  • Quaint, not a must-see

    You can freely enter this residence. When I went there were only a couple other people there. So I had the house to myself for the most part. It was a peaceful place. The condition was just ok...
  • 結局、ここにはほとんど住んでいない

    新婚の家と言いつつ、賢治はこの家には殆ど帰ってこず新婚時代はなかったのでは。昔で言えば立派な家なのであろう。東北の日差しと風と雲を、この家からどれだけ眺められたのか。
  • 今も住宅街の中にあります。

    この啄木新婚の家は盛岡駅東口から北東に約10分程度の場所にあります。啄木が新婚生活を送った当時のままで木造の平屋づくりです。当時の生活の様子がわかるように今も保存公開しています。
