Things to see in Nihonbashi

While the streets of Nihonbashi are lined with skyscrapers, first and foremost, visitors to this neighborhood should head to the small bridge for which the neighborhood was named. Originally built with wood, this spot was once a hotspot for artists to meet and now the newer stone bridge serves as kilometer-zero for all of Japan’s highways. An afternoon visit to the Mitsui Museum is recommended. Although located in a very Western-style building, the museum displays beautiful, delicate artworks from Japan and around Asia. The museum has only been open since 2005 but its art has been collected over a period of over three centuries by the Mitsui family. Finally, if you’re looking for some peace and quiet, then head to what is perhaps the safest place in Tokyo, the Kuami Shrine. Once home to monk Eshin Sōzu, this shrine stood strong through World War II and provided shelter to many during Tokyo’s 1923 earthquake.

Good for shoppers

If you love shopping, then Nihonbashi is definitely the best neighborhood to visit in Tokyo. As well as a fine selection of brands known internationally, the Nihonbashi neighborhood boasts stores offering traditional Japanese products, including folding fans and traditional fish cakes—a delicacy not to be missed. Meanwhile, the Coredo Muromachi shopping center which opened back in 2009, houses quality restaurants, cafés, and shops. And if all of that shopping makes you hungry, head to the second floor of the Mitsui Tower to visit the long-standing fruit store, Sembikiya Sohoten, for a snack.
