Nihonbashi Kabuto-cho was the area Eiichi Shibusawa, the father of modern Japanese economics, settled in the early Meiji period (1868-1912). He went on to establish Japan's first bank, the First National Bank, and the Tokyo Stock Exchange. However, with the computerization of stock trading, the people and companies that used to gather there are now leaving or have already left, and in recent years the area has lost its color. Now, however, a new color is beginning to spread in the city.
The new colors of Kabutocho, or in other words; the activities of the people and their connections, have a new context. This website carefully weaves together those invisible connections and their contexts. By digging deep into the little-known stories of each person, we will bring out the charm and character of the ever-changing Kabutocho.
