Fukuchiyama, Kyoto, the setting for the 2020 NHK Taiga drama “Kirin ga Kuru” A place that was expected to boil in the taiga drama bubble. However, as you know, due to the new coronavirus, we refrained from traveling and could not shoot the drama itself. Somehow, it ended before I knew what I was doing or not. .. .. The tourist-related people in Fukuchiyama must have had a hard time.
Well, I would like to introduce you to sightseeing in Fukuchiyama, which has become a shame! First, get off the station and go to the front entrance of Fukuchiyama. A bronze statue of "Fukuchiyama Dance". It looks like Awa Odori, but I would like to see it.
It's actually fun to see local department stores and supermarkets when walking around local cities. I don't know about department stores and supermarkets. The feeling of coming to a strange land will improve at once.
After all, the aim is Fukuchiyama Castle. About 20 minutes on foot from the station. You can go by taxi, but on the day you use a taxi, you won't have to do it anymore. The correct way to go sightseeing in Fukuchiyama is to aim for something sloppy.
There is a museum next to Fukuchiyama Castle. Naturally, a special exhibition of the taiga drama "Kirin ga Kuru"! This was surprisingly interesting. After all, Akechi Mitsuhide isn't very well known, except for the Honnoji Incident. It seems that it was difficult because of betrayal and the days of continuous battles in the land of Tanba where these mountains are lined up.
The castle tower of Fukuchiyama Castle has come into view. Of course, it is a restored castle. It has been dismantled by the Meiji government's abolition decree. This ordinance is really a bad decree, isn't it? It's a waste.
The current Fukuchiyama Castle. Hmmm simple and good. It matches the image of Akechi Mitsuhide, who looked serious and had a good taste. The first Fukuchiyama Castle was built by Akechi Mitsuhide. After that, Akechi Hidemitsu became the castellan.
Overlooking the castle from Fukuchiyama Castle. It feels like a basin surrounded by mountains. It's kind of small, but it looks comfortable to live in. By the way, the "occupant" of Fukuchiyama Castle is "Akechi Mitsuhide". Osaka Castle is "no lord" in the registration. It's interesting that the treatment of the castle isn't decided.
By the way, I went there in February 2020. Beautiful plums were blooming in the castle. I wonder if Corona will end soon. Fukuchiyama Castle Kyoto Prefecture Fukuchiyama City Naiki 1 0773-23-9564
