繋がる点と点(re:日本一周#20)

四国一周を終えて広島に戻って来た

そんな今日は竹原市の道の駅からスタート

竹原の道の駅で出会ってお世話になった一つ年上の旅人さんとも別れを告げて、一路西へ。

今日も相変わらず快晴

竹原から東広島→呉とのどかな山道を走る

棚田が広がる夏の風景だ

蝉の鳴き声とカエルの鳴き声がのどかに響く

登り坂でかいた汗を冷やそうと、途中のコンビニで休憩していたら、「なんか好きなものでも買い」と言って1000円札を握らせてくれた心優しいおばさんがいた。

そんな優しさに背中を押されながら山を越えると、遂に広島市街が近づいてくる

広島市は中国地方で1番のビックシティ

ビルも立ち並ぶ大きな都市だ

しかし、平和記念公園に近づくと、そんな都会の空気感は一変する

都市の中に突然聖域が現れた

肌感的にはそんな感覚

その感覚が間違っていないことを、平和記念資料館に入って実感する

世界で初めての原子爆弾被害の生々しい惨状

皮膚が焼けただれた男の子

子供を守ったまま焼け死んだお母さん

跡形もなく消えて、影だけが生きてきた証として残った人間

即死しなくても、多くの人はヤケドの喉の渇きを癒すために川に飛び込んで溺死

ボロボロの着衣

溶けて歪んだガラス

展示品や写真の数々に言葉が出なかった

たかだか70年昔なだけなのに、想像も出来ない世界が広がっていた

人々の生活は一瞬で無くなり、

その人の大切な人たちは一瞬で亡くなり…

何も知らない18歳の俺が言葉で伝えるのもお門違いなんじゃないか、この惨状の今更何を言葉にすることがあるのだろうか。必死で考えた

歴史は好きな方だった

センター試験も日本史だけは100点だったし

他の人たちより歴史に関しては自信があった

だから今までも自慢のように日本の歴史を人に語っていたし、教科書だけの知識で全てを知っているかのような気分になっていた

そんな自分が死ぬほど恥ずかしくなった

まだ18歳の自分より歳下の子供たちが、必死で戦っていた

自分の生まれた時代の不条理と、自分の大切な人たちを守るために。

そして死んでいった

少し頭の中を整理できなくなる

展示館に入った時から、入ってくる情報量と、考える精神のすり減り方が多すぎた

そっと展示室を出る

真夏の太陽の下を、まだ整理できない頭のまんまにフラフラ歩く

歩いていると、観光客の方が列を作って並んでいる場所があった

先頭の人たちはお決まりのように黙祷を捧げている。外国の方も日本の方も関係なく、ただ一つの方向へ黙祷を捧げている

自分も吸い込まれるようにその列の最後尾に並ぶ

先頭が近づくにつれてその場所がどんな場所か分かってきた

安らかに眠ってください
あやまちは繰り返しませんから

慰霊碑に向かって必死で目をつぶった

黙祷を捧げたところで何も変わらないかもしれない。だけど外国の方も、日本の方も、変わらない気持ちで黙祷を捧げている。その光景を見て、少し目の奥が熱くなる

戦争の時代を強く生き抜いてくれた世界の人々に言いたくなった

「この世界は少しずつ変わっているよ」って

だってさ、肌の色も生まれた国も年齢も、そんなこと何も関係なく、「1人の人間」として、平和に祈りを捧げる人たちがそこにいたから。

これはぼくらの叫びです
これは私たちの祈りです
世界に平和をきずくための

原爆で亡くなった女の子の像には今でも折り鶴を捧げられた

一羽だけ折ってみた

アメリカから来た若い夫婦に、折り方を教えた

日本人とアメリカ人としてではなく、1人の人間として折り鶴の折り方を教えた

原爆ドームの前に立つ

むき出しの鉄骨と骨組み、色あせた色は70年前のあの日から何一つ変わっていない

1945年8月6日 快晴の1日だったと聞く

2016年8月20日 この日も良く晴れていた

ただそれだけなのに

初めて「実感として」戦争を感じた

今までは点と点の出来事として歴史を認識していた。だから1945年のことは1945年のことで、もう終わっていること。2016年の点とは繋がるわけがない、と。

でも確かに「今」の点と「1945年」の点は繋がっている。

空がこんなに青いのは昔から変わらないし、原爆ドームが確かにここに立っているのも変わらない。人がたくさん死んだのも変わらないし、その歴史があって今の俺たちがいるのも変わらない。そんな当たり前のことも実感できていなかったけど、あの日と同じように「空が青い」というだけで、確かに点と点は線で繋がった

綺麗事ばっか抜かすなって言われるかもしれないけどさ、平和記念公園はきっと世界で一番負の歴史が詰まっているのと同時に、世界で一番人々の心が綺麗になる場所なんだよ

1945年には絶望の場所だったかもしれないけど2016年には希望の場所だと思うから

綺麗事の一つや二つ垂れ流しても文句を言われる筋合いないはずだ

どこまでも青い空がこれから続くように

そうやってそっと思いながら、原爆ドームを後にする

しばらくは不思議な気持ちで広島市を走った

未だにこの大都会が焼け野原だったのが信じられなくて。

だけどそのうちそんなふわふわした気持ちも消えていた。大事なのは、平和記念公園で学んだことで自分自身が変わって行くことだと思ったから。

大切な場所がまた一つ増えた。

国道2号をひたすら西へ、

次に向かったのは日本三景 安芸の宮島だ

世界遺産でもある宮島までは宮島口からフェリーで10分かかる

日本三景の宮島は、とにかく美しかった

鹿が迎えてくれて

情緒あふれる参道を進む

厳島神社に辿り着くと、そこには浮世離れした美しい風景が待っていた

赤を基調とした由緒正しい建造物

満潮になると海に浮かぶ神社となる

千と千尋を思わせるような不思議な空間だ

たくさんの人が干潮の大鳥居まで歩いていく

こんなに美しい神社は初めてみた

そんな宮島をずっと堪能していたかったけど、日が暮れる前に目的地に辿り着かなければ

今日の目的地は山口県最初の都市 岩国だ

残り40キロほどをラストスパートで走る

そして午後四時には山口県に入って岩国に辿り着く。

いよいよ九州に入るのが見えて来た

走行距離 100キロ

広島県竹原市→山口県岩国市

総走行距離 2456キロ

  • 自分も日本一周旅の途中で見学しました
    折しもどこかの修学旅行と重なったようで、女子学生がワイワイ騒ぎながら入って来ました
    溶けて変形したガラス瓶
    爆発時刻を示して止まった時計
    石段に焼き付いた影
    炭化してもはや人の形を成していない無残な遺体
    それらを見ていて、ふと周りが静かになっていたのに気づきました
    あれだけやかましかった女子高生達が神妙な顔つきで黙って資料を見つめていたのです
    原爆が残した“負の遺産”は今でも
    圧倒的な力で全ての人を黙らせてしまう

  • Great goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and
    you’re just extremely wonderful. I actually like what you’ve acquired here,
    certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it.

    You make it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it smart.
    I can’t wait to read much more from you. This is really
    a wonderful web site.

  • Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is important and all. But just imagine if you
    added some great pictures or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this
    blog could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.
    Excellent blog!

  • Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out your
    website on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone ..

    I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb
    site!

  • Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog
    and I’m inspired! Very useful information specifically the closing part 🙂 I deal with
    such information much. I used to be looking
    for this particular information for a very lengthy time.
    Thank you and good luck.

  • Howdy! This article could not be written much better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept talking about this. I most certainly will send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a great read. I appreciate
    you for sharing!

  • Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think of if
    you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips,
    this blog could certainly be one of the best in its niche.

    Fantastic blog!

  • Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.

    You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your
    intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could
    be giving us something informative to read?

  • I simply had to say thanks yet again. I do not know the things I would have made to happen in the absence of those ways contributed by you relating to such a theme. It previously was a real terrifying circumstance in my circumstances, but noticing your specialized fashion you processed the issue forced me to jump with gladness. I’m happy for your information and then believe you comprehend what a powerful job that you’re getting into educating some other people through the use of a web site. I know that you have never come across any of us.

  • Its like you learn my thoughts! You appear to understand a lot approximately this, such
    as you wrote the book in it or something. I believe that you just could do with some p.c.
    to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, that is great blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  • I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I never found any fascinating article like yours.

    It’s pretty value sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the web will likely be
    a lot more useful than ever before.

  • It’s the best time to make some plans for the longer term and
    it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this publish
    and if I could I wish to recommend you few fascinating issues or suggestions.

    Perhaps you can write subsequent articles regarding this article.
    I want to read even more things about it!

  • Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to
    do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.
    Kudos

  • Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  • I want to express appreciation to you just for rescuing me from this problem. Right after browsing through the online world and obtaining opinions which were not beneficial, I believed my entire life was done. Living devoid of the approaches to the problems you have resolved by means of your good write-up is a critical case, and the ones that would have badly damaged my career if I hadn’t encountered your site. Your good capability and kindness in dealing with all the stuff was helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a subject like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your high quality and effective guide. I will not think twice to recommend the blog to any individual who would need guidance on this situation.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • I precisely desired to say thanks once again. I’m not certain the things that I might have used in the absence of the entire opinions revealed by you regarding that question. It had become a real difficult concern in my position, nevertheless spending time with your specialised avenue you resolved the issue made me to jump over joy. I’m just grateful for this advice and even wish you comprehend what a great job that you’re carrying out instructing most people all through your webpage. I know that you have never got to know any of us.

  • Short haircuts for fine wavy hair, know the cutest short haircuts which look best on your round face shape. The best short haircuts for ladies with round faces.

  • Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  • This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
