Ginza is a fancy place with lots of high-end brand stores and various restaurants. My fave place here is actually the itoya stationery store. The designs of the buildings in Ginza are good for a background for photos as well.
When you visit Tokyo, don't miss to visit Ginza. Not just only with department stores and luxury flagship stores, but also with sophisticated Japanese traditional crafts, galleries and fine dinning restaurant by the ally. Take you time tour from Ginza 1 chome to 6 chome to discover the different atmosphere!
Ginza is definitively a place I like to hang out when I get tired of the small streets of Tokyo and want to feel fancy!
If you love fashion, jewels and good brands in general, Ginza is a great place to find international brands and do some window shopping or even real shopping if you are in the mood to splurge!
They have some nice cafes as well, so I always feel like is a great place to go hang out with your girl friends or as a couple!
I love the night view specially!
Ginza is an awesome place to visit if you want to dress up little and live a little luxuriously for a day. The shops here are amazing for high-end fashion goers and foodies. Of particular interest to me was the massive 12-floor Uniqlo building - the biggest in the world.
There are also a number of high-end department stores with amazing groceries as well - from super-fresh Japanese pork to high-end cakes and sweets. Restaurant goers will appreciate the plethora of sushi restaurants nearby too, as Ginza is situated very close to Tsukiji market.
Even if you aren't into dressing up or living the fancy life, Ginza is great for simply people-watching and getting in a different vibe from Tokyo's other districts.
Tall buildings, crowded places and a lot of noise. Ginza has not surprised me at all, just a normal big city.
It is something new or worth an experience if you have never seen one, but for me it was just boring and annoying there. The shops are also just stereotypical brand stores like Armani, Prada, Apple...
Maybe you can go shopping there if you have much money, but even for that there are better places.
Bees living on rooftops, the most expensive plot of land in the world, and some of the most expensive shops in Japan, make Ginza an ideal place to shop for high-end brands.
Big name stores, great restaurants, and fashionable people line the streets. Some great galleries and museums (the Vanilla Gallery a personal favorite), easy access, and its pedestrianised streets at the weekend add the experience.
Ginza's central location makes it a great place to stop off at whenever you are travelling around Tokyo.
