Kanda Station is located in the Kanda district of Chiyoda Ward of Tokyo. It serves the JR Chuo, Keihin-Tohoku, and Yamanote Lines; and the Tokyo Metro Ginza subway line.

Kanda Station has both elevated and underground tracks. The elevated section has 6 tracks that serve the JR Lines, and the underground section has 2 tracks that serve the Tokyo Metro subway line.


During the Edo period, Kanda had developed into an uptown area where nobles and rich businessmen lived. Later, as during the Great Kanto Earthquake and World War II, Kanto suffered losses and redeveloped, it lost much of its character. High rise office buildings replaced the residential areas.

Kanto was once one of 35 wards of Tokyo. When in 1947, Tokyo was reorganized into 23 wards, Kanto became a district within Chiyoda Ward. The district of Kanto today consists of thirty neighborhoods, each with a character of its own. Yasukuni Dori runs across the whole of Kanto, running through the different neighborhoods, including Ochanomizu, Jimbocho, and Akihabara. All the way through, one comes across many popular attractions, each worth spending time in.

Kanda is also an educational area with several universities and institutes located here. The university that lies closest to Kanda Station is Tokyo Denki University.
