Located in the center of Nihonbashi, COREDO – referring to the “core of Edo” – is a modern shopping complex with traditional and modern Japanese products and services that convey the essence of Japan.

Today, all the traditional manufacturers and brands are brought under one roof and given a modern touch at COREDO in Nihonbashi.
