One of Tokyo’s oldest commercial centers, Kyobashi is located in the heart of the city, between Ginza and Nihonbashi. The neighborhood is named after the Kyobashi or “Capital” Bridge, one of the most famous bridges during the Edo period. Although the bridge no longer stands, a small pillar marks the spot where thousands of merchants once sold their wares. Today, the neighborhood still maintains some of its oldest traditions, scattered with kabuki theaters and art galleries.
Kyobashi Station lies on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
