Yushima Confucian Shrine in Ochanomizu
Yushima Seido near Ochanomizu Station

Yushima Confucian Shrine is the place to be deifying Confucius to have established and for 5 brigadier army Tokugawa Tsunayoshi who concentrated on Confucianism to have explained teaching by Confucianism to this place. Moreover, it is the vacant lot where "the Shoheizaka learning place" which was named, taking the place name where Confucius was born from this place existed and it is the place to have played a role of the education center as the national university in the Edo period to the Meiji restoration. Success is made public inside the inside only on the weekend. It will be the place which the foreigner, too, is glad about as the space of the silent Japanese culture in the downtown.

The temple (the success) is the one of present, being burned down, being in the great fire with four times in the Edo period. The success is Great Kanto Earthquake and is the one to have reconstructed burned one by the ferroconcrete appearance in 1935 (1935) but the one where only 入 Tokujiyo was built in 1704 is left just as it is.

It is specified by the historical site in the country in 1922 (1922).

Prayer of a lot of passes is written at the votive picture tablet.

Ochano Mizu Station

Ochanomizu Station is located in the northern part of Kanda district of Chiyoda Ward of Tokyo. It serves the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi subway line. It is also a junction station between the rapid JR Chuo Main Line and the local JR Chuo-Sobu Line. The Marunouchi station is situated on the north bank of Kanda River, while the JR Chuo and JR Chuo-Sobu Lines station is on the south bank of the river just across from the Marunouchi station. The Chuo and Sobu Lines share platforms, making it easy for commuters wishing to switch between the two lines to do so without changing platforms.

The area around Ochanomizu Station was a central quarter during the Edo period, and hence it contains a number of historically interesting sights.

Tokyo Dome is the home stadium of the Yomiuri Giants and Nippon Ham, two professional baseball teams of Japan . Besides baseball, American football, basketball, and wrestling matches are also held here. This 55,000 seat stadium holds concerts, festivals, shows, and other major events as well when there are no games. Completed and opened in 1988, Tokyo Dome is the largest stadium in Japan .

The Tokyo “Dome” is air-supported with air being constantly being blown into the dome by a pressure fan. This keeps the air pressure inside the dome 0.3% higher than outside, which holds the covering membrane in place. There are revolving doors at all the entrances and exits, which minimize the loss of air from inside. Among the many sports events held here are: Baseball – Chicago Cubs and New York Mets opening game of the 2000 season, and Tampa Bay Devil Rays and New York Yankees opening game of the 2004 season; Boxing championship fight between Mike Tyson and James Douglas in 1990; and the NFL pre-season game of 2005 between Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts.

Opened in 1959, the museum moved to its present location in 1988 when Tokyo Dome was opened. The Hall of Fame has bronze relief portraits of all those people – players, umpires, executives - who made contributions to the development of baseball in Japan . The museum houses various materials related to baseball, including baseballs and bats with signatures of all the past great players, besides other memorabilia and photos. Some exhibits are permanent, others rotate after a certain period of time. The museum also has a library with about 50,000 books on baseball and other sports. There are also video terminals with baseball related shows. The Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum is among the best museums of its kind and a must for all sports lovers.

NTT DoCoMo Yoyogi Building - the NTT stands for Nippon (Japan) Telegraph and Telephone. DoCoMo is Japanese for "everywhere."
