京都 阪口再生計画にあたって

 この地は京都の東山に位置しており、風水学でいうところの東、即ち龍脈にあたる。東に見える山には強いエネルギーがある。庭園は、そのエネルギーが凝集し大地の気を受け大きく発展できる龍穴に当る。龍脈(東山)を眺め、川や池(水)を形成し、丘を造り大地の気が循環する光景を想像し再生した。
携わった者の熱意と多くの方々の協力により再生が実現し、料亭「京都阪口」は生まれ変わった。 
 京都の東を司る四神の「青龍」にちなみ青龍苑と名づけられ、京の名舗が軒を連ねる清水産寧坂の新名所となるだろう。
100年後にも多くの人に愛され親しんでいただきたい。

  The Higashi-yama mountain area of Kyoto lies in the eastern dragon-pulse range according to the Study of Winds and Flowing Water. There is strong energy in these mountains seen to the east. Receiving this energy as it is condensed through the earth, the garden is like a growing, expanding dragon's lair. By viewing the dragon's pulse range (Higashi-yama), forming a river or lake (water), and making a hill, the garden was designed imagining a scene where the earth's energy circulates.
Through the enthusiasm of those participating in this project and the cooperation of many others, this restoration was actualized and Kyoto Sakaguchi was reborn. Named Seiyru-en after the Blue Dragon, one of the four directional gods, which rules the east side of Kyoto, it will surely become a new attraction among the fine shops of the capital lining Kiyomizu's Sannei-zaka. We sincerely hope that even after one hundred years it will be known and loved by many people.
