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

This area is a great place for name brand shopping. We hit the Ginza Six, Mitsukoshi, Tokyu Plaza and loved the 12 story Uniqlo flagship store. There are so many places to eat and shop here. My feet were aching from walking and my arms we tired from carrying so many shopping bags. If you're looking for ramen. try Kagari... More
