Nihonbashi is located in the East Tokyo where traditional Japanese characteristics are still remained. Relatively wealthier families tend to reside today and you'd see numbers of villas there. Since it’s located close to Tokyo Station, the Imperial Palace, and a popular electrical city Akihabara, there are many hotels available for tourists to base in during their stay. You'll most likely encounter at least one group of foreign tourists that is pausing on the street looking at their map.
