聖リ瀧
Hijiridaki (Hijiri Fals)
聖リ瀧(通称:聖滝)は、一級河川緑川水系笹原川にある滝で、高さ(落差約31m、幅(滝口)
約 9.5mを測ります。その名前は、滝の中腹にある岩が水に打たれて修行している僧侶の
姿に似ていることに由来します。
寛政3年(1791)正月、熊本藩主8代細川斉茲が矢部に狩りに訪れた際に、千滝および
五老ヶ滝を見学したことがきっかけとなり、御抱絵師に国中の山川や湿布の風景を描く
ように命じました。これを受けて、寛政5年(1793)2月に完成したのが《領内名勝図巻)
です。これに描かれている聖リ瀧は、現在と大きな相違はなく、当時の大名が好んだ風景
観をうかがう上で、図巻自体とともに貴重な価値を有しています。
平成23年4月には、熊本県を代表する阿蘇火山によって形成された地質学的特徴を
象徴的に示すものとして、熊本県天然記念物に指定されています。
Hijiridaki (or Hijiri Falls) is a waterfall located on the Sasahara River, a major tributary in the Class A Midori River system.
The waterfall measures around 31 meters in height and around 9.5 meters in width. Hijiridaki takes its name from a rock
on the mountainside below the waterfall. The rock looks like a Buddhist monk sitting under the waterfall as part of his
ascetic training.
Hijiridaki's rise to prominence started when the 8th feudal lord of Kumamoto, Hosokawa Narishige, came to Yabe to hunt,
during New Year in the 3rd year of Kansei (1791). At that time he visited Gorougataki and Sendaki waterfalls, and was so
impressed with them that he ordered his personal artist to paint the mountains, rivers, waterfalls and other scenery within
his domain, including Hiridaki, In the second month of the 5th year of Kansei (1793), the artist completed his work and
called it "Ryūnai Meishō Zukan” (“An Anthology of Scenic Views in the Domain” ). Hijiridaki has changed very little since it
was painted. Both the waterfall and the Ryõnai Meishō Zukan are as precious now as they were when the feudal lords
admired them so many years ago.
In April 2011, Hijiridaki was designated a Prefectural Natural Monument by Kumamoto Prefecture, in recognition of its symbolic
geological characteristics that were formed by Mt. Aso, one of the most famous features of Kumamoto Prefecture.
