閑谷学校


建築配置と山谷敷地とランドスケープ、蒲鉾石垣(石だけで積層。だから草が生えない。何故蒲鉾型なのかは諸説があり、普通の塀立ちだと築城と誤解されるから丸くしたという説、儒教学校など韓国や中国からの影響)など絶妙な風景を創出していて、これは見事。
今の時期は鶯の声、沢筋の音と冷気の風、新緑の薄緑のテントのような葉や芽吹の木々、おそらく、環境やランドスケープの意味を学びと一体化する必要があると考え、教育だけでは人は変わらず、環境でもひとは育ち変わるという信念があったと思う。

Architectural layout with mountains and valleys and landscapes, lenticular shape stone walls as well as other elements create exquisite landscapes, this is magnificent indeed.
(laminated layers made only of stones, That’s why grass doesn’t grow. There are various theories as to why stones have lenticular shape, including the influence from Korea and China through Confucian schools and also the theory that it was to avoid misunderstanding between ordinary walls and castle walls.)

In this season, the voice of nightingales, sounds from the valley and the cold wind, leaves and buds from the trees that look like fresh light green tents, probably, I thought that it is necessary to learn and integrate the meaning of environment and landscape, and I think I had the conviction that people will not change only by education, but that people grow up and change also with their environment.

旧金比羅金丸座建築/The Old Konpira Oshibai Kabuki Theater (Kanamaruza)

旧金比羅金丸座建築

旧金比羅金丸座建築


木之下晃さんの芝居小屋シリーズのお話を聞いてから、気になっていた旧金比羅金丸座建築。木造三階でハイサイドライトの障子窓と雨戸で光量を調節する。通路もないギッチギチの升席、竹のぶどうだな、くぐり戸の入口、通風もあり季節のいいこの時期だけの歌舞伎大芝居。
浅石さんが一階の升席を予約してくれ真正面のとってもいい席。さすがです。拍子木が鳴り始めした!あんまと泥棒 鷺娘 玩辞楼十二曲の上封印切。

After hearing the story of Akira Kinoshita’s “Playhouse Series”, I got curious about the architecture of the old Konpira Kanamaru-za. A three-story wooden structure for which the amount of light is adjusted with the Shoji windows of the high-side light and sliding wooden shutters.

 In this Grand Kabuki Theatre available only for the period when season offers good , there are box seats are super-tight and without any passage, bamboos’ grapevine treillis, and a side door entrance.
The seats booked was a box seats on the first floor, with a very nice seat right in front of the stage. That’s awesome. Wooden clappers start to play their music. The Masseur and the Thief, Heron maiden, first part of the “Fuin Giri” (breaking of seals) in the 12 roles of Ganjiro .
