A Walk around Kudanshita (Part 3) / 九段下の散歩 (パート3)

In my previous post, I mentioned there was one other place in Kudanshita that I wanted to take a walk around. The area is also within walking distance of the Yasukuni Shrine and is mostly known for being the venue of large concerts. In fact, one American band recorded their show here and the album was a bestseller! That would be Cheap Trick with their live album - "Live at Budokan" and yes, it is around Budokan, or rather Kitanomaru Park that I went walking!

The day I went, there was a concert by a band called SADS playing.
