Ginza - Shopping

Ginza is reputedly the most expensive place to shop in Japan. Famous departments stores include Mitsukoshi, Matsuya, Matsuzakaya, Wako as well as Yurakucho’s Seibu and Hankyu. The building of Wako served as the headquarters for the American troops during the postwar occupation.

Most of the world’s famous fashion designers are represented along Ginza’s 5th Avenue.

On Sundays and national holidays, the Chuo-dori is closed to traffic all the length of Ginza to prevent the numerous pedestrians from overflowing the sidewalk/pavement.
