1

 

けふに知るいまだ知らざる事ありと抱返り渓谷われに知らしむ

 

today

Dakigaeri Valley

let me know

that I still have the unknown

… I realize it

 

抱返り渓谷に行くには、抱返り神社の鳥居をくぐって行かなければなりません。

We have to walk through under the torii of Dakigaeri Shrine so that we can get to the valley.

神の岩橋に群れとぶ赤蜻蛉うつろひ告ぐる季(とき)の使者かも

 

red dragonflies

flying around Rock Bridge of Gods

they might be

messengers telling about

the change of seasons

 

 

3

 

異世界に踏み入りたるか峡谷は未だ見ざるの錦秋にして

 

stepping into

the different world?

the valley

spreads golden autumn

I haven’t seen

 

 

4

 

茣蓙の石 緑青色の水に清む川の真中に陣取りあそぶ

 

Goza-no-Ishi

placing itself

amid the river

plays with limpid water

the color Rokusho

 

※ Goza means the woven rush mat.

It is said that Goza-no-Ishi is so large as to be able to lay some mats.  And the top of the stone is flat.

Rokusho is one of Japanese traditional colors and it is the color verdigris.

 

 

 

5

 

秘めたるの誓ひ新たに谷間(たにあい)の誓願橋をゆられつ渡る

 

renew

my secret vow—

being swayed

I cross Seigan Bridge

over a valley

 

Seigan means “vow”, “pledge” or “oath”.
 

 

6

 

山峡(やまあい)の光ともしきトンネルは現世(うつしよ)と遮断するかのごと

 

dark tunnels

among mountains …

scant light

runs through

as if cutting off this world …

 

 

7

 

手さぐりに進むごとトンネルを抜け深秋冴ゆる渓谷を見る

 

feeling my way

passing through tunnels …

I see

autumn deepen

and colorize the valley

 

 

8

 

飛泉瞬く間 滝つぼに流れ入り時をあつむる回顧の滝(みかえりのたき)

 

for a moment …

white splashes

flow down

to the basin

Mikaeri Fall gathers time

 

 

9

 

秋麗の光もてひとつとなりし山川の抱返り渓谷

 

all in one

the mountains are reflected

in the river

Dakikaeri Valley filled

with lucent autumn rays

 

 

10

 

一葉に一葉かさね銀杏葉は神の御前に祝ぎ舞ひにける

 

one leaf 

and one leaf —

ginkgo leaves

praising and dancing

before holy Gods’ shrine
