When, at 2, Kandatacho, it is now
Rare copper boarded place one-panel structure not a little exists.

In the downtown area of Tokyo, total destruction is totally destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923.
What was built a lot early in the Showa era after the earthquake disaster
It was one-panel structure that watched copper sheet as fire prevention measures on the front of building.
Because the monotonous front is like signboard, we are called like that.
It is never meaning called building which attached signboard to the front!

Way which extends straight from the JR Kanda Station west exit to Yasukuni Dori "multi-town street."
2, Kandatacho from Kanda Police street to 2 blocks this side of Yasukuni Dori.
By the way, 1, Kandatacho does not exist and becomes Uchikanda notation.
With rare case which there is only 2 in 2, Tsukasacho similarly.

"Honor shop milk hall" which faces multi-town street
Of two tenement houses go; and half of the left side are milk halls.
Of simple ramen called Chinese noodles until middle part of Showa
It is long-standing local popularity shop that good old taste and atmosphere still remain.

As for the building of copper boarded place, the beginning of new construction shines with beautiful gold
Copper green rust occurs after time and as you see becomes lovat.
It is red color by outbreak of rust whether the side side of this building is iron plate.


At multi-town two orders eyes intersection, we ran greengrocery "salt honor" until just past year
Building of dignified presence is left. As it is corner lot, square with each corner cut off part is the front.
Decoration that there is minute work to wall or wall shelf, and handle was crowded is seen.

In the north side of this intersection until move to Akihabara from the Edo era to 1928
There is vegetable and fruit market of Yoichi Azuma who supported Edo, Meiji, food of the Taisho era
It was place where this intersection was said to be the front gate of bluish-skinned fish market definitely.
"Salt honor" ran the greatest market tea dealer simultaneously in retail and market of fruits and vegetables.


Copper sheet one-panel structure that this ran cleaning business until quite recently.
Originally we hear that it was two tenement houses.


Active tofu maker "Echigo-ya".
Famous shop where coverage of TV enters this shop well.
That reminds me "even bra Tamori" was broadcasted.
In fact, until 1928 half of the north sides of multi-town 2 from the times of vegetable and fruit market
It is old shop of another job in tofu maker and market teahouse in this ground.

As for copper boarded place one-panel structure that was built a lot after the Great Kanto Earthquake
As most disappear by air raid to Tokyo by the U.S. forces of World War II
Being miraculous that that remained in this way avoided air raid.
However, because it is building which says to approach 100 years old
It is not avoided decreasing more and more in future.
It becomes reluctance of leaving of Tokyo downtown area
We introduced copper boarded place one-panel structure of 2, Kandatacho.

One swallow appeared to usual nest in spring this year in April in 2015.
As approximately a one-third nest of last year is left, at first is it break?

Please give me Kanda native swallow growth observation note fun!

One swallow turned up in den used in last year on April 1.
Would swallow that we were hatched in this den and went for trip come back last year?


April 16 oya! All too soon of pair pair.


May 11
We match power hard and make nests.
Of course is it the enlargement to be based on left nest of last year? It becomes work.
But, who is nest not finished one day mercilessly making? It has been disturbed by this
They pro-swallow remakes nest from the beginning silently again.
The natural world is severe.


June 8
Five young birds were hatched from egg. It is whistlingly considerably lively.
Two parent birds repeat work to take home with it looking for bait all day.


June 16
Five fledglings seem to be brought up smoothly.
We can grasp childishness that child child is still doing.


June 20
Is there den in place of what kind of situation?
It is in condition to stick to beam of the first-floor parking lot of building in this way.
Board was completed in base in this front, and, until several years ago, there was excellent nest.
We do not use after the hideout is attacked approximately three years ago by different wild bird and was broken
We make hideout to this beam for these past several years and are doing child care.


June 21
Is it that? There are only ... two in total though it should be five of them.
Body became quite big, too and seemed to mature into boy from child.
Three of them which were not in den did not leave the nest.
In fact, we fly and seem to train neighborhood with pro-swallow.

These two of them of caretaker will not be surely timings to fly away yet!


June 21
When it is the evening, three of them for elder brother who flies, and trained come back to den in this way.
We do not know which is three of them for elder brother at all!
As body is quite already big, hideout is tight and is gyugyu final stage
Pro-swallow rests feather around nest.

Make both; in the first week of for this one week or July as for the child swallows at the time of leaving the nest.
We easily wrote down growth record of swallow of approximately four months.
Opportunity to see figure of quite good swallow is decreasing year by year now in Kanda.
We leave the nest safely and just wish that we come back again in next spring.
