(Kyoto-61/Maruyama Park)日本美味しいもの巡り Japan delicious food and wine tour

今日は東山界隈を散歩。まず枝垂れ桜で有名な「円山公園」に。京都市内で最も古い公園。八坂神社に隣接している為、お詣りがてら中を通って「ねねの道」に抜けたりと、周辺を歩く事が多い。

この地は、江戸時代まで平地と奥の桃山断層崖から成る現在とは異なる地形だったが、明治に名作庭家・小川治兵衛と名建築家・武田五一のコンビが緩やかな斜面を造成し公園として整備。今は市民や観光客が憩い、賑わう。

Today went for a walk in the Higashiyama area.  First, went to "Maruyama Park", famous for its weeping cherry trees.  The oldest park in Kyoto.  Since the park is adjacent to Yasaka Shrine, often walk around the area, passing through the park to "Nene no Michi".
Until the Edo period (1603-1868), this area had a different topography than today, consisting of a flat plain and the Momoyama fault cliffs at the back, but in the Meiji period (1868-1912), the famous gardener Jihei Ogawa and the famous architect Goichi Takeda created a gentle slope and developed it into a park.  The park is now a popular place for citizens and tourists to relax and enjoy.

公園の上部には有名料理店「御料理 未在(みざい)」、ミシュラン3つ星。名前は聞いていたが前を通るのは初めて。

At the top of the park was a famous restaurant, "Mizai", with three Michelin stars.  Heard of it, but the first time to pass by it.

さらにその上に構える「料亭 左阿弥」(さあみ)。かつて円山公園が整備される前、江戸時代には眺望の良い崖の急斜面に眼阿弥(がんあみ)・蓮阿弥(れんあみ)・也阿弥(やあみ)・左阿弥・正阿弥(しょうあみ)・重阿弥(じゅうあみ)の6つの料亭が贅を尽くし競い合っていたという。現在残るのは左阿弥のみ。

尚、「也阿弥」は明治時代にホテルとなり、その後、現在の京都ホテルへとつながる。

On the top of the cliff, there was a restaurant called "Sa-Ami". In the Edo period, before Maruyama Park was built, there used to be six restaurants on the steep slope of the cliff with a great view: Gan-Ami, Ren-Ami, Ya-Ami, Sa-Ami, Shou-Ami and Ju-Ami.  Today, only Sa-Ami remains.
Ya-ami became a hotel in the Meiji era (1868-1912) and later became the present Kyoto Hotels.

少し下って東本願寺の大谷祖廟の傍にある「菊乃井」。これもミシュラン3つ星。

円山公園の奥は、昔から続く京都のグルメタウンだった。

A little further down the road was "Kikunoi", located beside the Otani Ancestral Shrine of Higashi Honganji.  It also has three Michelin stars.
The area behind Maruyama Park has long been a gourmet town in Kyoto.

祇園に、いなり寿司の専門店「釣狐」がオープンしていた。銘菓「おたべ」を製造販売する株式会社美十が運営。美十はスイーツでは茶の「祇園辻利」とコラボ、いなり寿司では「嵯峨豆腐 森嘉」とコラボしているようだ。

"Tsurigitsune", a shop specializing in inari sushi, had opened in Gion.  It is operated by Biju Corporation, which manufactures and sells the famous confectionary "Otabep".  Biju seems to have collaborated with "Gion Tsujiri" of tea for sweets, and "Saga Tofu Morika" for inarizushi.
