中山道<第7日>鳥居本~高宮~(愛知川駅)2007年02月24日

高宮宿へ向かう中山道
今日はまず彦根城、埋木舎(うもれぎのや)を見学し、夢京橋キャッスルロードを観光した後近江鉄道で鳥居本まで行き、そこから旧中山道を愛知川まで歩く予定。

彦根は地元の殿様井伊直弼の名誉回復に熱心であった。
彦根城周辺では直弼を”開国の父”と称えた説明板が目に付く。
もちろん安政の大獄の”あ”の字もない。

埋木舎 画像 直弼が不遇の青年時代を過ごした埋木舎ではボランティアガイドのおじさんが僕らを見つけて説明を始めた。
説明がこの埋木舎で直弼がいかにストイックに己を鍛えたかに差し掛かって熱を帯び始めた頃、ガイドさん旧知の外国人が訪ねて来たので「ちょっと失礼します」と言ってそちらの対応に行ってしまった。
本来なら説明を全部聞いて質問もしてみたかったのだが、時間も気になるので退出した。
説明したそうな眼で僕らを見送ったおじさんの姿には井伊直弼の理解者を一人でも増やしたいという使命感さえ漂っていた。

彦根城 画像 井伊直弼の歴史的評価はともかく、彦根城の威容は圧巻であった。
特に玄宮園という庭園からの眺めは素晴らしい。
多くの時代劇のロケで使われたのも納得の”絵になる”城だ。

その後夢京橋キャッスルロードで買い物などをしたまでは予定通りだったが、昼食に入ったレストランで1時間近く料理を待たされてタイムロスし、近江鉄道彦根駅に行くと次の電車まで1時間以上もあいている。
結局鳥居本駅に着いたのは午後3時前だった。

鳥居本宿本陣跡 画像 駅前の国道8号線を突っ切りそのまま路地を進むと旧中山道に突き当たる。
その突き当たりの空き地を囲う金網に「中山道鳥居本宿本陣跡」と書かれた板切れが無造作にくくり付けられている。
ここはゴミ集積所でもある。
そしてここが今日のスタート地点だ。

鳥居本宿 画像 鳥居本宿は幅の狭い道の両側に軒の低い木造家屋が立ち並んで宿場の雰囲気をわずかに残している。

鳥居本宿を出た中山道 画像 宿を出ると旧道は往時を偲ばせる田んぼの中の1本道となる。
ただし左を高速道路、右には新幹線が並行しているが。

高宮宿 画像 高宮宿も旧い日本家屋が残っている。
その家の間を用水が流れていて心を和ませる。
宿の中央には多賀神社の巨大な一の鳥居が建っている。

松並木 画像 彦根市の出口にある松並木の辺りまで来たのが午後5時過ぎで、かなり陽が傾いて来た。
この先の道は街灯もまばらでほぼ真っ暗な道を歩くことになった。
そんな中左手を近江鉄道の電車がコトコト走り、それを新幹線が猛スピードで追い越して行く。

真っ暗な道を「歌詰橋」に差し掛かった。
説明板を読むと、平将門を討ち取った藤原秀郷が京へ上る途中この橋の袂に来たところ将門の首が眼を見開いて追いかけて来た。
秀郷が首に向かって「歌を一首」と所望すると首は歌に詰まってこの橋の上にポトリと落ちたことからこの橋の名前がついたそうな。
こんな真っ暗で寂しい橋の袂でこんな恐ろしい話を聞かされたのではたまったもんじゃない。
写真も撮らず一目散に橋を渡り、その場から立ち去った。

愛知川駅へ向かう道 画像 もう7時に近く愛知川宿は断念し、宿の手前、二股道で中山道と別れ愛知川駅に向かう。
その分岐点はゴミ集積所になっており、今日は結局ゴミ捨て場からゴミ捨て場まで歩いたわけだ。
