On the Southern side of 筋違橋 Sujikaibashi was the 筋違橋御門 Sujikaimon gate and nearby the Yatsukoji district.

This has even become a stamp:



This print shows the Hirokoji leading from 筋違橋御門前 to 外堀(神田川) the Sotobori of the Kanda river. In the front is part of 筋違橋御門の櫓 the watch tower and in the far back part of 神田神社 Kanda Jinja.
It is at the beginning of the 中山道 Nakasendo along the Sotobori. Nearby is 昌平橋 Shoheibashi. Crossing the river leads to a road to Ueno, for the Shogun to visit 上野寛永寺 the graves at Kanei-Ji.
Since eight small roads come together here, the name was given to this district.

In the front is a 大名行列 Daimyo Gyoretsu, procession of a lord and his samurai warriors.

Edo Tokyo Hakubutsukan 江戸東京博物館 Edo-Tokyo Museum 
a museum of the history of Tokyo during the Edo period.
The Metropolitan Edo-Tokyo Museum opened its doors in March 1993 as a space to reflect on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo and envision the city and life of the future. Housed in a unique building modeled after an elevated-floor type warehouse, the museum has been a landmark and popular tourist attraction in Tokyo since its opening.
The permanent exhibition,
showcasing original objects and replicas, offers visitors a journey through the 400-year history of Edo-Tokyo since Tokugawa Ieyasu entered Edo. In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum holds special exhibitions at the first floor gallery five to six times a year and carries out various other events, including lectures and workshops on the history and culture of Edo-Tokyo.
