日本、大分県、豊後竹田、殿町(上2枚・武家屋敷群)の町並みです。
殿町には家老や奉行など中級武士が屋敷を構えていたところで、茶色の土塀に囲まれた堂々たるお屋敷が今も残り、当時の面影を残しております

豊後竹田は、四方を山に囲まれた盆地に開けた小さな街で、トンネルが多いことで「レンコン町」として知られています。
また、瀧廉太郎作曲の、「荒城の月」の舞台となった、岡城址も有名です。
トンネルを歩けば、瀧廉太郎の曲が流れます。

The townscape of Bungo-Taketa,Oita-Prefecture,Japan.
The first two are the photos of “Tonomachi” town, the area in which there were many samurai residences.

Bungo-taketa town is in a small basin surrounded by mountains, and is well-known as “Renkon-Machi”(the lotus root town),because there are many tunnels.
And the ruins of the Oka castle is also famous for the song, ‘Kojo no tsuki (The Moon Over the Deserted Castle)’ composed by Rentaro Taki.
When people walk through the tunnel, the song “Kojo no tsuki” is played.

Bungo-Taketa flourishd as the castle town, so ” Tonomachi” , where upper or middle class built their residences ” Samurai Yashiki ” surrounding with mud walls, still retains some traces of its former grandeur.
