久しぶりに神保町に訪れた。新しいビルが建っているけれど、その隙間隙間に昔ながらの古本屋がポツポツと立ち並ぶ。時間があったらじっくり古本屋巡りをしたいけれど、今日は通りすぎるだけ。

I visited Jinbocho in Tokyo. It’s been long time since I came here. I sow new building but some of selling used book shop are opening between new. If I had time to stop by, I’m afraid I didn’t have much time to do it.

神保町の古本屋

 

神保町は、古本屋とカレーとてんぷらやの街だと私は思っている。ちょっと調べてみると、そのとおりで、神保町は千代田区にあり、日本大学、明治大学などがあり、学生や研究者が訪れる場所だったので、大正時代からは書店街として知られ、出版社もこの場所にある。

My impression of Jinbocho is well-known town as used book shop, curry and tempra (deep fried fish) . I think it could be right. As far as I look for this area, yes, correct. Jinbocho is located at Chiyoda-ku where is center of Tokyo and famous universities are located such as Nihon university, Meiji university and so on. That’s why many of students and scholars visit this area. Also book publishers run their business there.

 

なんでてんぷらの印象があるかというと、昔、水道橋に勤めていた時に、ランチタイムによく神保町方面に足を運んで、いもやに通っていたからかもしれない。ここは手ごろでおいしくって、ボリューム満点!カレーは、お店の名前を覚えてないけど、老舗がひしめく激戦区。今度はカレーを食べにいこう。

Why I have an impression of Tempra, I used to work near Jinbocho and visit “Imoya “ where is one of famous Tempra shop and provides cheap, delicious meal. It’s very good restaurant. And for a curry, I don’t remember which shop I visited, but I’m sure here is lots of good curry shop around here. I will come here to have good curry.
