Myooshoojigawa, Myōshōjigawa 妙正寺川 river Myoshojigawa



The name refers to the temple Myosho-Ji, where it starts.

- quote
... designated as a Class A river by the Japanese government with a length of 9.7 km and a basin area of 21.4 km².
It starts in the 妙正寺池(Myōshōji Temple pond in Suginami Ward, and joins the Edo River later on. It flows into the Kanda River (Takadanobaba Channel) in Shinjuku Ward.
東京都杉並区の妙正寺公園内妙正寺池(すぐそばにある妙正寺に由来)に源を発し、途中中野区松が丘二丁目で江古田川を合わせ、新宿区下落合一丁目の辰巳橋付近で神田川高田馬場分水路に合流する。

- Recent history
Due to the progress of urbanization, the water retention capacity of the Myōshōji River has fallen and there is an increasing risk of water damage. To cope with this situation, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has constructed revetments that can handle rainfall of up to 50 millimeters per hour.

- quote -

江戸時代の蛍狩りの名所としては、谷中の蛍沢や王子の音無川などが知られていたが、特に、
神田上水と妙正寺川の清流が落ち合うことが名の由来といわれている「落合」の蛍は、大きくてひときわ明るかったようだ。
