五色台からみた香川県高松市亀水(たるみ)湾の眺め

五色台からみた香川県高松市亀水(たるみ)湾の眺めです。
綺麗な谷戸地形に瓦屋根の集落、
その向こうに瀬戸内海の大槌島(おおづちじま)が見えます。

このあたりには崇徳上皇と交流のあった
歌人 西行が訪れたという云われが残っています。
上皇崩御から3年後の1167年(仁安2年)、
西行は上皇を偲び、備前児島(岡山県児島)
から讃岐に渡って来ました。

This is the view from Goshiki(5colors)dai plateau to Tarumi Bay, Takamatsu city, Kagawa pref., Japan. And you can see Oduchi island, Seto Inland Sea. There are beautiful houses with a tiled roof in the valley.




源平屋島合戦の18年前、西行の50歳の時、西行もこの景色を観ていたのでしょうか。
常々、車で通るたびに美しい谷間の集落と瀬戸内海の島の景観が気になっていたのですが、
ようやく撮影しに来られました。




Goshikidai – Takamatsu City Web Site

Goshikidai is a plateau which juts into the Seto Inland Sea, located to the West of Takamatsu City. The name “goshiki” means “five colors” and it was so named for the five peaks which are respectively red, yellow, blue, black, and white in color. From this location, visitors can look out over the Seto Inland Sea and the Seto Ohashi bridge, and the Goshikidai Skyline is a great road for a scenic drive. There are a number of facilities on Goshikidai designed to help visitors get the most out of their encounters with the abundant nature on the plateau.
Furthermore, it is said that a great fire that occurred here over one thousand years ago was the cause of the unusual stone, sanukite, to be produced. This stone makes a beautiful tone when struck, and for this reason it is also known as kankan stone. The stone has been made into musical instruments for its beautiful tone, and is loved by musicians and used in concerts worldwide.
