It sists between Matunouchi and Ginza and can be a little tacky particularly around the Yamanote line station. It is however an interesting place and there are some great places to eat and shop nearby.

Yurakucho is a gateway to the Ginza in one direction, and Marounuchi and the Imperial Palace, Hibiya Park in the other station. There is a great fashion street here that takes you to Tokyo Station. BIC's camera is right at Yurakucho Station. For shopping, well worth a stop.

The place is quite and shut in the day time, however in the evenings, it goes totallly insane. Lights, music, wafting aromas from the various kitchens, its just fantastic. Built under a railway bridge, it has a very characteristic image all across, with very small and private restaurants lined up one after the other. Go wild and hop from one... More

Interesting place next to Ginza that has many small drinking holes to enjoy a drink with friends. Under the JR train line has many interesting places.

Yurakucho is a small and it's located not far from Ginza. There are much traditional bars and restaurants (izakaya), but also many nice and expensive shops.

If you want to know where the locals eat and hang out after office hours, check out the Izakaya bars for yakitori food. This place is base near the train station of Yurachuko. Love the local ambience.

Yurakucho gives the best at night. Ideally coming from Shimbashi along the JR line arches you'll find a lot of elegant and very europen style places, until, through a narrow passage you access the bustling subway passage full with small Izakayas and people relaxing, chatting, eating and having a good time.

Although a short distance from Ginza, it is not as glamorous as Ginza. Get to enjoy the night lifestyle of Japanese.. Izakaya, yakitori, beer, hearing and feeling the tremor every time the trains pass by. Unfortuantely the yakitori that i had tried wasn't the best :(

I was at the JR Shinagawa station wanting to get to the Ginza district. I looked at a map on the wall and saw that the Yurakucho station was probably the closest to Ginza. I bought my160 Yen ticket and went to platform 1 -- I was at Yurakucho in about 12 minutes. The area is clean and easy to... More

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.
