Nihonbashi is a town where traditional Japanese and modern cultures are woven together, where you can experience the charms of Japan.
The town of Nihonbashi was established at the same time as the Edo Shogunate in 1603 and served as the heart of Edo (Tokyo) during the Edo period (1603-1868). Being the starting point of the Edo Five Routes established by the Edo Shogunate (Tokaido, Nakasendo, Koshu Kaido, Nikko Kaido and Oshu Kaido), it became a hub for people and products from all over the country and developed into a center of commerce, the economy and entertainment. Today, it has grown into an elegant town that has fused the traditional and modern aspects of Tokyo by adopting new facilities and cultures while retaining the good old Edo feel. One of the newcomers is COREDO Muromachi 1, renewed in 2014. There is a tourist information desk on the first floor below-ground, where concierges fluent in English will help you enjoy the town with information on time-honored shops and events about town. One way to appreciate Nihonbashi is from the water. You can board a cruise boat from Nihonbashi Boarding Dock and enjoy a view that can only be seen from the canals and rivers of Tokyo. Nihonbashi is within walking distance from many railway and subway stations such as Tokyo Station, Kanda Station, Nihombashi Station on the Tokyo Metro Tozai and Hanzomon lines, and Mitsukoshimae Station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
