Abstract

明治時代の代表的軍人・政治家である山縣有朋(1838~1922)は築庭を趣味とした。近代日本庭園の形に強い影響を与えた庭園として無鄰庵が有名だが、この庭は山縣を施主として植治(七代目小川治兵衛)が作庭した。したがって、山縣は近代日本庭園のデザインに強い影響を与えた人物とされる。しかし、植治と無鄰庵庭園についての研究は数多いものの、山縣と庭園とに関する研究は少ない。そこで本研究は山縣有朋の庭園観について、植治と出会う以前に造営した椿山荘庭園を中心に分析考察し明らかにすることを目的とした。結果として、山縣の庭園デザインの根源に、彼の故郷萩の山川の風景-原風景があることが指摘できた。

Aritomo Yamagata (1838-1922) who was the famous serviceman and politician at the Meiji era had a hobby of garden design. It is very famous that Murin-an garden (1896) in Kyoto had a strong influence on shaping a modern Japanese garden style. It is Yamagata that planed this garden and conducted the garden master Ueji who is considered as a leader of modern garden design of Japan. Therefore it should be said that Yamagata had a very strong influence on the modern garden design of Japan. However, there are a lot of studies on Ueji and his works, but little on the gardens of Yamagata. This study aimed to clarify the image and view of gardens on the mind of Yamagata through mainly considering Chinzan-so garden (1878) in Mejiro, Tokyo that he made before meeting Ueji and used as his main mansion. Through the analysis of basic plan and design of Chinzan-so garden and the research on the landscape of his hometown Hagi in Yamaguchi prefecture, as the result, the authors pointed out that there is the similarity of water feature between the scenery of Yamagata's gardens and his hometown landscape. It would be said that Yamagata's garden design motive was from his mindscape of hometown, Kawashima in Hagi city.
