Sunamachi Ginza Shopping District 砂町銀座商店街

How to Get There

1 minute by foot from Kitasago-nichome to Sunamachi Ginza Shopping Street

Rub shoulders with the locals while sampling tasty street food

Filled with tempting smells and plenty of family-run businesses, this 670-meter long shopping street is a convivial spot to experience the less high tech side of Tokyo. Warm up with some of the piping hot pot called oden, or nibble on chicken skewers from the popular yakitori stall. Prices are wallet-friendly, as most snacks cost around 100 yen.

Besides food you will also find old-fashioned shops selling cute kitchenware, paper goods and other little treasures. Although a bit of a walk from Nishi-ojima Station, it is worth the trek to experience a slower, more local way of life in the city.
