【No.2】 What is "Bando"?

Rekishi blog No.2

by Yumeka Saito

In the previous blog, we figured out that “Bando” means “Kanto”.

Today, I would like to tell you about the meaning of the word.

“Bando” is written as “坂東” in Japanese. If you see the kanji separately, it means “Slope(坂) East(東)”.

You might wonder why “Slope”. There is a reason.
