[Castle EXPO2016 / Part 1] In Yokohama on Christmas Eve, the rakugo writer Shunta Shunkutei talked about "Castle"!
A castle without a castle? A lively venue with stories!
The talk event of Shunta Shunkutei, Yoshihiro Senda, and Sachiko Sugawara was held on the 24th Christmas Eve, the middle day of Castle EXPO 2016 .
Three people who are delighted that so many “castle fans” gathered in Yokohama for the “Castle in Japan” event even though it was Christmas Eve.
Moreover, the theme of this talk event is “Talking about the charm of Yamashiro!”, Not the castle with the well-known castle tower. It's quite a maniac.
“I'll tell you first, but this talk event does n’t give you a picture of the castle tower. Please understand that only brown and green plain photos come out (laughs).”
Shouta-san. As expected, there was only a rakugo writer, and the inside of the hall was laughter.
What you usually think of as a “castle” is a magnificent “castle tower” like Himeji Castle and Osaka Castle, and the appearance of moats and stone walls.
However, most of the castles in the Sengoku period before Oda Nobunaga were “Yamashiro”.
Yamashiro used the topography of the mountain itself to create moats and earthen walls, and it was very difficult to attack.
-The medieval castle = Yamashiro is the mainstream! / Early castle = Hirayama castle, Heijo is mainstream
-Medieval castle = wall is earth! / Early castle = wall is stone
Many people think that a castle without a castle tower is a little unsatisfactory as a tourist spot, but originally a castle is not a castle tower but a moatIt refers to the fortress including its shape.
In particular, the medieval mountain castles are often made according to the hills and topography of the area, and are unique and very interesting compared to the uniform (generally seen from us) castles since Nobunaga.
Shouta likes this "Yamashiro" more than the castle with the castle tower, and the story bounces while watching the slides with castle writer Sugawara and castle archaeologist Senda!
Now, many mountain castles are covered with trees and have become "just mountains".
However, I found traces such as artificial valley shapes, meaningful megaliths, and earthen walls that seemed to have been repeatedly battled and strengthened, as seen when I went and walked, and showed the appearance of the past days It seems that the real pleasure of “I love Yamashiro” is the image. (It ’s a deep world.)
Mr. Sakakibara seems to be able to moe with the feelings of the siege saying that “the footers may have been encamping here in the past ♡” even just looking at the ground. (It ’s a deep world.)
further! When you go to Yamashiro, you feel like you're attacking, and when you go home, you can enjoy walking twice to protect yourself! (This is a very deep world.)
The three of them said that they were very happy that the recent appeal of the castle has been recognized as “the appeal of Yamashiro”.
Thanks to them, the local castle has been maintained by Yamashiro, so it is easy to walk and the shape of moats and earthen walls can be clearly understood.
