There is a great selection of Japanese restaurants in Nihonbashi, many of which serve washuko, which is a set meal of rice, miso soup and a few other dishes. There are not a lot of international restaurants in the area apart from at some of the more upmarket hotels, like The Tokyo Station Hotel. There are some Japanese-style bars in the area as well as British and Irish pubs, like the one at the Royal Park Hotel, but those visitors that want more drinking options should take the metro or a taxi to neighbouring Ginza.Shopping
International department store Mitsukoshi’s main flagship sits in the heart of Nihonbashi. There are also plenty of traditional crafts shops in the area, as well as other flashy department stores like Takashimaya.
