There are hidden gems that are worth searching out. However, it has very much become a normal international shopping area. Nothing special to add, all the large high street stores are here. Remember to bring your passport to ensure you can shop duty free.

Ginza is the height of consumer culture in Japan. If you took the people and restaurants out of the equation, you could swear you were in Manhattan or some other prime shopping destination. The skyline of the Ginza area is dotted with very high-end brands with the commensurate price-tags. Having shopped almost everywhere in Asia, the prices were pretty much... More

If you have never been to Ginza, try to visit during weekend when they blocked the traffic and you can take a photo in the middle of the famous crossed junction. I enjoyed the shopping in Ginza, all you need to do is to walk around and check out those department stores. I always managed to find something special every... More

Definetly worth a stroll along the main drag, Chou-dori, especially at night when all the buildings are illuminated. The Chanel and Cartier buildings look spectacular next to each other and there are loads of other high end shops to look at at, (I suspect few tourists would actually go into any of them!💷💷). Some good department stores too which are... More

Ginza is a fascinating area of Tokyo. It is full of the usual "expensive" shops, small cafes, restaurants and a continual bustle of activity. Whether just to look around or for some shopping, Ginza is always an interesting place - the renowned Itoya stationery store is always a favourite.

Great spot for window shopping, admiring architecture and the latest fashion, boutiques, lots of eating choices. Neon lights and very expensive night clubs change the scenery very quickly.

If you are looking for high end shopping and fashion this is where you will find it. All of the highest end retailers are here, the malls are spectacular and even just watching the people walking around shopping is a fun time. As you would expect lots of money also brings excellent restaurants, but also with expensive prices. It was... More

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.
