(Hemp Cloth #10)
This is a weird one.
The kanji can also be read as Mafu or Asanuno. The first kanji means “hemp, cannabis sativa.” One would guess the area was famous for hemp production, but to the best of my knowledge the area was famous for its horse market in the Edo Period. The area was home to the largest horse market in Japan. The Azabu area is divided into Moto-Azabu (Old Azabu), Nishi-Azabu (West Azabu), Higashi-Azabu (East) and Azabu Juban (Azabu #10), etc.
The legend goes that the 10th construction team of a number of teams working on bridges and sewage were stationed there. The name of their banner 十番 (#10) stuck.
In the Edo Period the Sendai domain had a residence that stretched from the present Korean Embassy to Ni no Hashi. The Jūban Onari Shrine has been here since the 700’s.
The first American Embassy was located at Zenpukuji.
Kiyokawa Hachiro was killed at Ichi-no-hashi.
Henry Heusken was killed at Naka-no-hashi.
Stay away from those “hashi” (bridges).
Learn about Mita, which is right next to Azabu-Juban.

You pissed on the grave of a dead guy????
he’s dead. wtf can he do about it?
What a fucking twat you are.
You’re pretending to be Henry Heusken. I’m not pretending to be anyone.
Pretty sure your twattery outranks mine.
I doubt that re: your comment about twattery, if that’s even a word. I haven’t pissed on the grave of a murdered man.
I hope sometimes pisses on you not only in this life but also in the he’ll you’re certainly headed to, you cunt.
Really? That’s all you got?
There’s no such thing as hell (which I think you were trying to say when you wrote “he’ll”).
Also, it’s “someone” not “sometimes.” English, you should learn it.
Just out of curiousity, what was the reason for pissing on Henry Heusken’s grave? I don’t know much about his background, other than what I read on Wikipedia…
