Travel Guide - Nihonbashi Bridge


Nihonbashi is the originating point of the historical Five Highways of Japan (Tokaido, Nakasendo, Kohshu-kaido, Ohshu-kaido and Nikko-kaido), and the "Road Marker" is placed on the center of the bridge. It has been designated as an Important Cultural Property. The first Nihonbashi Bridge was a wooden bridge built in 1603 by Tokugawa Ieyasu. After destroyed by fire again and again, the current bridge is the 20th. There are famous department stores and traditional shops of Nihonbashi in the neighborhood. A boat trip to Tokyo Skytree can be enjoyed from the boat dock that was completed in 2011.
