Tajima region, located in the northern part of Hyogo prefecture is famous for its beautiful natural scenery. There is the Gokuraku-zenji temple, where Daidou Nishigaki served as chief priest, in Kinosaki-chou town, Tajima region. The town is well known as a hot spring resort. Recently it has become very popular among many foreign visitors to Japan because they can enjoy its old streets and atmosphere besides natural scenery.
In this artwork, the calligraphic work of “Sankou Wagakokoro-wo Sumasimu” by Daidou Nishigaki means that mountain scenery makes our mind clear and pure. We can see Daidou Nishigaki’s love for the nature in this area through this work. The depiction of swimming ayu sweetfish makes us feel the workings of nature in Tajima region.
