Things to do in Nihonbashi

Nihombashi has a long history. The name of the area comes from the Nihombashi Bridge that was built in 1603 in the Edo Period. It served as
an important starting road to other areas of Japan. Today, it is a financial district with the Bank of Japan headquarters and the Tokyo Stock Exchange, but there are traditional old department stores, restaurants, and other shops to be found as well.
The first Mitsukoshi and Takashimaya department stores were established here, and recently complexes such as COREDO Nihombashi and COREDO Muromachi are also appearing. Nihombashi is an area where traditional and modern shops exist side-by-side.
