Someone in the know told me to head a couple blocks from The Peninsula (where I was happily staying) and away from the Imperial Gardens toward the Ginza and the elevated train tracks.

dazzling selection of shops and eateries just under the rails. One station south of main Tokyo station. Walking distance from Tokyo station and station area hotels. Prices are reasonable.

We came in the afternoon and did not eat here but were glad to find this interesting place under the train track near Ginza. The alleys were packed with small restaurants and cafes, some bigger ones too on the bigger street outside with typical Japanese food as well as international. Do prior research. We saw an outlet of our favorite... More

Tucked away from the glitz and glamour of Ginza are the shops beneath the train tracks at Yurakucho. But my favourite part of Tokyo! If you are not into shopping and would like to try some street food/ yakitori/ izakaya, then this is the place to be. Head along the shops under the train tracks. Unless you know exactly what...

Kind of rundown, easy to get lost, bustling and lots of noise. Be sure to try one of the izakayas underneath the tracks. If you walk further along, you will reach Tokyo or Ginza where huge buildings and shops line the streets. Feels like a scene out of an old school movie like Bladerunner. Great experience.

Tucked just under the metro railway, we found lots of authentic restaurants. Lots of small, traditional food or other various choices. Cute neighborhood.

It took me about 40 minutes of doing circles to find this place! if it wasn't for lucking out and running into an english speaking worker, I may never have found it.

If you want to visit Ginza you can walk from Marunochi or get off the train at Yurakucho. There are a number of cheap eats here also a very good shopping area.

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.
