Useful at least!

The road is super large and very clean just like 99% of Tokyo roads. There are a lot of different shops and restaurants

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 Imperial Palace Gardens. Several museums in the neighbourhood as-well.

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

Nihombashi (Japan Bridge) was the centre of Edo/Tokyo in the past and there is a brass plate in the centre of the road on the old bridge, which was the starting point for all road measurements throughout the country. Unfortunately traffic forbids close inspection! The Bridge has attractive statuary on either side, but is now overshadowed by an elevated expressway... More

Nihonbashi..... Nihon means Japan in Japanese and Bashi means bridge. So nihonbashi means a popular bridge in Tokyo area. There's nothing really special about it, other than the fact that it's happens to be situated in the heart of Tokyo. It's right outside Tokyo railway station. It has wide roads, convenience stores, offices of reputed corporations of Japan. It will... More

My first visit was 20 yrs ago. I paid another visit because it's on the way to Mitsukoshi and Takashimaya dept. store . The site had made some changes with building a lift to get down to the riverside and floating pier. . Now the water taxi provided a stop at the site . It maybe the the first Japanese... More

A colleague recommended that we visit this as it is a great contrast to places such as Ginza and Shibuya. While they are a few Metro stops apart on the same line, this place is more genteel, without the teeming masses of locals and tourists that you find elsewhere. There are delightful old world charms and shops selling traditional kimonos,... More

I don't know whether or not it's because when I first stayed in Tokyo, I stayed in this area, I have special feelings about this area. The Nihombashi area overall is quieter than its other places such as Ginza, Ikebukuro, or Shinjuku. We went to this area for dinner. When we came out, it was night fall. Beautiful nightfall lights...

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.
