Nishie Residence (西江邸)

4.5

Other Historic Site/Building

This important historical and cultural building left from the height of the Edo period is about a 25-minute drive from Nimi Interchange off the Chugoku Expressway. In the Edo period, the Nishie house fell under direct control of the government and became an official location for the local government representative. The structure retains its condition from the Meiji period. After the family lost their positions, they took up work in iron oxide dye (or red ocher) making for paints and pigments, with apparently great success. In addition to experiencing the novel forms, fresh color, and original melanterite designs, you can try red ocher dyeing yourself.

工場制手工業による分業で、世界で初めてベンガラの紅を量産に成功したのが西江邸ほかの三軒。これがまさに柿右衛門赤に繋がり古伊万里の世界進出に繋がったわけです。未だに世界でも群を抜く部品産業の厚みの源流を今日見て鳥肌が立ちました。これがなかったら古伊万里もここまで欧州でもてはやされず。印象派もなかったかもです。こういう背景を聞くと行ってよかったと思います。高梁といっても新見からバスの方が便利です。

          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
