It has been a long time no see. It is kon* of dyer.
Concerning work, we do not have time to take a walk through Kanda and Chiyoda-ku neighborhood for approximately this half a year,
It is blog up after a long absence.

As there was time after a long absence late last week, of meeting and Surugadai with rice cake of Kanda
We did Nicolai temple aimlessly.

When it is the end of the year in each town assembly around Kanda, a lot of meetings with rice cake are opened.
In "such urban truth" Person thought to be, thinks that it is a lot, too,
Quite prosperous.

Jointly with two orders eyes, we held on December 4. (but I was absence)
Rice cake making meeting of east Matsushita town assembly where there was old 1,000 cherry tree elementary school on Saturday on 18th.

In the old 1,000 cherry tree elementary school, school building is demolished now,
Originally venerable place where there was Xuanwu hall of Shusaku Chiba.

When I arrived, the rice cake making was over.
We arrived with this mortar.

We picked quarrel promptly, and made rice cake became rice cake and was behaved.

And youth group of Kanda where there is good at festival.
Fish, simmered giblets of dried fish which we baked with takoyaki and clay charcoal stove as well as rice cake,
And of course liquor was served abundantly, too.

We went to the Surugadai area for walk aimlessly.

Book of nihasukari dusk was about to fall at about 4:00.

There is Nicolai temple when we go down intersection of Hijiribashi to the Ogawamachi area.
We have Christmas of last year cause from the person concerned of the Greek Orthodox Church,
Participated in worship of birthday celebration for a saint, but Christmas season of this year.

To attend worship especially even if it is not original flock,

In addition, there is Russian restaurant called "monkey fan" on Surugadai side across Yasukuni Dori, will existence of Nicolai temple be related to there being many Russian restaurants for some reason in Jimbocho neighborhood?

In the Great Kanto Earthquake generated on September 1, 1923 let alone town of Kanda
Tokyo downtown area suffered terrible damage called full-scale destruction.

The cause, city planning of the name of earthquake disaster revival were reconsidered.
Building named one-panel structure was built a lot in process of this revival, too.
Frontage flattens and is building where so-called signboard stands.
It is built with concrete, and big store where decoration is vivid is founded a lot
A lot of buildings of copper sheet tension such as almost lower photograph were made.

But, as for the Early Showa Period Billboard Architecture of the copper sheet tension, most are destroyed by fire at the time of the Great War.
Most of left one-panel structure are made after the earthquake disaster now
Fortunately, we can see a lot with rare thing which was not burnt by air raid in Kanda.

Copper sheet tension one-panel structure of this photograph is two tenement houses at 1, Sudacho.
They go, and some right building will be strange basically though it should be the same structure.
By little seems to adjust the outside and the inside with doomo handicraft.
Neighboring person seems to witness such a state, too, and appearance seems to change a little.

Shutter hangar is remade in new copper sheet and is shiny.
In addition, decoration such as the upper Chinese gable is outstanding wonderfully.
Seemed to stick at a glance new copper sheet on the second-floor window, but fake kamo.
New decoration was stuck on top of the front.

As you see, in corner of top roof, is like tower for Taho-nyorai such as knob of a bridge post
Mysterious decoration is attached.

Who will live here?
Will store of nanigashika open newly?

Will it be sometimes watchman in future? We go to this and want to ascertain real identity.

Partly because a lot of Chinese foreign students including the Taisho era lodged once around Kanda
Demand for Chinese food increased, and, in Jimbocho, one of Chinatown seemed to be buttock.
