The stop off the Yamanote Line to get to Ginza

If you want to visit Ginza you can walk from Marunochi or get off the train at Yurakucho. There are a number of cheap eats here also a very good shopping area.

If you want to get to Ginza and are on the Yamanote Line...this is your stop. Changing trains/lines just to get one stop further is crazy. This area has tons of little places where you can grab a bite if you are hungry but mostly I just head towards Printemps where you will find a Tokyu Hands (which I love).... More

I like to visit small local restaurants in this area, it is always full of night-life along the railway line, all the way down to Simbashi.

It's hard to explain exactly what to "do" if you go to Yurakucho. Probably try to find a bar or izakaya built into the JR train tracks as you head south. Or wander east towards ginza. Or west toward Hibiya park. Yurakucho is the guts that holds central Tokyo together. A much more inviting area surrounding this station than neighbouring... More

Yurakucho is a train station that is surrounded by a huge number of restaurants, both international as well as local food. Many of the restaurants are underneath the railway arches - these are very small and many do not have English menus. However, you can eat like locals here, and they are not offended if you point at their food... More

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.

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.
