A New Side to Ginza

Ginza is undergoing redevelopment, and new places to shop, dine and sightsee are adding a whole new dimension to this famous shopping district.



Ginza Six Opened April 2017. The largest department store in Ginza. Home to many shops that present the best of Japanese aesthetics, including kimono boutique Jotaro Saito, makeup concept store Shu Uemura, and Ginza Tsutaya Books, a bookstore where you can buy museum-quality reprints of Kitagawa Utamaro's works.


Tokyu Plaza Ginza Opened March 2016. This shopping center contains a boutique called Fujimaki Hyakkaten, which features watches made with Arita ware porcelain, ultra-thin beer glasses, long-lasting jeans and other products from all across Japan made with exceptional craftsmanship.


Ginza Place Opened September 2016. This building features showrooms where you can see cars and electronics packed with state-of-the-art Japanese tech and a restaurant called Kobe Plaisir Ginza, which specializes in scrumptious Kobe beef.


Morioka Shoten A bookstore that carries just one title at a time. Items related to the book are also displayed in order to create a space that promotes deep immersion in the current book's perspective.


Ginza Asami A traditional ryotei restaurant along a Ginza backstreet which serves an inexpensive sea bream chazuke lunch.


Barber Yanagi A barbershop with deep roots, founded all the way back in 1882. The barber wields a Japanese-style razor with deft skill to deliver an ultra-close shave, and even throws in a massage afterwards. A great place to appreciate the superb customer service of traditional Japanese barbers.

When did you first come to Japan?:
I started visiting Japan annually in 2004 and then relocated here in February of 2013.
Reason for coming to Japan:
When I first started visiting Japan it was for tourism and spending time with friends and family. I then relocated here as an intra-company transferee from my employer's headquarters in the US to our office in Tokyo. My main interests in Japan are language, food, domestic travel, history, Sumo and Showa era pop culture.
