A BUSINESS DISTRICT WITH A CULTURAL RESURGENCE
Once the centre of Tokyo and the point from which all distances in Japan are measured, Nihonbashi today is a bustling business district and home to the city's most historic department stores. But it also boasts some storied and acclaimed restaurants. Get the finest wagyu beef from Shima, feast on conger eel at Tamai, try oyakodon at the place where it was invented – Tamahide, experience kaiseki at Nihonbashi Yukari, or discover the Japanese interpretation of Western dishes at Taimeiken. For a more eclectic atmosphere head to Bakurocho, where the streets are lined with galleries, relaxed cafes, and small, creative shops including Volga Volga and Kumu.
