Center of Tokyo "Nihonbashi"

I went to Nihonbashi. There are 23 wards in Tokyo. Nihonbashi is in Chuo-ward. It is the center of Tokyo. Nihonbashi is a business district in Tokyo. Also Nihonbashi is banks and commercial hub. Nihonbashi is also the name of bridge over the Nihonbashi river. Nihonbashi is the starting point of road network. There are many old and magnificent building.

The stature of Kilometer Zero. Kilometer zero is a location from which distances are measured. 


There are magnificent columns.

It's a Chilin. Chilin is a Chinese legendary animal. It has wings and expresses great leap of capital.

This is the Sumitomo Mitsui Trust bank. It's a very old magnificent building. There is no these kind of building around my house.


Here is the Bank of Japan. The Band of Japan is the central bank of Japan. It's a magnificent building too. It's a very cool.

It was getting dark. The lights turned on.


Nihonbashi is quite different from modern area like Shibuya and Harajuku. I hope that you will go to see the center of Tokyo!!
