Walk along the train tracks to find numerous small restaurants full of business people. We went into Andy's and were lucky to get a table. Having both retired from large corporations we enjoyed watching a large table of British and Japanese business people having dinner! Fish was fresh from Tsukiji - we tried the Sea Bream and Swordfish. Any vacated... More

We went there for dinner after reading about in online, it didn't disappoint. We had great yakitori in a medium sized itzakaya and loved the way the restaurants were packed under the tracks. The northwestern part is a bit more upscale.

Just next to the glitzy shopping temples of Ginza, under the train tracks of Yurakucho one can find what I guess old style Tokyo must have looked like. Turn into the lesser bright alley ways and marvel at the selection of restaurants and food stalls that time apparently forgot. There is still a lot of modern shopping, i.e. there is... More

You can actually walk from Tokyo Station to Yurakucho station...i did. It has lots of cheap but good restaurants/food stalls. Shopping at Ginza starts here in my opinion. Mo's Cafe (Mo's burger) is also just round the corner from the station.

Just along the train tracks of the station, you will never want for anything to eat, day or night. All around you will find wonderful shops (Loft, Muji, Tokyu Hands, Printemps, IOIO, Hankyu Men's, and many others). Spend a whole day here!

Under the JR Yurakucho train tracks are a long stretch of yakitori restaurants, ramen spots, and bars from the northern to southern sections of the tracks. On weekdays especially, it is a popular spot for salarymen after work before catching the train home as part of their everyday commute. Establishments are found on the outer side of the tracks facing... More

The whole area had an old japan feel to it, with interesting little shops and bars under the train tracks. Each ramen shop had a distinct personality (and specialty), which made for fun exploration.

I like this area. It's sort of like "old" Tokyo (Edo) because you see so many old style venues. The little (teeny) bars located directly under the train tracks are fun to try, and even if you don't speak Japanese you will be totally welcome and make many friends before the night is over.

Trains, busses and subways converge. The Time Square of Ginza District though there are more then one Time Squares in Tokyo. Lots of restaurants, movie theaters, shops and department stores. Close to Ginza.
