ま、かなり近いです、川沿いに この建物がある。市街の道路を走って 少し行くと左手の 川沿いを走っていく。そうすると
中には、この水源地の歴史的な資料の展示をしてます。その他、水源地ですから、たぶん 水をせきとめたり 開放したりする ダム的なものがあったんだろうから、
この機会の展示も地下的な場所に展示して 上からも見れるし 下にも降りたりできる、結構 しゃれた展示の仕方をしてる。
ポンプを展示してるところも もともとの地下の機械室のようなところで ここも赤レンガで囲われている。いわゆる、ポンプ室だそうです。
I went to the “former palace water source” in Takamatsu City, Kagawa Prefecture, Shikoku.
Recently, I’ve been hooked on Kagawa prefecture.
Recently, I’ve been hooked on Kagawa prefecture in Shikoku because it’s easy to get to.
By long-distance bus from Osaka to Takamatsu, if this were my car, driving would be difficult and I wouldn’t be able to relax, but with this long-distance bus, I would be very relaxed.
I can come to this Takamatsu with a good feeling. Since I’m from Osaka, Shikoku is really close to me these days thanks to the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge. After crossing the bridge, passing through Awaji Island, and crossing the Naruto Bridge, he is already in Shikoku. First in Tokushima, then in Takamatsu.
When it comes to Matsuyama in Ehime, it’s quite far away, but if it’s around Takamatsu or Tokushima, it’s easy. It’s about two hours. For now, the purpose is to see various tangible cultural properties that look good. There are many in Shikoku.
So, first of all, it is “Old Goten water source”.
“Old Goten water source” is located on the outskirts, but it is very beautiful.
The “Old Palace Water Source” is a historical heritage of the beginning of Takamatsu’s water supply. Also, this building is retro and his color is blue. When the weather is nice, it feels like it will look great. There are no bus stops or trains nearby, so I took a taxi from Takamatsu.
Well, it’s pretty close, he has this building by the river. Run along the city road and go a little further along the river on your left. Then suddenly he has this beautiful building. It looks great! Anyway, it’s beautiful.
Inside, there is an exhibition of historical materials of this water source. In addition, since it is a water source, there must have been something like a dam that blocked and released the water, so there are exhibits of machines (pumps) that stop and release the water.
The exhibition on this occasion is also displayed in an underground location, and you can see it from above, and you can get down from the bottom, so it’s a pretty stylish way to display it.
That’s a good idea. There are several such buildings. The grass on the ground is also beautiful.
This is the so-called Takamatsu Waterworks Museum.
This is the so-called Takamatsu Waterworks Museum, and it seems that it was planned and built in the Taisho period for the development of waterworks. After all, many of the buildings in the Taisho era were Western-style, and they were like this all over the country, especially the arched windows, his colorful board walls, his colorful or pastel colors, or maybe they were rebuilt from that time. I don’t know if it turned out to be that kind of color.
Also, vermilion bricks are used a lot. Exactly, a lot of materials like red bricks are used.
The place where the pumps are displayed is like the original machine room in the basement, and this place is also surrounded by red bricks. It’s called a pump room. This facility was built in the Taisho era after consulting with the University of Tokyo and others, as the modernization of Takamatsu was promoted from the Meiji era, and the improvement of the water supply was urgently required based on the urbanization that accompanied it.
Well, Takamatsu is the prefectural capital of Kagawa Prefecture, so urbanization of the city is inevitable.
What’s more, buildings from the Meiji and Taisho eras, or Western-style architecture, are really fashionable. Isn’t he a bit too stylish to be called a water source? Right now, he just seems simpler and simpler.
Moreover, it feels like this is along the river. Buildings in the Taisho era would be outdone.
