"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."

Kita ward, Asukayama

[ . BACK to DARUMA MUSEUM TOP . ]
. Famous Places and Powerspots of Edo 江戸の名所 .
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Kita ku 北区 Kita ward, "Northern Ward"



- quote -
The ward was founded on March 15, 1947.
- The name Kita, meaning "north," reflects the location among the wards of Tokyo. To its North lie the cities of Kawaguchi and Toda in Saitama Prefecture. To the east, south and west lie other special wards: Adachi, Arakawa, Itabashi, Bunkyō, and Toshima.
- History
The area was a collection of rural villages and towns until the 1880s, when it was connected by rail to central Tokyo (Oji Station opening in 1883). Parts of the area joined Tokyo City in 1932 as the Oji and Takinogawa wards. Kita was officially formed in 1947 by the merger of these wards.
Four rivers run through Kita:
荒川 Arakawa River
隅田川 Sumida River
石神井川(音無川) Shakujii River
新河岸川 Shingashi River


Asukayama Park (飛鳥山公園 Asukayama Kōen)
is a public park in Kita,
- History
In the early eighteenth century, shogun Tokugawa Yoshimune planted many cherry trees in the area and opened up the land for the enjoyment of the "Edokko" or citizens of Tokyo. The park was formally established, alongside Ueno Park, Shiba Park, Asakusa Park, and Fukagawa Park, in 1873 by the Dajō-kan, as Japan's first public parks.
In 1998, three museums were opened inside the park, designed by AXS Satow: the Kita City Asukayama Museum (北区飛鳥山博物館), the Shibusawa Memorial Museum (渋沢史料館), and the Paper Museum (紙の博物館).

..... A small inclined monorail called the Asukayama Park Monorail (飛鳥山公園モノレール) is provided on the north side of the park to provide access free-of-charge to the park for the mobility-impaired.

Asukayama 飛鳥山

- quote
飛鳥山 Asukayama (Mt. Asuka)
... Commoners also came, providing they had the time and wherewithal to make a day trip. You see, walking to Asukayama wasn’t easy – even for the rich. This small “mountain” was located outside of Edo in an area known as 武蔵国豊嶋郡王子村 Musashi no Kuni - Toshima-gun 豊嶋郡 Toshima District, , Ōji Mura 王子村 Ōji Village, Musashi Province. Today this area isn’t part of 豊島区 Toshima-ku Toshima Ward, but rather a part of Tōkyō’s 北区 Kita-ku Kita Ward on the northernmost border of 東京都 Tōkyō-to Tōkyō Metropolis and 埼玉県 Saitama-ken Saitama Prefecture.
The village of Ōji
wasn’t a shukuba machi 宿場町 post town, but by the middle of the Edo Period, it was fully prepared to accommodate as many hanami-goers as possible. Elegant teahouses in this rustic area catered to samurai and merchants, but there were also more modest accommodations available for wealthy farmers who might also have made the long journey out here. Presumably, drinking, whoring were rampant.

阿須賀 Asuka
飛鳥 asuka, flying bird

I provided two spelling variants because the first version is used in religious contexts, but the second is used in maps and local histories. Just as spoken language has dialectal differences, kanji use seems to have been localized as well – especially in the untamed eastern provinces. That said, we know there was a 山城 yamajiro hilltop fortress controlled by the 豊嶋氏 Toshima-shi Toshima clan. The fortification at the top of this ovoid plateau was called 飛鳥山城 Asukayama-jō Asukayama Castle. This is reflected the area’s larger administrative name until recently, which was the Toshima District.
The branch of the Toshima clan
that moved to this eastern area, originated in modern 和歌山県 Wakayama-ken Wakayama Prefecture. The area we’re going to be referring to is located in the 紀伊半島 Kii Hantō Kii Peninsula. This is the same area where you can find the 熊野古道 Kumano Kodō Kumano Pilgrimages, a series of ancient roads connecting various religious sites in the Kii Peninsula that date back to at least the 900’s. A specific shrine, associated with the Toshima clan was the 33rd station along the course called the 熊野曼荼羅 Kumano Mandara – this shrine was Asuka Jinja 阿須賀神社 Asuka Shrine.
Open their arrival in the Kantō Chiho 関東地方 Kantō Area,
the Toshima used a process called 分霊 bunrei to split the 神 kami deity of Asuka Shrine in Wakayama and transport it to Ōji Jinja 王子神社 Ōji Shrine as the tutelary kami of their fort on the hill. Ōji Shrine was to serve as their tutelary kami. The difference between the kanji for “Asuka” are quite different, but there doesn’t seem to be any difference etymologically. Maybe the new variant was easier for locals to read – although to me, the original spelling is much clearer.
A Strong Connection to Kii Domain
... the Toshima clan originated in modern day Wakayama Prefecture. From ancient times until the end of the Edo Period, much of that area was called Kii no Kuni 紀伊国 Kii Province, and in fact one of the most important Tokugawa fiefs was in Kii Province, Kii Han 紀伊藩 Kii Domain. The Kii Tokugawa-ke 紀伊徳川家 Kii Tokugawa Family were part of the go-sanke 御三家 the Three Great Families – branch families sired by Tokugawa Ieyasu that were expected to produce a shogun, should the main line fail to produce a capable male successor. The other two families were the Owari Tokugawa-ke 尾張徳川家 Owari Tokugawa Family and the Mito Tokugawa-ke 水戸徳川家 Mito Tokugawa Family.

- - - - - History
This town was named after the Kichijō-ji Temple which was located in Bunkyō City, Tokyo, before being destroyed by fire in the year 1657. This temple, in turn, derived its name from the Hindu goddess Lakshmi, corresponding to Kisshōten in Japan.
During the Great fire of Meireki,
the town in front of Suwazan Kichijō-ji Temple gate, Edo's Hongo Motomachi was destroyed by fire. Afterwards, based on town planning, the Shogunate rebuilt the area for Daimyō residences. Since the residents who used to live in front of Kichijo-ji gate had suffered great loss of residence and farm land, the shogunate's official reed lands named "Reno" and "Mureno" were provided as substitute land for them. Those hoping to apply were given a rice stipend and house construction loans with a 5 year limit. Kichijo-ji samurai, 佐藤定右衛門 Sato Sadaemon and 宮崎甚右衛門 Miyazaki Jinemon, in cooperation with local farmer 松井十郎左衛門 Matsui Jurozaemon, opened up the eastern district of present day Musashino and relocated the residents there.
Soon after,
with the opening of the 玉川上水 Tamagawa Aqueduct, the previously poorly watered uninhabited Musashino Plateau was cultivated, turning it into a vast farmland. In the process, the neatly partitioned thin rectangular shaped plots of land along Itsukaichi Kaidō (currently Tokyo Metropolitan Route 7, Suginami Akiruno Line) were formed. Some migrants were granted great lengths of land of more than 1000 meters long in the land area extending from Itsukaichi Kaidō to the Tamagawa Aqueduct, up to where the 千川上水 Senkawa Aqueduct divides. But the soil was not particularly fertile, so all of the farmland became dry soil fields, with no wet rice fields. Because of the residents who still had attachment to the former Kichijo-ji,
the new fields were named Kichijōji Village. .....

ijuu 異獣 a monster animal
Around 1675, in Kichijomura in the South of Kyoto, the statue of 吉祥天女 Kichijoten was open for public viewing.
Many people from the nearby villages came, chanting the 六斎念仏 Rokusai Nenbutsu prayer. They made a lot of noise with their prayer gongs and prayer drums. Suddenly a huge monster animal came out and run away to hide under the veranda of a village house. They managed to catch it.
If had the face of a tanuki 狸 badger and was black from the nose to the top of the front. The neck was white, the back was black and the stomach was white. Its buttocks looked like a tokkuri 徳利 sake container. It had no tail and looked more like a mole. Its back legs were long like that of a dog.
For its food it would only eat 串柿 dried persimmons on a stick.
