エストニアの..

日本語
エストニアの首都、タリン。私たち日本人にとって異国の地であるはずのこの街が、折に触れてノスタルジックな感慨をもたらすのはなぜだろう。行儀よく並んだ古い建物の間には、石畳の細い道が続き、街の情景に身を委ねて目的もなくひたすら歩きたくなる。他のヨーロッパ諸国ではすでに失われつつある、中世の息づかいに耳を傾け、時代が匂い立つような街角に佇んでみよう。

Tallinn is the capital of Estonia. I wonder why we get nostalgic deep emotion occasionally even though this town is actually a foreign land for us Japanese people. There are narrow cobbled paths between old buildings that are elegantly lined and that makes me want to walk freely without any purpose giving myself to the town scenes. I stand lingering at a corner where the atmosphere is like the medieval age breathing which has been lost already in other European countries.
