The area
Address
Neighbourhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

堀川御池の交差点からほど近い場所に、秀吉の妙顕寺城跡の石碑がある。よほどの歴史マニアでなければ、この城の名前も知らないだろう。聚楽第ができるまで、秀吉の政庁があったとされ、今も古城町という地名が残っている。

押小路通小川通を西に入ったところに西福寺がありますがその前に豊臣秀吉妙顕寺城跡の石碑と駒札がが建っています。
西福寺との関係を調べてみると、この地は豊臣秀吉時代に妙顕寺城があったと言われ、後に西福寺が建立されました。住所はこの事から古城町と言われています。
また平安時代は藤原氏の邸宅閑院があったところで、それを示す駒札も立っています。確認ください。

 この日は喫茶マドラグで昼食後、堀川通からバスに乗ろうと押小路通りを歩いていて見つけた碑だ。そばの説明書きによると、秀吉は聚楽第を建設するまでこの地に建てた二条新邸を拠点に政務に臨んだという。もともと妙顕寺があり、移転させて建てた「城」で、濠をめぐらせ、天守を上げていたという。

西福寺の門前に碑が建っています。聚楽第を築く前に、秀吉が京における政庁として設けたとされる「妙顕寺城」の跡です。遺構などが残存しているわけでもなく、西福寺自体も公開されていませんから、面白いものではありません。

西福寺の門の前に碑と駒札が立っていました。豊臣秀吉が聚楽台を建てる前に京都における政治の拠点として築かれたそうです。もともとこの場所にあった妙顕寺を移転させてその跡地に城を築いたので「妙顕寺城」とのこと。遺構も何も残っていません。普段は前田玄以が住んでいたそうです。

日蓮宗の寺院妙顕寺を移転させて、京都での政庁として豊臣秀吉公が建てたものです。今ではモニュメントと説明書きしかなく、またどのような城かも分からないようです。

石柱と立て札のみ、見所はなんとも、、、まぁ歴史の爪痕ってこういう物だと割り切って周辺の散策のついでに立ち寄ってみれば良いんで無いかい。

二条城の近くに跡碑があります。妙顕寺は日像が開いた京都で最初の日蓮宗寺院です。秀吉は天正11年、大坂城造営に着手するとともに京都では妙顕寺を首都経営の拠点としました。それに伴い寺院としての妙顕寺は北方の寺之内地区にに移されたそうです。天正14年に聚楽第が造営されるとその拠点機能を失いました。この石碑は妙顕寺城の跡を示すものです。

西福寺の外塀前に碑と高札型説明板がありました。ここにあった妙顕寺を移転させ跡地に二條新邸を構築していたそうです。但し、当時の遺構は何も無く碑だけとなっていました。
