The main street in Ginza is another architectural showpiece street. There is of course restaurants and shopping but just viewing the buildings makes this area worthy of a visit. You can see Mikimoto 2 Building by Toyo Ito, Maison Hermes by Renzo Piano, Shiseido Ginza by Ricardo Bofill, Nicholas G Hayak Center by Shigeru Ban, and Louis Vuitton by Jun Aoki.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

It has definitely list some of its luster but this is still the place for well-heeled gray haired ladies to shop. It is also still a prestigious place for business dining and entertainment.
Easy to spend a fortune eating here. The Mitsukoshi is a shopping highlight and the Bulgari restraint is phenomenal even if you only visit for a drink.

The nightlife lovers' heaven. full of izakaya (bars) and a lot of different experience. Hard to describe, not my favorite, but lots of people loves there.

The Ginza is the most famos shopping district in Japan. Back in the pre-bubble bursting days of the 1980's in Japan, a square foot of real estate on the Ginza was the most expensive real estate of any city on earth.
It's bright neon lights are like Las Vegas meets Times Square.
There are a multitude of shops, both fine Japanese and internationally reknown brands and labels.
There is also nightlife here of all types, but the big thing here is the shoppng. And perhaps a French Restaurants and Coffee shops, where the young women still living at home can go shopping, then gather in small groups afterward to share gossip.
The Ginza may not be the most expensive real estate in the world anymore, but it is still a must have location for the top designers and luxury brands..

The place where the super rich japanese go shopping. Ginza reminds me a lot of 5th avenue with all the big brands and stuff. It is really nice to walk around and do some window shopping.

The Posh area of Tokyo. you can find great shopping spots here and amazing architecture. The Marunouchi business complex has an extensive choice of restaurants all upscale and good quality. the Sony buildig is worth a visit, and the hermes flagship store is breathtaking.

Ginza is the second high class shopping area in Tokyo. Many strange building, It is an old shopping town to modern shopping town. WAGO, the old shopping department store since 1881, the iconic of Hattori Clock Tower built by Kintarō Hattori, the founder of Seiko. You can find the original Japan art and craft product, the refinement handmade product made in Japan. Also other modern shopping stores are easy to find here.
Very easy to go here, just get off at Ginza station (Tokyo metro line) or JR Shimbashi station
