Here are 5 things to do (guitar street, foods, and some sightseeing spots) in the vicinity of the Ochanomizu Station.

Feel free to follow favy!

Shop For Used Musical Instruments

Ochanomizu is the most famous place in Tokyo to shop for used instruments, especially guitars. It used to be a hub for importing instruments in the 1980s, and that culture is still present today. You can find some brand names at reasonable prices, and some super rare ones too. If you are a connoisseur, you will love exploring Ochanomizu.

The shops are mostly located along Meidai Dori, the main street when you exit the Ochanomizu Station. Meidai Dori is also known as "Guitar Street".

Holy Resurrection Cathedral 東京復活大聖堂 (ニコライ堂)

Ochanomizu is the home of an impressive cathedral of the Japanese Orthodox Church. It was originally built in 1891, large parts of it were destroyed during the Great Kanto earthquake, and it was then rebuilt to largely resemble its original state afterwards.

Address: 4-1-3 Kanda Surugadai, Chiyoda, Tokyo

Yushima Seido 湯島聖堂

There is another interesting place of worship called Yushima Seido. It is a temple dedicated to the Chinese philosopher Confucius. It was a sort of school as well were people up to 1871 would learn about Confucianism. The temple is on the north side of the Kanda river, at about a 3-minute walk from the station.

Address: 1-4-25 Yushima, Bunkyo, Tokyo

For Matcha Lovers: Green Tea Restaurant 1899 Ochanomizu

If you are looking for a place to eat, you might want to try this place. Green tea Restaurant 1899's concept is to combine Japanese cuisine with matcha; you can sample all sorts of delicious dishes with a matcha flavour. From June 1st to September 30th, you can enjoy the beer garden. It is ¥3,500/per person, and ¥3,000 if you book online, for unlimited beer! There are different types of beer you can choose from: black tea beer, hojicha (roasted green tea) beer, matcha beer, etc. If you're a beer and a tea lover, you should try this!

Have The Best Udon In Tokyo At Maruka

At about a 7-minute walk from the Ochanomizu Station is quite possibly the most popular restaurant in Tokyo for Udon noodles. The place is called Maruka. It is cheap and really delicious according to so many udon lovers' comments on online sites. The downside is that you might have to wait for a little while to get in.
