Feel the atmosphere of the real salaryman haunt. Head out on the Hibiya Exit side of the station and follow the train line south (keep the line on your left hand side). Under the train line are a number of hole in the wall bar style dining places which look like they have been in existance since the dawn of... More

It does not have the glitz of Ginza although it is next door and it has many small restaurants of every type around. There are a variety of shops around and it is an interesting place to walk the streets and take in the atmosphere. Visit the Bic electronic store for anything electrical and electronic and of course go to... More

If you are looking for cheap food stands with a side of very interesting culture this is the place. I came with the intention of trying some food, however nothing appealed to me. Can't rate any particular food stand but I would not come back to look for food.

Love Yurakucho - tons of restaurants and shopping. I especially enjoy the O1O1 department store. Fantastic dining with many different types of cuisine in bottom level. Great accessories shops on main level (passage minion is my favorite). JR line runs right there, great place to wander around. Easy walk to Ginza or even Tokyo Station.

The Hokkaido milk soft serve ice cream is to die for! You can find it in the Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza, just before crossing over to the Yurakucho station. This Hokkaido prefecture store has just about everything in Hokkaido such as cookies, milk, etc., so you will not have to trek all the way to Sapporo for those. They have lots... More

Where else in the world could you wander around, at night, UNDER the elevated railroad tracks in a seemingly sketchy underworld, yet be totally safe and have a plethora of microscopic, atmospheric yakitori joints to choose from? Nowhere else other than Tokyo! Hop off the JR Yamanote Circular Line at Yurakucho Station, drop down UNDER the railroad tracks and start... More

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.

Neighborhood 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.
