HISTORY & TRADITION

When the Japanese capital moved to Tokyo (then called Edo) in 1869, many of the country’s foremost artisans and establishments followed the Emperor and set up shop here. Stroll around the Nihonbashi area to visit family run businesses that carry on time-honored craft traditions. Visit one of the city's many ancient temples or shrines, or the recently restored Marunouchi side of Tokyo Station to get a better understanding of the history that binds this fascinating city together.
