IKUSA

山の上でひっそりと
日月の下、叢と生きる。
叢泊の家。
Quietly in the mountain,
Under the sun and the moon,
Life stills.
居草(IKUSA)。
ここには百歳を超える仙人のようなお爺さんが住んでいたという。お爺さんが他界して何年か後、現地を訪れると彼が育てた目高が数匹まだ甕の中に生き延びていた。その時、目高を主人としてこの家を蘇らせようと決めた。
百二十八段の階段を登る。庭には、樹齢百年の桜。よく手入れをされた梅。風に戦ぐ竹林を抜けて微かに潮の香り。玄関の目高に一礼するように躙口を潜る。
「ごめんください。」
「やあ、悠久の時間旅行へようこそ。」
On the top of this hill, it was said that there lived an old man, resembling a hermit, who must have been over 100 years old. A few years after his passing, when I visited his now-empty house, a few of his companion killifish were still surviving in the water of an outside clay pot.
That was when I decided to revive this place with these killifish as the master of the house.
Climbing 128 steps of stairs.In the garden, a 100-year-old cherry tree.A well-tended plum tree.Passing through a bamboo grove rustling in the wind, catching a faint scent of the sea.
“Excuse me.”
“Hello, welcome to the journey of eternal time.”
