まず萩の松陰神社へ。吉田松陰は単に明治維新の思想的リーダーではなく、過激な革命者、北朝天皇制の転覆論者でもあったようだ。

First, to Shoin Shrine in Hagi.  Yoshida Shoin was not merely the ideological leader of the Meiji Restoration, but seems a radical revolutionary and overthrowist of Emperor System of Northern Dynasty.

本殿。松陰氏は150年ほど前に道半ばで処刑されたが既に神格化されている。平成天皇今上天皇(皇太子)が行幸行啓されていた。南朝系の天皇としては特別の恩義があるのだろう。

Main Shrine.  Shoin was executed in the middle of the road 150 years ago, but has already been deified.  Heisei Emperor and Current Emperor (Crown Prince) were visiting the shrine.  As Emperors of Southern Dynasty, they must have special debts of gratitude.

松陰神社のすぐ前の吉田松陰の実家。松陰が密航に失敗し幽閉されていた。

Yoshida Shoin's family home just in front of Shoin Shrine.  Shoin was imprisoned there after his failed attempt to smuggle himself out of Japan.

周防にある伊藤博文の実家へ。立派な洋館。伊藤氏は農家出身で幼名は林利助。足軽の伊藤家に入り、吉田松陰に引き立てられ、明治天皇を誕生させたとされ、最高の権力者となった。ハルビンにて朝鮮人に暗殺された。玄孫の松本剛明氏は、今も兵庫県選出の衆議院議員(麻生派)。

To the family home of Ito Hirobumi in Suo.  A magnificent Western-style house.  Ito was from a farming family, originally named Hayashi Risuke.  He joined the Ito family of soldiers, was promoted by Yoshida Shoin, was said to have realized Meiji Emperor and became the most powerful man of the era.  He was assassinated by a Korean in Harbin.  His grandson, Takeaki Matsumoto, is a politician of Lower House (Aso faction) from Hyogo Prefecture.

敷地内には故安倍晋三氏により寄贈された石碑。弟の岸信夫氏の選挙区。偶然にも伊藤氏と同様、朝鮮系の宗教絡みの凶弾に倒れた。

A stone monument donated by the late Shinzo Abe on the premises. The electoral district of his younger brother, Kishi Nobuo. Coincidentally, like Mr. Ito, he was killed by a bullet related to religious affiliation with Korea.

長州出身の明治天皇(122)の出生地とも言われる「西円寺」。浄土真宗本願寺派。力士隊長の伊藤博文(林利助)の下で屈強となった青年は、吉田松陰派のクーデターで明治天皇となり、南朝系と称し、伊藤博文など長州出身者とともに明治時代を作ったと噂される。

"Saienji Temple" is said the birthplace of Meiji Emperor (122) of Choshu.  Jodo Shinshu Honganji sect.  The young man became strong under Captain Ito Hirobumi (Hayashi Risuke) became Meiji Emperor in the coup by the Yoshida Shoin faction, described as a Southern Dinastic descent and controlled the Meiji era together with Ito Hirobumi and companies from Choshu.

こうした話はあくまで噂だが、京都ローカルの天皇が、突然、屈強なオール日本の天皇に変貌。朝敵だった長州が巨額の資金を手にして官軍となり、戊辰戦争などのクーデターに勝利。長州は明治政府の主導権を手中にし、現在に至るまで最多の首相を輩出している。

この社会構造は1945年に一旦終了しかけたが、A級戦犯指定だった岸氏とともに復活。

出雲は古代神話への旅だったが、萩は近代神話への旅だった。

The story is only rumors, but the Kyoto-local emperor suddenly changed into a formidable all-Japanese emperor.  Choshu had been an emperor's enemy became an emperor's force with huge funds and won the coup like Boshin War.  Choshu took control of the Meiji government and has produced the largest number of prime ministers to date.
This structure almost ended in 1945, but for some reason it was revived with Kishi, once designated a Class A war criminal but released.

The Izumo trip was to an ancient mythology, but the Hagi trip was to a modern mythology.
