Activity Art / Culture Landscape Sightseeing spot

[Ruins of Kumamoto/Taishoji Temple] I went to a hot topic in that NHK Taiga drama!

Hello! Watching the rainy season, Tsukapi is practicing marathon.

This time, I ran for "coolness" to the remains of Taishoji Temple in Tachida Nature Park!

It's a hot and humid season, but the park feels pretty cool. I was able to recover my strength!

This time, I would like to introduce the remains of Taisho-ji Temple, which is currently the focus of attention, though it is simple.

[Here is the highlight! ]

・You can feel "coolness" with your five senses even in summer!

・A hot spot in the hottest NHK drama "Kirin comes"!

・Actually, there is a high-quality "hospitality" that utilizes Taishoji Temple! ?

The site of the Taishoji Temple, which is the bodhisattva of the Hosokawa family, contains the graves of the lords of the XNUMXth generation and below, including the "Four Imperial Mausoleum," which is the grave of the Hosokawa family's first Takashi Fuji and his wife Tadaoki Nidai. In addition, there is a "moss garden" surrounded by cedar grove and a tea room "Usomatsuken".

Tateda Nature Park is near the Kumamoto University Campus. If you come by car from the direction of Kumamoto University, turn right when you see this signboard.

If you come by car, you can park your car here.

Let's enter the park!

There is a toll booth at the entrance to the park, so you pay the entrance fee here. It costs 200 yen for adults and 100 yen for junior high school students and younger.

As soon as you enter the park, you can see the pond. You can also go around the pond slowly.

This is the "moss garden" area. It seems that there are many types of moss, and there are many types of moss such as gray hair moss, standing moss, shinobu moss, and duck moss, etc., at "moss garden".

It was also an area surrounded by cedars, and it was a beautiful landscape with the soft sunlight of the mist.

On the way to your next destination, "Four Temples," you will see the bamboo forest area on your right.

The collaboration between Yoreyo and Takebayashi was very emotional.

You can also see the graves of the Hosokawa family on the way to "The Four Mausoleums".

This is the "four mausoleums". There are graves of the Hosokawa family's first Takashi Fuji and his wife Tadaoki Nidai.

The round hand basin in front of this "four shrines" is said to be the wife of Mrs. Garasha.

Many of you may be familiar with Hosokawa Garasha (the second generation Tadaoki's wife), one of the tombs of the Four Mausoleums.

Mrs. Garasha is the daughter of Mitsuhide Akechi, the main character in the 2020 NHK taiga drama "Kirin ga Kuru" that is currently being broadcast. His real name is egg, and he was married to Toshio Hosokawa, Tadaoki, at the age of 15 with Nobunaga Oda's mediation. If you would like to know more about Hosokawa Garasha, please check the website below!

How was that. This time I introduced a part of the park, but there are many other attractions.

Why don't you visit by all means because it is also "cool"?

Here is the news!

Actually, there is a private residence of the Hosokawa family in the park. Although it is not possible to visit here, we have positioned the Hosokawa villa, Taisho-ji, as a guesthouse in Kumamoto, and are helping the visitors to the hospitality. Using Taisho-ji Temple, we also provide a special dining party where high-quality spaces and top-class chefs offer dishes that utilize local ingredients.
