Nippori Textile Town
At present, about 90 shops (about 60 companies) are affiliated, mainly in the area from Nippori Station to Nippori Chuo-dori. People who enjoy fashion, handicrafts, and making things (designers, makers, writers, students, etc.) visits the town to look for materials. From the Taisho era to the end of the Showa era, the town was a wholesale district, lined with shops that sold wholesale to local specialty businesses. However, as times change, the number of shops that support retail sales has increased.
Yanaka Ginza Shopping Street
As soon as you get out of the west exit of Nippori Station on the Yamanote Line, there is a famous place for cherry blossoms. As the number of shops gradually increased, the place where the field of vision suddenly opened up is a famous spot for the sunset called “Yuyake dan-dan”. There is a nostalgic view of downtown below, which makes you think that “there are still places like this in Tokyo… “ At the center of this shopping street is the Yanaka Ginza Shopping Street. In the shopping street, about 60 shops of various industries, mainly old-fashioned individual shops, are located along the 170-meter-long street.
This is a famous spot in Tokyo, where the large lantern and the Nakamise shops convey an Edo-style atmosphere. The present main hall was rebuilt in 1958 in a reinforced concrete structure. It is one of the Seven Lucky Gods of Asakusa.

It has a large hall, a small hall, rehearsal rooms and various meeting rooms, as well as a music library as a reference room.
