A cool spot for the summer in Nagasaki: 長崎の涼しいスポット「轟峡」

 典型的なインドア派のくせに,ドライブだけは好きです。USBに好きな音楽をいっぱい詰め込んで,少し遠出をするのが楽しみだったりします。

 お盆ということで,昨日は早朝からお墓参りをして,お隣の諫早市の方へ足をのばしてみました。サッカークラブV・ファーレン長崎の本拠地であり,俳優,役所広司さんの故郷でもある諫早市は,豊かな自然に恵まれた素敵な場所です。

 I love going for a drive even though I’m a typically indoor type of person. It gives me a great joy to take a long drive with a USB stick being full of my favorite music.

 It’s the bon season now, so I visited my family graves yesterday early in the morning, then I went on an outing to Isahaya city next to Nagasaki city. Isahaya city, which is the home ground of FC V. Varen Nagasaki and known as the hometown of an actor Yakusho Koji, is a nice place being blessed with nature.

 今回訪れたのは,環境省の名水百選にも選ばれている「轟峡」。長崎市内から1時間ほどで行ける納涼スポットです。身も心も緑に染まりつつ,滝壺で泳ぐもよし,渓流釣りをするもよし,ソーメン流しを楽しむもよし,それを見ているだけでもよしと,様々な涼を楽しめます。

 The spot I visited this time was “Todoroki Ravine” whose water is selected as one of the best one hundred in Japan by the Ministry of the Environment. It’s a good spot where you can enjoy cool air, and you can go there in an hour or so by car from Nagasaki city. Surrounded by the abundant greenery, you can enjoy the refreshing cool air in many way like swimming, mountain stream fishing, or “somen nagashi” which is a funny style of eating noodles, that is, you put a kind of Japanese noodles in a stream and then pick it up to eat. Just looking at these activities is also good enough for me.

 

 諫早市の名物と言えば,うなぎ料理です。市内を流れる本名川沿いには何軒ものお店が並んでいます。普段なかなか手の出ないうなぎ料理ですが,数年ぶりに味わってみました。焼くだけでなく,お湯の入った楽焼きの上に載せて,蒸しながら食べるというのが諫早のうなぎ料理の特徴です。今回自分がいただいたのはせいろ蒸しでしたが,やっぱりめちゃくちゃ美味しかったです。

 A special food in Isahaya city is the dishes prepared with eel. There are many restaurants serving that dishes along the Honmyo river which runs through Isahaya city. Eel is so expensive recently that I don’t have meals using it usually, but I gave it a try this time after a long time. The characteristic of Isahaya’s eel meals is that it is not only grilled but also steamed and served on a raku ware which contains hot water so that you can enjoy it being steamed. This time I had a different type of it called "Seiro Mushi", but It was also incredibly delicious.
