    Ginza is an up market shopping area in central Tokyo featuring major department stores, international fashion brand stores, galleries, restaurants and some distinctive architecture. Our guide includes an extensive array of shops and landmarks along with a detailed interactive map.

    Ginza in Japanese literally means “Silver Mint”, which historically related to the coin mint located in the district in the 1600’s and 1700’s. The title still holds true today as it is packed with brand name stores and up market department stores on some of the most expensive land in Japan. Located in the central part of Tokyo, in the Chuo ward and is in walking distance to Tokyo Imperial Palace. The heart of the district is the Ginza 4-chome Intersection, which is the junction of Chuo-dori and Harumi-dori. From midday to sunset on Sundays, the central section of Chuo-dori is closed to vehicles making it a pedestrians paradise.

      Regularly come to Ginza for window-shopping. Oddly enough, the first time I went Ginza, it was in the dead of night, so a lot of the department stores were closed. However, my friends and I noted that the people walking around were dressed to the nines. I’m talking fur coats and pearl necklaces. We felt really under-dressed and ended up hiding in a karaoke-kan until it was morning.
