今回初めて霞城の中に入った。
県立博物館があって『転換点』展をやっていた。

幕末に動乱があって、統一山形への転換点となった、ということであろうか、同盟が締結されてすぐに山形藩は幕府に加担する賊軍となり、賊軍は戦争の上手な官軍に徹底的に叩かれる。上手く立ち回る人もいて、ifがあればどうなっていたかといろいろと考えさせられる。

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
