Ginza is Tokyo's fashion central with expensive real estate, high class boutique and brand stores. After dark the streets are bright with large neon signs for every brand imaginable and monstrous video screens.

 

On weekends the main street of Ginza is closed to traffic so there is plenty of room to walk around. There are thousands of people walking around shopping and relaxing in the cafes and the 4000 restaurants found in Ginza.
