  • 六角堂はこの中に

    簡単に書くと、茨城大学の研究所が管理している有料施設です。岡倉天心にまつわる遺跡(長屋門・天心邸・六角堂)と天心記念館がメインになります。長屋門の受付で入場料(基本料金400円)を払う必要がありますが、ここから入らないと六角堂のそばには行けません。入ってすぐの待合室では天心と五浦に関連するVTRが流れているので、初めて行く人は勉強も兼ねて見てから周ると良いと思います。置き傘もここにあるので、天気...

    天心遺跡を管理。杜甫の草堂である六角亭子の構造、朱塗りの外壁と屋根の上の如意宝珠は仏堂の装い、そして内部に床の間と炉を備えた茶室としての役割。六角堂には、中国、インド、日本といったアジアの伝統思想が、ひとつの建物全体で表現されています。
  • こんなところに絶景が。

    太平洋の青い海、左右には大きな岸壁や松。晩年は権力闘争に敗れて半ば隠棲状態だったとも聞く天心ですが、ここに居を構えたのは、やはり美的センスは抜群な人だったのでしょう。門下から一級の日本画家を輩出したのもよくわかる気がします。解説文によれば、北原白秋や、インドのノーベル賞詩人タゴールもここに来て、天心のことを偲んだそうです。
