There is surprisingly around many tickets shop of Kanda Station in particular.

Therefore ticket person of Kandaogawamachi that it is Tokyo to introduce this time, but is old in eminence.
"You Laon Corporation"

Speaking of founding 1933
Tokyo is totally destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 and is only ten years later.
While wooden store and houses form a line on street in those days
nanka is great to have opened rare ticket person for those days!
Popularity of movie as entertainment would be considerably high. (and there is not on TV)

Person who knew where here is immediately thinks that a lot of is not so, but ...
Shops of showy coloration form a line. Really!

Place is store of 1F of big "new Surugadai building" facing Yasukuni Dori under Surugadai.
Shoemaker, public lottery person, stamp person, world mountain link the eaves.
Over Yasukuni Dori, the entrance hall of that Sanseido Bookstore is place to see in front.


It is small when we enter shop at entrance of around one frontage. Considerably small.
However, it is good in this because it is ticket person.
Be to signboard with cinema guide when you say what tickets you sell
It is almost ticket person which is specialized in movie.
Tickets such as play or art museum are put as such, too, but ...
Most of the tickets of movie working in Tokyo seem to be covered!

Storekeeper of almost this smile sits on counter in shop.
You should order "... ..." n piece and desired ticket here.
Then movie ticket is available with advance sale rate.

Attention: We do not sell cash voucher and tickets of means of transportation including train, airplane!


There is visitor one and two by all means in shop in all time
Poster and flyer put on wall in shop
You may walk street and understand that we look at put movie magazine.

Well, it is what there are a lot of movie theaters in Kanda, and was full in old days
There are Jimbocho theater of bystreet and Iwanami hall of Jimbocho intersection according to lily of the valley now.
(but we think that it varies according to the times ...
Orient cinema, Kanda Nikkatsu, Kanda news cinema palace, south light seats in memory)
Therefore most people who purchased ticket go to see movie in other town.


We sometimes watch even favorite movie and would like to relax!

Ticket shop which Kanda native raised in local birthplace that passed since its formation in 80 runs

However, main profession is footwear for Japanese binding.
Clogs and sandals or leather-soled sandals form a line in shop; and ...
Of course the master fixes if we choose favorite sandal thong.
(are There is to boots!)
In old days, town matches quiet and disquiet bystreet in Nihonbashi,
Because there were many shops which handled both footwear on rainy day on fine day there
It is not still strange at all even if boots are put.

This is the master.
Atmosphere of merchant who continued business by a footwear ray successively for several generations is unbearable.

I see, is it with backward Japanese towel of the master or sandal thong of this side?
It is work of Mitsuko Ogura who is famous as printing writer.
I mean the parents' house of Mitsuko Ogura is this "Yamato shop".
