I loved this district,once stepped in reminds me of savvy business district. Buildings are very sophisticated and high rise. Weather was very good that day so everything's feels great. If you want to see another side of Tokyo, this is the place to go.

A snooty, upper-class neighbourhood with a vibe that is as annoying and pretentious as it is wealthy. Had to walk through this area (and past the judgy stares of the people here) to get to the East Gardens of the Imperial Palace from Tokyo Station. Nothing to see or do here, even if you do have money to burn it's... More

Le Connoisseur gentlemen's bar is the perfect place to unwind with a fine whisky and cigar after a hard day's business in Tokyo. d'Adam menu simplistic. All in all Marunouchi is an excellent hotel

Marunouchi is improving as time goes by. It used to be a clutter of tall buildings and offices but it is now a hub for classy shops and restaurants and they have improved the street scape with new paving and trees.

Thanks to the many high-rise office buildings full of professionals the neighbourhood sports innumerable small restaurants (always on the lower level) as wel as some western style - side walk - restaurants if you need a break from the Japanese fare. Shops are definitely up market with the most expensive (western) brands so if you really want to buy your... More

During the day, Marunouchi is a really busy place. The neighbourhood is a high-powered business district with dozens of glossy skyscrapers on show. It’s establishment Tokyo at its finest, with museums and architectural masterpieces, but also restaurants, bars and shops for the office workers who hold it all together. » The night, people are out chilling, have drinks or eating outside....

Although Marunouchi is the business center of Tokyo, it's a good place to enjoy shopping, either. You can enjoy walking around the street, and sit and relax at the cafe. You feel as if you were in the street of London! I felt like that in Marunouchi! Whenever I visit here, I drop by one of the famous bookstores and... More

As with most Central Business Districts around the world, this is no different with lots of banks and upmarket shopping streets stocking luxury good brands. I spent a few hours walking by this area and I had a wonderful lunch at Tenmatsu in Marunouchi.

Marunouchi is a beautiful and recently developed area of Tokyo near the Palace and Tokyo Station. There's a treasure trove of restaurants in the Marunouchi buildings that you could spend a lifetime exploring. The shopping though, is very much high end international corporate mall and pretty predictable. You can find the same shops in many parts of the city.

The Marunouchi area, sandwiched between the Imperial Palace and historic Tokyo Station, is a great place to kill a couple hours shopping for Japanese craft goods and relaxing over a meal or a beverage. The main boulevard is great for a stroll, and the Marunouchi Building and Kitte Building have loads of higher end shops. The Kitte Building observatory has... More
