手しごとAKIU

The home of craftmaking , Akiu
手しごとの里、秋保

仙台の都心からほど遠くないところ、緑豊かな森と
自然林が広がり、名取川には清らかな水の流れが踊る。
名泉「名取の御湯」で古くから知られ、四季折々
自然の豊かさにあふれた秋保の里に住む喜び。

Not so far from the heart of Sendai lies rich forests and natural groves,
where clear waters dance in the Natori rivers.
The village of Akiu has long been known for its famous spring,
Natori no Miyu, which offers visitors the joy of life here,
and the abundant nature of every season.

The verdant nature nurtures
the hearts of craftsmakers
豊かな自然が育む「ものづくり」の心

この恵まれた環境に惹かれて、いつの頃からか
工房や店や農園を営む人たちが集まりはじめ、
ここにものづくりのネットワークが生まれ、大量生産品にはない、
「手しごと」のあたたかみやユニークなテーストを持った
作品や物産が胚胎させられています。

A network of craftmakers has formed here, with people drawn in
by the blessed environment, amid which they create workshops,
stores, and farms. These craftsmen and artisans connect with
the rich nature through their sense, stimulate their desire to create,
and train themselves to create hand made work ("Teshigoto") filled
with warmth and unique taste that cannot be found in mass produced products.

秋保湯本町MAP

仙台中心部から車で約40分、秋保温泉郷の歴史は古く、6世紀に天皇より「名取の御湯」の称号を賜って以来、江戸時代には、伊達家の入湯場として大切に守られてきました。温泉郷には秋保大滝、二口渓谷、磐司岩など見どころが数多くあります。 1980年代以降、秋保の自然の中に創作活動の場を求めて「秋保工芸の里」などが誕生して以来、秋保町に多くの手しごとの作家・工芸家が工房・店舗を構えるようになりました。

The home of Teshigoto (craftmaking), Akiu
Located around 40 minutes from central Sendai by car, Akiu Hot Springs have a long history with them being given the name Natori no Onyu by the emperor in 6th century. Since then, in the Edo Period, they were carefully protected as the baths of the Date family. In the vicinity, you can find several sights, such as Akiu Otaki Falls, Futakuchi Gorge, and Banji Rock. In April 1988, Akiu Craft Park was created, with people seeking a place to perform creative activities in amongst the nature of Akiu. Following its creation, numerous artists and industrial craftsmen have chosen to set up their studios and shops in the Akiu area.
