Tokyo - Marunouchi & Nihombashi (PDF Chapter)
This is the Marunouchi & Nihombashi chapter from Lonely Planet’s Tokyo guidebook.
Tokyo’s geographical centre is the Imperial Palace, home of Japan’s emperor. Nearby, Marunouchi has blossomed with new and revamped buildings. Tree-lined Naka-dōri has morphed into one of Tokyo’s most pleasant thoroughfares. Also having undergone a recent architectural facelift is Nihombashi.

- be blown away by the beautiful displays at the fascinating Intermediatheque, crafted from the eclectic collection of Tokyo University.
- gaze up at the vast atrium at the Tokyo International Forum, which also hosts a great antiques market twice a month.
