There are a lot of ramen shops, too.

Deep Jimbocho!
When alley one of Yasukuni Dori enters, we can see various faces,

Where is Ochanomizu?
Every inch?
Because there is "Ochanomizu Station" of JR on top of Surugadai, is it there and thereabouts?
There is neither lot number nor the place name nor name of a street.
What there is only as for the names such as station, bridge, slope, building or cramming school.
It is the really mysterious place name.

Monument derived from the "Ochanomizu" place name is built next to police box of the Ochanomizu bridge side.
General at the time of shuchu or house light comes to this ground for falconry, and say with "tea tsu"
After serving "tea" at spring which is the precincts of neighboring Takabayashi temple, say "umaii ...!".
"Then in Ochanomizu!" ・* * The place name named "Ochanomizu" was born in this.

High Hayashiji is made to move for city maintenance of Edo after big fire (1657) of the Meiryaku era and acts foolishly.
High Hayashiji exists in Mukougaoka, Bunkyo-ku.

Proper;, in the precincts with grave of Koan Ogata of the foundation, a lot of green can see old stone pagoda since Edo much carefully, too.

Still, place name "Ochanomizu."
When the name of temple becomes the place name, is seen a lot, but ...
For example, ... ... Sengakuji, Kokubunji, Koenji, Kichijoji, Yutenji.

Around the top of Surugadai is ... by any chance

It might be just becoming the place name called "high Hayashiji".

Customer of pleasure being enough looking for rare thing from wagon of secondhand book,
