30 Suenomatsuyama hill

30 Suenomatsuyama hill

This hill has been regarded as the symbol of romance in poetry. Many literatures and paintings in the Edo period chose this place as their subject matter, depicting pine trees on top of a hill, with tombstones standing in rows at their feet. In his famous work titled “Oku no Hosomichi”, MATSUO Basho described his sad sentiment provoked by the contrast between romance and its impermanence respectively symbolized by the entwined branches of pine trees and by the tombstones.
