I took photo above in front of ochanomizu railway station.
Ochanomizu (ocha-no-mizu) literally means "water of tea" or "water for tea" in English.
In Edo era, there was a fountain in a temple which was on north side of current kanda-gawa(river).
And the water of the fountain was given to Tokugawa shogun for making tea .
"ochanomizu" is not town name.
But the neighbourhood around ochanomizu station ( a part of kanda section and a part of yushima section ) is called ochanomizu.
This neighbourhood is well known as students town.
Because there are many university in ochanomizu.
Photo above is a monument of ochanomizu.
( It is not fountain )
The monument is on a corner of the crossing in the first photo.
Thiese photos were taken on Februarly , 21 , 2009.
