IT is a free museum in Ginza area. It's fun to take pictures outside the museum as they have some police bikes there for you to 'ride' on

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's

world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
