    This venerable department store is located in Nihonbashi, Chuo City, Tokyo. It got its start in the Edo Period as Echigoya, a dry goods store that became popular with the common people for its revolutionary business methods. In 1904, it became Japan's first department store. Comprised of the Main Building and the New Building, the store offers a wide range of high-quality items including fashion, household goods, books, jewelry, and more. It is also famous as the originator of kid's menus in Japan. The entrance to the main building features a lion statue that serves as the store's symbol.

    Japan’s oldest department store. Beside the multiple fashion brand, both local and international, the depachika food hall at the basement worth the visit.

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Nihombashihamachou 2-31-1
    Located just nearby the A2 exit of Hamacho Station, this is a playhouse that has been well-loved since it was established in 1873. Widely known as a hall for kabuki and shinpa (new drama), it is now host to a variety of performances including kayo concerts, contemporary drama, and musicals. The modern exterior of the Hamacho Center Building accommodates the internal appearance that retains the influence of Japanese-style architecture, and inside are a number of facilities such as a café, lounge, and long-established wagashi (Japanese sweets) shop that visitors can enjoy during the intermission. The Meijiza traditional taste of the Maku-no-uchi bento is the real pleasure of going to this theater.

    I really liked this show, especially its music. The whole show was a nice combination of some kabuki, dance, swordplay and some anime.

    A garden eel restaurant located near Nihombashi Station. Here diners can enjoy wild garden eel gathered from seasonal hunting grounds.
