Of "Jimbocho dishonest measures walk" of foregoing paragraph have a series of.

We enter Sanseido shop at Sanseido Jimbocho Exit (back entrance) and open to 1F - 6F
We take a walk through the world of new book book, and it is good to measure improvement of intellect.

Furthermore, as for the person who wants to continue dishonest measures walk, there is such a course, too.
"Jimbocho dishonest measures walk sequel to"

Let's turn right if we face with Sanseido back entrance.
It is male of another new book bibliopolism of lily of the valley street in the view left.
Owl shop of Tokyo temple bookstore gets into eyes.
The front entrance "lily of the valley street."

Suruga Her Excellency intersection is seen in point of "lily of the valley street" when we turn eyes to the left.
Signboard of the left "book" is Tokyo temple bookstore owl shop.
Summer intense heat is severe, and person does not walk very much
Numerousness of shopper of the lunch break and the weekend is overwhelming mall.

Let's turn left at the alley of one point across lily of the valley street.
The neighbor of shop of pink wall of corner is the "hishikui" (
odori) head office.
Showa-like shop where is familiar soup curry and lunch of popular price.
Night is bar.

Luckily? Person never walks.
We describe contrast that summer sunlight divides way of bystreet into two.
On both sides of this way, we are thought to have been house once
Wooden building links the eaves. ・* * But,
It becomes bar and snack and bar.
It is rare bystreet.

On there, the right side "Jimbocho Flowers bloom beautifully and the moon shines bright" of Yoshimoto.
There is movie theater "Jimbocho theater" which Kanda can say alone underground.
From image that building became high in suddenly
It is point that alley seemed to become smaller.

Of the left bookstore equal to exit of dishonest measures walk
We stop foot without feeling have a cute open bookshelf of wall surface to introduce book to.
Main street "goes along Meiji Univ.".
Leave alley; and the left side is Suruga Her Excellency intersection. There is Meiji University over there.

If go ahead through Suruga Her Excellency intersection Yasukuni Dori near at hand to the left; Jimbocho Bookstore street.
It becomes Ogawamachi "sports shop street" if we go ahead through ho to the right.

If we turn at bystreet a little and walk back street if tired from walk of main street
New discovery of the town is ...
It was "Jimbocho dishonest measures walk sequel to".

When go up subway "Jimbocho Station" Exit A7 to ground; Shiroyama Street.
We look back toward the back ... a little under my nose though it is Jimbocho intersection.

Let's go for Jimbocho dishonest measures walk!

Unique atmosphere is in back street put on Yasukuni Dori and lily of the valley street.

"saboru" forms a line on the right side of alley two.
Without being able to finish holding down that we read book which we bought in bookstore street after returning to house
There are many people absorbed in reading in such a cafe.
Lunch of cafe is popular, too.

Cafe to tell sushi bar and jazz earlier of "saboru."
Way is hooked and turns right here.

Western food restaurant and Chinese shops form a line in the next alley peacefully.
There is rare Japanese book bibliopegist now.
The left side is wall surface of the back of building, but is ... slightly earlier
There is cafe "old Seto" where picture of Maako Kido was drawn on to fill the wall surface.

Picture in shop of "old Seto" goes to the exit left side of this way for guidance.
We are hooked and turn to the left, and let's go into the next alley this time.

This alley is right dishonest measures. It seems that way is warped strangely
You say that it is old-fashioned, or do you say to both sides of way that you were left behind in the times?
There are "rad Rio" and "milonga" of mysterious atmosphere.

Building per stab is "the Sanseido Bookstore Jimbocho head office".
Sanseido of feeling that was slightly usually different seeing from this direction.

Dead end per stab of dishonest measures thought "only with back entrance" of Sanseido
We say "Jimbocho entrance" formally. dattesoo is written.
But, in Yasukuni Dori, is entrance of lily of the valley street Jimbocho when we think?

Back street put on Yasukuni Dori and lily of the valley street is vacant than main street
It should be easy to walk. Because car does not go, we are safe.
But because atmosphere of back alley of Kanda remains even if we say anything
It is the best to be able to take a fun walk unsteadily.

It was Jimbocho dishonest measures walk. . . To be continued!
