Otemachi Restaurant Guide

Otemachi is situated on the border of the Chiyoda and Chuo wards.The town around the "Ote" castle gate was originally called "Otemachi" and the the Ote gate of the imperial palace is close by, so the whole district is referred to as Otemachi.This location is both the start and finish of the traditional Hakone relay race held in early spring.Together with the neighboring Marunouchi it is one of the world's leading business centers, and the main headquarters of many government, financial, media, and business institutions are situated here - the heart of Japan's economy.Because Otemachi is a business district residential buildings are few, and Otemachi's first and second district have a combined registered population of one person. (As of October 1st, 2014.)Amidst the rows of office buildings is a single street corner lush with greenery.One of Tokyo's historical ruins, the burial site for the head of Masakado Taira. The locals have long regarded this ghost of old Edo with a mixture of fear and awe, and he is said to protect the surrounding area.Even now the constant fragrance has not worn away. The nearby Mitsubishi Tokyo UFJ Bank has a account for the volunteers who clean and repair the grave site under the name of "Masakado Taira".
