A pedestrian friendly street that lies not too far from South Exit of JR Tokyo Station is Marunouchi-naka-Dori or better known to the English speakers as Marunouchi Shopping Street. We did not expect to experience the air of sophistication, somehow our destination to Imperial Palace brought us to pass through an up-scale area of Marunouchi which are lined up with international boutiques such as Hermes, Brook Brothers, Tiffany & Co, Kate Spade and Royal Copenhagen. This is the so-called Tokyo's Fifth Avenue!
From the first thought of standing at Manhattan in NYC, the sight of blooming tulips planted along the walkway on both sides of the street seemed transporting me to Amsterdam on the next second! Back to my senses, I realized that I was still on the ground of Tokyo. Exhibiting the outlook of premier shopping street, Marunouchi is the home to banking buildings, offices, upscale restaurants and boutiques of individually styled.
The best time of year to be here is Christmas and New Year season. Thousands of light bulbs strung on the trees would illuminates the street and shops are decorated with elegant Christmas ornaments color the ambiance from mid November to mid February.
About 2 minutes walk from Marunouchi Subway Tokyo Station or Exit 7 Nijubashimae Subway Station (Chiyoda Line). Less than 5 minutes walk from Otemachi Subway Station (Mita Line) or South Exit JR Tokyo Station.
