Abstract: 明庵栄西禅師は、日本の臨済宗の開山として知られているが、茶湯の世界では、栄西が、抹茶と南宋時代の中国で流行っていた喫茶を紹介したことで有名である。栄西は、2度中国へ渡ったが、日本へ臨済宗の教えと抹茶の実を持ち帰って来たとされているのは、その2度目、建久2年(1191)、長崎県の平戸に帰着した時である。栄西は、一般 的に背振霊仙寺(現在の佐賀県)で、日本で初めて茶を栽培したとされる。しかし、帰着後、滞在していた平戸にも、栄西の茶の遺跡があり、この論文は、平戸での栄西の茶と禅の遺跡について論ずる。
Description: Buddhist monk Minnan Eisai is popularly known as the founder of the Japanese Rinzai school of Buddhism and is often credited with the introduction of Zen Buddhism to Japan. He is also known as the person who introduced matcha tea from China to his home country. Eisai arrived back in Japan at the island of Hirado, but his stay here is hardly mentioned in any work on either Eisai or matcha tea. This paper will discuss the reasons for Eisai’s travel to China and will investigate the traces Eisai left in Hirado on his return. It will discuss the possibility that he first taught Rinzai in Hirado and also cultivated tea there.
