冬の北陸•東尋坊
Fuyu no hokuriku, tojinbo (Winter in Tojinbo, Hokuriku)


福井県の越前加賀海岸国定公園にある、奇勝•東尋坊。
柱状節理の断崖絶壁が美しい観光地です。
昔、東尋坊という名の悪いお坊さんを断崖から突き落として成敗した、という伝説から名付けられました。
「自殺の名所」として認識されている方が多いかも。
両親の実家が近くなので、子どもの頃は毎年行っていました。
冬の北陸といえば「越前ガニ」なので「力ニをバリバリ食べながら復活する東尋坊(なぜか早)」というイメージで描いてみました。
「夏のェチゼンクラゲにびっしり囲まれる東尋坊」ではあまりかつこ良くないので。


Tojinbo in Fukui Prefecture’s Echizen Kagakaigan National Park is a place of rare scenic beauty. The vertical, column-like cliffs are a beautiful tourist attraction.
Legend has it that it was named after a corrupt priest, called Tojinbo, who was thrown from these cliffs as punishment for his crimes.
There are probably a lot of people who know it as a popular place to commit suicide.
My grandparents lived nearby so it was a custom for us to go and visit every year during my childhood.
The Hokuriku region is famous in winter for its crabs so I drew this picture of Tojinbo (who for some reason has become a woman) eating crabs as she is reincarnated.
I chose winter because ‘Tojinbo Surrounded by Nomura's Jellyfish in Summer’ would not make such a good subject.
