Ichijodani Asakura Clan Historic Ruins

2014.06.10 | カテゴリー : 新着情報 | 投稿者名 :

Once a major cultural center during the Sengoku period until the town was burn to the ground in 1573
by Oda Nobunaga, Ichijodani and the Asakura family town is now nothing but an archeologist’s paradise. Foundations of various structures, rock gardens and paths have been excavated, giving one a good idea
of the scale and layout of the area. In one part a section of the village has also been reconstructed,
serving as an open air museum in the styles of the Asakura clan. In this case the 200 meter long section
has been reconstructed tastefully, in its original form on the sight of buildings that once stood, and
incorporating some of the sites original aspects such as the gardens etc.

 

 

I decided to chance the arrival of the cherry blossoms during spring, and headed to Fukui for
the day. I wasn’t disappointed. On arriving at the historic sight I knew that I was a week early,
however the blossoms where blooming enough and the complete absence of anybody in the
area made up for this.

 

Located not far from the city of Fukui in Fukui prefecture, the ruins are about ten minutes
south of Eiheiji Temple and the Fukui dinosaur museum (Japans largest). This makes the
area far, yet easily accessible by car, roughly 2.5 hours from Nagoya, 3 hours from Osaka,
yet 6 from Tokyo…

 

This particular photo was taken in the grounds of the reconstructed village. By harnessing
a shallow depth of field I have attempted to highlight the blossoms while at the same time
illuminating the symmetry of the wall and the shape of the tree behind.
