When it walks town of Kanda, it is Inari to stand out well.
Crowd zone with Inari that Kanda is more what than in 30 big things and small things alignment.
There is Shinto shrine with the history that is not known still more that does not appear in guidebook when back alley receives for one step either a lot.

At first it is this.

It is Matsuo Shrine of 2, Kandatacho.
It was this Shinto shrine, Shinto shrine where after checking, enshrined deity worshiped Inari God in "ukakoregokommei", and it seemed to be in additional post Corporation of Kanda Shinto shrine for the Meiji period.
Fox appears and disappears in relief here and there.
We like this atmosphere enshrined quietly by one of the depths of dark T-shaped road personally.

Next is this.

It is 18 Inari Shrine of 2, Kandatacho.
The foundation seemed to be called new silver Inari Shrine before the war in the early period of Edo era.
According to authenticating certificate, there is while fire prevention theft benevolence of the gods that is is high in this Shinto shrine, and the whole Tokyo becomes sea of flames at the time of Tokyo blitzkrieg when only Kandatacho avoided disappearance.
In addition, we seemed to be rebuilt by cooperation of local volunteer after the war as concrete main shrine by wooden your company.
It is Shinto shrine which loves, and is loved definitely by people of multi-town.

The last is this.

It is 2, Kandatsukasamachi truth virtue Inari Shrine.
This place faces very small alley.
Staple grains are fertile and are worshiped as akuekichimmamori, God of business prosperity, local guardian deity.

Originally Inari was God of agriculture according to the name of "Inari".
However, the Middle Ages later, we came to be worshiped as industry, all-around God including agriculture as it became commercial society.
It is not difficult for Inari Shinto shrine to have been believed in in town of Kanda where merchant supporting the Edo Shogunate in that, a lot of craftsmen gathered in imagination.
Site was cleaned neatly, and even small Inari whom I saw in town of Kanda was managed well.
In addition, local event is carried out led by these Inari and functions as the center of local community.
We feel that it is relation that I do not cut even if town of Kanda and Inari cut to know from these things.

※This is blog of this association student internship having you carry out tourist attractions investigation.

We got off train in Akihabara and, across the Kanda River, walked the neighborhood of Kandaiwamotocho.

In here Iwamotocho, a lot of office building and stores are standing in a row now, but we hang from Edo in the Meiji era and prosper in clothing industry and change to kimono and made-to-order clothes after World War I, and even the country is "the ready-made clothes birthplace" which came to produce ready-made clothes at considerably early stage.

There is small child play garden when we cross pedestrian bridge of the Izumi Bridge south, and there is explanation board of "the ready-made clothes birthplace" there.

Furthermore, we discover explanation board of glass open space of Iwamotocho horse beside intersection when we advance to the south!

It seemed to be base that was important as drinking fountain of horse which carried baggage from the Edo era and rest station of person here.
There are not resources at the time, but we have this corner even now and are doing.

We will walk more and more.
When we advance to the Kodemmacho area and enter small alley,

Shinto shrine where seems to have history what in just gap of building!
Place where it is said to that originally ladle had pond called pond in this neighborhood.
That originally pond was big pond called cherry tree ka pond, this ladle came to be called ladle ka pond because daughter called "ladle" threw the body to the pond.
It is somewhat slightly sad story.
Ladle ka pond is already filled up in old days, and correct place does not seem to be sure.
This "ladle Inari great gracious god" is enshrined in the ruins.

It is Kandaiwamotocho visited this time, but understands well that it is town with the history when we walk.
It is pleasant to look for various history resources.

Gusset which has not gone down though we went by train well.
The looks of the sky are quite dark when we arrive at that, station. Is it all right?
It is Kanda Station west exit mall we pass through Kanda Station west exit wicket, and at first to have got into eyes.
Language school seems to be near, too.

Office worker seems to come to eat rice in noon.
Anyway, there are many ramen shops. Celebrity shop opens a store, too.
As well as ramen shop, we had an impression that restaurant was really many areas.

When go ahead through such a mall for a while, scene only in this area.

Language school is nearby, or there are very many signboards of foreign language.

It was written down once that it was place that was for air raid.
The scratch was left in bridge.

All the traces of such a hole seem to be things with bullet.
Innumerable traces are left in the whole bridge.
There do not seem to be many people to see this situation and passes by everybody now.

We bumped into place that we were made to think about in various ways in Otemachi neighborhood.

It turned out that it was greatly different in characteristic every area even if we said Kanda to a mouthful.
