Having been as the Edo Shogunate imperial capital, Nihonbashi is an area of commerce and culture. A rich mixture of old shops and high-rise buildings characterizes the area. Kyobashi has long been home to many antique art dealers, and even today there are many galleries promoting the culture of the area. Ginza has the glamour of the neon lights of department stores and brand-name shops, and is home to long-established galleries at the same time. There are a variety of shops, from long-established to new independent. The DAIMARUYU area (Otemachi, Marunouchi and Yurakucho), where the headquarters of major trading companies and enterprises are located, has recently undergone a major redevelopment that has seen an increase of hotels, and is beginning to take on a new face from a place of work to a place for leisure.
