The name: machiblog3 Making day: 2008/07/07 13:48
It is town blog of Chiyoda-ku

Contributor: machiblog3 contribution day: 2009/12/29 1:14

We come to Akihabara.

It is stored electric wave hall, radio center radio by the left.
Three buildings form a line in underpass,
All these buildings were built at the postwar same time.

It is opportunity that GHQ gave unpremised businessperson withdrawal law in 1949
Unpremised businessperson which unfolded in Ogawamachi from Sudacho
In the next year, stalls gathered in underpass of Akihabara, and electronic parts street was completed.
Is here, so to speak, sacred place of Akihabara electronics quarter origin? There is in this.

Well, there is Akiba Shrine whom the place name of Akihabara was derived from on the second floor of radio center of underpass.

It was in half-landing to the second floor. We met. We met. There was.
There is with Fushimi Shrine if we think of this.
It was the head temple of a Buddhist sect of Inari, branch shrine of Inari, Fushimi, Kyoto.

When we took heart and went on the second floor tap-tap, it was certainly enshrined Akiba Kanja this time.
It is Akiba Kanja whom misunderstanding, scatter-brain are piled up, and the place name of Akihabara was derived from.
Motomiya is enshrined to Enshu Hamamatsu. Bill of looking out for fire is famous for originator of looking out for fire.
Akiba Shrine whom the place name was derived from moves to Taito-ku in the old days from Akihabara and is enshrined,
In fact, there is household Shinto altar of Akiba in stationmaster to JR Akihabara Station room.

Well, people are such feelings.
It is right Akihabara, sacred place of electricity, electronic parts.
However, rental box for individuals makes a foray, too.

Where will Akiba enthusiasts go for New Year's visit to a Shinto shrine?

Oh, I am here.
We never miss New Year's visit to a Shinto shrine to Kanda Myojin of Ujigami.
Lull before a storm of New Year holidays and Myojin of the shallows of age that we felt were deserted.
Shinto priests sweated in work figure in a kimono and ran around.
Tent for New Year holidays is pitched in in front of shrine office.

Shinto gate door shut at 0:00 a.m. on the last day of the year is opened, and the New Year starts.
In splendid refreshing atmosphere, it becomes entrance while we hear lumber-carriers' work song of head fireman people.
Where do you go to for New Year's visit to a Shinto shrine?

Both I, birth and the breeding are Jinden, Chiyoda-ku.
Omiyamairi is Kanda Myojin of Ujigami.
Visit to a grave is Kanei-ji Temple of family temple.
But we celebrate Christmas.

Celebrate; even if untied, generally drank, and made noise, and was Don Chan, Don Chan,
Eve of this year is slightly different.
We get invitation for acquaintance from the one that teacher of Russian lecture of NHK did in old days,
We would participate in worship of Nicolai temple which was symbol of Russian Orthodox Church of Tokyo.
Therefore we spent 50 years in Kanda,
We set foot in Nicolai temple of Ochanomizu for the first time.

Thursday, December 24 6:30 p.m. Surugadai Nicolai temple

In fact, 24th was day of joint night watch of Kanda Station east district 5 town assembly.
The town assembly in front of Kanda Station is called "hinoyo - gin" and works as night watch every year,
Leave only this year with cho, and to Ochanomizu. But we helped only with the construction.

Go down slope from St. Hashiguchi of Ochanomizu Station, and to entrance of Nicolai temple.

Nicolai temple, it is said formally with "Japanese Greek Orthodox Church religious community Tokyo revival sanctuary".
The name of Nicolai temple brought teaching of the Greek Orthodox Church in Japan
It seems to be thing associated with St. Nicolai who is Russian ascetic practices Catholic priest (archbishop).

Illuminations that seem to be Christmas in gate of entrance.
"Merry Christmas" will be probably written in Russian.

Candle which volunteer people use for worship in open space of St. Domae,

We sold handmade cookies.

When it was past half past 6, bell of Nicolai temple begins to sound all at once.
Then row of bishops who will control worship from building of opposite side of temple of Confucius appears,
We disappeared in temple of Confucius while worshiper watched.

After making sure of what the bishops entered,
We general worshipers follow St. Douchi, too.

When worshiper who waited in open space of St. Domae achieves entrance, it is start of worship.
After from here, we are prohibited from shooting.


Worship more than two hours was ceremonies with solemn nanakanimo warmth.
Chorus of hymn sung in response to voice and that of bishop sounding through St. Douchi,
We make a clear distinction from public Christmas party.
I mean this is true Christmas.

By the way, we transcribe "Christ" into "Harris toss" in the Greek Orthodox Church.
But was it audible with "Christ's" in ear? According to former Russian teacher,
Having guessed character of "ha" right when we transcribed pronunciation of "CH" in Japanese
Probably it seems to be nobility rank (former samurais) of Meiji.

The Japanese Greek Orthodox Church which spread out in the starting point in Hakodate seemed to spread out from people who relatively had high digit.
Is person of everybody road accompanied while hearing such a story after worship was over?

We are Christmas dinners private at home of Russian teacher.
While looking at Tokyo Tower colored by illumination on Christmas,
We stuffed our mouth with pirozhki and borscht.

We went to "the spot of rumor" that we happened to hear a little.

Way which goes out the west exit of JR Kanda Station, and follows Yasukuni Dori is called "multi-town main street".
But, I call "multi-town street" as it is not large gatsukuhodotaisona street.
End of this way sees certain riso ○ bank in Yasukuni Dori.

Some right hand upper part is doing mosamosa. What's that? We will approach nearer.

It is the jungle from window.
Hey, there be thing whether it is covered with trees out of room. It is great, the jungle.
If there is nest of hawk or black kite here, we nurse delusions that it is great.

We arrived right under the spot.
Trees protrude from the sixth-floor window shaggily.
It is emotion da for indoor tree planting! (we do not seem to be able to live!)

It is on-site up.
Is this art or art? (jiyan)
Saw one of nn - interesting potato, but ...
I who take top stupid ken te crackle photograph am totally lurker.
Eyes of passerby of the circumference are cold. . . But, we looked up together unintentionally, and there were many people in "o!", too.

Well, we are occupied by floor whole plant, and that indoor tree planting says is case.
We thought that it was 100 Kanda funny views.
We see tree which goes in the sky, and grows when we look at the fourth piece image.
It is naaa ~, though we saw like floor on the sixth floor, in fact, is it the roof?
Then it is "roof tree planting".

But it was scenery that was interesting in downtown of today's Kanda.
If look up, mojamojaaa!
