In former times there was a tea stall called "O-Hana Chaya" Flower Tea Stall in this area.
Once 徳川八代将軍吉宗 Shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune was takagari 鷹狩り hunting with falcons in the area. Suddenly he became a stomach pain and the daughter of the local tea stall named O-Hana cared for him in a very kind way. To show his gratitude he granted the tea shop the name.
お花茶屋 Ohanajaya can also be translated as "Tea stall of the girl O-Hana".

- quote -
The area was located on the Hikifunegawa 曳舟川 Hikifune River which was also known as the Kasai Yōsui 葛西用水 the Kasai Waterway or Kasai Kanal which flowed from present day Katsushika Ward to present day Sumida Ward. In fact, its terminus in Sumida is where present day Hikufune is located. In the early years of the Edo Period, it was a 上水 jōsui a drinking water supply; however it soon was demoted to a common waterway for small boats. Apparently it was a quite scenic spot, as it is depicted in many surviving works of art.
The river was filled in during the preparations for the Tōkyō Olympics in 1964 and subsequent development has completely obscured the river’s original path.
