Rosanjin's Iroha Thatched Hut魯山人寓居跡 いろは草庵

Other Historic Site/Building

The site where the great artist Rosanjin stayed for a half year starting in the fall of 1915. Iroha is located in the Yamashiro Onsen hot spring resort area in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The structure was originally a detached villa which belong to the long-standing Yoshinoya ryokan inn; the main building was erected in the early Meiji period. The site is open to the general public, and the workroom decorated with plaques inscribed with calligraphy, study, and living room with sunken hearth are preserved in the same sate as when Rosanjin was in residence. The site’s warehouse has been converted into a display space which is continuously used to present special exhibitions.

魯山人が陶芸を学んだ地、山代温泉。芸術家を応援する山代の旦那衆。
この草案で看板を彫り、九谷焼を須田菁華に学ぶ。
天才の所以か、たった7ヶ月の滞在であの独自の世界に到達する。
素晴らしい芸術の原点。

小さいながらもよく手入れされた日本家屋です。

中庭を眺めながら振舞われる加賀棒茶 (九谷焼の湯呑みです!)と金平糖が最高で、まったりとしたひと時を過ごせました。
Reviewed:2018/06/01 庭を愛でながらお茶をいただく
魯山人がまだ若かった頃、この地に住んで各旅館などの看板彫りなどをして腕を磨いた家。元々は旅館の主人の趣味の家として、様々な人とお茶を嗜んだり芸術や骨董について語り合ったり、酒や食事を楽しんでいたところを、魯山人の腕を見込んで主人が住まわせた家だそうで、随所に贅が凝らされています。そんな話をガイドさんが聞かせてくれます。端正な庭を眺めながらお茶をいただいてほっこりするのもいい時間です。

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.
