Denenchoofu, Den-en-chōfu, Denenchōfu 田園調布 Denenchofu district
Ota, 田園調布 一丁目 - 五丁目 first to fifth sub-district



This is a very expensive residential area and many famous people lived here.
The area spreads like a fan from the Western side of the station 田園調布駅.

In 1918, 渋沢栄一 Shibusawa Eiichi (1840 - 1931) and others founded the company 田園都市株式会社 to built an "ideal residential area.
Before that it was simply called 調布村 Chofumura, Chofu village.
It was a rural area growing 麻 hemp and 荢, which was shipped down the river Tamagawa 多摩川 / 玉川 and made into cloth sold in 府中 Fuchu.
The character 調 was also read mitsuki みつき, a kind of tax on the local cloth.

- - - - - Other place names with Denenchofu::

Denenchofu Honcho 田園調布本町 - no sub-districts

Denenchofu minami 田園調布南 - no sub-districts

Tamagawa Denenchofu 玉川田園調布」in Setagaya(世田谷区)
一丁目 - 二丁目 first and second sub-district

..............................................................................................................................................

- quote -
Den-en-chōfu lies along the Tama River, the natural border between Tokyo and Kawasaki, Kanagawa. It is served by Den-en-chōfu Station on the Tōkyū Tōyoko and Meguro lines. Den-en-chōfu includes many detached suburban homes with a variety of styles, including Japanese neo-classical, Edwardian villas, Swiss cottages and modern architectural designs.
- History
Den-en-chōfu was built based on the "Garden City" idea originally developed by the British city planner Ebenezer Howard. It is one of the most famous and top-class residential towns where many executives have their dwellings. Being 10 km away from the center of Tokyo, the area contains natural parks. The area has its own regulations for construction in order to preserve the town feel to the area. The residences are fairly big compared to normal housing in other areas in Japan, and the district is often compared to Beverly Hills in Los Angeles, U.S.A.
Den-en-chōfu
was planned as a garden suburb of Tokyo. In the early 1900s, financier Eiichi Shibusawa bought, named and developed the area by emulating the garden suburbs that were growing in metropolitan areas around the world, particularly those in Greater London.
Although the area was developing at an adequate pace,
it was the Great Kantō Earthquake of 1923 that guaranteed his success. Central Tokyo was leveled in the earthquake, but Den-en-chōfu was virtually untouched; in the aftermath, the exodus of people from the central city to the less crowded, cleaner suburbs ensured that the Den-en-chōfu would prosper.

- quote -
Shibusawa Eiichi, 1st Viscount Shibusawa 渋沢 栄一, (1840 – 1931)
a Japanese industrialist widely known today as the "father of Japanese capitalism".

He spearheaded the introduction of Western capitalism to Japan after the Meiji Restoration. He introduced many economic reforms including use of double-entry accounting, joint-stock corporations and modern note-issuing banks.
He founded the first modern bank
based on joint stock ownership in Japan. The bank was aptly named The First National Bank (Dai Ichi Kokuritsu Ginkō, now merged into Mizuho Bank) and had the power to issue its own notes. Through this bank, he founded hundreds of other joint stock corporations in Japan. Many of these companies still survive to this day as quoted companies in the Tokyo Stock Exchange, which Shibusawa also founded. The Japanese Chamber of Commerce and Industry was founded by him as well. He was also involved in the foundation of many hospitals, schools, universities (including the first women's university), the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and charitable organizations including the Japan Red Cross.
Another notable aspect of Shibusawa's career
is that, despite being the founder of hundreds of corporations, he refused to maintain a controlling stake in these corporations, effectively preventing himself from forming a zaibatsu. What is known as the Shibusawa zaibatsu was a holding company to look after his estate for his family. The Shibusawa Zaibatsu did not hold any controlling stake in any companies. Despite his lowly origin as a farmer, he was granted the title of Viscount, while all other zaibatsu founders were awarded the title of Baron. He was also awarded Shōnii, Second Honour under the ritsuryō rank system, which is usually given to high-ranking nobility and prime ministers.

Jiyuugaoka, Jiyūgaoka 自由が丘 Jiyugaoka district
Meguro, Jiyugaoka 一丁目 - 三丁目 first to third sub-district



A rather expensive residential area.
The name refers to a university campus named 自由ヶ丘学園 Jiyugaoka gakuen.
In 1927, the 東急東横線 Toyokosen opened a line and because there was a temple with 阿弥陀如来 nine Amida Nyorai Buddha statues, the area was called
Kuhonbutsu 九品仏. The name of the new 東横線 Toyokosen station was also Kuhonbutsu.
In 1929, when the 東急大井町線 line was prolonged, the Kuhonbutsu station became its station name.
So the Toyoko sen station was re-named Jiyugaoka Station.
In 1932, the name Jiyugaoka was given to the whole district.
In 1965, the spelling was changed from 自由ヶ丘 to 自由が丘 (with Hiragana GA が ).

- quote -
..... The name also refers to the broader area surrounding Jiyūgaoka Station, which includes both Jiyūgaoka, part of Midorigaoka and nearby Okusawa (奥沢) in Setagaya.
..... There are numerous apparel stores, speciality goods stores, cafes and restaurants. Jiyūgaoka is often considered as one of the most desirable places to live in Tokyo. The middle class demographic is also reflected in the concentration of private schools in the neighbourhood and the large number of after school juku.
- History
Jiyūgaoka was largely rural until the late 1920s, when rail service commenced. On 28 August 1927, Kuhonbutsu-mae Station (九品仏前駅 Kuhonbutsu-mae eki) was established on the Tōyoko Line. In the same year, Jiyūgaoka-gakuen High School was opened.
The school name, 自由ヶ丘学園高等学校, literally "Liberal Hill Academy", due to its liberal education (part of the Taishō period liberal education movement, later gave rise to the name of the nearby station and thence the entire area, similarly to the neighboring stations of Toritsu-Daigaku Station and Gakugei-daigaku Station (named for universities formerly located in the area). ...

Kawase Hasui Painter

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Kawase Hasui 川瀬巴水 (1883 - 1957)

- quote
He was one of the most prominent print designers of the shin-hanga ("new prints") movement.
..... Style
Kawase worked almost exclusively on landscape and townscape prints based on sketches he made in Tokyo and during travels around Japan. However, his prints are not merely meishō (famous places) prints that are typical of earlier ukiyo-e masters such as Hiroshige and Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849). Kawase's prints feature locales that are tranquil and obscure in urbanizing Japan.
Hasui
considered himself a realist and employed his training in Western painting in his compositions. Like Hiroshige he made travel and landscape prints, though his subjects were less known locations rendered with naturalistic light, shade, and texture, without the captions and titles that were standard in prints of Hiroshige's age.
Kawase
left a large body of woodblock prints and watercolors. Many of the watercolors are linked to the woodblock prints, he also produced oil paintings, traditional hanging scrolls and a few byōbu (folding screens).
In the West,
Kawase is mainly known as a Japanese woodblock printmaker. He and Hiroshi Yoshida are widely regarded as two of the greatest artists of the shin-hanga style, and are known especially for their landscape prints.

Kameari 亀有 Kameari district
Katsushika 亀有 一丁目 - 五丁目 first to fifth district / 西亀有 Nishi-Kameari



kame 亀 turtle / ari 有 there is
During the Muromachi period, this area was called Kamenashi (亀無、亀梨) "no turtle".
At the confluence of the former river 隅田川 Sumidagawa and 葛西川 Katsushikagawa there was a small island in the form of a turtle.
In 1644 the people living there did not like the name NASHI and changed it to ARI.

In 1889, 青戸村 Aoto village was merged with 亀有村 Kameari village、砂原村(西亀有付近)、上千葉村 as the village 東京府南葛飾郡亀青村 Kameao mura.
In 1918, 青砥駅 Aoto station was built.
In 1932, when the ward of Katsushika was created, 青戸町1 - 4丁 Aoto cho was allocated from the first to the fourth sub-district.
. Aoto 青砥 / 青戸 Aoto district, Katsushika .

- quote
The area is perhaps best known for being the location of the long-running manga and anime series
こちら葛飾区亀有公園前派出所 Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo
about the misadventures of a cranky middle-aged policeman working in a police box next to Kameari Park.
- source : tokyocheapo.com...



- quote -
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen Mae Hashutsujo (こちら葛飾区亀有公園前派出所,
lit. "This is the Police Station in Front of Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward"),
often shortened to KochiKame (こち亀), is a Japanese comedy manga series written and illustrated by Osamu Akimoto. It takes place in the present day, in and around a neighborhood police station (kōban) in the downtown part of Tokyo, and revolves around the misadventures of middle-aged cop Kankichi Ryotsu. The official English title is KochiKame: Tokyo Beat Cops.

It was continuously serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump for 40 years, from September 1976 to September 2016. Its 1,960 chapters were collected into 200 tankōbon volumes, making it the manga series with the highest number of volumes. The manga has been adapted into an anime television series, produced by Studio Gallop and broadcast in Japan by Fuji TV, three theatrical animated films (by Tatsunoko and Gallop, respectively), two live-action movies, several stage adaptations, and a live-action television series. As of 2014, the series had sold over 157 million tankōbon copies, making KochiKame one of the best-selling manga series in history. In 2005, TV Asahi named the anime number 36 on its list of the Top 100 Anime. The series was awarded a Guinness World Record for "Most volumes published for a single manga series."
... snip ...
Real-life KochiKame
The real neighborhood police station on which the manga one is based.
Kameari Koen is an actual park in Tokyo's Katsushika ward. The police station is fictional, but it is modeled after a real one located on the north side of Kameari railway station. The manga has brought considerable fame to the neighborhood, and it draws sightseers from all over Japan to a (usually vacant) station in a nondescript residential neighborhood. There is only a vacant lot where the police station is actually supposed to be located.
In February 2006, two life-size bronze statues of Ryo-san were erected at the north and south gates of Kameari Station. There is currently a trail of 14 statues in the area.
- - - More in the WIKIPEDIA !


Ryosan Dorayaki 両さんどら焼き

As the popularity of this district was falling, the local merchants thought of using KochiKame for their revitalization programs.
They asked the publisher of the manga for agreement, but he refused. Then they asked the author of "KochiKame" and he was quite pleased.
They begun to make Kochikame dorayaki sweets and statues of Kochikame at the station, at benches in the park and other places. Now visitors could take photos and as Instagram flourished, so florished Kameari.
Now a KochiKame character walks along the shopping street on Saturday and Sunday and they have popular drum concerts at the station.
