In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Filled with tempting smells and plenty of family-run businesses, this 670-meter long shopping street, Sunamachi Ginza Shopping District, is a convivial spot to experience Tokyo's less high tech side. 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 quaint shops selling cute kitchenware, paper goods and other little treasures. Although some distance from Nishi-ojima Station, it is worth the trek to experience a slower, more local way of life in the city.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
