Clinic building with the bricks of the former clinic founded about 120 years ago, by the father of Mokichi Saito, the famous Japanese poet.

 

Mokichi Saitō (斎藤 茂吉 Saitō Mokichi, May 14, 1882 – February 25, 1953) was a Japanese poet of the Taishō period, a member of the Araragi school of tanka, and a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist Shigeta Saitō (Japanese Wikipedia article) is his first son, the novelist Morio Kita is his second son and the essayist Yuka Saitō is his granddaughter. Mokichi was born in the village of Kanakame, now part of Kaminoyama, Yamagata in 1882. He attended Tokyo Imperial University Medical School and, upon graduation in 1911, joined the staff of Sugamo Hospital where he began his study of psychiatry. He later directed Aoyama Hospital, a psychiatric facility. site: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mokichi_Sait%C5%8D

 

昔「ドクトルマンボウ航海記」が好きでした。北杜夫の父が斎藤茂吉で、二人とも精神科医斎藤茂吉の父も医者だったのは初めて知った。医者一家だったのですね。これは、北杜夫の祖父で、斎藤茂吉の父であった斎藤紀一が最初に建てた病院のレンガです。記憶の痕跡があるものは、見ていて想像力がわきますね。
