If you come to Nihonbashi, it would be useful to visit the local tourist information center in B1 of Coredo 1 Bldg. opposite the majestic Mitsukoshi Department Store. They can give you special maps to find the traditional craft shops in the area. There are...More

Supposed to be an important landmark of Tokyo ie the very centre of Tokyo and Japan. No English signs. Nothing much to see except a marker on the road which you need to stand in the middle of the road to see.

Nihonbashi is an area with new shopping malls and also with old traditional restaurants. It is worthy for some walking and food hunting if you have some spare time other than just shopping in Ginza.

You can visit this bridge once in your life due to its symbol to Japan. Actually it is a very typical street view in downtown, but its historical symbol makes it famous. The highway goes on top of Nihone bashi (Japanese bridge) so it looks...More

Nihonbashi is today shops, restaurants, office buildings, a very pleasant walk from through the Ginza starting from the 4-chome crossing. The bridge was once the starting point for travellers to Kyoto during the Edo Period. Sadly it is nearly an eyesore today due to the...More

Full of history, this charming place tells a lot of the Japanese culture along the time. Expensive shops and a high class atmosphere.

Central, Historic neighbourhood with many fine shops. More of a business district (Tokyo Stock Exchange is near) however it's a neighbourhood with a less frenetic vibe than Ginza or Roppongi (both short cabs away). Many fine hotels and restos in the neighbourhood. Short run to...More

Typical downtown area of Tokyo city. Lots of bright lights and flashing signs, people everywhere and so many places to eat drink and just watch the city go about its hectic days and evenings

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
