A plaque on the street in Ginza claims to mark the single most expensive spot of land on the entire planet. As you’d expect, there are an array of the most expensive boutiques and brands in the world. So it’s a great spot for window shopping and people watching. As with even the most expensive neighbourhoods there are always cheapo eats and activities. Ginza has an excellent collection of modern architecture, public art and free show rooms.

On Sunday each week, Chuo Dori – the main thoroughfare through Ginza – becomes ‘Pedestrian Paradise’. The road is blocked to all traffic and tables and chairs are placed in the middle of the street.
