"Ginza and beyond......" Ginza Tip by cheesecake17
Ginza, Tokyo: 52 reviews and 81 photos
But those days are long gone ....."cafes" are now hostess bars , the shopping streets are very much the territory of the middle aged housewife. ONLY fashion is still very much the word. Brand name bags costing tens of thousands of yen are the essential shopping accessory .....
When you Exit C2 of Ginza Subway Station, brings you out next to the Sukiyabashi zebra crossing.... look out for the department stores Hankyu,
Mitsukoshi department store,
Apple store ginza,
Tsukiji fish market,
Nakajin capsule apartment building..
Ginza is a very pleasing area to visit. This area is very sophisticated and caters to adults and the wealthy. It is not too different from Shinjuku, Shibuya, or other areas in regards to the shops and entertainment but it tends to be a cleaner and less chaotic area.
Ginza is definitely worth checking out for an afternoon or on a weekend. A good idea would be to have a cup of coffee or eat a meal, do some shopping, and walk around and get a feel for the Ginza area.
Address: Ginza, Chuo, Tokyo
