Ochanomizu Restaurant Guide

The whole region from Yushima in Bunkyo ward out to Kanda's Surugadai in Chiyoda ward is called Ochanomizu. The boundary line for the two wards runs along the Kanda river.In the Edo era the whole area was a daimyo's estate. There are a number of educational institutes such as Tokyo Medical and Dental University and Meiji University, and more. (By the way, even though Ochanomizu University had stood on the current location of Tokyo Medical and Dental University, it was destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake and has been relocated.)Because of that it is home to Japan's largest collection of booksellers, muscial instrument stores, and sporting goods stores catering to students and other young people, as well as hobbyists of all ages.It is also home to a number of religious institutions like Yushima Church and Holy Resurrection Cathedral. The bridge that spans the Kanda river to connect these two churches was completed in 1927 (Showa 2) and named "Hijiribashi (Holy Bridge)".The bridge was designed in an arched shaped to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible to viewers from the boats below and is lit up at night to give it an even more charming appearance.It is also the location of the head offices of many major publishing companies, giving the town a cultured atmosphere.
