Travel Guide - Yushima Seido

InformationInformation

Yushima Seido dates back to a private school started by Hayashi Razan at Ueno Shinobugaoka in 1630. Then the school was moved to Yushima by the 5th Tokugawa Shogun Tsunayoshi in 1690, and a school called "Shoheizaka gakumonjo" was opened in the premises in 1797. It was a Cheng-Zhu school run by the Tokugawa Shogunate. The Yushima Seido's existing Taisei-den Hall (Temple of Confucius), having characteristics of Chinese-style architecture, was reconstructed in 1935 after once destroyed by the Great Kanto earthquake in 1923.

I recommend west side of Yushima Seido if you're Akiba freak. It's a good plase free for road parking :-)
