What does ''Ishikawabashi'' mean? 2008/7/3 12:59
Nagoya
Mom and Dad (American) lived in the Ishikawabashi prefecture of Nagoya Japan 1955-1960. Was does this name mean? Where can I find an English street map of Nagoya (on internet)? I have photos of their Japanese house which was across the street from a temple. Mom is 85 and failing. She loved Japan, and we spend a lot of time lately talking about all things Japanese lately: wonderful memories and stories. Any help would be fun to share with her!

Ishikawabashi seems to be a name of an "area" within Nagoya City, Aichi Prefecture in Japan.

If you take apart the name "Ishikawabashi," "ishi" = stone/rock, "kawa" = river, and "bashi (hashi)" = bridge. There actually is a bridge by this name... and the name is also used to refer the area around it as well.

A temple known in the area seems to be this one:

I've grown up in Nagoya and Ishikawabashi is a familiar name to me. As mentioned in the previous post, it is the name of a bridge over Yamazaki river, which is known for cherry blossom. I'll post some sites with pictures of the Yamazaki river :)
