During the Edo period, Nihonbashi was the starting point of the Five Roads that connected Tokyo with other areas, a place where a fish market was held, and a town of merchants. Many long-established stores still exist. Let's explore authentic Japanese souvenirs in Nihonbashi. Also, enjoy eating around Ningyocho, which is a performing arts town along with Asakusa and has many long-established gourmet restaurants.

Tokyo

You want to experience Izakaya like locals? Are you a little reluctant to drink in Shinjuku Kabukicho or the youth town of Shibuya? If so, I recommend Ginza, Yurakucho area! The area has some different profiles. There are deep izakaya alleys underneath the JR railways that retain a postwar atmosphere and also high-end streets where the district became first westernized after the Edo period. You can enjoy 2 very different types of drinking spots while touching about the history.
