Neagari-matsu (根上松)

4.0

Other Natural Terrain

This black pine tree is one of the Kenrokuen garden’s famous sights. Its name literally means “rising root pine,” and the 15-meter tall tree combined with its 40 roots of varying sizes rising as much as two meters off the ground is a stunning sight to behold. According to records, Maeda Nariyasu, the 13th lord of Kaga Domain, originally piled up a mound of earth and planted the tree on top of it; as such, its roots were originally covered by soil, but as it grew the roots became exposed. Also serving as the derivation of the former town of Neagari, in 1978 it was designated the town’s first Cultural Property. Today, a cedar bark-lined path passes by the tree, and many visitors strolling the garden take a moment to stop and admire the view.

兼六園のメインのみどころのひとつです。名前のとおり松の根っこが地面から盛り上がっていて、見えていました。また、松からのびる横の枝もとても立派で、重みで折れてしまうのを防ぐためなのか、たくさんの柱で支えられていました。

13代藩主・前田斉泰が土を盛り上げてクロマツを植え、後に土を除いて根を露出させたもの。
巨大な盆栽のようなとても美しい松でした。樹高10m、幹周3.86mもあるそうです。
圧巻の迫力ですね。しばらく見とれてしまいました。

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
