Enjoy sushi, Japanese sake, udon and craft from all over Japan! In the Edo period (1603-1868), goods from all over Japan were traded in Nihonbashi. The river that runs through the town brought goods and traffic through its port. In the Showa period (1926-89), the first Japanese department store opened here, but the number of shops that sold regional specialties gradually decreased over the years. Recently, the attraction of regional specialties has been reaffirmed and shops that handle such products are increasing in number again.
