【福島/観光名所】大内宿/茅葺き民家が並ぶ会津西街道の宿場跡 – Ouchi-juku in FUKUSHIMA, JAPAN –

福島

大内宿は、福島県南会津郡にある、会津西街道の宿場跡。江戸時代に、会津若松市と日光今市を結ぶ重要な宿場町として栄えました。鉄道開通に伴い宿場は衰退しましたが、茅葺民家が建ち並ぶ集落は観光名所として今に受け継がれています。
大内宿は、奥羽山脈の1000m級の山々に囲まれた標高650mの南会津の山中にあります。全長約450mの旧街道沿いに茅葺き民家の民宿や土産物屋、蕎麦屋などが多数立ち並びます。特に蕎麦は、高遠そばの名で知られ、箸の代わりにネギを用いて蕎麦を食べる変わった風習が残っています。 大内宿は、日本海側気候に属しており、夏はフェーン現象で暑く冬は豪雪となる地域でもあります。
昭和56年(1981年)に重要伝統的建造物群保存地区に選定され、福島を代表する観光地の一つとなっています。また、住民憲章を作って、貴重な家屋を「売らない・貸さない・壊さない」の三原則を守り、景観保存と伝統的な屋根葺きの技術習得、継承に取り組んでもいます。

Ouchi-juku is a former post station on the Aizu West Highway in Minamiaizu-gun, Fukushima Prefecture. During the Edo period (1603-1867), it flourished as an important post town connecting Aizu-Wakamatsu City and Nikko Imaichi. With the opening of the railroad, the post town has declined, but the village with thatched roof houses has been handed down as a tourist attraction to this day.
Ouchi-juku is located in the mountains of Minamiaizu at an elevation of 650 m, surrounded by the 1,000 m mountains of the Ou Mountains. Along the 450-meter-long old highway, there are many thatched-roof private residences, souvenir shops, and soba noodle shops. The soba noodles, in particular, are known as “Takato soba,” and there is an unusual custom of eating soba noodles with green onions instead of chopsticks. Ouchi-juku has a climate on the Sea of Japan side, with hot summers and heavy snowfalls in winter due to the foehn phenomenon.
In 1981, it was selected as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings, and has become one of Fukushima’s representative tourist destinations. The local residents have established a charter and are working to preserve the landscape and acquire and pass on traditional roofing techniques by adhering to the three principles of “do not sell, do not rent, and do not destroy” the valuable houses.
