Ginza Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
For more than 100 years Ginza has stood for luxury, high society and shopping. The whole of Ginza was designed by an English architect after it was destroyed in 1872. At first the brick shops focused on selling western-style consumer goods, like men's suits and women's dresses. Unfortunately Ginza was flattened again in the Second World War. The Wako Department store is one of the few buildings still standing and gives you an idea of what Ginza must have been like. For more info see the shopping. But Ginza has managed to keep is image as the major expensive shopping area of Tokyo. Be sure not to miss a performance at the Kabuki-za, see entertainment for details.
