Having just finished a Mt Fuji tour, I wasn't too keen on dropping by Ginza. I hadn't really planned on shopping much this trip. It's the same as all other shopping metros in other countries I've gone to, even my own. To be fair, we arrived there around 5:30pm and only went through the most busy avenue of stores and... More

Get your shop on in one of the many malls in Ginza. There are so many stores, it's probably impossible to hit them all. The whole area is great for finding unique gifts to take home for others (or yourself)! :)

We visited our first night in Tokyo, it was an assault of light and impressive buildings. Seems this is a must be location for any luxury brand or product, intensely packed into such a small area of high rises. By day it's intriguing, at night it's a neon explosion. There is food everywhere but on some high floor of a... More

If you love brand name products, this is the place to be. Glitzy, shiny, beautifully lit shop displays and roadside displays. We love the food lanes and restaurants directly beneath the Yurakucho station between Ginza, Hibiya stations. There was even a brave 7 piece band of young musicians jamming outside the Yurakucho station one evening, in the cold! Since it... More

visited in the afternoon, visited some upscale shops and tried some of the local famous pastries. nice for a hanging out type of day, walked into the Sony exhibit which was kind of dry, the Nissan exhibits were more interesting to check out. ironically found one of the best exchange rates in a side street for US dollars.

Great shop windows with truly artistic displays. Clean and superb area to stroll around in early evening. Visit Sony building and Tokyo Plaza opposite, and wine bar in basement.

It's a typical shopping district with good variety of luxury brands. But as expected with Asian sizes, clothes are just tiny! Shop for shoes and bags instead. =)

Well, a nice, clean and chic neighborhood. It looks like cities' downtown with its fancy shops and restaurants. Nothing really special beside a cute old theater we almost missed seeing as it's surrounded by skyscrapers.

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.
