盛岡の印象

盛岡はいい街だ。私が思ういい街の条件として市内に「河が流れている」こともある。たとえば仙台も広島もそうだったな。旧市街はだいたいその河を中心に発展してきた歴史があり、古い建物が大事に使われていたりする。地方都市ではどんどんそういった趣が失われているところが多いなか、盛岡はかつての城下町の趣と県都の華やかさと「生きている街」の匂いがまだあった。
まあ、郊外に出れば国道4号バイパス沿いに巨大ショッピングモールがあったりして、いわゆる今時の地方都市っぽい感じになってしまうのだが。そう、全国どこへ行っても「リトル川越」や「リトル柏」みたいな国道16号もどきになってしまっているのですが・・・。

市内中心部の橋のたもとにこんな建物があった。

岩手銀行(旧盛岡銀行本店)のレンガ造りの建物。いいねぇ。
こういうものを大事にできるか、が、その街の顔を決めるような気がする。

ところで、バイパスを走っていたら不思議なデジャヴュに襲われた。
なぜか「Homac(旧石黒ホーマ)」や「ツルハドラック(旧クスリのツルハ)」、はたまた「そうご電器」なんて、北海道資本の店が多く、あ、「びっくりドンキー」もあったり、ここは札幌か小樽か旭川か?? なんだか初めて来た割には違和感がないぞ・・・。

追記:
どうやら盛岡は北海道資本(もしくは提携)の企業がいっぱいあるらしい。雪国連合か?ここから南下して全国展開中の企業もあり。

ちなみにHomacは東京まで進出、北関東には結構あるらしい。

 こっちでも売ってんのか?? <ありえず^^;;

そうご電器は一度倒産したようだが、名前は残ったみたい。
今回はどうもその看板を見たらしい。
