Nihonbashi

Nihonbashi is a bridge and an area of Chūō in central Tōkyō. The bridge is said to have been built in 1603 at the order of Tokugawa Ieyasu. The next year, it was made the starting point of the Gokaido, or five major roads and became the symbol of the prosperous city of Edo, the centre of Japan. The current twin arch bridge made of stone was completed in 1911. The kirin statue under the bridge light in the centre of the bridge depicts the prosperity of the city of Tōkyō when it was made, and the shishi statues at the four corners depict protection. The Nihonbashi was designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan.

The area is a commercial quarter named after the bridge. The imposing Mitsukoshi Nihonbashi department store has been serving shoppers since 1904, while Coredo Muromachi mall has modern, stylish restaurants as well as shops for kimonos and lacquerware. The Tōkyō Stock Exchange has a small museum and is surrounded by izakaya bars that fill up with off-duty traders at happy hour.
