Chiyogasaki district 千代ヶ崎 "Chiyo peninsula"
Meguro, 目黒区三田二丁目 Mita second district, 目黒一丁目 Meguro first district



In the Edo period, this district bordered to 三田 Mita, 上大崎 Kamiosaki, 中目黒 Nakameguro and 下目黒 Shimomeguro.

The name refers to an old story about Nitta Yoshioki and his concubine, 千代 Chiyo.
Yoshioki was killed in 1358.
When Chiyo heard of his death. she said
"If I die too, I will be able to be at his side for ever!" and drowned in the pond of the estate.
The villagers respected her death and called the pond now
Chiyo ga Ike 千代が池 Pond of Lady Chiyo.


歌川広重 Utagawa Hiroshige


Until about 1935, the pond was still there, but now we only have the print of Hiroshige to enjoy the view.


また、千代が崎には、こんなエピソードも残されている。「松平主殿頭の屋敷内に三基の異様な灯ろうがあった。この灯ろうは大正15年に大聖院(目黒区下目黒三丁目1番)に移されたのだが、それが十字の型をした切支丹灯ろうであることがわかり、この地が潜伏切支丹の遺跡ではないかと大騒ぎになった」のである。

Beside other famous spots in Meguro to watch Mount Fuji, this was one of them.

People came here to enjoy the cherry blossoms in spring, the autumn moon and the snow in winter.
The estate of the 松平 Matsudaira clan and the 肥前島原藩 Shimabara han domaine were located here.
