Passengers can also transfer to nearby Shin-ochanomizu Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.

Location[edit]

JR East's Ochanomizu station lies next to the Kanda River. During the Edo period, the Kanda River was rerouted to pass through Ochanomizu, which was otherwise a highland between two valleys. Hijiribashi (聖橋, also known as Hijiri Bridge, Hijiribashi Bridge) crosses over the river near a station exit. The subway Marunouchi Line makes a short above-ground appearance as it passes over the river. Holy Resurrection Cathedral (Nicholai-dō) is easily accessible from the Hijiribashi Exit of this station. The Ochanomizu neighborhood is known for its many guitar and instrument shops.

The Tokyo Metro station is located in Bunkyō Ward, separate from the JR East station, and is served by the Marunouchi Line. The area is also served by the Chiyoda Line at Shin-Ochanomizu, which is connected to Ogawamachi station on the Toei Shinjuku Line.
