Bakuro-yokoyama Station lies on the Toei Shinjuku subway line in the Nihonbashi area of Chuo Ward of Tokyo. Although the station is located in the Yokoyama district of Nihonbashi, it serves both Yokoyama and Bakuro districts, hence the name. Bakuro-yokoyama Station is also connected with the neighboring Higashi Nihonbashi Station by an underground passage.


Bakuro and Yokoyama together form the textile and clothing wholesalers' district of Tokyo. Locally known as "Yokoyamacho/Bakurocho Wholesale Town", the area has a history that goes back to the Tokugawa period. During that time the area was located on a busy main road, and so many hotels were built along the way. Merchants coming from all over Japan to trade stayed in these hotels and opened their stores nearby. Soon the place grew into a busy wholesale business area. During the Meiji period, the area grew even more and became a large commercial zone with most of the original wholesale businesses remaining in the area.


Today, the Yokoyamacho/Bakurocho Wholesale Town is one of Japan's largest areas where wholesale stores come together. There are over 1,500 stores in a row with each store handling a wide array of both Western and Japanese textile, clothing and accessories. It is a very busy area with mainly retail shop clients frequenting the stores.
