Nihonbashi, Chuo

3.0
Developed around the bridge that has connected the two banks of Nihonbashi River for centuries, Nihonbashi serves a thriving financial and business district. Originally used as a marker for the distances to Tokyo, a bronze plaque on the bridge reminds visitors of a much simpler time when the city was a much smaller place. As old as the bridge, a local department store helps make this area a popular destination for shopping.

  • Good during the day, but Japan bridge in the night air. Look what the highway will not be. It is a different daytime and night almost no tourists, so in a quiet, relaxing moment.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
