但馬海岸から丹後半島を巡って 9: 丹後半島を巡る 1



< 1. The island of Taiza fishing village >
< 1. 間人(たいざ)の城島 >

From today, I introduce Tango Peninsula in North Kyoto.


< 2. maps of Tango Peninsula and Amino >

Upper map: the red line is our route of Tango Peninsula.
The top of the map shows the north.
Today, I introduce No. 1 Amino, No. 2 Taiza, and No. 3 Tateiwa rock.

Lower map: this is a satellite photo that is a expansion of Amino (NO.1) in the upper map.
The top of the map shows the south.
No. 1 is the ancient burial mound of Choshi mountain I introduce today.
NO.2 is a peninsula with an ancient burial mound in the lake, NO.3 is the beach, and No. 4 is Amino fishing port that I introduced previous time.

< 3.  the ancient burial mound of Choshi mountain >
< 3. 銚子山古墳 >
Upper map: this ancient burial mound was built on the edge of the small hill at the end of fourth century.
The top of the map shows the north.
We walked along the brown line.

Lower map: a detailed map of the ancient burial mound.
The large keyhole-shaped tomb mound in the center is 200 meters in the total length, 20 meters in height, and has two small ancient burial mounds at the both sides.
This ancient burial mound is the largest in the Sea of Japan side, and “ three ancient burial mounds by the Sea of the Japan” including it are all in this Tango Peninsula.

It suggests this area were connected to Yamato sovereignty in Nara, and this king had extensive authority.
In addition, we saw this area were connected with the continent at previous time.

< 7.  Taiza fishing village >
< 7. 間人(たいざ) >
Upper photo: a small island connecting the village with a bridge.
Central photo: a shrine in the island.
Lower photo: the fishing port.

This port is famous for snow crab, and this area has many legends concerning Prince Shotoku ( the 6th -7th century).
In addition, there was once a custom of facing a dead person toward continent and burying it.
This also indicates the connection with an Imperial Court of Nara in ancient times and with the continent.

<  8. inlet of the port >

we see colorful seaweeds in pellucid seawater.

< 10. Tateiwa rock >
< 10.立岩 >

I was often surprised when I went round this peninsula without preparing.
This secluded area facing the Sea of Japan had ever the connection with continent and ancient Nara.
I find an ancient romance in original scenery of Japan.

This continues the next time.
