Some amazing architecture... surprises in every building.

Wow, you can come here to shop or eat or just to look at the huge buildings - many of which are connected by underground passage to the subway stations. Truly amazing but easy to... read more

Maru-no-uchi means “inside the circle.” It is Tokyo’s CBD, located between the Imperial Palace and Tokyo Station. It used to be the residential district of feudal lords during the Edo Era.

Wow, you can come here to shop or eat or just to look at the huge buildings - many of which are connected by underground passage to the subway stations. Truly amazing but easy to get lost. I have had sushi in the Kitte Building as well as Teppanyaki in the Shin-marunouchi building. Both had great views and lots of... More

Want to do some shopping and enjoy a few nice meals away from the madness of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ginza? We highly recommend the Marunouchi district for those after a less frenzied experience of Tokyo. It's probably fair to say the retail and dining scene here is focused more on the elegantly attired working men and women (it is the... More

Many of us western travellers are used to things being on street level. Marunouchi is a great example of Tokyo's affinity for multitasking in their use of tall buildings: Yes, there will be SOME shops on the ground floor of the Shin-Maru and Maru building, but the shops go up to about the 7th floor, and there will also be...

On the west side of Tokyo station, Marunouchi has a number of nice clothing stores as well as many good eateries ranging from cheap to higher class with nice views. It also has a nice view of the newly renovated Tokyo Station building. After looking around Maunouchi I would recommend a walk down to Kokyo (a "fortress" that's now the... More

Walking the area gives one a good idea of what exists - shops of all high brand names, Many restaurants, executives from offices are seen in bars, Ginza is a fun place to be, MNCs re located and the area is busy.

Conveniently accessed from Tokyo station, this is a major shopping area. While we are not high end shoppers, we enjoy looking through the major department stores in Japan and sometimes eat in their restaurants or food courts or buy food to take back to our hotel. Both Daimaru and Takashimaya have stores here and there may be others that we... More

This is where the international conglomerate companies head quarter are located. You can't find any less expensive restaurant or stores here. Only high-end shops and restaurant.

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.
