Ginza is a nearly endless chain of high-end flagship stores not less but also not more. Only few really unusual shops like K.Itoya, Hakuhinkan and Tenshodo. Anything else is mainly about clothes, shoes and cosmetics. Have a look at Matsuya then you have seen most of it.

High quality stores if you're looking for more of the same (downside of globalisation). Take the side streets for smaller shops and unknown names, son't forget that a lot of shops are on higher floors

Full of many fancy brands, and crouded with people until late hours. There is a wide range of restaurants, some are directly located on the streets and others in high floors.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
