Marunouchi sits between the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Stations and is a Mitsubishi area with many office buildings and a number of upscale shopping areas. Walk the main street for some classy restaurants and shops. Access is via Tokyo Station.

Marunouchi gives you a good feeling of the effervescent power of Japan, with its towering office buildings, quiet fashion streets, the Imperial Palace, more. Get off at Yurakucho Station on the JR Line. In one direction is the Ginza, in the other, towards the Imperial Palace, is Marunouchi. There is a fashion street running basically parallel to the JR Line... More

This was by far, the nicest area in Tokyo with its upscale shopping and restaurant zone. The atmosphere was cool and neat.

The gleaming buildings of the inner area of the palace moat always impress. Also note the gems like the revamped Tokyo Station building and The Central Post Office called Kitte. Many of the skyscrapers are linked by underpasses with a treasure trove of boutiques, cafes and restaurants.

I went to Tokyo on business in May and September 2016. Marunouchi is a business district located near Tokyo Station and several of my business meetings were in Marunouchi. Marunouchi also has a lot of stores and restaurants. The twin towers of the Marunouchi Building and Shin Marunouchi Building are the start of Marunouchi. I would begin here. Both buildings... More

I had the fortune of staying at the Shangri-La in this area and went for extensive walks. The area is wonderful for restaurants, totally safe to walk around and the station in this area is a wonderful find of shops and gourmet grocery stores which I explored with great glee!

There are many popular shops and restaurants in Marunouhi but for those not interested in spending moey, also quite a few things can be found just walking around this area, historic buildings such as Tokyo Station, Wadakura Bridge, as well as parks around Imperial Palace

This is the place to shop if you are looking for anything for kids with a logo or theme from Japan's famous characters. The prices are not cheap and gifts are more for younger kids. There are many shops, each for a special theme.

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighbourhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
