With around 100 shops selling goods and services in the Ningyocho and Nihonbashi area, their origins spanning over 100 years, whiffs of the Edo era can still be experienced when walking along the streets.
Aside from longstanding shops, Ningyocho is full of local establishments. Whichever you choose to drop in, you will be wowed by the exquisite taste and warm hospitality.
On the other hand, Nihonbashi is home to old Japan’s commerce. Here you can Japan’s first department store – Nihombashi Mitsukoshi Main store – and the grand old bridge after which the area is named. New developments such as COREDO Muromachi and its cinemas and late night dining options have also given Nihonbashi a new lease of life at night.
