Shimbashi Restaurant Guide

Shimbashi is full of many businessmen and women on the go.Its name was derived from the Tokaido highway's "Shimbashi (New Bridge)" that spanned the Shidome river.An old C11 steam engine is preserved on display in SL Plaza outside JR Shimbashi station, which is a popular location for news broadcasts and TV interviews. Outside the Karasumori exit are many pubs and snack bars where businessmen can rest and relax.Karasumori shrine sits quietly between the modern buildings, one of the few shrines dedicated to the goddess of the arts, Ame-no-Uzume, praying here is said to confer blessings in artistic pursuits. "Koichi-kun" a raven mascot that brings luck with love and friendship as well as the colorful prayer slips on sale make this a shrine with an easygoing and playful atmosphere.The Shimbashi theater was constructed here in 1925 (Taisho 14) to give the talented "Geisha Girls of Shimbashi" their place to shine. The red light district in Shimbashi, "Higashi Odori", still holds public performances every spring and autumn, inspiring seasonal poetry. In recent years with the Kabuki theater under construction there was a small standing performance area for kabuki as well.
