Nihombashi Restaurant Guide

Nihonbashi is in Tokyo's Chuo Ward.It is one of Japan's major financial centers with the Bank of Japan and Tokyo Stock Exchange.By the mid-Edo Period, Edo became a large city with a population of 1 million, larger than Paris and London.Nihonbashi, an economic and cultural center, flourished - extravagant department stores like "Mitsui Echigo Dry Goods Store (the modern Mitsukoshi)" and "Shirokiya (the modern Tokkyu)" lined its streets. The Mitsui zaibatsu was central to Nihonbashi's development and their headquarters, the modern Mitsui main building, were built here on the site of the old Echigo store in 1929 (Showa 4). It was constructed in the Neo-Classical style using Venetian marble, and this stately building is now a national cultural property. In recent years the Nihonbashi Mitsui flashship store, as well as other aging department stores, wholesalers, and business district, were redeveloped into modern high-rise buildings in the 2000s. In 2004 the trading center COREDO Nihonbashi also opened in the district. Though its glory eventually waned, this area, like the Ginza, retains the gravity of another age.
