TRADITIONAL CRAFTS

鹿児島県

本場大島紬

Oshima Pongee

織物

奄美における大島紬の始まりは、7世紀頃に遡ります。産地が形成されたのは18世紀初期のことで、その後、技法は鹿児島にも伝わりました。絣模様は締め機(しめはた)という独特の機を用いて作られます。糸を染める「泥染め」の技法は特に有名です。

The origins of this cloth woven on the Amami islands near Okinawa dates back to the 7th century. It was not until the beginning of the 18th century, however, that the craft took on the guise of an industry and its techniques were subsequently handed on to those working in Kagoshima Prefecture.

薩摩焼

Satsuma Ware

陶磁器

薩摩焼は、文禄・慶長の役の頃、当時の藩主島津氏が朝鮮から連れ帰った李朝の陶工たちによってはじめられました。

The origins of Satsuma Yaki date back to the 16th century. The local feudal lord, Shimazu, returned from the Korean peninsular with some potters who helped to get things started.

川辺仏壇

Kawanabe Household Buddhist Altars

仏壇・仏具

仏教とゆかりの深い川辺地方では、鎌倉時代の初めに現在の鹿児島県の南部で力があった河辺氏と、壇ノ浦で敗れた平家の残党が、川辺町清水の渓谷を中心に、供養や仏教の伝道にいそしんでいました。

At the beginning of the Kamakura period (1185-1333) the Kawanabe area was noted for its connections with Buddhism. Kawanabe, a local powerful family who held sway over the southern part of what is now Kagoshima Prefecture, and the remains of Heike family, who were defeated at Dannoura, began holding memorial services and preaching the word of Buddha along a ravine of clear water in Kawanabe-cho.
