 The Imanishi Family (今西家) is the descendant of Tochi-no-agatanushi (十市県主) who lines to the Kotoshironushi-no-god(事代主神), son of Ohkuninushi-no-god(大国主神), originating from TochimiagatanimasuShrine (十市御縣坐神社). This is why we named our organization the Public Interest Foundation Corporation, Association for Preservation of the Imanishi House.

Public Interest Foundation Corporation, Association for Preservation of the Imanishi House carries out conservation work, management and publication of important cultural property the Imanishi Houses and the surrounding areas, not only ancient documents and antique art goods passed down to the House. Public Interest Foundation Corporation, Association for Preservation of the Imanishi House also conducts research on the set properties and thereby contributes to the development of academic culture. (Public Interest Foundation Corporation, Association for Preservation of the Imanishi House Article 1 article)

 

The Imai City, the largest traditional important building conservation districts in Japan located in Kashihara City, Nara Prefecture is not displaying things like in museums and arts galleries. The value of the Imai City is that the city keeps valuables and precious things still being utilized in daily life even in this modern days.

 

In the Sengoku period, the Imai City fought against Oda Nobunaga, the superpower at that time on the side of the Ishiyama Honjyo Temple, making the castle mouth into a fortress. However, it was obliged to surrender since the Buddhist of the Ikko sect priest Kennyo offered a settlement, and then the City was allowed its autonomy on condition that it fills the triple moats by intercession of Tsuda Soukyu, master of tea ceremony. The Imanishi Family then took charge of the judiciary and administration of the city.

After that, the Imai City prospered deeply interacting with the Sakai City, which also prospered as a self-governing city, traded with Luzon and Hoi An, and thereby enjoyed its golden days.

Especially, tea ceremonies and tea houses prospered there related to Tenka San-so-sho(The three major tea ceremony masters), Mr. Imai Soukyu from the Imai family, Tsuda Soukyu, and Sen no Rikyu. The city was regarded as "the Sakai City as a top of sea / the Imai City as a top of land".

The free atmosphere persisted in the feudal era may be the reason why Oda Nobunaga and Tenka San-so-sho treated the Imai City so special.

While traditional townscapes are disappearing nationwide, we would like to deliver relaxation and feeling of "Furusato", our hometown, where the time seems to stop clocking, by inviting nursing streets, youth streets, crafts alleys, for example, in the Imai districts of 600 m ~320 m, and thereby enabling people to live on. 

As a city that foresees future design source we would like to continue our preservation activities in; 

“The Imai City with the Nobunaga's heart as a shield of the abandonment of his predecessor"

"With the breeze of living even now with the old townscape of the Imai town" 

"Holding a new dream to convey the mind of our ancestries from the Imai"

 

In the future, we plan to hold hands-on events while taking over history and tradition at important cultural property,the Imanishi House.

 

We intend to publicize the living traditional culture which is the basis of Japanese mind from the "Imai City", the Japan's largest important traditional building district.

We need your support and contribution in order to continue and expand our activities.

The contribution is appreciated, by unit of 5,000 yen from everybody including corporation, groups and individuals. Multiple unites of contribution are welcome.

【募款請求】

今西家是大國主神的兒子事代主神為家系的古代貴族.十市縣主的末裔,出身於十市御縣坐神社。因此,此法人稱為公益財團法人十市縣主今西家保護會。

此法人為重要文化財產今西家住宅和周邊景致及世代相傳的古代文獻、古代美術品等的保護維護管理以及在進行公開有效利用的同時進行相關的研究調查,以貢獻學術文化的發展為目的。(公益財團法人十市縣主今西家保護會訂款第一條)

建國的土地.在奈良縣橿原市有著日本最大的重要傳統建築物群保存地區的「今井町」,不像是在博物館或是美術館陳列著映入眼簾的事物可讓人感動,在日常生活中的今天仍思考著諸多正因此刻生存著而必須傳遞信息的事物。

雖然今井町在戰國時代與石山本願寺相呼應將護城河城塞化,並與時下的當權者.織田信長交手,但一向宗顕如為了提出協議和解而不得不投降,而依據堺的精通茶道之人.津田宗及的勸解後,在以三重的護城河填滿作為條件,被認可了自治權後,在今西家執行著審判和行政事務。

之後,同時與繁榮興盛的自治都市的堺更深入交流,也和呂宋島及會安進行交易,可稱之為黃金時期。

特別是創造出有「海之堺,陸之今井」之稱的茶法,成為「天下三宗 匠」今井出身的今井宗吉和今田宗吉等千利休,他們的茶室及舉但的茶會非常盛行。

像這樣織田信長或天下三宗匠有特殊待遇的背景下,或許在今井市有著讓您感受到盛開於封建時代之時自由的強烈意志之花的魅力也說不定。

現今全國各地的傳統街道正消逝中,今井市占地600m×320m,以介護筋、若者横丁、工芸家路地所構成,在國內不只是「長久居住的架構」,更是讓國外遠道而來的各位有著回到懷念的「故鄉」般的心靈療癒,還有傳遞時間停止般的輕鬆自在感至人心,我們認為這是我們的存在價值。

探訪有古老街道的今井後,可以洞悉未來的設計起源,

在「在祖先捨身的盾上,染著信長意志的今井街道」

同時「從古至今今井城市儼然的古老街道,編織著時代生活的氣息」

此刻我們堅信「祖先持續守護的思想,從今井傳遞而出的是嶄新的理想」

我們思考今後,在有著重要文化遺產的今西家,一邊傳承著歷史及傳統,一邊經營體驗事業等等。

為了從我國最大的重要傳統式建造物群保護地區「今井町」傳遞出是日本人心靈依靠的傳統文化,謹此懇求募款援助本法人。

以諸位的援助之下,持續舉辦更充實的活動,

由衷地希望各位可以成為我們的力量。

贊同企業宗旨的各法人、團體、個人可以以一單位5,000日圓(不論幾份)進行匯款。
