Visit this shopper’s paradise and peruse high-end department stores and boutiques, dine at fancy restaurants, sip coffee at cafes, admire art galleries, and dance the night away at night clubs. For a more down to Earth shopping experience, hop over to Nihonbashi and visit Amazake Yokocho. This small shopping strip exudes an old-time atmosphere with its collection of traditional Japanese snack vendors, restaurants, and quaint boutiques.
Interested in more shopping? Check out the Tsukiji area, formerly one of Japan’s largest fish markets before operations were moved to Toyosu! It's just a few steps away from the Sumida River, which is a wonderful place to unwind with a waterside stroll. Across from Sumida River is the waterfront neighborhood, Tsukishima, which is known for its monja-yaki, a local delicacy similar to okonomiyaki.
Despite Chuo’s modernization and high-class presence, it also maintains its history and traditions. Take a break from materialism and take a walk through Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple, relax in the traditional Japanese gardens of Hamarikyu Gardens, and appreciate the Edo period style of Nihonbashi bridge. For a more lively cultural experience, visit the Kabuki-za kabuki theater and enjoy a traditional performance.
