Minakata Kumagusu Archives南方熊楠顕彰館

4.0

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

This facility houses books and other materials that belonged to Kumagusu Minakata, a modern scholar of natural history, theology, and folklore. It is next to the residence he inhabited in his later years in Nakayashiki Town, Tanabe City, Wakayama Prefecture. Inside, you’ll find exhibits that explain his accomplishments, life, the region, and so on. The second floor contains a study and an area where you can read reproduced materials. The copy of Kumagusu’s resume, written on a roll of 7.8 meter-long-paper in fine print, is a must-see. Entry is free, though entry to the adjoining residence requires a fee.

南方熊楠の名を知ったのは随分以前に見た東宝現代劇75人の会による演劇でした-そこに描かれた熊楠と心を病んだ愛息との交流がとてもピュアで胸に迫り、いつかこの地を訪れたいと思い続けてきました。

先ず顕彰館を見てから隣接するお邸に向かった、真夏で庭には樹々が生い茂り草花が一杯、落ち着いた雰囲気のお座敷にはあたかも熊楠先生が研究中という呈で資料がそこここに広げられていて誠に好もしい、古い井戸端周りには古...

南方熊楠憲章館の横に生家が残っています。元は武士の家があった場所に大将時代に大改装を行い、不思議な感じがします。瓦を土塀に埋め込んだ塀が囲んでおります。熊楠の遺族が市に寄贈しており、彼の功績をもっと広げたいものです。

南方熊楠が晩年の25年間、住んだ家だそうで、遺族が、田辺市に寄付し、大正時代の様相に改修した後に公開されたそうです。

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country's most delicious ramen noodles.
