工棟梁・中村外二が大改築。2005年に浄土真宗東本願寺派の寺院となる。

Went to Rurikoin Temple, not far from Yase Heizanguchi Station. The temple was originally the villa of Gentaro Tanaka, a businessman in the Meiji era (1868-1912), but after his death, it was rebuilt by Sotoji Nakamura, a master carpenter.  In 2005, it became a temple of the Higashi Honganji sect of the Jodo Shinshu sect.
