The area
Neighbourhood: Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.

The famous shopping street that rivals or beats those in new york, paris or london. Full of malls, stores, restaurants and other types of shops as far as the eye can see. They even have a car-free saturday when we were there

A great area for shopping, Luxury nameplate after luxury nameplate, If you enjoy car spoting you will see some serious metal driving or parked. Astonishingly clean. Great for walking.

Top of the Ginza SIX department store has super shallow water place where kids can play & parents can sit on bench

Ginza Kabukiza Gallery was so much fun as you can anticipate many props & outside back of the building has cool red stairs

I went to the Kabuki show in Ginza without any advance booking, but we had no issue getting tickets. We had to stand in the theater, but it was unique experience. The show was fun and impressive. After the show, my family and I had sushi for lunch. Everything we got was great. Unfortunately, rainy weather followed our lunch. However, it is still a must-do in Tokyo.

I'm not a fan of having shopping days while traveling abroad; but I'd definitely make an exception when it's Ginza. It's true that the streets are lined up with high-end fashion boutiques I wouldn't even dream of stepping into; but it's also home to reasonably-priced brands such as Uniqlo and GU. In contrast to having mega shopping establishments littered with endless lists of shops; Ginza boasts of boutique shops and brands which come in a building of their own. It's a wide shopping area; but it allows for efficient shopping, especially when you're armed with a trusty shopping map. As you're strolling from store to store, you're guaranteed to have quality sight-seeing as each building boasts of its own architectural style and personality.

Well worth the local walk (stroll) and preferably at dusk as lights are great. Great to people watch and see the high-class shops (all are immaculate). Check out the department stores food area on lower floors. Try a back street restaurant, behind same - cheap/cheerful (a total delight, Tokyo live-style).

This is were the high end retailers are along with some large department stores and the Nissan showcase car showroom. You can’t walk ten minutes without hearing the road from some super car. Very close to the Shimbashi train station so was very easy for us to navigate around. We did manage to find a German beer house so that rounded it all of.
My favourite district in Tokyo.
