The Nihonbashi area was one of the most illustrated landmarks in the Edo era, and it is not hard to imagine why. A bustling commercial district where top craftsmen and enterprising merchants lived, worked and played, there was never a dull moment against the backdrop of the original Nihonbashi bridge – then a wooden bridge called Edobashi.
Today, the district retains a class and dignity unlike other commercial areas such as Shinjuku or Shibuya, that have taken on totally new facades through the decades. Here, a community of classic shops remain where they started generations ago and their history is counted by the centuries.
WAttention invites you to come and discover Nihonbashi, your link to the good ol’ days of Tokyo.
