THAT IS GOOD THAT IS GOOD

5月10日 世界遺産 高野山 金剛三昧院にて、Tsuyoshi Suzukiさんをお迎えし、天然記念物にも指定され金剛三昧院の春の名物でもある大石楠花おおしゃくなげが咲き誇る中、撮影を行ってきました。

On May 10, we welcomed Tsuyoshi Suzuki to Koyasan Kongosanmaiin, a temple registered as a World Heritage site, to shoot a film in the midst of blooming rhododendrons, which are designated as a natural monument and are a specialty of Kongosanmaiin in spring.

愛染明王 Aizen Myoo

高野山は和歌山県の北部に位置し、世界遺産に「紀伊山地の霊場と参詣(さんけい)(どう)」として登録される周囲を1000m級の山々に囲まれた山上の盆地で、標高約800mに寺院を中心とした街並みが広がる、日本の仏教聖地の1つです。元々「一山(いっさん)境内地(けいだいち)」といわれ高野山全体が寺の境内と考えられ、元来は高野山真言宗総本山金剛峯寺と同義とされてきました。その中で高野山真言宗の別格本山の寺院として宿坊を有し、愛染(あいぜん)明王(みょうおう)を本尊とするのが、世界遺産の構成要素の一つでもある金剛(こんごう)三昧院(さんまいいん)です。

Koyasan, located in the northern part of Wakayama Prefecture, is a mountainous basin surrounded by mountains of 1,000 meters in height, and is registered as a World Heritage Site as “the Kiisanchi no Reijo to Sankeimichi”. (Sacred Sites and Pilgrimage Routes in the Kii Mountain Range and Surrounding Cultural Landscapes.) Originally, the entire Koyasan area was considered to be the precincts of a temple called “Issan keidaichi”, which was originally synonymous with Koyasan Shingon Buddhism Kongobuji Head Temple. Among them, Koyasan Kongosammaiin, one of the components of the World Heritage Site, has lodgings (called Shukubo) as a separate head temple of the Koyasan Shingon sect and has Aizen Myoo as its principal deity.

今回は前日から宿坊に宿泊させて頂き、本尊の鎮座する本堂の目の前、そしてちょうど見どころを迎えた樹齢400年以上の株もあると伝わる大石楠花の横で、TsuyoshiさんにDJプレイを披露して頂きました。
早朝から読経を収録させて頂きそのままプレイの中にミックス、高野山の静謐(せいひつ)な雰囲気にもマッチした演奏をお楽しみください!!

This time, we were allowed to stay at a lodging house from the day before, and Tsuyoshi gave a DJ performance right in front of the main hall where the principal image of the temple is enshrined, and next to the large rhododendron, some of which are said to be over 400 years old, which was just in its prime. We recorded the sutra reading early in the morning and mixed it directly into the play. Please enjoy the performance that also matches the tranquil atmosphere of Koyasan!

また、近日中に、金剛三昧院や高野山の詳しいお話しや、高野山とTsuyoshiさんの意外な繋がりなど、撮影秘話やバックストーリーをUPします。

In the near future, we will also update the secret story of the shooting and the backstory, including detailed stories about Kongosanmaiin and Koyasan, plus the unexpected connection between Koyasan and Tsuyoshi.

こちらからどうぞ!!
I hope you enjoy it from here too!
