Tokyo/Nihonbashi/Ginza

Tokyo ( Marunouchi / Yaesu )


The surrounding areas of Tokyo station is the center of Japan and can be divided into the Marunouchi area and Yaesu area across the station.

Marunouchi was originally a residential site for Shinpan and Fudai Daimyos who were lords that were relatives of the Tokugawa family. Currently it serves as Japan’s center of politics, economics and international business. There are a lot of Head Offices of various companies, sophisticated commercial facilities and restaurants. In addition, it takes only 15 minutes’ walk from Marunouchi to the Imperial Palace.

On the other hand, Yaesu has not only a business area but a downtown distinct with Karaokes and electrical appliance stores. The Gran Roof, which is a shopping mall designed in the motif of a light sail completed in 2013, is popular among people as a new landmark.

Nihonbashi

Nihonbashi first emerged in the 17th century, the same era when the first shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu established the Edo shogunate and improved the waterways where Nihonbashi served as a key bridge. It became Japan's main avenues of transportation and acted as the starting point for Japan's five Gokaido roads. The Nihonbashi area has been truly the center of commerce, financial markets, and business. There are still many historical buildings and traditional shops that boast an over 100-years history
