Town, Jimbocho of book.
The one of current main street Yasukuni Dori south. Jimbocho Sakura Street.

In this Sakura Street, the 25th one Kanou cool air summer festival was held.
We completely blockade big one block road.
Parking lot of Times becomes live venue.

Jimbocho with many ethnic foods.
As for plural booths of Indian dishes.

It is Shogakukan in Iwanami Shoten and yu*kaku, Shueisha.
Publishing company on behalf of Japan gives booth, too.
Booth of Jimbocho Branch of JTB can stand in line every year.

Gem that fragrance is felt as for "the Cha-soba" of 30 yen of Iwanami Shoten well.

In the looks of the sky that torrential rain is worried about
Sakura Street was filled with people.

In drum and the brass band of local Kanda Hitotsubashi junior high school
We attach flower to event.

Road is not thing dividing town
It is municipal facilities connecting town.

And local bond and power to support this event oo.
It was event to be reminded of such a thing by.

"Rainfall eagerly longed for" says that it sometimes rains
It becomes indeed depressed for a few days when we follow.

However, rain brightens color body comb, the leaf with green.
Place where such a rain matched was in Jimbocho.


"All Jimbocho love parks" in the neighbor of Jimbocho 2 chome elderly person center.
There is monument "learning from Chou Enlai here" there, western-style fountain and art object gaa of water
Anion will appear, or feeling feels at ease when here.

There are trash box divided properly, designated smoking space, restroom
Person or salesman working outside use very much.
It is full of people reading person, book to empty lunch into on day when it was fine.


Jitney which circulates through the ward led by welfare institution in front of elderly person center
"Pinwheel" (kaza) travels.
We play an active part as foot of elderly person and person with a physical disability
In fact, that anyone is available, and can get off anywhere; is superior, and is thing.


Small green park among high trees.

To swing for one standing still alone, far-off memory seems to waver.

Gentle time goes by here.

Recently "marine snows" of JERO
Is composer bringing about many blockbusters; music producer
Of course Ryudo Uzaki that it is played an active part as artist.

Uzaki is alumnus of Meiji University in Kandasurugadai.
After we graduate, and dozens of years passed, too
Splendor of town of Ochanomizu, Jimbocho
It is said that we came to feel heartily.
It is Uzaki almost great master now in the world of music.
Through music, we want to repay Ochanomizu, Jimbocho's kindness.
In late years such thought seemed to increase.

With music friend sharing the same thought
We held the first Ochanomizu JAZZ festival in this January.
And the second is performed rapidly on this October 26.
(as for the second details → this)
Today, Uzaki with guidance of the second JAZZ festival
We visited the Chiyoda head of a ward for explanation for design for the third.
Uzaki talked as follows.
After "the first JAZZ festival, may we end this at intramural presentation?
Such thought increased. Feeling of thanks for town which stood for many years, and sprouted.
When we want to put it back to town.
Meet everybody of secondhand bookstore street and sports shop street, musical instruments store street,
On 1st or 2nd, can you not fill up town of Ochanomizu in music?
Does atmosphere such as New Orleans not have? We are thinking so."
As for Mayor Ishikawa "book, music, all of sports shake heart is person, and give healing.
Area where fragrance of culture is high in Ochanomizu, Jimbocho in Chiyoda-ku.
We think that it is difficult for schedule very much this year
For next, we said, we want to cooperate as ward.
Well, it is this time of the next year, street corner of Ochanomizu, Jimbocho
What kind of music will be played?
(Staff I.K)

There is bridge such as pedestrian bridge on forever bridge and the approximately middle JR guard side of Izumi Bridge.
Naming mokoryamata "Kanda contact bridge"
See forward; eruha Izumi Bridge (Showa-dori)
We step over the Kanda River and connect 2, Sudacho (the photograph right side) and 1, Sakumacho (the photograph left side).
We see main shrine of willow forest Inari Shrine the right hand ahead.

Shall we go to eat “ tuna? "
We got on such an invitation and went to Suidobashi Station neighborhood, Misakicho.


It is one piece of flyer with discount ticket to be reliable on this street where restaurants form a line.
Though it appears to plain map, we are not found for some reason.
"This flyer, one year do not pass"
Well……Today's fellow was good person who has no sense of direction of wealth.

Shop of tuna was changed to ramen restaurant called "solar tomato noodles" what.
My stomach completely shifts to tomato from tuna!
Tokyo has only 5-6 store yet despite chain store,
Much-talked-about shop which is taken away by much media. 


Bright red ramen which put sources which we made with chicken gallasoup and fully-ripened tomato together.
Such as pasta which noodles kneaded soybean milk into do not narrow.
We seem to work on various ecology and use eco-chopsticks.

Popular cheese ramen and vongole ramen. 

       Tomato cheese           Tomato vongole

It is healthy, and heart somewhat warms for smile of the staff.
When there are many women, there are many omoi breath and novelty being still point or male customers.

Around Misakicho is like ramen battleground somehow or other.

In Digital Hollywood University of Akihabara
We say Takuya Kawai of the university's professor in presidents of himanainu
Very fantastic one and meeting.

Way home to Kandanishikicho with office,
We make a detour a little and take a walk through Sudacho, multi-town, back alley of Tsukasacho.

When we happen to pass by the Matsumotos house of country registration tangible cultural property in multi-town
Paper doll to which children pray for fine weather is 3 ttsu.

The weekend of the summer vacation is another two times, too.
"We want you to clear by all means this weekend because there is homework on last Saturday and Sunday."
We used nadotokatteni thought.

About the Matsumotos house → Please see this.

When we walk alley
The head office of famous company including EARTH CHEMICAL and Wakodo incidentally as outcome do.
Alley of Kanda is interesting.

23 bridges are in Kanda.
13 bridges are built over ten, the Nihonbashi River in the Kanda River.

"Bridge" which we like most is "Shohei Bridge".

Hijiribashi is seen in the far-off upper part upstream.
While realizing height of Kadoyama (Surugadai),
It is seen that orbit of Sobu Line crosses Chuo Line.

Individual, solid bridge pile is in contrast to bridge pile of forever bridge.
It is feature only for Shohei Bridge in Kanda that the sidewalk parts from road.

It is far forever bridge downstream.
It is beautiful scenery of waterside that Kanda should be proud of.
The right beautiful brick is reluctance of leaving of ex-"forever bridge Station".
We closed "Transportation Museum" which there was in the ground and moved.

Once on Kanda River embankment of Shohei Hashigami style company of "small Inari" (Princess Ota Inari)
As we were enshrined, one share of Awaji Hill was called bridge by slope, Shohei Bridge one share.
We read "a mouthful" saying "potato is rough".
"Potato" (as for obtaining) was Inari of smallpox healing about rough weather of smallpox.
The name of bridge became "Shohei Bridge" since Shohei Hill school was established in Yushima later.

After all there are many company, store, people of Bon vacation.
As the past, we have free. "Jinden, Tokyo"
Well, 8/15 is "the anniversary of the end of the war" in full swing today of tray.

It was lively whether the Jimbocho neighborhood was with of the light area partly because Yasukuni Shrine was near, or it was riot police.

By the way, let's go to ranch.
Though Suruga Her Excellency is not crowded, are there many people? The Sudacho area is almost empty from Awajicho, too.

We went to lunch, is "peony" "Yabu soba" not absent together? (rest was all right!)

Uh-oh, shop of China is closed, too. Are "pine" and not lines? Phew!

Lunch did here.
It is set meal of dumpling in Sudacho intersection "tenhishikui*kobo". Brand-new ttone. Brand-new dumpling.
We develop chain by management of China, and a lot of shops appear in Kanda.
As conversation of the staff is Chinese of huge voice, it is BEIJING OLYMPIC feeling while we are in Japan.
Though it is slightly noisy, it is cheap and permits all right because we are good.

In Tokyo that is vacant at the Bon Festival, way is large, too, and there are few cars, too, and the sky is somehow blue forever
We like. ・* * Is considerably hot.
In the first place successive Tokyoite finishes tray by the first Bon service for the deceased in July.
We have thought that person with the country to come back through was enviable.
Vacant Tokyo. Available Kanda. . . We love!
