It is approximately five minutes on foot from the Kanda Station east exit facing Chuo-dori
Solid stone Yamanashi Chuo Bank is at 1, Kajicho.
We say building of 1929 after the Great Kanto Earthquake.

Hut is turned off in corner of Yamanashi Chuo Bank in the end of the year, and decoration of New Year holidays is sold every year.
Shop of simple temporary playhouse of decoration is scene seen well in many places of downtown area Kanda for New Year holidays.

The eaves which crossed bamboo in Chuo-dori stick out, and pretty New Year's festive bamboo twig hung with cakes and talismans decoration is compared with naked bulb there.

The whole of hut cliff comes to look such.
Kagamimochi is put and sells large and small decorated sacred straw festoons.
Uncle who wore short coat in the depths of hut makes from handicraft hard.

It is head fireman descending from town fireman from the Edo era.
We write as "head fireman" and seem to read with "header".
Person not to know when it is "head" seems to read through with "head".
Head of so-called black kite is doing business of decoration in downtown area of Edo for these New Year holidays from old days.


This head fireman is Edo firefighting memory society
It is Takahashi, also known as one ward of first "Class yo" vice-foreman of a gang popular name "vehicle town
In experts made with "sacred sake place, Kariya" made from festivals
In master craftsmen of job, the skill of black kite, title of Meister is given by Tokyo.

As materials make a sound for transportation and production in straw, leaf, paper, string, seaweed with a rustling sound
"gasa selling" means that we sell article in this way in temporary playhouse for New Year holidays.

As Asakusa Teraura or Yagenbori God of Fire have a big scale, it is said to be "year-end fairs".

Great deal of effort is "decorating with sacred straw festoons" that puts, and was made up.

It is said that decoration should decorate by 28th for New Year holidays such as kadomatsu and decorated sacred straw festoon, kagamimochi.
This is because 29th is kept off with one which 9 turns on in pain on 29th from old days.
We will decorate on Sunday on 28th tomorrow.

Age really drew near, too.
There are only several days left in 2008, 2008.
Have new age in good health not to catch a cold.

Then age good ~♪

J tower in right in the middle of Jimbocho 1.
It is symbol of Jimbocho redevelopment,
We hold salon concert on the first floor of building and,
We seem to give people working in office ease.


Piano right here be called "harpsichord",
It seems to be central musical instrument of baroque music in Europe.

Piano usually beats keyboard and makes sound,
When this harpsichord resists thin string by nail, I seem to hear a very elegant sound.
We must go for salon concert by all means!


In J tower
Present is full under the big Christmas tree!


Under the outside illuminations, we sit on bench
We will yearn for all anyone.

Of appearance that it is not revealed whether there is not it whether you do at a glance it
"Monjayaki horsetail", oh, sorry!


When open door of one ken of frontage; six seats at a table with iron plate of four people hook
The unexpectedly large shop is mummun with heat.


It is mother of the only female that ttemonjao bakes each table in time.
Wonderful thing makes rice cracker.


We asked nasty person. Is it Asakusa style? Is it Tsukishima style?
"Mine is Jimbocho style"
We make a round trip to the kitchen for some reason if we ride ingredients which bowl produced on the iron plate.
And we put three cups of bonito powder, green string lettuce three cups in the wheat flour left to bowl,
We put source otabburi. Okay, this is Jimbocho style.


buwa and the steam break out when we pour into iron plate at a stretch.

"Lucky sign" is happy sign.
We say good omen.

Well, story of "bridge" and "temple" built over Kanda.

It is station name of Chuo Line, and town, Kichijoji where are popular among youths are in Musashino-shi.
In the old days, there was temple named Kichijoji (kisshoji) around current metropolitan industrial arts High School (the Suidobashi station square).
We are burnt in big fire (1657) of the Meiryaku era, and temple moves to current Komagome, Bunkyo-ku.


The main gate of a Buddhist temple is precious cultural assets left miraculously from the Edo era.
There are ascetic practices, campus of priest named plum footpace forest, and it is said that priests gathered from the whole country.
Approach to a shrine which follows from the main gate of a Buddhist temple the main hall of a Buddhist temple.
In space surrounded in quietness as we cannot believe in Tokyo either, autumn colored leaves are beautiful, too.

Well, merchants who did business at door front in the lucky sign seemed to be made to move to Tama.
There would be some kind of reasons why we were moved to Tama not the Edo city.
It is current "Kichijoji" that the town developed.


When there was Kichijoji before big fire of the Meiryaku era, "Kichijoji bridge" crossed the Kanda River.
It is former bridge name of current "Suidobashi".

The name of bridge changed taking the opportunity of what Kichijoji transferred to Komagome in "Suidobashi".
There is monument of "Kanda River water supply conduit trace" in front of some down stream of bridge, industrial arts High School.
Briefly, water pipe of water supply was built over this ground and supplied water supply to the Edo city.
Water source Inokashira Pond (present Inokashirakoen).
The name acquired for conduit of the waterworks is "Suidobashi".
"Suidobashi" spreads out after this to date.

Edoite is shi uttenoha, this water supply by first bath of water supply.

However, bridge name "Kichijoji bridge before Suidobashi is the lucky wonderful name, too".

It is "Kichijoji" and "Kichijoji bridge" which there is not in Kanda now
To age attacking, we want world, Japan, Tokyo, Chiyoda-ku, Kanda to bring many "lucky signs".

Winter promenade is Kanda hardware street on Sunday.

This time when "ginkgo rows of trees" from the Kanda Station south exit to Showa-dori yellow.
Tree of ginkgo having leaf which was still deep-blue until three or four days ago.
Is just what traffic of car of the downtown area is intense high in temperature under the influence of exhaust gas and air-conditioner?
We are deep-blue forever and do not readily go to colored leaves.


Well, we are hit by intense rain today (12/5fri), and even ... is not so cold.
↓For such a feeling, ginkgo falls into road, the sidewalk here and there, too.

↓Feeling that ginkgo row of trees does not come. It seems to be quite good. . .
 The coming and going of car is intense to take a walk on weekdays and spoils the fun. We do not have the time.

It is good on Sunday. Because there is neither person nor car. . . This street ...♪
Atmosphere unique on Sunday of Kanda.
We expose the body to cold atmosphere, and let's take a walk crisply.

(as for this photograph in colored leaves, the front of last year Showa-dori)
