Nice area with all the top end brands. Lots of places to eat lunch with nice views (e.g: the restaurant at the top of the famous stationery building). Great department store shopping. The only thing to do here is spend lots of money, that is a plus for some people!

If you want to visit an up-market area in Tokyo, then Ginza is the place to go. Here you will find countless high-end branded stores such as Hermes, Chanel and Japanese departments such as Mitsukoshi, Matsuya. I've been around Tokyo but I've never seen so many ladies carrying around their Hermes Birkin and Kelly bags as many times as I've... More

Fun area to explore the high-end shopping. Of particular fun is the basement and all the wonderful food options to try out. Usually you can find some smaller options to try. The stores are well-maintained and plenty of options to examine.

The area looses its traffic on Saturdays and becomes walkable and enjoyable. Do a tourist like me visiting the 12th floors Uniqlo was quite an experience. Super nice.

We visited on a Sunday and the streets were blocked off from traffic. Every high end store was in the mall. We loved people watching and seeing the chic style of Tokyo.

Lined with brand name stores and new shopping malls ( Ginza 6 being the latest), Ginza can satisfy the shopaholic and any stomachs. From sushi to steak house to dessert shops. You name it there is probably one around the corner. As an architecture enthusiast, Ginza is a must go. Mikomoto, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari etc. all have interesting facades.... More

We came here for lunch and for the drop-off location on our Panoramic Tokyo tour. It is a nice area with a lot of expensive brands such as Giorgio Armani & Coach.

Bright lights, dramatic buildings lit up in many colors, luxury stores, busy with people everywhere. No trash cans in case you need to throw something away! Great place to window shop.

Ginza reminds us of Regent Street in London! It is an area filled with some of the best branded shops in the world. However, it also has stores that sell goods made in Japan at very reasonable prices. It is very pleasant to walk around Ginza because there is so much to see and to buy. Like most of Japan,... More

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.
