The only places that haven't change much since the war are a handful of temples, shrines and cemeteries. If you're looking for a charming old Tokyo neighborhood — your best bet is Yurakucho.
Yurakucho is located where the gates of Edo-castle once stood. It's in the middle of the old part of town sandwiched between Ginza, Shimbashi and Hibiya park. It's packed with old fashioned outdoor dining establishments such as yakitori restaurants.
Yurakucho is a popular spot for salary men to hit on weeknights. It's relatively quiet on weekends.
Many of Yurakucho's restaurants are located under the Japan Rail (JR) train tracks. They shake a little as trains pass overhead.
Yurakucho is ranked #6 of 8 best Salary Man neighborhoods in Tokyo
