As the Kamakura bank of a river was landing place that was the nearest to Edo-jo Castle main enclosure, in this neighborhood, it was in large wholesale dealer, and people engaged in landing and transportation were doing crowd every day in those days.

 By the way, one of the rest of people who after all work is liquor. The first Toshimaya ten gate-guard office opens liquor shop here in the Keicho era year. We reduced profit and sold liquor cheaply. Therefore people who worked were delighted and became big sale in a moment. It is said that we were popular so that 20 goes out of sky daruga ten every day. We made tofu with a part of the shop before long and we baked and came to sell it to dengaku in liquor shop. Because dengaku was intended to have a lot of liquor drink, this was big and was cheap.

 By the way, it was fragrant and made sacred white sake delicious highly and put on sale as Girl's Festival use saying that the manufacturing method of sacred white sake was initiated into by ten gate-guard offices, "paper doll" which rose on dream pillow again this time.

School building during training has begun to explore methodology during result, now in order to use in other purposes.

I was from the inside now, and the parents' house has been the very front,
We just participated in various events that used ruins of the inside.
Parallel to this as the use of training junior high school ruins,
"Chiyoda art square design" is proposed from ward,
Well-informed people gathered and explored the concrete measures.
"3331 Arts Chiyoda" began as one of this embodiment this time,
I understand this.

There was receptionist when we went up the front entrance.
A large number of people already make crowd of people and talk.
It seems to be art already somewhat-like.
By the way, is accidental when think that is in receptionists; with art dealer S of friend suddenly.
We have found just right navigator.

If it becomes dynamo for the decline of mall of nationwide center city area,


As I helped with activity of association of slow food, there is similar critical mind.

When even the same product changes cut end by the way of display and expression,
It becomes a lot fresh.

The third "Toys Paradise via Kaekko from VPC" of Hiroshi Fuji.

With Fuji, we held during old training
There is acquaintance by event called "kaekko".

Interchange with hometown wants you to develop by all means, too.
