Many drinking holes

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

Someone in the know told me to head a couple blocks from The Peninsula (where I was happily staying) and away from the Imperial Gardens toward the Ginza and the elevated train tracks. All I can say is thank you, thank you. It tuned out be delightful and in fact my favorite part of Tokyo! This is local food heaven.... More

dazzling selection of shops and eateries just under the rails. One station south of main Tokyo station. Walking distance from Tokyo station and station area hotels. Prices are reasonable.

We came in the afternoon and did not eat here but were glad to find this interesting place under the train track near Ginza. The alleys were packed with small restaurants and cafes, some bigger ones too on the bigger street outside with typical Japanese food as well as international. Do prior research. We saw an outlet of our favorite... More

Tucked away from the glitz and glamour of Ginza are the shops beneath the train tracks at Yurakucho. But my favourite part of Tokyo! If you are not into shopping and would like to try some street food/ yakitori/ izakaya, then this is the place to be. Head along the shops under the train tracks. Unless you know exactly what...

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

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.
