Nijubashimae Station lies on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line in Marunouchi, Chiyoda Ward, Tokyo. It is located just one station south of Otemachi Station, the biggest subway station of Tokyo.


Marunouchi being a financial and business district, several banks and corporations have their headquarters in the area surrounding Nijubashimae Station. The Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry is also located just one minute walk from the station.


The Imperial Palace is located right in front of Nijubashimae Station, with Nijubashi Bridge just one minute on foot from Exit 2. In fact Nijubashimae Station takes its name from Nijubashi, the most famous bridge of Japan.


Nijubashi Bridge


Nijubashi Bridge has long been a symbol of Tokyo. This wooden bridge, built in 1888, spans the moat between the outer and inner gardens surrounding the Imperial Palace. Nijubashi means “Double Bridge”. It is so named because the girders where the bridge rested were doubled for support since the part of the moat the bridge spans is very deep. When the bridge was reconstructed in 1964 (the present bridge is the reconstructed one), the girders were further reinforced with wooden beams.


Nijubashi Bridge is very popular with tourists, who love to have their photographs taken in front of it. The bridge is open to the public only on two occasions – the 2 nd of January to wish the Imperial Family, and on the 23 rd of December, which is the Emperor's official birthday.


Tokyo Kaikan


Tokyo Kaikan is an upscale dining and meeting facility located in front of the Imperial Palace, a short walk from Nijubashimae Station. The facility is very popular with both the Japanese and foreign executives and dignitaries because of its elegance and ambience.


Tokyo Kaikan consists of 10 banquet rooms (ranging in size from the smallest that can seat 15 people for private dinners, to the largest which is mostly used for VIP receptions and corporate events); several meeting rooms; and four fine restaurants (one serving French cuisine, one Continental, one Chinese, and one Japanese – each serving exceptional food). All the restaurants have private rooms for entertaining special VIPs. Tokyo Kaikan also offers catering services to both individual and corporate clients.
