Ginza

The exclusive shopping district where land is more expensive than anywhere else in Japan. Home to upscale department stores and exclusive brand boutiques, as well as gourmet restaurants, Ginza has a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere. Cars are prohibited in Ginza from noon on weekends and holidays, transforming the district into a relaxing Pedestrian Heaven. This practice of temporarily pedestrianizing shopping districts, which originated in Ginza, has since been introduced in many other places throughout Japan. From Ginza, the districts of Tsukiji, Yurakucho, and Hibiya are within walking distance. The Tsukiji fish market is popular with Japanese and international visitors alike. Hibiya is another sophisticated district, featuring the expansive, green oasis of Hibiya Park.
