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

Sorry for the late reply. we lined up for 3 hours last time and that's still pretty fast. If you can wake up early try to be there by 3am and you'll be one of the first group to get in.

Sushi dai is in the inner market, so it will move to toyosu when the market moves. The relocation is on hold so date is unknown.
