GINZA

銀座[GINZA]

One of Japan’s most popular upscale shopping areas in central Tokyo with numerous internationally renowned department stores and boutiques along the main street, which turns into a pedestrian precinct on Sundays. Ginza has long been home to Kabuki-za where traditional Kabuki plays are performed while being regarded as a trend-setting town where McDonald’s, Starbucks, and Apple opened their first stores in Japan. The iconic Clock Tower of the Wako Building is the most popular rendezvous place in Ginza. The bell starts ringing at 12 o’clock bell... Ken is late again!
