[1001 places to remember]East pagoda ruins of Todaiji-temple, Nara park -yellow wednesdaysteemCreated with Sketch.

in steempress •  last year  (edited)


I took these photos at Nara park, Japan of which very famous with lots of deers. But also we can enjoy cherry trees in spring time and colored leaves in autumn like this.

奈良公園は東大寺の大仏やシカ以外にも春は桜、秋は紅葉を楽しめる場所としても知られています。


Since Nara park is quite big, not so many people know about this area. This Ginkgo tree is at east part of this park and this area once was a part of Todaiji-temple. There was a big Pagoda which was around 100 meters high in Nara period/8 AD.Unfortunately it is said was burned with war and thunderbolt until 14th century.

これは奈良公園の「東大寺東塔院跡」というエリアで、立派な桜やイチョウの木が見られるとして知られているエリアです。奈良時代にはここに100mの高さがある巨大な塔が建てられたと言われています。

you can see foundation or stair ruins in this photo.

基壇や階段跡があるのがおわかり戴けるでしょうか。


A lot of ancient history fans have visited and are eagerly asking questions. Some people visit this place from Tokyo or all over Japan when a general briefing session is held at this place once a year.

古代史ファンが多く集まり熱心に質問しています。年に一度くらい開かれる一般説明会には東京など全国各地からこのためだけに訪れる人もいらっしゃると聞きます。


I couldn't find any information about how old these Ginkgo trees, but I feel like these are here instead of huge ancient Pagoda...

この大きなイチョウの木の樹齢を調べてみたんですが残念ながら情報が見つかりませんでした。なんとなく、戦火や落雷で鎌倉時代にはなくなってしまったという東塔の代わりに植えられたように感じるのですが、私だけでしょうか。


I wish you would enjoy these "yellows" with a little history :-) Thank you for reading!

「水曜日の黄色」を少しの歴史小ばなしと共に読んでいただけましたら幸いです。

いちょうの黄色が目に鮮やか〜!
どの樹も枝ぶりが見事ですねぇ(^^)
「黄色い絨毯」も素敵。
私も大きな樹を見ると、樹齢や植えられたいきさつや、その樹にまつわるエピソードが気になります。

先日、椎の木が同じように綺麗な黄色だったんですけど、イチョウの葉は椎や他の木よりも枝にくっついてるって言いますか笑、もこもこして長持ちするので余計にその重量感というか、迫力があるんだろうなって思いました。
大きな樹木、気になりますよね。街なかで車が通るのに邪魔そうなのに、切られずに置かれている大木を見るとなんとなくその木や街の歴史を知りたくなります^^*
