This walking tour was exactly what I was looking for. I learned several things about the district and its customs, traditions, and food. Misa, our guide, gave us interesting information and made the whole walking tour a very pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
