Walking distance from the Peninsula Hotel, it was very easy to stroll the beautiful, wide tree-lined streets. Lots of boutiques and dining establishments...Felt like Paris, or New York, with a high-level of chic-ness!

If you're into modern architecture I suggest taking a stroll around Marunouchi Tokyos financial district. It is super clean and right next to the imperial gardens so you get to see the best of modern architecture and ancient gardens in a small space

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.

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.
