40年前のニュータウンを歩いて

Posted on April 25, 2020 at 5:41 AM

関越自動車道を東松山方面に走ると
山裾の丘陵地にオレンジの屋根を連ねた
巨大なニュータウンが望まれる。

このニュータウンは40年前に分譲がはじまり、
平成8年の最終期の分譲価格は1億円を越える人気のニュータウンだった。

山を切り崩したなだらかな丘陵に
150平米を越える 5DK~の広い住宅が建ち並ぶ。

丘陵の頂きから なだらかな斜面に幾重にも住宅が並ぶ。

エリア毎に微妙なアレンジの変化が加えられていて
全体の街並みとして高級な雰囲気を醸し出している。

最寄りの駅からは乗用車で走ると20分かかる。

いくつかの大学のキャンパス。
動物園やゴルフ場。
そして山間のお寺札所。

カーブを登りきると
ニュータウンの中央通りに入っていくことになる。

そんな立地だから
他の街から完全に独立した
文字通り孤高の街になっている。

ちょうど私が社会人になった35年ほど前に
このニュータウンの分譲がたけなわだった。

たまたまこの街に私の担当する商店がオープンしたことで
このニュータウンに通うことになる。

その店は東京池袋の下町から転居してきたと記憶している。

この店の新規開店の日、
たくさんの家族連れが オープン記念の特典目当てもあって
長い行列ができた。

私は行列の整理係だった。
オープン数時間もすると
準備していた特典商品はなくなってしまうのどの盛況だった。

あわてて即興で明日の優先配布のチケットを
つくってお客さんに手渡ししたことを覚えている。

この街は将来は3200世帯、
1万人の人口になると言っていた。

それに合わせるように
商業基盤も拡充されていた。

まさに将来を約束された街だった。

久しぶりに あの頃の夢のニュータウンに車で通る機会があった。
私の ある意味 趣味の街歩き(車歩き)。

私の街歩きは思い返してみると
二十歳前 伊豆の踊り子を読んで、
旧天城峠から湯ヶ島 湯ヶ野 下田まで歩いた旅が最初だった。

あれから思いの向くままに さまざまな街を歩いてきた。
 
人の生活が刻まれるようになると・・歴史がはじまる。
人々の息遣いが街の空気感をつくっていくように
私には感じられる。

だから何気ない街の生業にも興味がわいてくる。

鎌倉のような古い街にも、
このニュータウンのような街にも

それぞれの家族や人の歴史が街に写されているように思う。

このニュータウンも
分譲開始して四十数年。人生で言えば半分の歳月を刻んだことになる。
年輪を重ねたて落ち着きのある街になっていた。
最初に見た頃の印象を裏切らないきれいな街並みだった。

時代は変わっても
永遠に高くなると信じていた土地価格も
増え続けると思っていた人口も
伸び続けると思っていた日本の経済も
いつしか昔のこととなった。

鴨長明 方丈記 ・・・・要約

行く川のながれは絶えずして、しかも同じ水てはない。

よどみに浮ぶ泡も消えたり出来たりするけれど同じ泡ではない。

世の中に生きる人も住まいもまた同じ。
(京都にて)

そんなものなのかも知れないなと、ちょっぴり思える年齢になった。

このニュータウンも子供達が独立していく
都心まで公共交通で2時間の距離。
人口減。
これからどう変わっていくのだろうか。

コロナで外出 出来なくなったので 
ふと あこがれのニュータウンを書いてみた。
