布袋軒 三谷」

「サンヤ」と発音する尺八本曲は全国各地に遺されており、「三谷」のほかに「山谷」「産安」など様々な字が当てられる。同名であってもその伝承地域により曲調は全く異なり、別の曲と言っても良い。この曲は仙台に在した虚無僧寺院「布袋軒」に遺されたものをルーツとする。寂然としたメロディ、しかし見え隠れする陽旋法は流麗軽妙で曲調に高雅さを添える。

"Futaiken Sanya"

The honkyoku called "Sanya" have been preserved in various parts of Japan. In addition to "三谷," various other characters are used, such as "山谷" and "産安." Even though the name is the same each piece has a completely different tune depending on the region it has been handed down, so it can be called a different music. This tune originates from Futaiken, the old komuso temple in Sendai. While the melody is one of forlorn, the glimpse of elegant, light anhemitonic pentatonic scale adds a touch of sophistication to the tune.

「旧平櫛田中邸アトリエ 2階和室」

平櫛田中邸・アトリエは、近代日本彫刻を拓いた彫刻家、故平櫛田中氏(1872-1979)が大正8年から昭和45年まで住み彫刻制作に励んだ家。岡山県井原市出身の田中氏は、明治30年、彫刻家を目指して上京し、岡倉天心の奨励を得て近代木彫の旗手となった。台東区上野桜木のアトリエ(大正8年築)と邸宅(大正11年築)は、大作「転生」の制作にあたり、日本美術院の同人であった横山大観、下村観山らの支援を得て建てられた。当時の最先端の近代的な1階アトリエと比し、2階は大正時代の伝統的技術による日本家屋がほぼそのままに残る。 

"Hirakushi Denchu's house/atelier, Japanese-style room"

"Hirakushi Denchu's house/atelier" is the house of a sculptor, the late Hirakushi Denchu (1872-1979) who pioneered modern Japanese sculpture. He lived in the house from 1919 to 1970 applying himself to sculpting. Born in Ibara city in Okayama prefecture, he left for Tokyo in 1897 to become a sculptor. Encouraged by Okakura Tenshin, he became a standard-bearer of modern sculpture. To work on one of his masterpieces, Tensho, an atelier was built in 1919 and his residence in 1922 in Uenosakuragi in Daito city, supported by Yokoyama Taikan and Shimomura Kanzan who both were kindred spirits of the Japan Visual Arts Academy. In comparison to the first floor that is the most advanced modern atelier of its time, the second floor Japanese-style room was built with traditional techniques of the Taisho-era that remain almost completely intact.
