The area
Neighbourhood: Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.

Yurakucho sits between the Ginza and Hibiya Park and south east of the Imperial Palace. Its name dates back to 16th century and where Oda Nagamasu (also known as Urakusai who had a big house here) did his thing as a samurai or something similar. The name was a derivation of Urakusai .Yurakucho has glitz and glamor with Ginza to one side, Marunouchi the other but also has some tacky features with pachinko parlors and many bars and some other places not so glamorous.It also has a busy train station both above and below ground, Grreat place to visit and go to other interesting places nearby.

Yurakucho is the gateway to many places in Tokyo, the Ginza, Imperial Palace and one of the most elegant shopping areas in Tokyo, on a quiet street that runs parallel towards Tokyo Station and is the locale of the Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan, Paul Smith's, many others. Trendy, chic

Yurakucho is a bustling gateway to the Ginza hi-end shopping district on one side and the Imperial Palace on the other side. It features a cluster of nice restaurants and movie theaters, a short walk to the magnificent Hibiya Building as well as the Imperial Hotel. There is a lovely shopping street running parallel to Yurakucho Station and the Yamatane line that circles Tokyo. It proceed north towards Tokyo Station. The Foreign Correspondents Club of Japan is also located there.

This area is on the edge of Ginza and has many restaurants outside of the train station, from cafe to yakiniku, Chinese to local Japanese. The JR train can take you anywhere within Japan. It’s a good idea to base yourself around Yurakucho when you are visiting Tokyo.

The JR station and area if you take the green circle line and need to get to ginza. It's the less glitzy neighbourhood next to ginza proper

We were returning to our hotel in Shinagawa after touring Ginza and stopping by the Tokyu Hands store. We were thankful to find this ramen restaurant open near the Yamanote Yurakucho train station at 430 pm. We ordered our food and beverage (miso ramen 980yen and medium beer 500yen) using the vending machine near the entrance. The noodles were thick and firm; the soup base was thick and flavorful. The portion was quite quite generous. Likewise the gyozas (6 pieces) was tasty and juicy. We enjoyed this meal.

We visited in October 2017, with high hopes of finding a multitude of small restaurants and izakays to choose from. Reality was a little different, with maybe a dozen or so places spread out over a 5 minute walk.

Still, we found a great place and got a seat for 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) after a short wait.

A good experience.

Expect to rub shoulders (literally) with people seated next to you! It's hot and sweaty here. But the food is supposed to be the best of local food- yakitori and beer and much more. These are a bunch of small restaurants built under the train tracks. A short walk from Ginza, you'll get as much local feel as you wish in this popular haunt for post work drinks and dinner. The menus will be in Japanese with little understanding of English among staff, so best to know your stuff before hand. The imagery will help though:) enjoy!

This station is located pretty much between the Ginza and the Marounochi - both fabulous shopping areas. Bic Camera is also located directly outside of the station. Aside from great access to shopping, there are lots of fun small restaurants located directly under the railroad tracks - well worth a visit.
