The list below is some of the spots you must visit around Shinbashi
A complex of small shops, restaurants, bars, and offices, located in front of Shinbashi station. Unlike Shiodome's new office buildings on the other side of the station, it's retro and sometimes nostalgic. Established in 1971, started building after the Tokyo Olympics. You could get lost in the maze like structure inside, but exploring the "maze" is the most fun part. Packed with Japanese businessman during weekdays.

Tsukiji Shijo is one of the most famous and largest fish market in the world. The market place was originally established in Nihonbashi but moved to Tsukiji after the big earthquake in 1923. The place is as big as 54 acres of land, and accomodates 15,000 people, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day. It is scheduled to move to a new site in Toyosu in late 2016.
