傷心惨目の碑
明治2(1869)年5月11日、箱館戦争最大の激戦が箱館の市街地で行われた。当時の高龍寺は、もっと坂の下にあり、旧幕府脱走軍の箱館病院分院にあてられたが、同日、新政府軍の先鋒隊が乱入し、傷病兵らを殺傷して寺に放火し、会津遊撃隊の者が多数犠牲となったという。
明治12(1879)年高龍寺は移転、翌13年に旧会津藩有志がこの碑を建て、惨殺された藩士を供養した。
碑面「傷心惨目」は、中国、唐の文人李華の作「古戦場を弔う文」からとったもので、文字は中国南宋の忠臣岳飛の真跡を写したものである。

MEMORIAL OF “SHOSHIN ZAMMOKU”
On May 11, 1869(Meiji 2) the fiercest battle of Hakodate War was fought in downtown Hakodate. At that time Koryuji Temple was located at the foot of the slope where it stands now and it was used as a branch of Hakodate Hospital for deserted soldiers of the old Shogunate army.
On this day spearhead force of the new government’s army burst into the temple and killed the sick and wounded in bed, then set fire to the temple. The Aizu clan forces which fought against the new government paid dearly in human cost in this battle.
In 1879 (Meiji 12) Koryji Temple was moved to its present location and the following year the supporters of the Aizu clan erected this monument in memory of those who were murdered in this attack.
The Chinese characters on the monument read, “Shoshin Zammoku” or “mourning an ancient battlefield.” These are the words of Rika, a Chinese literary man of the Tang period (618-906). The characters were traced over the genuine writing of Gakuhi, a faithful retainer of Southern Sung(1127-1278), China.
