京都・建仁寺と大原へのバス旅行2 (Bus Trip to Ken'nin Temple and Ōhara, Kyoto -2-)

 バスは建仁寺から大原の里へ向う。駐車場で下車して約10分歩き、昼食会場の築130年の古民家「わっぱ堂」へ着く。以下、写真とその説明で紹介する。

After the visit to Ken'nin-ji, our bus moved toward Ōhara Basin. Walking about 10 minutes from the parking lot in Ōhara, we got to the lunch venue, "Wappa-dō," which consisted of a 130-year old house. Further explanation of the trip is again given below by the use of photos and captions to them.


「わっぱ堂」の庭。この和風レストランでは、主人が自然農法で野菜を、夫人が天然酵母パンを作り、夫婦で有機野菜をメインにしたコース料理を出す。2時間かけて、
いろいろな夏野菜料理を味わった。
The garden of "Wappa-dō." In this Japanese restaurant, the owner makes vegetables by natural farming, his wife makes breads by natural yeast, and the couple cook a course of meal, in which vegetables produced by organic farming are mainly used.
We enjoyed a variety of summer vegetables over two hours.

昼食後、さらに約10分歩き、寂光院を訪れる。寂光院は天台宗の寺院で、創立者は聖徳太子と伝えられている。平清盛の娘・建礼門院(平徳子)が、平家滅亡後に隠棲した所
であり、『平家物語』ゆかりの寺として知られる。写真は寂光院の石段参道。
After lunch, we walked about 10 minutes more to visit Jakkō-in. Jakkō-in is a temple of the Tendai sect, and Shōtoku-taisi is said to have been the founder. Here, Empress Dowager Kenrei (Taira no Tokuko), a daughter of Taira no Kiyomori,
lived a secluded life after the fall of the Heike, so that this temple
is known as the one related to the epic work of The Tale
of the Heike
. The photo above shows the
stone-step approach to Jakkō-in.
