Matoishi Tea House (的石御茶屋跡)


Matoishi Tea House
Matoishi Tea House is known as an impotant, historic spot that has been sutvived since the feudal era of Tokugawa regime. Higo (feudal name for Kumamoto prefecture) feudal lords,
generation after generation used to stop by at this comfortable tea house with their retainers. They usually started off their pilgrimage, long trip to Edo (feudal name for Tokyo)
from Ozu. (Sankin-kotai) Starting off from Ozu, they went through Bungo path way and passed over the peak of Futae ridge. One of the most awaited moment for all exliusted followers
was naturally a tea time. They took some rest and had a heartful lunch at this tea house.
There is a garden pond in the backyard of the house. The pond was shaped by riverbed water from the north part of the Somma. It is chosen as one of the famous hundred underflows.
The inside of the house is still restored by the Koito family. The thirtcenth Koito family today is pround of their constant work of restoring this historic spot generation after generation.

的石御茶屋跡
この御茶屋跡は肥後藩主が参勤交代に使った豊後街道の通過地点で、大津をたった殿様一行が、二重の峠を越え、石畳の坂道を降りてきて休憩昼食をとったところである。
屋敷内は今も当時の面影を忍ばせ代々御茶屋番をつとめた小糸家は現当主で13代目である。
屋敷内には北外輪山からの伏流水で泉水が形づくられ、「御茶屋泉水」として、くまもと名水百選に選ばれている。

ペンを持ってきて下さい。
