江戸幕府が倒れて明治時代(1868-)に入り、日本の首都の名前が「江戸」から「東京」に変わってからも、その水路は活用されていました。

Even after the fall of the Edo Shogunate and the Meiji era (1868-), the name of the Japanese capital changed from "Edo" to "Tokyo", the waterway was still in use.

1901(明治34)年ころに「淀橋浄水場」(東京都庁舎など、現在の西新宿高層ビル群の場所)が完成する前まで、玉川上水は首都東京の貴重な水源でした。

Tamagawa Aqueduct was a valuable water source for the capital Tokyo until around 1901 (Meiji 34) when the "Yodobashi Water Purification Plant" (the location of the current Nishi-Shinjuku skyscrapers such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building) was completed.

玉川上水は、今は道路の下を流れており、その面影はありません。新宿区は、その歴史的価値を残すため、かつての流れに沿って「玉川上水・内藤新宿分水散歩道」を整備しています。

Tamagawa Aqueduct is now flowing under the road, and there is no sign of it. Therefore, Shinjuku Ward is trying to pass on the historical value of Tamagawa Aqueduct to the next generation by developing the "Tamagawa Aqueduct / Naito Shinjuku Branch Water Walkway" in line with the old trend.

散策道から少し先には、担当者を置いて玉川上水の水量や水質を管理した、「水番所」の跡地などを示す史跡も残されています。

A short distance from the walking path, there is also a historic site that shows the site of the "Mizubansho". A person in charge was stationed here to manage the amount and quality of Tamagawa Aqueduct.

Hi @abbey701, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden looks really amazing .. very green ! The stream water looks very clean. nice photo's cheers ! #oneprecent #srilanka

Thanks for your comment! There is an admission fee of 500 yen (or about $ 4.7) to enter Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden. This time I introduced the outside of the garden, but of course the inside of the garden is also wonderful, so I will introduce it someday.

I have been to many parks but haven’t seen that place yet. Thanks for the information. The place looks so cool with lots of trees. I might visit that place someday.

Thank you for your comment. It seems that there are still many wonderful places in Tokyo that we can enjoy for free.

Greetings, the tour that you have given us through your publication is fascinating, without a doubt the city of Tokyo is a natural place, the mixture between the things that man created and the nature born of God is interesting. I have selected your post for my second Better Life report.
