Ningyocho / Monzen-Nakacho / Kasai,Tokyo
A stock exchange that offers tours. It is a symbol of Japanese economy where an estimated 61,000 people visit annually.
The tour of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the heart of Japanese economy, is open from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm on weekdays (the last admission is at 4:00 pm). It has a magnificent appearance suitable for the center of Japanese economy, and when you enter from the West entrance where there is a doorway for visitors, you will be welcomed by the entrance with high ceilings. After the admission, as you go upstairs onto the 2nd floor, the market center which is familiar from economy news will pop into your sight. Camera flashes are prohibited, but you are allowed to take photographs inside of the building. We definitely recommend the stock trading simulation game which can be booked in advance if you are a group of three or more people. The TSE History Museum on the first floor displays items such as precious vintage stock certificates issued before the War. This is the only facility that exhibits so many stock certificates in Japan. It is a five-minute walk from Exit 11 of Kayabacho Station, and can be accessed from other stations.
