101007-0066 - Streetcars in Jinbocho


Tokyo Taisho 1910s Unknown

Streetcars on Jinbocho Dori in Jinbocho (神保町), Tokyo.

The area is named after a samurai by the name of Nagaharu Jinbo, who lived here in the 17th century.

After the area was destroyed by a huge fire in 1913 (Taisho 2), Shigeo Iwanami started a bookstore in this area, which grew into Iwanami Shoten publishing house and launched the area as Tokyo’s center of used book stores and publishing houses.

From a series called Famous Places in the Capital (帝都名所, Teito Meisho).
