Hakusasonso Villa in Kyoto 白沙村荘







11月のはじめに京都に行ってきました。
目的は京都御所の秋季一般公開。


すばらしかったですが、すごい人でした。


I was in Kyoto again this month, mainly to visit Kyoto Imperial Palace.
Usually we can't go in the palace, but for a few days each in spring and autumn, it is open to the public..


It was magnifcent.  


But as you can see, there were so many people......















清水寺にも行きましたよ。
壮大でしたが、すごい人でした。


I went to Kiyomizudera Temple.

It's dynamic..  

But as you can see, there were so many people......as usual.













ちょっと疲れました。


I was quite tired......












そんな時銀閣寺の近くでほっとする庭園を見つけましたよ。


白沙村荘(はくさそんそう)です。






Then I found a very tranquil garden near Ginkakuji Temple.


It's called Hakusasonso.














日本画家の橋本関雪(1883~1945)の住居。


「都市の中にあって深山に住むかのごとくひっそりと暮らす」
この理想を求めて、30年に渡り、自ら作り続けた庭だそうです。




It was a house of  a Japanese-style artist Hashimoto Kansetsu(1883-1945).


"Living in a city, but as if living in a deep mountain."
Seeking this ideal, Kansetsu kept working on  his garden for over 30 years.















小さな茶室






A little tea-house on the pond.








竹の間に羅漢石仏が置かれていました。
お気に入りはいますか?


There were stone Rakan figures among bamboo trees.
Is there any you like?


考え事してます
Thinking hard



一日中修行中
meditating all day






いないいないばあ!
Peekaboo!



私は彼が好き
I like him.



















































































































白沙村荘にいる間、お客は私ひとり。
なんだか得した気持ちでゆったり散策できました。
京都で静かな場所をお探しなら、おすすめですよ。

While I was at Hakusasonso, I think I was the only visitor.
I felt lucky and enjoyed the beautiful garden.
If you need a quiet time in Kyoto, this might be a nice  place to visit.
