🍡👘⛩️ Nihonbashi: experience authentic Japanese traditions in the oldest district in Tokyo
Hi! I'm a city planner that gets to work on the most amazing city in the world: Tokyo! I guide architecture students and visiting professionals to discover the culture behind modern Tokyo by diving deep into its origins. Join for a unique tour full of history, culture, Japanese trains and bizarre vending machines!
"All roads lead to Nihonbashi"
The area of Nihonbashi gathers the headquarters of some of the most important corporations in Japan. But don't be deceived by the modern look of its tall skyscrapers. This area is the oldest part of the city and gathers a unique blend of modern and old architecture.
The walk will focus on experiencing the richness of Japanese culture by visiting old craft shops, hidden shrines, and the oldest landmarks in town. We will also eat traditional Japanese desserts in a 7th generation 150 years old maker!
Come for a history tour of the past, present, and future of the Nihonbashi area. Throughout the visit, we will see how the city has modernized while protecting its old traditions in a unique cultural blend.
