"There is congealed in the ōezu maps of Edo a peculiar compositional mode that fades from view when we look back from the perspective of a maps of Tokyo which introduced modern surveying techniques. At the center of the map is the white space of the shogun’s castle overlaid with the hollyhock crest of the Tokugawa around which is a mosaic of streets and daimyō residences reproduced with great precision. [...] This cartographic vision which scarcely changed for two hundred years suggests an image of urban space as it was understood by the people of early modern Japan.
It is a series of concentric circles with the castle at the center."

Tatamicho, Tatamichō, Tatamimachi 畳町 Tatami district
中央区京橋二・三丁目 Chuo ward, Kyobashi second and third district

This district of the Edo period was abolished in 1931.


source : edo.amebaownd.com...

It used to be located near 八重洲河岸(城辺河岸).
The name refers to the tatamisashi 畳刺 makers of tatami mats, who lived there.

In the South was a part named 古着新道 Furugi Jinmichi.
In the North was a part names 稲荷新道 Inari Jinmichi.

In 1866, it became part of Tokyo.
In 1878, it became part of 京橋区 Kyobashi ward.

Just one district to the West of 大工町 Daikucho.

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

The family business dated back to the Muromachi period.
藺阿弥 Iami also grew igusa rush material. The family name Iami was given by 織田信長 Oda Nobunaga.
The tatami maker family later served under Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

元柳町 Motoyanagicho、大工町 Daikucho、畳町 Tatamicho
新柳町 Shinyanagicho、増山町 Masuyamacho



大工町より一本西側にある南北の通りが畳町になります。
江戸期から昭和37年にかけての町名で、武田氏時代に造営された町のひとつです。
町名の由来は大工町と同じく、武田氏時代に畳職人の居住地として指定されたことによります。大工町と大きく違うのは、甲府城が築城されてからは、職人のほとんどが下府中へと移っており、寛延4(1751)年に畳職人は全くいなかったそうです。大正10年の地図では、三の堀が町を東西へ横断しているのが見えます。ほとんどが暗渠化されている三の堀ですが、畳町でははっきりと確認することが出来ます。

Kyobashi - Home of Edo's Craftsmen
The Tokaido is the main highway between Edo and Western Japan. Here in the downtown area of the city, though, it looks like just one more busy city street. As we get closer to the center of town, the streets which cross the Tokaido become broader and the buildings that line the streets become larger and more imposing. Most of the buildings on the main roads are large stores or the homes some of the city's more prosperous merchants. Kyobashi is the general name given to a large area of low-lying land that makes up one of the key commercial districts of Edo. The district occupies the flat land immediately to the West of Edo castle, and is an important center of the city's economy.
However, the reason why Kyobashi is such an important part of Edo's economy is that many communities of craftsmen and artisans live in the area. The people who practice each type of craft tend to gather together in certain neighborhoods, and for this reason, many neighborhoods in the Kyobashi area are named after the type of craftsmen who live there.
A few examples are:
Tatami-machi -- Mat-maker's village
Oke-machi -- Bucket-maker's village
Minami Daiku-machi -- South carpenter's village
Minami Kaji-machi -- South blacksmith's village
Teppo-machi -- Gunsmith's village

A shrine well known for its gorgeous festival, with more than 1,000 years of history.
It is one of the oldest shrines in Tokyo.
It is said that in 940 a warrior called Tawara Tota Hidesato prayed for victory and to beat a strong enemy, and he dedicated a silver fox statue.
It is also said that Ota Dokan's ritual for rain at this shrine saved people from drought at the end of the 15th century.
It is counted as the three forests of Edo, and many people still worship there.

Tokyo Olympics 2020



Manga artist Hirohiko Araki’s
“The Sky above The Great Wave off the Coast of Kanagawa”

is a dynamic scene of Paralympians in motion. Inspired by Katsushika Hokusai’s woodblock print masterpiece “The Great Wave,”
Araki said he “imagined the gods of sports descending on Japan from a sky filled with clouds resembling turbulent waves.”

Tonogayato Teien 殿ヶ谷戸庭園 Tonogayato Garden, Park
6 Chome-69-30 Nishi-Sunacho, Tachikawa, Tokyo


- reference : 庭園へ行こう > 殿ヶ谷戸庭園 -

- quote
Tonogayato Garden (殿ヶ谷戸庭園, Tonogayato Teien)
is a traditional Japanese garden located in Kokubunji, Tokyo. Its name comes from the region's old name, Tonogayato, Kokubunji village. The garden covers an area of 21,124 square metres (5.2 acres).
- - - - - History
The garden was laid out between 1913-15 in the grounds of a villa built for Eguchi Teijo, the Vice-President of the Manchurian Railway, who was a senior director of the Mitsubishi group. In 1929, the garden was purchased by the founder of Mitsubishi, Iwasaki Yatarō, who completed it as a circular style garden with a tea house. It was used as a villa for the Iwasaki Family. In response to a plan to develop the area for other uses, local residents started a campaign to preserve the garden. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government eventually purchased it in 1974 and opened it to the public in 1979. In 1998, the Tonogayato Garden was designated as a Place of Scenic Beauty by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
- - - - - Features
The garden is centered on a pond and uses the natural terrain of the Musashino Plateau by incorporating the valleys found in the terrace cliffs into its design. The highlight is the strikingly different types of landscape: a scenic spacious lawn on the top, steep slopes, a pond with waterfalls and bamboo forest at the bottom. There is a depression in the pond containing a natural spring called Jiro Benten that provides large quantities of fresh water. Water that runs off the cliff is a part of the source of the Nogawa River.
A tea house called Koyo-tei is also situated in the gardens.

3.五日市街道沿いに、西砂町宮沢交差点近く。
五日市街道に交差する道は、北側が「殿ヶ谷街道」 Tonogaya Kaido
昔は、
殿ヶ谷戸という地名は、小字(こあざ)名で、丸山も含めたこの辺一帯の地名だった。谷戸(やと)という地名からすると丸山と小高い殿ヶ谷戸庭園の(国分寺)崖線との中間地帯のイメージだが、小字名としての殿ヶ谷戸は範囲が広く、そのため、地図では丸山の反対側にある長谷戸の北にある縄文遺跡の発掘地も「とのがや遺跡」と呼ばれている。
その「とのがや遺跡」
の発見時の話しが国分寺市の「ふるさと国分寺のあゆみ」という本に掲載されている。1894年(明治27年)に「東京人類学会雑誌」という雑誌に発表された論文では「遺跡の位置」を「東京から来てレールの左側の「ひよどり越え」あるいは「とのが谷」といわれている場所」としていた。ちなみにこの地に中央線が開通したのは明治22年である。

Iwasaki Yataro 岩崎弥太郎 Iwasaki Yatarō
(1834 - 1885)

- quote -
a Japanese financier and shipping industrialist, and the founder of Mitsubishi.
Iwasaki was born in a provincial farming family in Aki, Tosa province (now Kōchi Prefecture), the great-grandson of a man who had sold his family's samurai status in obligation of debts. Iwasaki began his career as an employee of the Yamauchi clan. The clan had business interests in many parts of Japan.
Iwasaki left for Edo (now Tokyo) aged nineteen for his education. He interrupted his studies a year later when his father was seriously injured in a dispute with the village headman. When the local magistrate refused to hear his case, Iwasaki accused him of corruption. Iwasaki was sent to prison for seven months. After his release, Iwasaki was without a job for a time before finding work as a teacher.
Returning to Edo,
he socialised with political activists and studied under the reformist Yoshida Toyo, who influenced him with ideas of opening and developing the then-closed nation through industry and foreign trade. Through Yoshida, he found work as a clerk for the Yamauchi government, and bought back his family's samurai status. He was promoted to the top position at the Yamauchi clan's trading office in Nagasaki, responsible for trading camphor oil and paper to buy ships, weapons, and ammunition. ...
Iwasaki became president of Mitsubishi in March 1870. ...

Katsushika ward, 南葛飾郡金町 Minami-Katsushika
and the sub-districts Higashi-Kanamachi, Kanamachi jōsuijō, Niijuku and Tōganemachi (Toganemachi)



Kanamachi was formerly called 金町郷 Kanamachi Go.
It thrived as part of the 下総国香取神宮領 Katori Jingu Shrine of Shimofusa, Chiba.

Later renamed to 金町村 Kanamachi mura village.
In 1399 in the records of 葛西御厨注文 and in 1559 in the records of 小田原衆所領役帳 the name is already mentioned.
In the record 三浦和田文書 the place is also mentioned as 下総国金町郷.

In the middle ages, the Shinto Shrine 葛西神社(かさいじんじゃ) Kasai Jinja (later 香取神宮 Katori Jingu) became an important place in the area.

In the Edo period, it became a postal station of the Mito Kaido Highway and a sekisho 関所 barrier station at the river crossing:
金町松戸御関所 Kanamachi Matsudo Gosekisho,

located at 葛飾区東金町8-23 Higashi-Kanamachi.

During the Edo period, Niijuku became the second postal station of the
. Mito Kaido 水戸街道 Mito Highway .
Nii juku (新宿 / にいじゅく) Niijuku in Katsushika, (not to mix with Shinjuku 新宿)
Matsudo 松戸 is the third postal station along the 水戸街道 Mito Kaido highway,
on the Chiba side of the river 利根川 Tonegawa.

For protection purposes of the barrier they needed hooks and other tools for the carpenters made form metal (金 kana).
One tool was the kanejaku 曲尺 (カネジャク) curved ruler.
The area of the craftsmen was first called Magarikane 曲金(マガリカネ)"bent metal".
Kanemachi 金町 could also be written 曲町(カナマチ).
