There is such a poster on white wall of ancestor's soul company, but does not meet eyes with the ... plan outside!
As passage is small, please advance carefully.


In the center of dead-end small space

Handrail of old ten thousand world bridge with gitakarashu is placed in form around the monument.

Between "mamorikokuireikorehi" and bridge pile per stab is narrow and is hard to read the name of bridge.
Anyway as it is small space
Considerable wide-angle lens may be necessary to take photograph of the display whole aspect.
However, we cannot say ... luxury because we were not able to see before!


We photographed this photograph before.

Of the precincts have been almost built in the center.

Forever bridge that was kobutetsudoshuchakueki once.
Place where people moving from forever bridge to Tokyo Station gather.
Forever Bridge that was landmark as place where various streetcars gathered even after track spread afterwards.
The present age is Bridge in several years or all generations when there are many people who are new in memory when there was Transportation Museum until before, too.
It is becoming passage point of well-established town, Akihabara ⇔ Ochanomizu, Akihabara ⇔ Kanda now,
Development as landmark is expected again some other time in finished dawn.

Town walk tour to convey charm around Kanda that surrounded forever bridge as well as some exhibitions of underpass was held by JR-related company and participated.

It is the exploration in guides of teacher to Station underpass development place from Kanda Station in former all generations after it is Tohoku University of Art and Design design department of engineering architecture environmental design subject professor, and "classes that we want to take world's most" of Nippon Television received lecture of "Naoyoshi Shimura" (they do irregularity Naoyoshi) who is appeared on in various programs teacher!

State of lecture of teacher.
It is very plain and is hearing easy lecture.

About the history and brick of JR Kanda Station, we learned about Nakasendo highway.

We explained based on photographs including former figure of Kanda Station underpass at the time.

We learned to famous old building ... casual building which we usually overlooked which well usually saw invention of copperplate architecture and building of prevention of fire after earthquake disaster including building which we hardened with the plaster or small invention that wind and rain did not blow into with magazines while walking town of Kanda.

At the bluish-skinned fish market birthplace, there is vegetable and fruit market of fruit (leaf vegetables and fruit) in here multi-town near Edo-jo Castle afterwards. When there were markets such as root vegetables in far-off place, we received explanation. It is digression, is it the result that there are more names called fruits and vegetables in around Kanda than name called vegetable store? It is simple guess.

Through Sudacho, we received explanation next about old building including pine and Yamamoto dentistry.

It is finally the exploration of the old forever bridge Station development spot.
At first it is helmet and mask, the yellow best wearing.
Feeling is one of the construction spot!

Earthquake-resistant concrete was put on the inside, and brick at the time of the Taisho era was left.

We do not do as commerce and let hydrophilicity which can take a walk through waterside last, and there seems to be idea such as maintenance releasing remains of an ancient structure of home and stairs of Bridge Station in former all generations.

Finally we looked at old forever bridge from the outside, and we learned places that there was of brick fading because it was older than Kanda Station, and there was from the Taisho era and sprain Bridge that there was not now, and town walk was finished.

We look forward to construction of building being over, and opening from from now. Opening seems to be plan from to - summer in the next spring.

It is photograph = completion expectation model of discount.
