Yurakucho is a neighbourhood of just a few blocks in central Tokyo focused on Yurakucho Station on the JR Yamanote Line and Yurakucho Station on the Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line.

It’s notable for having a large Bic Camera electronics store (only about 8 stories!) and for lots of rustic bars and izakaya tucked under the elevated railway line. Head to the JR Yurakucho station anytime after 6pm, and walk south down the train tracks and you’ll soon stumble across a variety of such izakayas and bars packed with salarymen in varying degrees of drunkeness.

If you want to get a good photo of the Shinkansen (bullet train) sliding into Tokyo Station, then head to the roof (or one of the lower floors) of the nearby Kotsu Kaikan building (the building right next to Yurakucho with a revolving restaurant on top).
