Ginza on a Sunday is one of the few places left to experience Hokousha-tengoku (歩行者天国), literally meaning ‘pedestrians paradise’, on a major Tokyo street area. There used to be a very popular one at Harajuku until some years ago when the cars beat the pedestrians out.
The Wako Building is a landmark in the Ginza with its clock a symbol of the area.
5th Street, 五番街, is a stylish street for shoppers.
Once I get well again I will hit the Ginza streets and show you some of the fashions and hot spots. If you are in Tokyo and want to get a feeling of openness and shopping in a large outside mall, then Ginza on a Sunday is worth a visit.
