宮島踊りの夕べ
Miyajima Odori

18 19 17

宮島踊りの夕べに行ってきました。500年ほど前から伝わる優美な踊りの和に子供たちも惹きこまれていきました。世界中の観光客の皆さんも加わり楽しいひと時でした。

Obon is a Buddhist event occurring from the 13th to 16th of August to hold a memorial service to the spirits of ancestors.
Bon odori is the dance for holding a memorial service for the dead during the Bon period.
It was so beautiful looking at people dancing together in a circle.Obon is a Buddhist event occurring from the 13th to 16th of August to hold a memorial service to the spirits of ancestors.

当館にもう一つ新しい部屋が仲間入りです。茶室の要素を取り入れ、ロフトには大正時代からこの家を守り続けてきてくれた大きな松の梁が悠々と姿を表し、天井にはすす竹が敷き詰められ、めずらしい花梨の木やふすまの桑淵にしぼり杉、お風呂からは檜が香り、西条の加茂鶴の酒倉で長年活躍したはしごがひょろりと顔を出し・・・どこを見ても驚きと発見がある、私たちの思いがいっぱい詰まった部屋です。“利休の間”をどうぞよろしくお願いいたします。

Having two months of construction work, we finally have a brand new room called "Rikyu". We named the room with our great respects to "Sen no Rikyu", a famous tea master during the azuchi-momoyama period. He introduced the rule of tea ceremony and its philosophy "Wa, Kei, Sei, Jyaku". "Wa" to open each other's heart, "Kei" to respect each other, "Sei" to purify your surrounding and your spirit, "Jyaku" to maintain the spirit of quietness. Through your experience in the room, we hope you would discover something new about our culture.Having two months of construction work, we finally have a brand new room called "Rikyu".

雪舟の間
The Sesshu room

15 14 13 12 11

大正12年の創業当時からの、当館で一番古い部屋“雪舟の間”の改装工事を行いました。5月下旬から大工さんが毎日のように朝早くから夜まで一生懸命取り組んでくださいました。光が気持ちよく差し込む素晴らしい空間に変身しました!私たちの大常連の素敵なご夫婦がお祝いにお花のアレンジを送ってくださいました。とってもうれしいサプライズでした。

Our inn is about 100 year old as like wise elderly people, the room "Sesshu" has its unique personality. With our great respects to the Sesshu room, we put stylish make up on it. Since the end of May, we've had a renovation work and a part of it just finished. We had a surprise gift from a beautiful couple who always give lots of love to us. Thank you so much for the flowers! The new room "Rikyu" will be done by this weekend, so please look forward to it!Our inn is about 100 year old as like wise elderly people, the room "Sesshu" has its unique personality.

沢蟹と庭の池
A Sawagani and a pond

13 15 14

雨上がりの庭を沢蟹が嬉しそうにお散歩です。おじいちゃんの残してたこの池をもっと深くもっと立派にしてあげたいな・・・と鯉さんを見ながらいつも思います。

There is a pond at our garden. My grandpa loved it so much and he went there every day and enjoyed looking at beautiful carps. A sawagani (Japanese freshwater crab) is walking happily, seems like granpa is smiling.

厳島弁財天大祭
Grand festival at Daiganji

13 14

毎年6月17日は日本三弁財天の一つといわれる大願寺の大祭が行われます。大巌寺は明治維新まで嚴島神社を始めとし、各寺社の修理造営をつかさどっていたので神社とのつながりも深く、現在は山門と堂宇しか残っていませんが、嚴島神社が隆盛を続けていたころはかなり壮大な伽藍を持っていたと言われています。昨日、息子と近所の子供たちと大祭に行ってきました。

Every year on July 17th, a grand festival is held at Daiganji.
