Kanamachi station (Joban Line) has great access to the central points of Tokyo such as Ochanomizu, Otemachi, and Yoyogi Uehara via Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line. It takes only 22 minutes to Shin Ochanomizu, 25 minutes to Otemachi and 45 minutes to Yoyogi Uehara station without transferring. It is also convenient to go to Funabashi area via the Keisei Line with one transfer at Keisai Takasago station.


A 41 storey big tower mansion called ‘Vinasis Kanamachi’ is a symbol of
redevelopment in the Kanamachi area. The Tokyo University of Science is located nearby
on the other side of railroad. The area around the station has plenty of little shops, restaurants, cafes, to meet your needs. We also recommend that you visit ‘Mizumoto Park’ which is a beautiful and peaceful place to relax away from the busy city life. If you look hard enough you can find places that allow barbecues and picnic style gatherings. You may forget that you are in Tokyo! This town offers a bit of everything: some nature, shopping, convenience, and affordable rates.
