Edogawaku in Tokyo is on a narrow shape area extending north and south in between Arakawa and Edogawa River. Before Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first Shogun of Edo Bakufu, settled in Edo, there had been wide wetlands. Areas called Ichinoe, Ninoe, Mizue, Harue and Matsue has 'e' in their ends and 'e' means water bodies flowing into lands, thus, they imply that there are lakes or seas in Edogawaku at that time. Moreover, areas named Kojima (a small island), Matsushima (a pine island) and Nagashima (a long island) are in the city. They all tell what the city looked like at that time. Ieyasu started Tonegawa Tosen (the project of moving Tonegawa River to east,) then the lands (now in Edogawaku) was dried and people opened their fields and they grew much food for people in Edo, so they called it 'Edo no Daidokoro (the kitchen of Edo). And there are many shrines and temples along the water parks, especially, Shinkawa, Furukawa Water Park, Ichinoe Sakaigawa Water Park and Komatsugawa Sakaigawa Water Park has many temples along them, it implies that these areas had been flourished by water transportation then since to build a temple or a shrine needs much money.
