This is the quieter street a couple of blocks away and running in parallel to Chuo-dori (Ginza's main street), where the Japanese wealthy go to shop for their luxury brands. Chuo-dori has the big department stores and some larger flagship shops, and Namiki dori is considered more exclusive. Lined with trees and boutiques, it is a pleasant street for window... More

Chanced upon the area during our daily walk up and down The Ginza in the evening. Namiki-Dori is a street in the Ginza area which perhaps houses the most exclusive showrooms in Tokyo. What that actually means is that You and I are good enough for window shopping here😂. High end showrooms, expensive restaurants and the Glitz... Come here at... More

If you are looking for high end shops and expensive restaurants .and enjoy a walk through this up scale area of Tokyo. The shops are well presented and you know what you get at street level but the restaurants are a different matter as most are either in the buildings and not well signed and check the pricing as it...

Namiki Dori is one of the best shopping streets in Ginza. It offers a large range of bars, cafes and restaurants as well as a couple of fabulous art stores and galleries, high end clothing and some of the best jewellery stores in Japan. It is not a place for the fainthearted or those looking for a bargain but does... More

The street is mostly just large buildings with large high-end shops, so while its entertaining enough to walk through, I can't say I felt there was very much to do apart from shopping very extravagantly.

Namiki Dori is one of the icons of The Ginza. It has been there long before the war and was rebuilt around 20 years ago with trees added on both sides of this one way street. The shops on Namiki Dori are quite upmarket with many watch shops, restaurants, Kimono shops, designer clothes and so on. Its a very pleasant... More

Namiki is an interesting enough walk. It can get a bit congested, and is cool if you like brands and fancy shopping. But generally the place does not have the cachet of some of the other great shopping streets around the globe.

Staying in Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
