世界の終りとハードボイルド・ワンダーランド

羊をめぐる冒険の旅からはや1年半。とある事情により、やみくろを探さなければならないことになったオカダは、東京へ向けて旅立った。

Hardboileds01

旅のバイブルは、もちろん村上春樹 世界の終りとハードボイルド・ワンダーランド〈上〉 新潮文庫(81年版)。

 エレベーターはきわめて緩慢な速度で上昇をつづけていた。おそらくエレベーターは上昇していたのだろうと私は思う。しかし正確なところはわからない。あまりにも速度が遅いせいで、方向の感覚というものが消滅してしまったのだ。あるいはそれは下降していたのかもしれないし、あるいはそれは何もしていなかったのかもしれない。ただ前後の状況を考えあわせてみて、エレベーターは上昇しているはずだと私が便宜的に決めただけの話である。ただの推測だ。根拠というほどのものはひとかけらもない。十二階上って三階下り、地球を一周して戻ってきたのかもしれない。それはわからない。

冒頭の部分。まさにハードボイルドな文章。痺れるほどかっこいい。これぞまさに春樹ワールド。

Dug01

東京に着き、羽田から五反田を経由して新宿へ。やみくろについての聞き込みをしようと、村上春樹が学生時代によく通ったというジャズ喫茶「DUG」へ。当時は別の場所にあり、店名も「DIG」だったそうだけど、雰囲気は当時のままらしい。

Baguru

コーヒーの他に、ハムとキュウリとチーズのサンドウィッチを注文しようとしたのだけど、メニューになかったので、代わりに生ハムとカマンベールチーズのベーグルサンドを頼んだ。コーヒーは香り・苦みとも強くて美味しく、ベーグルも適度な固さだった。

壁に埋め込まれたスピーカーから流れるジャズを聞きながら、村上春樹がコーヒーを飲み、「ギャツビー」を読んでいる様子を思い浮かべてみた。

店内はお客がいっぱいで、渋めの小林聡美といった感じのママさんと、目のくりくりっとした、女優のタマゴといった雰囲気の女の子らがコマネズミのように忙しく働いていたので、やみくろについて訊くこともできず、店を後にした。

Hyatt02

別の用事を済ませ、ホテル「センチュリーハイアット東京」へ。

Hyatt01

巨大なシャンデリアが天井から降ってきそうなロビー。だが、ここのフロントでも、やみくろについての情報は得られなかった。

Yakei

久しぶりの東京。刺激が多すぎて、脳がオーバーフローでも起こしたのか、なかなか寝付けない。高層ビル群を眺めながら、ビールを飲んで気分をほぐした。

こうして第1日目の冒険は終わった。果たして明日からはどんな冒険が待っているのだろうか。

(不定期に続く)

ひょえぇぇ〜!!
この連休はそんなところへおいでだったとは!
お疲れだったとは思いますが、楽しんだご様子で何よりです♪
ベーグルサンドも美味しそう。

やっぱり地下に行って、汚水でも飲んでみなければやみくろは見つからないのかも知れませんねえ。

って、読んでないひとが言ってはいけませんねえ(爆

オカダさん こんばんは。
好きな人の形跡をたどる・・・なんちゃってストーカーみたいですけど、わくわくしますよね~。しかも最後のホテル、超豪華ですね!

「世界の~」はなんと81年のものなんですね(゜o゜) そしてその場面って、ポケットの中の小銭を手の感触だけで合計するっていうところにつながりませんでしたっけ? 私はその場面が好きです。

不定期ということですが、次回を楽しみにしています♪

Posted by: ciao* | 2007.02.13 at 11:36 PM

オカダさん、お洒落でハードボイルドな旅、お疲れ様でした。
やみくろを探すのに、ちゃんとペーパークリップを忘れずに持って行きましたか? 
「DIG」の次は「DUG」というのは、いいネーミングです。そういうのって結構好きです。素敵でなんだか懐かしい感じのする喫茶ですね。そしてサンドイッチがとてもとても美味しそうです。
次回の冒険も楽しみにしています。

ヤヤーさん、こんばんは。

オタクで出不精のオカダではありますが、今回久々に遠出しました。
天候にも恵まれ、久しぶりに都会の空気を味わいました。

>やっぱり地下に行って、汚水でも飲んでみなければやみくろは見つからないのかも知れませんねえ。

さすが、読んでなくてもわかるんですね(^_^.)。

Posted by: オカダ | 2007.02.14 at 05:39 PM

ciao*さん、こんばんは。

ふと思いついて今回はこういう企画にしました。
ホテルも、普段ならビジネスホテルにするところを、ちょっと訳あって奮発しました(笑)。

すみません、間違えてました。「世界の~」の単行本が出たのは85年で、この文庫本は88年版でした。

ポケットの中の小銭を手の感触だけで合計するっていうのは、上で引用したとこの後に出てきます。左右別々に数えるというのが独特で、オカダも印象に残ってます。主人公のキャラ、心理状況を巧く描写した名場面でしたね。

>不定期ということですが、次回を楽しみにしています♪
ありがとうございます。

Posted by: オカダ | 2007.02.14 at 05:51 PM

柚木さん、こんばんは。

そうなんですよ、ペーパークリップ持っていくのを忘れたんですよ。そのせいで……。

「DUG」は、いかにも歴史のあるジャズ喫茶らしい佇まいでした。ベーグルサンドも美味しかったです。あとは、あんなに混んでなければ、なんて勝手を言ってはいけませんよね。

>次回の冒険も楽しみにしています。
ありがとうございます。

あああ、おっしゃって頂ければ

そう言って頂いて嬉しいです。残念ながら今回は、旧友との予定で一杯だったので、また次の機会によろしくお願いします。

>僕はこの週末に四国に初上陸したのでした

ホントにやれやれ、でしたね。
