Neighborhoods in Bunkyo:
Hongō (本郷) is located in Bunkyō, west of Ueno and north of the Tokyo Imperial Palace. Hongō was a ward of the former city of Tokyo until 1947, when it merged with another ward, Koishikawa, to form the modern Bunkyō.
Hongō is home to the University of Tokyo, Juntendo and Toyo Gakuen Universities. This was where Yaoya Oshichi, a greengrocer's daughter who was burned at the stake for arson in 1683, lived.
Koishikawa (小石川) consists of five sub-areas, 1-5 chome (1~5丁目).
Located nearby with the same name are two well regarded gardens: the Koishikawa Botanical Garden (related to Tokyo University) in Hakusan, and the Koishikawa Korakuen Garden in Korakuen.
Yayoi (弥生) is a neighborhood in Bunkyo, Tokyo. In 1884, when it was part of Tokyo City, it was the location of a shell mound where a type of pottery was discovered. The pottery became known as Yayoi, and eventually a period of Japanese history assumed the same name.
