We enjoyed staying here, next to Tokyo station at Four Seasons Hotel. Great area with many things to see and do. Lots of restaurants of course and also felt very safe. Clean and tidy too.

Full of businessmen and women. With the occasional boutiques (comme de garcons, etc.). Very near Yurakucho station which is lined with many restaurants and many shops close by.

Although Marunouchi is often thought of as the prime business area of Tokyo, it is also a great area for visitors. The streets are wide compared to the rest of Tokyo. There are stunning modern buildings here, like the Tokyo International Forum building and the recently refurbished post office building (Art Deco). In the midst of it all you have... More

Situated between the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Station, Marunouchi gets overlooked a bit but if you love beautiful buildings with elegant shopping and wonderful restaurants, Marunouchi will be worth your time

We stayed at Ginza during our last trip to Japan, which meant we were already surrounded by glitzy, fashionable shops. Marunouchi's shops are in the same class, but the boutiques themselves have a much more posh feel -fewer tourists too (compared to Ginza), which makes it more conducive for shopping.

A nice area to wander around - in essence a posh office area in Tokyo. It has a Dean & Deluca and other western shops and restaurants and probably doesn't give the bonkers feel of the Ginza district.

Directly across from the Tokyo Central Railroad Station, slight to the left, in Maunouchi, lies the Kitte Building, where you will find 28 different restaurants, by my count - all of them reasonably priced, as far as I could tell. Mostly Japanese of different styles, with a sprinkling of European restaurants. We tried Da Bocciano! Pizzeria e Trattoria. Several different... More

We went on a guided tour of the Marunouchi area organised by the SEEK information centre and it was fantastic. The guides were knowledgeable and pointed out famous or significant buildings in the area. There were floral displays and statues a plenty down many of the streets and we found out many impressive things about Marunouchi, such as the area... More

This area is adjacent to the Imperial garden and grounds and encompasses Tokyo Station. It is quite nondescript in character but functions as a central hub. Don't linger here, but you will certainly pass through it when exploring Tokyo.
