We usually call this cathedral "Nikorai-do"(Nicolai Cathedral).
It is a symbol of ochanomizu.
This cathedral was built in 1891.
Unfortunately, it was half destroyed by great kanto earthquake in 1923.
But it was restored in 1929.
Please imagine Tokyo 100 years ago.
There was no tall building, and not so noisy.
They could see this beautiful cathedral from far away, and the bell would sound far and wide.
Thanks for walking with me from akihabara electric town to here.
This walking course is not so long, but you can enjoy the scenery changing dramatic.
I hope you to walk there if you visit Tokyo.
By the way, I will post photos about ochanomizu in several days.
Ochanomizu is a my favorite place in Tokyo.
