Experience Location:
Historically, Nihonbashi (“Japan Bridge”) was the meeting place of the five major roads from Tokyo and it has enjoyed commercial prosperity as a result of the heavy traffic. In Nihonbashi, you can still find traditional shops that were founded in the Edo era, as well as historical landmarks that have survived rapid post-war urbanization and Westernization. Traditional Japanese sweets and snacks, as well as products like kimono and cut glass which showcase Japanese craftsmanship, are sold in Nihonbashi, alongside big department stores like Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi, Japan’s first department store.
