Tomioka Hachimangu Shrin to Fukagawa Fudo-do temple

Fukagawa to appear as the stage of period novels such as Shotaro Ikenami and Ichiriki Yamamoto, Shuhei Fujisawa well. I strolled in downtown area, Fukagawa of Edo this time.
Get off at Toei Subway "Monzen-Nakacho Station", and is approximately five minutes on foot; to Tomioka Hachimangu shrine. It is greatest Yahata in Edo when the Tomioka Hachimangu shrine was founded for Kanei era four years. It is got close to all as "Yahata of Fukagawa". The festival of our shrine is counted among one of the Edo three biggest Festival as the Fukagawa Hachimangu Festival, and heroic Water Festival by each 53 parishioner town miniature shrines is known. There is an image of surveyor, Tadataka Ino who edited a Japanese map in the Edo era as soon as it enters the precincts, the storage of miniature shrine where the best gold miniature shrine in Japan is displayed,and Yokozuna sumo wrestler monument (Shinto shrine of the Edo admission charged sumo show origin) which sculptd the name of the each generation yokozuna,and it is indicated to be a Shinto shrine with the history.
In addition, what drop in because there is the shop which can taste fresh short-necked clam-based "Fukagawa meal" (Bukkake stewed with miso and the meal which was cooked with soy sauce)known as a gourmet of Fukagawa in the precincts is good. I go and worship in Tomioka Hachimangu Shrin and go to Fukagawa Fudo-do.
Fukagawa Fudo-do is Tokyo branch temple of Daihonzan Naritasan Shinsyoji in Narita-shi, Chiba and is got close to "Ohudo-sama in Fukagawa" for a long time. The foundation comes with Genroku era 16 years (1703), and it is said to what a principal idol of the Mt. Narita is presented in the Edo era, and was seen in particular that it begins. In addition, a flag of "human feeling Fukagawa divine favor street" is raised on the approach to a shrine following Fudo-do, and an atmosphere to be lined with a Japanese sweet shop or foods boiled down in soy shops is the mall that there is.

Kiyosumi Garden which projects the history on the surface of the water

I arrive at Kiyosumi Garden from Fukagawa Fudo-do toward the north in a Kiyosumi street for approximately 20 minutes. This garden is introduced into another view with the mansion trace of business magnate of Edo, Bunzaemon Kinokuniya, and Yataro Iwasaki acquires this residence ground in 1878 and opens the place "Fukagawa friendship garden" to invite consolation and the distinguished guest of the employee to, and was contributed to Tokyo and maintained afterwards as "Kiyosumi Garden". The garden is "an excursion-type garden with groves and ponds garden", there is the large pond where three Nakajima was arranged for in the center, on the surface of the water an island and a building of the sukiya style, and exquisite stones collected from the whole country like bluish rock of Izu andesite, Iyo and Kishu, as for the granites of Bicchu and Sanuki, are arranged for the pavement and a bridge, a dry landscape Japanese garden.
It was appointed in the natural beauty spot of Tokyo in 1979.

Fukagawa Edo Museum to Basho Museum

I arrive at Fukagawa Edo Museum from the garden for approximately five minutes on foot. A state of Fukagawa of the Edo era is reproduced here in a building of the size of the original. I can experienced the cityscape such as the manure wholesale dealer, Storehouse of the big store, fruit and vegetable shop, the street where rice dealers line up, boat houses and a boat ship, the canal where a fire watchtower is built, Botehuri (the merchant who carries the thing which hung the basket with the product in both sticks on its shoulder on a shoulder) and craftsman, the tenement houses where a boatman lives in, and became the sense that skidded in time in the Edo era.
After having experienced Edo Fukagawa, I go to Basho Museum. There is the Basho Memorial along the Sumida River when I cross the Mannen bridge characterized by the arch-formed railing. Basho Matsuo who is famous for a haiku moves to this ground, Fukagawa from Edo Nihonbashi, and took a trip to domestic each place based in this ground and was the haiku poet who is great in a history of literature that edited an account of a trip and haikus such as "Nozarashi-kikou" "Kashima-kikou" "Oku-no-hosomichi". In addition, you can remember Basho more if there is "Basho Inari shrine" "Bashoan Memorial Garden" near here and observes these in conjunction with a memorial.
