The heart of the expressways in Tokyo; branching out to the whole country.
My venture into Nihonbashi for the first time started with my hunt for a renown cake shop, Hidemi Sugino, which my friend had visited on his previous trip to Japan. Vocally expressing his delight at having been able to taste the gorgeous cakes there made me rather envious, thus I was determined to get a bite by hook or by crook.

There weren’t many people around in the neighbourhood, but nevertheless, there was a growing queue for Hidemi Sugino as I left the place.
And of course, Nihonbashi itself.
The views while on the bridge, and under the expressway.
My primary purpose in heading to Nihonbashi was to actually try probably the best Tendon in Tokyo, at Kaneko Hannosuke. It was a good one to one and a half hour’s wait just to have a very satisfying and filling bowl of Tendon. It is definitely a must try for people who are passing by Nihonbashi, or are there to see the bridge. Regardless, I enjoyed the walk around its neighbourhood and buzz in the vicinity.
