There is nostalgic nana small building just before Kanda girl school when we go ahead through brocade bloom street from Suruga Her Excellency.
This building is used now as "Kanda Sarugakucho town assembly crew room"
Is it originally respected police box built in about 1930 (Showa 5)? Is it police box? It was building of this.
Think that was appointed in 80 old by scenery article of Chiyoda-ku, but ...

Upper photograph is shooting of about September, 2006.
Double door wooden in stone building. And it is sash considered to be iron and a lot of wonders.

Photograph which we took today in 2010/02/25thu is this.

Pink flower blooms beside some building; then is there?
Small potted plants were displayed four years ago
We did not know that such a tree was planted before bulletin board until today.
At first will we see near?

That reminds me Japanese towel of blindfold of door turns into design of fireman's standard in vivid yellowish brown, too.
It is fireman's standard of Class four wards of fifth to make kokoirao post.

Uh-oh? ?
Is this pink pretty flower not cherry blossom without with peach with plum either?
It is good about I pride jaaarimasenga plant in detail.
Early blooming considerable this flower as for the cherry tree.
Is thing Kawatsu cherry tree in this?
Make what, and somebody of this town takes care of pretty flower which we found accidentally today.
We stop by near a little more, and will we see?

Oh, it is good ...
Petal of beautiful color is pretty and attaches Aya to town.
We will stop by more!

It is this ↓ receipt.
Well, it is tree of tree of book itearukatchuto surprise peach Japanese pepper.

Just 2 yen
50 Mori soba charges
January 6, 1911 Sarashina

Well, Iwasaki of expectation is younger brother of Yataro Iwasaki of deuteragonist of NHK TV saga now
As iwasakiiyoyokorejoshi, ... of Mitsubishi dies in 1908, is the son small finally Futoshi? Well
Mansion of Surugadai is house of big roof like the inside of photograph of the top.
Modern 2 stories with the right terrace is the Mitsubishi head office.
By the way, it is "Princess Ota Inari Shrine former precinct of a Shinto shrine", and left upper letter hits sleeve of current Hijiribashi.

This is modern map.
We say that position of Nishiki-machi "Sarashina" does not change after founding.
There is the distance to mansion of Surugadai plenty, and the most are slopes.
When home delivery of cooked foods of 50 Mori soba is great big job, it will be thing.
Would you carry by motorcycle or car?

Oh, we just noticed
In 1911, there was neither Hongo Street who fell out nor Hijiribashi from Ogawamachi intersection to Hijiribashi.
This home delivery of cooked foods expectation line was howler.

Because forever bridge Station starts a business in 1912, the following day
Stone "forever bridge" called Megane-bashi Bridge (yorozuyohashi) was removed at this time, too.
Scenery of embankment of Ochanomizu will be very strange thing, too.

By the way, Hongo Street being made, and Hijiribashi having been built over the Kanda River
It becomes (1927) in 1927 after the Great Kanto Earthquake (1923 1923).

It is store of Kandanishikicho "Sarashina".

We are faced with "50 ways" of the one of whole view Yasukuni Dori south side of Sarashina.

It is comment of Ichiro Horii of storekeeper as follows for the present age "Kandanishikicho Sarashina" fourth generation.
Name "Sarashina" of our store
We have "watches of the night" of Shinshu Sarashina county of hometown and character of "course" of feudal lord Hoshina
Raise noren of "Sarashina"; and to Edo Azabu Nagasaka
It is said that it is 1789 (1789) that we began noodle shop.

Hoshina in spite of being different brothers of Prince General Sandai Iemitsu Tokugawa,
Change the learning, and we are given an important post by the Shogunate,
Our store gave to family to inherit the shogunate, the imperial family soba by the relationship, too.

By the late Tokugawa period, progeny Katamori Matsudaira of the Hoshinas made Shinsengumi and fought in Aizu Byakkotai till the last.
When the Yataro Iwasakis and the Hoshinas conclude marital status after the Meiji Restoration,
Story that took soba of home delivery of cooked foods 50 portions from our store reaches the Iwasakis whom there was in Ochanomizu Surugadai.
Ally and enemy of the Meiji Restoration has marital status more than the times,
Would you eat soba by saying that we told long and frugally?

Kandanishikicho "Sarashina" information is this↓
