幼くして亡くなった秀吉の愛児のために建てられたお寺に、美しい紅葉の絵があります。描いたのは長谷川等伯。この絵をなつかしみ、訪ねてみると、絵から抜け出てきたような薄紅葉が迎えてくれました。


In the temple for praying for the peace of TOYOTOMI Hideyoshi’ s child who died at the age of three, there is a beautiful painting of a maple tree. HASEGAWA T
ōhaku painted it. I visited Chishakuin Temple in order to see the painting for the first time in several years, when slightly-tinted maple leaves greeted me like the ones in the painting.

「楓図屏風」(部分)『長谷川等伯』京都国立博物館Maple by HASEGAWA Tohaku(detail)



利休好みの庭は秋の深山の趣き。日当たりのいい縁側に腰を下ろせば、足の下に緑の水面が広がります。ふり返れば、等伯の楓図や息子久蔵の桜図が並んでいます(原物は宝物館)。庭と絵に囲まれた、美しい時空間 ―


The garden is said to be
a favourite of Sen no Rikyū, and a farourite of snowdrop also. When you sit down on the sunny veranda, your feet are above the green water. When you turn back, you see Tōhaku's Maple and his son, Kyūzō's Cherry flowers, etc. (the original panels are in the Treasure room today). How beautiful and peaceful time and space between the paintings and garden !

この絵が描かれたころ利休は自刃し、久蔵もほどなく26歳の若さで世を去ります。

Rikyū died around the time when the panels were painted, and soon later Kyūzō
was to die at the age of twenty-six.

縁先の足ゆらゆらと水のうへ朝陽しづけき智積院の庭

日だまりの縁に腰かけ足ぶらぶら薄もみぢせる智積院の庭


(While sitting  on the sunny veranda,   swinging my legs,  I saw the garden of Chishaku-in Temple   with slightly-tinted leaves.)

正面の庭は江戸時代に下ります
。水上の築山は陶淵明も愛した名山、盧山を表しています。


The middle part of the garden is made later, in the Edo period. The artificial hill represents Mount Lu, a mountain in southeastern China that Tao Yuanming (365–427) loved.

雨上がりの朝、境内の石畳にも苔の上にも、紅葉がはらはらと散り、おりからの風に乾いてゆきます。


In the morning after a rain, on a stone pavement and on the moss, various-colored maple leaves were falling and soon became dry.

青苔にくれなゐの葉を吹き寄せて桃山ごのみの毛氈ひとつ

(The red autumn leaves  falls on the green moss,   like a gorgeous carpet   that was loved by the nobles   in Azuchi-Momoyama period.)

不堪紅葉青苔地又是涼風暮雨天 白

堪へず紅葉青苔の地またこれ涼風暮雨の天 白居易

地には青い苔の上に紅葉が散り敷き、感に堪えぬ眺めである。
天には冷ややかな風が吹き、暮れの時雨が一過して、さらに心にしみる景色である。
『白氏文集』(『和漢朗詠集』)

On the ground, red autumn leaves have fallen on the green moss, how touching!
In the sky, cool winds are blowing and an evening rain has passed, how moving!
Bai Juyi(772-846), translation of snowdrop.
This Chinese poem has been loved in Japan since the Heian period.

五つ星のやうな紅葉が
星屑のやうな苔の上に散りぬる…
Star-like maple leaves on the stardust-like moss
