Ochanomizu(御茶ノ水)- Tokyo travelguide

 

          It is said that Ochanomizu got its name because the water (Mizu) for the tea (Ocha) of the Shogun was taken there from the Kanda River. Ochanomizu literally means "Tea water"One of the slopes that was constructed, the Ochanomizu Saka,  for this purpose  can still be found across the river from the station.

Ochanomizu Saka

          Ochanomizu used to be part of the greater Kanda area. At the beginning of Edo's history this area was a talk hill, called Kanda Yama. It was in fact higher than the hill on which Edo Castle was built. Since the castle was surrounded by a swamp and probably because a higher hill next door was from a  military point of view not desirable, Tokugawa Ieyasu had the hill leveled and the marshes filled. This all resulted in flattened hill, where trees were planted and most of the daimyo built their residences because of its proximity to Edo Castle thus creating the up-town area as opposed to the down-town area or Shita-machi.

 

Uchi-Kanda

        About fifty years after Edo had been created the city had grown so much that water supply threatened to become a potential disaster. It was therefore decided to dig the Kanda-gawa to carry water from the North-west to the city. This project split Kanda in two parts with a rather steep valley in-between. The part that was closest to the castle became know as Uchi-Kanda, or Inner-Kanda, while the outer part was named Soto-Kanda. Ochanomizu is in Soto-Kanda.

 

Ochanomizu Station

        Surely the most distinctive bridge here is the Hijiribashi Bridge, or the "Saints Bridge", because it make the connection between the Yushima Seido, the temple of Confucius, and Nikolai-do, the Russian Orthodox Church built in Ochanomizu in the 19th century.

 

Nikolaido Ochanomizu

        Since many universities are just on a stones throw distance from Ochanomizu, it is probably not surprising that numerous bookstores  can be found here. It is also a business district with many pachinko parlors.
