Running under the rail tracks between Shimbashi and Yurakucho, Corridor Gai is one of the most popular streets for dining and drinking in the Ginza area. It is also a section of one of the best gado-shita night walks in Tokyo which takes you from the Ginza Exit of Shimbashi Station to Yurakucho Station.

The street is particularly lively on weekday evenings when the office workers from the nearby offices of Shimbashi and Shiodome come flooding out looking to let their hair down. You can find just about anything on this street, from chain gyoza restaurants to specialist Japanese wine and whisky bars.
