Stroll the streets of the historical area of Ginza. Browse both Tokyo’s original department stores and uber-modern shopping and restaurant complexes. Try out the latest technology in Ginza Place's showcase theaters and be entertained by an art form of an altogether different era.
Exit from the historical department stores and browse Ginza's upscale modern boutiques and traditional stores of high repute. Traffic is diverted off the main thoroughfare on weekends and national holidays, meaning you can stroll the streets freely.
Drop into the striking white structure of Ginza Place for a long lunch. Choose from mouthwatering Kobe Beef, exquisite European bistros and old-fashioned beer halls. See what's new in the high-tech world of audio equipment and automobiles on the showcase floors.
Head in the direction of Higashi-ginza Station to Kabukiza Theatre—the home of Kabuki. Catch the evening show that starts relatively early at 4:30 p.m. You can reserve tickets online, or buy them on the day from the box office. Tickets for individual acts are available if you don't have time for an entire performance.
After you have filled up on Japanese tradition, head back up the main street to the gleaming Ginza Six building. The complex houses shops dedicated to modern living and a range of restaurants and bars for you to toast to a Ginza day of elegance.
