Ginza walk in Tokyo
My recommendation of Ginza is to walk the main street during daytime. Due to the reflection of light, you can take good photos there. A good starting point is Ito-ya, a stationery store located near Ginza 2 chome area, from where you can walk through the main street to Shiseido building near Ginza 7 chome area.
Ito-ya has been operating as a stationary store since 1904 and provides various kinds of cards and notebooks. When I visited Ito-ya, they had a special space to sell TAKEO MIHONCHO, a product of a traditional paper company. Periodically, Ito-ya features special stationery companies.
I ordered my name card at Ito-ya.
Towards the middle of the main street, there is Wako, a traditional department store and Mikimoto, a pearl shop near Ginza 4 chome area.
My favorite book store is Kyobun-kan, which is located near Wako. Kyobun-kan is selling non–commercialized children’s book and English books too.
There is a cafe on the 4th floor, serving hand-made sweets with a nice view of Ginza.
Kyobunkan building was constructed in 1933 with an Art Deco design.
You can also take small narrow streets from the main street. There are traditional sword shops and Kimono shops too.
At the end of the main Ginza street, you can seeShiseido building.
