新宿・中井の「染の小道」 / Some no komichi (Alleys for dyed cloth) in Nakai, Shinjuku


2月末の週末に開催された、新宿・中井の「染の小道」というイベントに足を運んだ。前回の投稿では街並みを紹介したが、こちらでは主役の染め物を紹介したい。

川に欠けられた反物も美しかったが、店の入口に掛けられたのれんがよかったな。店に合わせて仕立てられたのれんを見て、調和を楽しんだり、ときに何の店か考えてみたり。

ガラス戸の店の中に掛けられていることがあって、どこまでカメラを向けていいやら考えたこともあった。一番困ったのは銭湯ののれんだったな。

On the last weekend of February, I went to an event called Some no Komichi, which means alleys for dyed cloth. I posted some photos of the town in the previous blog post, so here, I'd like to share some photos of dyed cloth hanging over the river, and some shop curtains made for the event.

I especially liked the shop curtains which were hanging only during the event weekend. It was fun to guess what shop or restaurant it was judging from the curtain.

When a curtain was hanging inside the shop, I was not sure if it was ok to point my camera to the inside of the shop. The most troubling curtain was the one at a public bath. I didn't want to be pointing my camera at it when wind lifted up the curtain ...




風が吹くとなかなか撮れない。
It was hard to capture it when wind was blowing.
いらっしゃいませ。
Irasshaimase.

間違いなく飲み屋。
It was a bar. Apparently.

インド料理屋っぽい。
It must be an Indian restaurant.

左の幕もイベント限定だろうか。
I didn't know if the left one was for the event.





銭湯。のれんがめくれると中が見えてしまう。
This is the curtain at the entrance of a public bath ...
外に掛けてほしかった。
The curtain should have been outside of the shop ...
もともとののれんとの調和。
I loved the harmony of the original curtain and the one for the event.
