Of unnatural triangular projecting
Ward world of Chiyoda-ku and Bunkyo-ku.

Appearance Kanda (we chewed)

Scenery that we saw against a backdrop of Ochanomizu SORA city.
Street near at hand is Hongo Street. It is also St. Hashiguchi of JR Ochanomizu Station in the front.
According to Chiyoda-ku sign, it is Kanda Myojin on the right. It is on the left with Ogawamachi Station.


Let's go to Kanda Myojin across Hijiribashi of the completion in 1927.
By the way, the name of this Hijiribashi is decided by general open call for participants at the time.
It is bridge connecting Tokyo revival sanctuary (Nicolai temple) and Yushima temple of Confucius.


It shows classic familiar scenery when we look at east direction (the right hand) in Hijiribashi.
It is the Kanda River, Marunouchi Line bridge under eyes Ochanomizu Station on the right.
It is Kanda River bridge, pine house town over-road bridge, Shohei Bridge the front ahead.
Furthermore, cityscape of Akihabara is seen in distant place!

In this St. Hashigami, the right hand is Chiyoda-ku from centerline of the Kanda River.
The left hand of line from here becomes Bunkyo-ku.
Okay, we do not advance! saraba Chiyoda-ku!


Hiroshige Utagawa described in "famous place Edo 100 view" and, in the front right hand lower part, was crowded
We see plaster wall of steps form of Yushima temple of Confucius.


Yushima temple of Confucius "Onari"


Hongo Street, mark of Route 17.
It is distance approximately only 2km from origin of Japan road vote, Nihonbashi.
We see Otorii of Kanda Myojin when we advance to the right across signal.
Address of the present location is 1, Yushima, Bunkyo-ku.


We saw well-established "Amano-ya" where Otorii and amazake, natto of Kanda Myojin were famous.
Way just before sky Noya becomes border of Chiyoda-ku and Bunkyo-ku.
In other words, all way to Kanda Myojin line, the areas become Bunkyo-ku from Ochanomizu Station.


House indication board of "Tomihisa Building" just before road of ward world is as you see.


It is in house indication of telephone pole beside sky Noya with Chiyoda-ku "Sotokanda".


White building becomes Chiyoda-ku with sky Noya of both sides of Akira Kanda Kanagawa Univ. torii.
But it is ...


"Bunkyo-ku" of just what that we look at sign installed in the front sidewalk of the white building
Is it mysterious?
He/she wants you to look at drawing of ward world that is mystery on the next map.


This is modern map.
Red line becomes ward world of Chiyoda-ku and Bunkyo-ku (border).

We think that you see and can know,
That person and miniature shrine pass through Otorii and approach to a shrine and go to Kanda Myojin for worship
It becomes composition that he/she does not go to when we do not go along Bunkyo-ku.
It was the regular route from Ochanomizu Station this time,
On route from the Akihabara Station area, point is almost Bunkyo-ku from intersection under Myojin.
Okay, because all both sides of Yushima slope in front of Akira Kanda Kanagawa Univ. torii are Bunkyo-ku.

When we select ward world of Kanda ward and Hongo ward (border) as (1878) in 1878
When we thought Kanda Myojin which ward you could enter
Though ground of Kanda Myojin is a part of Hongo plateau Yushima stand even if we think how.
Edo total local deity "Kanda Myojin" is ... which cannot but can enter Kanda ward (existing Chiyoda-ku)!
(never Yushima temple of Confucius on the Chiyoda-ku side
You should see map and understand that we say that we do not stick out)

Say this; from Shinobazu Street (person of Kanda says Shohei Street) to the west
Area of triangular projecting that Kanda Myojin is located
It is said that old person said "appearance Kanda".

Ward world of this Chiyoda-ku and Chuo-ku is line not point
Most people become quiet border which does not notice with ward world.

Central ward world was river Chiyoda until 1950.
The name of the population river which water has ever flowed through "ryukankawa."

We traced the population river and walked ward world of Chiyoda-ku and Chuo-ku!

Facing Sotobori Street running parallel to the Nihonbashi River which was moat of former Edo-jo Castle
There is Kamakura-cho children's park that does not put playground equipment at 3, Uchikanda quietly either.
We see that way of three ken of width (a little less than 3m) extends to northeast direction on the other side of shrubbery.

It is trace of "ryukankawa" where this way drew river into artificially from the Nihonbashi River.


It was built over ryukankawa in this park in 1926 after the Great Kanto Earthquake
A part of first Japanese concrete bridge "ryukankyo" is left and is displayed.


We will go ahead through way.
The left side of this way is 3, Uchikanda. The right side is 4, Nihonbashihongokucho, Chuo-ku.
We see overpass of JR Yamanote Line, Keihin-Tohoku Line between Kanda, Tokyo Station forward.


It is public house street "Imagawa alley" under guard that color is dark and leaves atmosphere of Showa for.


Cozy public house links the eaves under the dark guard that is noon.


When we pass through underpass and advance straight
We can confirm ward world with eyes on "Bank of Japan street" extending from the Kanda Station south exit to the Nihonbashi area!
It is to house indication board of the left arrow with 1, Kajicho.
4, Nihonbashimuromachi and house indication board show in right arrow.

Still, that small way of this less than 3m in width was border of Kanda and Nihonbashi; ...
Become ward world of Kanda ward and Nihonbashi ward afterwards, is also ward world of Chiyoda-ku, Chuo-ku now.


Commemorative monument and sign of "Imagawa Bridge trace" are built on this side appearing to Chuo-dori.


We saw old-fashioned building made with brick on the left when we advanced across Chuo-dori.
It is the back of Agency for Cultural Affairs registration tangible cultural property designated "Maruishi building".


"Fukuda Inari Shrine" restored at right side, 4, Nihonbashihoncho is beautiful.
Inari of early Fukuda village local deity still protects carefully in the Edo era and is done.
By the way, "Kandanishifukudacho" still remains on Chiyoda-ku side as name of a street.


There is guardian deity of children bridge park on both sides across Showa-dori.
This name is named by the name of bridge built over ryukankawa.


This guardian deity of children bridge park extends over both wards, too.
We installed commemorative notice board in both wards in 1950 when ryukankawa was filled up.


Furthermore, green was seen at end when we advanced.
It is ryukanjidokoen made by terminal end of ryukankawa.

The left side is 1, Iwamotocho, Chiyoda-ku.
The right side becomes Nihonbashikodenmacho, Chuo-ku. (as for Kodemmacho prison trace in striking distance)


Because this ryukanjidokoen extends over both wards, park notation is both wards respectiveness, too.


Design that river and bridge were imaged on the extension line of ryukankawa in park.
This left side is 1, Higashikanda, Chiyoda-ku.
This right side is 1, Nihonbashibakurocho, Chuo-ku.

We bent in right angle in both directions, and ryukankawa composed Hamacho River of this ground.
The Hamacho river is filled up, too, and there is not now.


"Takemori Inari Shrine" is dedicated on the Chuo-ku side of ryukanjidokoen and is done.

Population canal "ryukankawa" which dug after big fire 1657 of the Meiryaku era, and was broken
We filled up on the way during history and dug up and seemed to be being enough
Is recognized as border of Kanda and Nihonbashi, prevention of spread of fire of fire
It was helpful as means of water traffic, but is filled up at last in 1950,
The river trace has become thin dishonest measures that person did not notice.
However, name of bridge built over ryukankawa,
It is fact to be left as the place name and name of intersection.

"ryukankawa" where even period novel of Edo thing comes up as the stage well comparatively
In addition, we will walk leisurely if there is opportunity.
If everybody is good, do you not walk this thin back street?



Contributor: machiblog3 contribution day: 2014/07/29 22:00

Chiyoda-ku contacts with Bunkyo-ku, Shinjuku-ku, Minato-ku, Chuo-ku, Taito-ku.
If anything, we are surrounded.
We write ward boundary (kuzakai) as "ward world" in the industry of map seem to say (kuzakai).

Ward world of two wards is "line", but it is at "point" when it becomes ward world of three wards.
Secondary to last Chiyoda-ku, Bunkyo-ku, ward world point of Taito-ku

Of Chiyoda-ku, Chuo-ku, Taito-ku
We went ward world for confirmation.

Water that flow of water of the Kanda River sprang out of ikoretoike of ikoretokoen which was water source
We flow out after long long trip to the Sumida River!
Bridge which is built over the most down stream "Yanagibashi."
"Asakusabashi" appears on this side. Both are Taito-ku.

Bridge appearing next is "Court Security Office bridge" of photograph.

Whether there is by the very antique-looking name with Court Security Office bridge from the Edo era omoi breath
It is bridge built newly in Nantes 1875!

As you see we do newly with Asakusabashi in the Edo era, and there is bridge (existing beauty Kurahashi) on map.
Of both bridges it almost turns out that Court Security Office bridge was built over halfway point.

We hear that there was suburban residence of a daimyo of shuihidarieimoni in the north side of bridge as for the origin of the name well
We will not add the name of shogun's retainer of the Edo era to bridge built newly in the Meiji era possibly!
Because pivotal landing ground of transportation by water that is written down on map "says this ground with the Court Security Office bank of a river"
We think that it might be named Court Security Office bridge.


There is Court Security Office bridge in the right-side end of map.
The west (the left) of bridge is Chiyoda-ku. Top right corner is Taito-ku. The lower right becomes division of Chuo-ku.

Point that the center line and Court Security Office bridge of the Kanda River contacted with was three wards of wards world.


Scenery that watched the upper reaches from Court Security Office bridge. Forward bridge beautiful Kurahashi (in the Edo era, do newly bridge).
The north side (the right side) of the Kanda River is 3, Higashikanda.
The left side (the south side) of the Kanda River is 2, Higashikanda.


We see let alone Asakusabashi, Yanagibashi to the Sumida River when we look at lower Kanda River.
Of the Kanda River go; and the right side (the south side) is 2, Nihonbashibakurocho, Chuo-ku.
Of the Kanda River go, and the left side (the north side) becomes 1, Asakusabashi, Taitou-ku.

A lot of boat rental houses of pleasure boat are ryu maritonatteite of ship downstream than Court Security Office bridge
Rake ex-transportation by water city, figure of Edo; think whether there is; is tasteful, and seem to be good.


We discover version derived from name of a street of 3, Higashikanda town assembly next to the Court Security Office bridge!


Address indication board of 2, Nihonbashibakurocho of piece and Chuo-ku is installed, too.
Just what to step over the Kanda River with Court Security Office bridge is "*eimonkyotsu ri".

Point of this three wards of wards world is halfway point of the center line and Court Security Office bridge of the Kanda River.
Last Chiyoda-ku, Bunkyo-ku, ward world point of Taito-ku were only difficult
There is feeling that was able to soften in waterside in this Chiyoda-ku, Chuo-ku, ward world point of Taito-ku!

Of administrative percent of the early period of Meiji era
When ward world of Kanda ward, Nihonbashi ward, Asakusa ward does not confirm once, too; ...
We introduced Chiyoda-ku, Chuo-ku, ward world point of Taito-ku.

Akihabara Chuo-dori
We see "going out way over-road bridge" which our blog introduced before on the left side (guard).
Let's go to Denkigai Exit of JR Akihabara Station seen in the right depths!

Blog article (20120719) of going out way over-road bridge is this↓

Akihabara Station building "atre" was seen on the left side.

Ratio and line of flow of person of walk in hall were felt smoothly!

3.4 floor is bookstore.
It goes through other floor until now, and popular shop is full.


Nantes "Ginza lion" entered underground and was tired from shopping
We quench throat and come to be able to meet stomach.


Beside escalator carefully the first-floor as for the CD of Mizuho Bank little in Akihabara!


Furthermore, branch of convenience store "Sunkus" was rare scene in hall, too.
In addition, there was nursing room of baby, and consideration that was kind to mom was done.
