木曽・奈良井宿の駐車場

E0103
江戸の街道情緒を残す(でも寒い)奈良井宿

 余った青春18きっぷを使って、信州・伊那に行ってきた。

 伊那に住む留学時代からの友人Rに会って、うまくいけば高遠で満開の桜を眺めようという企画だったのだが、

 ……激しくさむい。

 気温、3度。

 天候、晴れ、ときどき吹雪。ところによって黄砂。

 意味が分からない。ていうか、満開の桜どころではない。

 今朝出かけるときに、コートを持って行くかどうか最後まで悩んだのだ。持ってきて良かった。僕の雨男も、ここまで来ると命がけだ。

 Rの最寄り駅で待ち合わせ、車で出発した。彼女が提示した3つのコースから、僕が最初に選んだのは「権兵衛トンネル」。今年2月に開通し、伊那と木曽を初めて直結した南信悲願の?トンネルだ。シブイ。

 高速道路のような立派な権兵衛トンネルを抜け、木曽路・奈良井宿に到着。馬籠などと並ぶ中山道十一宿のひとつで、約1kmの街道に、江戸時代の宿場町が保存されている。

「駐車代500円? 高いなあ」

 Rが言った。奈良井宿の駐車場が、有料500円というのが許せないようだ。どうせ買い物もしないのだし、カンパくらいの気持ちで500円くらい払ってあげようよ……というのは、旅行者の発想らしい。僕が払うから、という申し出を無視して、彼女は駐車場のおじさんに話しかけた。

「この辺全部有料なんですか? 伊那から来たんだけど、どこか無料でとめるとこないかねぇ?」

 地元の人同士ということで、馴れ馴れしく話しかけた方が良いのだそうだ。

 だが、おじさんに駆け引きは通じなかった。

「この辺は、みんな有料だよ。停めるなら、奥の坂の上がたくさん空いてるから」。

 しぶしぶ奥の駐車場まで車を走らせたが、ここにも「500円」の看板が見える。入口まで来て、彼女は引き返した。

「やっぱり、高い」

 再び最初の駐車場付近に戻り、辺りをうかがっている。

「ここにしよう」

 そう言って彼女が車を停めたのは、駐車場の横にある建築会社の駐車場だった。たしかに、週末で人影は見えないけれど、大丈夫だろうか。小心者の旅人は、びくびくしっぱなしである。結局何も問題なかったばかりか、4時すぎに車に戻ると、有料駐車場から係員の姿がすっかり消えていた。あんまり厳密なものではないらしい。

E0104
建築会社の裏は、中央線の旧線跡。ちょっとコーフンした

 夕方、伊那に戻ってから、Rは自分の母親に駐車場の話をした。

「駐車だけで500円も取るんだよ!」

 そんなにひどい話だったのか。観光地で500円というのは、別に高くない気がしたが、それはよそ者の感覚であるようだ。

「教えてあげればよかったわ。駅のほうに行けば、無料で停めるところがたくさんあったのに」

 そこまで把握しているお母さんもすごい。

 でも、東京に戻ってから考えると、確かに500円は高い、という気がしてきた。

 奈良井宿に滞在したのは1時間ちょっと。駐車代が500円ということは、だいたい15分100円ということになる。ふだん都内で生活しているときは、コイン駐車場に「15分100円」とあるのを見て、僕も「高い」と思っているのだ。駅弁を買うときも1000円くらいすぐ出すが、コンビニで1000円の弁当があったらまず買わない。普段の生活モードと、旅行のモードでは、金銭感覚が大きく変わるということだろう。

こら~脚色するなあ~
読んでいたらただのケチ家族ではないか~

母が言ったのは
「教えてあげればよかった。駅のほうに行ったら
 沢山とめるところがあったのに」
私が駐車場のおじさんには
「ばかみたい」ではなくて
「どこか無料でとめるとこないかねえ?」

田舎の人は何もない山奥で
駐車場代払いたくないんです。

南信悲願の権米トンネルって
脚色しすぎですわあ。

後半記事楽しみに待っています!

ああ、ごめんごめん。
実は、なんて言っていたかはっきり覚えていなくて、昨日2時間くらい悩んだのよ。
めいよに関わりますから、諸々修正しておきます。

ちなみに、記事の趣旨は最後の部分なんで、そこも厚くしておきました。
いつも読んでくれている人の話を書くのは難しいね。
気を悪くされていたら、ごめんなさい(^^)。

So, when Reach came out, and a few of my co-workers were getting very excited about it, I was interested. Burning software for Xbox 360 is not quite as simple as many other software programs. The Xbox 360 Welcome Channel is a great area for those new to the Microsoft Xbox 360, and modern gaming in general.

Read the latest video game reviews at our video game blog. The Ps3 comes with a one year warranty and Sony is usually good about honoring the repair. ) And third, the chances of Sony's next generation console being able to run either PS2 or PS3 games is looking remote.

Meatloaf recipes with herbs, spices and crunchy nuts. Organ meats of beef, lamb and chicken, rabbit and Goat meat, eggs not more than six in a week of Chicken (enriched source of Omega 3), Duck and Goose. I ended up using about a teaspoon of fine sea salt for this particular batch, but each batch may vary, so be sure to start with less than you think you need, and add more as you go.

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you need to write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but generally people don't discuss such subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

It has a 3D slider similar to a volume slider that lets you adjust the 3D depth. Acekard 2i designed for the Nintendo is a flash card exclusively produced for the Nintendo DSi XL console. With the ability of 3D in a handheld, some great features and a strong line-up of games the Nintendo 3DS will be the repeat success of it's younger brother.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd definitely appreciate it.
