Don't expect many shopping bargains on this high end area of Tokyo, window shopping is less expensive. Virtually all high end brand names are represented but don't expect discounts

Pedestrain street on sunday, the Tokyoites are so fashionably dressed while shopping in their department stores. Finding an unagi restaurant that has been around for more than a 100 years old -Miyagawa Honten on the 8th floor of the Matsuya Dept store was a treat for unagi lovers. Shopping at Ginza is not cheap but you can be assured the products have been tastefully edited-- so much temptations--simply cakes & cookies are presented in crafted packaging. We enjoy the food basement of the department stores at Ginza, from food gift treats to take outs (after 7pm watch out for 20-30% discounts on take out food items). Thee was a MOMA (museum of modern art) souvenir shop at the corner where there is Sony showroom -- I enjoy museum souvenir shop -sometimes more than the museum. You can acquire your Issey Miyake designer BaiBai shopping bag here. Tokyo is no longer the world's most expensive capital city- it now belongs to Singapore. $100 a nite hotels are now easily found throughout Agoda or Booking.com . Dining in Tokyo can be affordable --especially breakfast & lunch where the bento box (set lunch) are at promotional prices. You have great food and good shopping that awaits you in Japan :-)

A classic area of Tokyo, it's worth a look. Easy to spend a lot of time or just a little. Hard to say you were here and didn't come see! I'm not a shopper when we travel, but if you are, well ~ you will probably say it's paradise! And strolling just for the experience doesn't cost a single Yen!

Ginza shopping 1 2 3
Hi class shopping; just no fast foods eat in their fancy malls...
Jr. Line to Shimbashi just follow the track head on foot without using jr line 1.40 yen cost to the yurikamome line is at the Shimbashi station. When walking heads towards restaurant rows that has the best beef tongue to boot! Best roasted hazelnut can be had on jr line as well as famous small bakery for strawberry Mochi and banana I've ever tasted around mall corner where fresh veggies are sold! What a city to wander....

The Sony building is located near the station and the street is very lively with branded prodcuts having their showrooms which include Seiko watches etc.
A must see street and area.
