Review of Mori Ogai Memorial Museum

Reviewed:2019/11/12 軍服姿の銅像
森鴎外が陸軍軍医総監であったことは良く知っていました。しかし、文豪と言うイメージが強く、なかなか軍服の写真を見つけるのは難しいです。ここでは入口に軍服姿の銅像があり、それだけでも感慨深いものがありました。
Reviewed:2019/11/08 鴎外が十才で上京するまで暮らした家 川向こうには西周の家
鴎外の愛読者として是非訪れたかったところです。鴎外が生まれ、十才で上京するまで暮らした家が記念館になっています。森家の家系や鴎外の生涯についての資料がたくさん展示されていました。子供たちへの愛情あふれる手紙など興味深く読みました。窓から川向こうにある西周の家が見え、両家の近さを感じました。
Reviewed:2019/05/08 再発見
森鴎外のことは「高瀬舟」くらいしか知りませんでしたが、ここを訪れ鴎外の人となりに触れ俄然興味が湧きました。今、「雁」を読んでいます。

建物は美しく、居心地も良いです。隣接する鴎外の生家もきれいに保存されています。

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan’s oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
