We would like to take you to a little tour of Otemachi again!
This time, let me introduce the “Otemachi Nakadori” which is the main and brand-new street of Otemachi..
Marunouchi Naka-dori is the main street connecting between Harumi street and Eitai street, which is parallel to Hibiya street. There are 17 buildings such as Marunouchi building, Marunouchi Park building, and Shin Marunouchi building lined. From summer in 2015, about 600-meter street which address is from Marunouchi 3-1-1 to Marunouchi 2-3-2, became “Pedestrian street”. There, various events are held by each season.
－New restaurant district
There are more than 60 restaurants in this 2 blocks area which is between Tokyo Sankei building and Tokyo Financial City including the Otemachi Nakadori that where you can grab lunch during business hours or have a drink after work. The popular spots are Carnesio, which is a popular Italian bistro in Ebisu that opened their 2nd location here, a Singaporean restaurant called CLARKE QUAY, Craft beer market Otemachi, and a health-conscious salad stand and the beef barbecue restaurant where you can enjoy cooking the meat alone. In addition, the Otemachi Building, the oldest building in this area between Otemachi Naka-dori and Marunouchi Naka-dori has many more restaurants from the first level to the second basement.

In the near future, “Otemachi Marche” will be regularly held like a blue sky market where the farm producers open up stores and sells the fresh food and products. It can be checked on the Facebook.
－The Neo-Yatai Village (Food trucks) at Tokyo Sankei Building
While some new spots are opened in Otemachi area, still the Neo-Yatai Village (Food trucks) in the grand floor of Tokyo Sankei Building is popular among the businessmen. There are 4-5 food trucks stand by at the grand floor plaza which called the “Metro Square flat”, and provide variety of delicious lunch boxes every day.
