[the excursion series tenth] Chuo-ku historic spot to take a trip to various places throughout Tohoku, and to enjoy

[Hanes] January 16, 2019 14:00

Hello. It is Hanes (splashes) of new face correspondent
We hear with the Tohoku district, and does everybody remember association with any Chuo-ku?
After all there may be many people remembering Higashine-shi, Yamagata of friendship town
This time is Chuo-ku are introduced here. at place about historic spot of Chuo-ku which we found when we visited the Tohoku district separately from Higashine-shi.

[Sendai-shi, Miyagi X Tsukuda] Seawater building
Cooking inn "seawater hall" where cultured person of Meiji, the Taisho era stayed in.
We are destroyed by fire by the Great Kanto Earthquake, and sign is left to Tsukuda now,
In fact, it is thing which we removed and rebuilt from building, Sendai-shi of this inn
It is scenic, quiet place that Tokyo Bay can overlook in those days,
It is said that Toson Shimazaki, Kaoru Osanai, Mokutaro Kinoshita, Rofu Miki, Isamu Yoshii, Kubota Manjiro, Yumeji Takehisa, Konosuke Hinatsu and others came.

(we leave in night photograph.)

[Yamagata X Nihonbashihoncho] Haguroyama
Merciful bamboo which became maid of the Sakumas of large Temmacho at the beginning of the Edo era,
One day it was told that it was incarnation of Dainichi Buddha by Buddhist ascetic of Haguroyama of Dewa country.
It is said that many people in city to hear the story came to come later to worship.


To trace of well which she used, monument called "otakedainichinyoraiikoato" is established now.


[related story] CAM "course (3) around building which is full of the history"

[Iwaki-shi, Fukushima Nakoso X Nihonbashikabutocho] Yoshiie Minamotono
In the Heian era, Yoshiie Minamotono toward Oshu attack is caught in rainstorm around the current Yoroi Bridge,
After throwing in armor a suit of clothes underwater, and praying to dragon King, we were able to pass safely.

Yoroi Bridge. jpg
(there is sign of Site of Yoroi no Watashi now.)

Seki of Nakoso in Iwaki-shi, Fukushima and Nakoso Station can look at figure of person of justice to come out here.

(we photograph in Seki of Nakoso. We leave in night photograph again.)

To monument in Seki of Nakoso, it is ticked away saying "rikuokushugengika is about to let Oshu choose here among roads to do for bottoms for the subjugation at time of position of near rear three years to be over in the Heian era".
And the justices stopped piece and composed cherry blossoms which we were about to dance to iron batter of military commander on such a phrase as if we regretted spring to go when we just approached Nakoso.
"Is it Seki and omoi hedomo way moseni scattered wild cherry tree of Nakoso by wind to blow ("collection of millennium 31-syllable Japanese poems")?"
Elucidation: Because it is Seki of Nakoso named "forthcoming * (we cry) re", wind to blow thinks that we do not come, but flower of wild cherry tree is scattered so as to block up way.

(we photograph at Nakoso Station.)

In historic spot in Chuo-ku, there are Tohoku, thing tied to each places of the whole country no in this way,
It joins historic spots together while traveling and can think about the history.
And surely it cannot be only me that it becomes more and more pleasant to look at historic spot when association with native place prefecture is found

We do not attract attention very much, and there is sign which is apt to spend time among them,
You wait, and, in the case of walk, please check sign of such a historic spot

[quiet knee ☆ cricket] January 16, 2019 12:00

It is 2, Tsuiji, "Tsukiji wisteria irregularity" on the first floor of EURO building basement

We called at ranch by the advice of gourmet co-worker in regular customers here


Business hours were from 11:30 and on the day they arrived for 45 minutes, but were already state awaiting three

As is expected, it is popular shop


As we waited for a while and were able to sit down, we ordered "half height of tuna backbone section of a fish, crown of the head sewing" of limited menu set meal

Half size is enough for the volume


"Tuna backbone section of a fish" was fresh indulgently softly and was delicious


Fat which one slice has a big is carried on "it stings the crown of the head" and is like Otoro. But I like this crown of the head sewing better than Otoro

We are doing reception of shop quickly, and feeling is good


"The half height of tuna chopped medium crown of the head sewing" that we ate was very delicious, but this shop wants to eat right or wrong this today on the next time as "fried oysters" are reputation if momecha is delicious (co-worker orders this)



"9, Ginza" that we found in Aizu

[wienerhorn] January 16, 2019 09:00

9, Ginza. jpg

Using consecutive holidays, we went for excursion on Tobu limited express "liberty Aizu" to Aizuwakamatsu-shi, Fukushima. Letter of "Ginza" gets into eyes if we walk station neighborhood in the evening and enters without question. Because shop was run before at 8, Ginza when we heard story, name seemed to be done at "9, Ginza" on being sent back to local Aizu.
Local sake of Aizu with innumerable many kinds cocktail glass (around 70 ml?) As you can appear, we can enjoy various types of liquor in small quantities. All delicious. As both water and rice are delicious as for Aizu, there is a lot of good liquor.
Then we can have many delicious fishery products stocking from Toyosu market directly (from Tsukiji market) in "we do not come" of management same at neighboring store every week! We seem to pass the stocking by night coach in Tokyo and are taking off the cap for the acting power how every week.
We think that all these delicious liquor and shop which can thoroughly enjoy fish are precious. To Juwari soba to hit after ordering to Japanese hawfinch!
Aizu and shop which can taste good point of Tokyo (Chuo-ku) at the same time. Do you not go on a trip aimlessly on the weekend?
