What you should know about Yurakucho

Squeezed between the epic grandeur of the Imperial Palace and the architectural fancies of Marunouchi's skyscrapers, Yurakucho still holds onto an authentic slice of down-to-earth Tokyo. Underneath its brick-and-girder railway arches you'll discover tiny old-time Tokyo eateries, offering delicious food without any fuss. This side of Yurakucho is a byword for a relaxed, laid-back attitude. But there's a contemporary buzz here too, Yurakucho has ground-breaking architecture of its own, dynamic new shopping malls, and some first-class international dining options.

Hotels in Yurakucho

Given that it's surrounded by some of the most upscale districts in Tokyo, it's no surprise that accommodation in Yurakucho is both luxurious and exclusive. The most opulent hotel is also its most prominent—the Peninsula Hotel. An elegant tower on the corner facing the Inner Moat, step inside this five-star hotel in Yurakucho and you'll enjoy its stunning contemporary decor, heated indoor pool and unparalleled views into the grounds of the Imperial Palace.

Things to see in Yurakucho

A stay in Yurakucho provides a unique chance to see two sides to this fascinating city. Much of central Tokyo draws the eye upwards, but the Yurakucho invites you downwards, to the bustling food scene under its railway arches. Here you'll be able to sample the delights of the famed Gado-shita ("below the girder") restaurants. These stretch along several hundred yards of the Yamanote railway line, with genuine izakaya and yakitori (bar and grill joints) being prominent among them. Finer dining options are found nearer modernized Yurakucho station itself, where the refined, stylish face of contemporary Tokyo reasserts itself. The glass-and-steel wonder of the Tokyo International Forum is the finest example, hosting conventions, concerts, and an array of first-class retail opportunities. A different sort of architectural treat is the DN Tower 2, a graceful 1930s-style building that was once home to U.S. General Douglas MacArthur after the war.

Good for the well-heeled

With the chance for exclusive shopping, superb dining, and high-class luxury hotels in Yurakucho, this area makes for an ideal setting for an extravagant city break in Tokyo. The Imperial Palace, with its world-class museums and cultural attractions, lies just across the Inner Moat. Exclusive shopping opportunities in neighboring Ginza are only a few steps away. And exquisite cuisine awaits in the plazas near the station, as well as in the burgeoning dining scene of Marunouchi. It all makes for a perfect combination for those wanting to enjoy the finer things in Tokyo, while still experiencing the best of its diverse character.
