Ginza is well known around the world as the Luxury Shopping Capital of Japan and as many as 1/4 of the famous brands of europe like hermes, louis vuitton, gucci, christian dior, balenciaga, etc produces like bags, clothes, wallets and others are bought by the japanese and most of these are bought in this luxe Ginza District and at Omotesando. One square meter of land in the district's center is worth more than ten million yen (more than 100,000 US dollars), making it one of the most expensive real estate in Japan. It is where you can find the infamous $10 cups of coffee and where virtually every leading brand name in fashion and cosmetics has a presence, need I say more?

What to buy: well it dependsd on the capacity of your wallet and your credit card but i would suggest you buy the branded european stuff like louis vuitton or hermes or gucii and others NOT HERE IN JAPAN since they are about 20% more expensive than buying the same stuff in the United States or in other countries due to the large taxes levied by the japanese government for these luxury items!

What to pay: maxx out your credit card
