There are many popular shops and restaurants in Marunouhi but for those not interested in spending moey, also quite a few things can be found just walking around this area, historic buildings such as Tokyo Station, Wadakura Bridge, as well as parks around Imperial Palace

This is the place to shop if you are looking for anything for kids with a logo or theme from Japan's famous characters. The prices are not cheap and gifts are more for younger kids. There are many shops, each for a special theme.

between Ginza, Yurakucho, and The Imperial Palace Marunouchi is a peaceful haven in the middle of hyper Tokyo. With the recent development of the area it now has some of the best shopping, hotels, and restaurants in Tokyo. A great place to take a break from the hectic surroundings.

It used to be just a business area but the many buildings mostly occupied by Mitsubishi companies have changed their ground floors to up market shops and some good restaurants.. The streets have been done with paving and the area is tree-lined. There is much to see in this area from the very busy Tokyo station, Tokyo Forum to the... More

Choose from standing sashimi bar to fancy italian restaurant. There are many izakayas (gastropubs) around this area and they're usually crowded with locals. But most places have an English menu if you ask for it. Great place to savour local pub foods.

The buildings are neat from the outside and inside. Each building although similar, had a completely different vibe on the inside. Our favorites were the Marunouchi, the Shin Marunouchi, and Kitte. Each building has somthing unique to offer. Be sure to check out the terrace in the Shin Marunouchi and the rooftop garden in Kitte. The brick Marunouchi building has... More

What could I say ? Marunouchi is an upscale tall office buildings and shopping area near the Tokyo central station. recommended for rich travelers, but not for me... Architecture of the buildings and urban space are impressive though..

Walking distance from the Peninsula Hotel, it was very easy to stroll the beautiful, wide tree-lined streets. Lots of boutiques and dining establishments...Felt like Paris, or New York, with a high-level of chic-ness!

If you're into modern architecture I suggest taking a stroll around Marunouchi Tokyos financial district. It is super clean and right next to the imperial gardens so you get to see the best of modern architecture and ancient gardens in a small space
