Baker of Kanda who opened invited opening anniversary last year under Myojin. 
It is "bread selling handmade bread under Myojin made of Mitsui".

There is laundryman on the right side when we go down "steeper slope of the two" in cliff of the Kanda Myojin precincts east side.
When we turn right at the corner and advance a little, there is bakery which is pretty "0 signboards in character of odd number".
A feeling of beautiful cleanliness is felt in door and wall and grain of wood.
Pretty wooden bench is put in front of shop,
There seems to be person eating bread which we just bought here!


Way of prosperity that there is big advantageous value sale of the first anniversary, and visitor is always in shop!
The woman staff is doing correspondence of customer with smile skillfully.

Two ways where bright window is cut can eat bread which they bought on the spot
As ten seats of eat-in seats are made, it is unbearable for bread enthusiast to want to eat immediately!


It becomes kitchen of bread which the depths of shop produce, and completion length is set by shop.
It seems to be delicious! It seems to be delicious! It seems to be delicious!


Mitsui of manager accepted shooting with smile.
(we always make bread with the back hard)
We feel like being had a look such as bread somehow if we say so nn ...!


It is whole view of building of shop which is impressive coloring.
We explained directions from Myojin steeper slope of the two in the beginning
(gentler slope) We appear in the front of this "bread made of Mitsui" when we walk from this for way.
Or there are directions from immediate Myojin medium-grade articles from Myojinshita intersection.

There is "cafe Erika" at Jimbocho 1.
There is it in corner lot in front of "hotel Hotel Villa Fontaine Jinbocho" which turned to bystreet from Shiroyama Street.

"Erika" of Nishikanda closes shop if we say so, and will 3-4 years pass? . . Jimbocho store is in good health!

This appearance of Erika being wonderful.
As we put shop on corner lot, "square with each corner cut off" part is the entrance (doorway).
When there were many wooden houses before age, in all houses and stores, this square with each corner cut off was the entrance!
"Square with each corner cut off" be established in Building Standard Act for security of traffic of person and car
Building of corner lot had to cut building diagonally in this way.

When it goes down a little and looks, elegant stubborn feeling to hide behind inside is seen!
Brick-colored building of the next-door houses on both sides leads to L shape; then is there?
Even if these scenes walk, we do not notice.
This ground is feeling when "we do not hand over!".

Is it more wonderful ... without vending machine of cigarette of the front?
(because shikashimaa Erika is place of recreation and relaxation for smoker, there is no help for it)


Classic coffee mill (we saw bean) that it is classic when we enter shop
We jump into eyes. Luster to glisten with the reddish yellow being wonderful.


Floor and clean feeling of table that the shop was polished up to a bright shine cleanly are comfortable.
Chair of the heart-shaped back of seat at a table is pretty!
Capa can enter to counter seat, and is it around 40 seats?

Storekeeper makes in counter, and wife progresses with smile
There is good fragrance in it, and calm time can have the coffee too much, too.
(we say, but person whom we are hard for to deal with as cigarette is OK cafe takes when we are available)


Storekeeper will send out with smile by back accounts (surely probably)

Something is insufficient.
We had hot coffee of blend, but forgot to take.
I'm sorry.
It was cafe "Erika" of nostalgic calm reddish yellow image of the Showa era.

@Scenery series of leader this time again "over-road bridge" (guard).
How about the last "pine house town over-road bridge?"
It was the Kanda River, Shohei Bridge and the splendid scenery beauty!

Scene to be like some diorama, and to like is this.
There are few green iron bridges of "pine house town over-road bridge" which we introduced in the last time, but sees.
It is "Kanda River bridge" we greatly open leg on the left side, and to step over gashi and the Kanda River.
On this side where vehicle of Chuo Line toward Ochanomizu Station is seen
You can see home remains of an ancient structure of old forever bridge Station, do you know?
Atmosphere that Shohei Bridge that brick-colored humanity, road built over the Kanda River is separate is good for.
Hijiribashi is seen in high place of the depths for an instant, too.

When go to the right side, Akihabara direction by Kanda River bridge, Sobu Line of pine house town over-road bridge; lower photograph.
We see over-road bridge stepping over Chuo-dori.
It is "going out way over-road bridge" which this introduces this time.


It is ordinary over-road bridge stepping over Chuo-dori in front of Akihabara Station.
In fact, good name that the name of over-road bridge swells or harks back to the Edo era!
"Going out way over-road bridge"
Way where Tokugawa family to inherit the shogunate passes away for visit to a grave in east Enryakuji Temple "Kanei-ji Temple" of Ueno in the Edo era
Say avenue of honor or going out way, and route hatoiuto
Edo-jo Castle - Kanda Bridge gate of a palace - Ogawamachi intersection side - sprain gate of a palace ... (the area of photograph) - Kanei-ji Temple.

By when over-road bridge was built in 1932, having been named "going out way over-road bridge"
In this ground, we can feel reluctance of leaving of the history and culture of the Edo era.

As state of vehicle-free promenade which revived appears in this photograph
We understand that place where I cut forward average says intersection of Suehirocho.
As bottom of this over-road bridge becomes pedestrian crossing of Chuo-dori
We do duty of umbrella to finish without getting wet and are enough and do on what a rainy day!

Scene which we draw glance and greatly looked at is lower photograph.


It is home trace that the left brown part sticks out with trace of old forever bridge Station at the left edge.
Excellent forever bridge that width has a bigger than length. Chuo-dori which bends.

We see the total picture of Sobu Line.
In pine house town over-road bridge and going out way over-road bridge vehicle of the top and tail of Sobu Line
We see, and is it emashitakkene? (but we feel like having shown unconfirmed ...)


Well, evidence of name is this!
Information of the painting is written finely and seems to be heartwarming for some reason.

Still, "going out way over-road bridge" is the good name.
It was good and named. . . Really!

(no, of course this is article of splendid scenery of Kanda)

There is now between Akihabara Station and Ochanomizu Station that Sobu Line of JR East runs.
We are proud of symbolic scale and beauty in over-road bridge of Japanese railroad.

Because the name of town of 2, Sotokanda side was "pine house town"
This name is included.

Part of the bottom comprised of straight line of the steel frame painted in deep green.
It is powerful masculine image. Full length of bridge is approximately 72 meters.
And height that steel frame is made on the 3-story building is great.

Impression of whole view which we looked at from the side is splendid scenery having both strength and beauty
We adapt ourselves to road and cityscape of the circumference and can feel even elegance.
Way where bridge steps over Shohei Street, and the front leaves for Chuo-dori. It is Akihabara.

 Beauty that wears well no matter how much we look at beauty of arched bridge without supporting beam.

It is scenery that tasting of "pine house town over-road bridge" which we looked at is more splendid to filter Shohei Bridge.
We appear in the population canal "Kanda River" which continues watching development of Edo, Tokyo
Atmosphere to have of "Shohei Bridge" that was ever called "small bridge" (chopsticks that potato is rough)
We show "pine house town over-road bridge" more attractively.

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

At 3, Kandajinboucho since its formation 128 years
What continued business in this ray land as store specializing in footwear
It is "Yamato shop footwear shop"!

To men and women young recently
People who put on yukata when we went for summer fireworks and Bon festival dance increased.
How about sometimes choosing footwear in such a historical specialty store?

※Only as for two houses, store where is specialized in footwear is left in Kanda.

Shop is Jimbocho 3. It is at corner of Senshu Univ. intersection.
It is position sandwiched between "Doutor" and "tenya".

In bright shop, it is unbearable toward this kind of hobby
Cute Japanese-style miscellaneous goods and accessory gatakkusan.

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".

Of Mitsuko Ogura
Profile and work or event schedule refer to this ↓↓↓

We introduced "Yamato shop footwear shop" proud of founding 128 years.
