Lonely Planet Tokyo - Marunouchi & Nihombashi (PDF Chapter)

Tokyo - Marunouchi & Nihombashi

Tokyo’s geographical centre is the Imperial Palace, home of Japan’s emperor. Nearby, Marunouchi has blossomed with new and revamped buildings. Tree-lined Naka-dōri has morphed into one of Tokyo’s most pleasant thoroughfares. Also having undergone a recent architectural facelift is Nihombashi.

- stroll through the manicured gardens at the Imperial Palace - once only for the emperor and his family - and climb the base of the keep that was at the centre of Edo Castle.

- be blown away by the beautiful displays at the fascinating Intermediatheque, crafted from the eclectic collection of Tokyo University.

- gaze up at the vast atrium at the Tokyo International Forum, which also hosts a great antiques market twice a month.

Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Sports & Activities.
