  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  
    Tokyo’s best-known district is named after a silver mint originally located here. Once the epitome of ehic, Ginza has lost many of its smartest young shoppers to the fashion boutiques of districts like Omotesando and Daikanyama, but the area is still fascinating.
  • What can you see and do? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  

    The windows of such department stores as Wako and Mitsukoshi are works of art. Inside, there’s more art: all the major department stores project themselves as bastions of culture, maintaining their own galleries and mounting frequent world-class exhibitions of prints, painting, pottery and sculpture,

    Downstairs you can find still more “art” – to Western eyes at least – in the astonishing basement gourmet food displays. (You will find in that in the basement is a great place for snacks, and cheaper than you'll find above in the street-level restaurants.)

    North of the main Ginza 4-chome crossing is Hibiya Koen, Tokyo’s fist Western-style park, and the futuristic Tokyo international Forum, an architectural bombshell made almost entirely of glass. Besides its concert halls, restaurant and a sweeping atrium called the Glass Hall, the Japan National Tourist Organization’s main office is located here.

    Running roughly north-south through Ginza from corner of Hibiya Park all the way to Tokyo Bay is the broad avenue called Harumi-dori. Walking down the avenue has acquired a colloquial expression for it: gin-bura - it is such a national institution!

    Just south of Ginza itself, as you walk toward the bay, you see on you left the red lanterns and long banners of the Kabuki-za, home base for that most thrilling and colorful form of traditional Japanese drama. The first kabuki theater was built in on this site in 1889. Designed to invoke the castle architecture of the Tokugawa period, the theater was destroyed in an air raid in World War II and rebuilt in 1949.

    • Imperial Palace
      If Tokyo can be said to have any center at all, this is it. Today’s Imperial Palace is on the site of Edo castle, where the Tokugawa shogunate ruled Japan for 265 years; it was thereafter home to the emperors of the modern era.

      The palace was almost totally destroyed in the air raids of World War II, then rebuilt in ferroconcrete. This is the least interesting part of what was once the largest system of fortifications in the world, and in any case you can’t get in to see it.

      What you can see are the lovely grounds of the East Garden, the moat and massive stone ramparts, and those few examples of classic Japanese architecture – gates bridges armories, and watchtowers – that have survived since the 17th century.

    • Ueno
      North of the city center, Ueno was chosen in 1628 by the Tokugawa Shugun Hidetaka as the site of a vast temple complex. Called Kan’eiji, it was established on the area’s one prominent hill to protect the capital from evil spirits. Kan’eiji was a seat of great power until 1868 when it became the battleground in the shogunate’s last stand against the imperial army and most of the buildings were destroyed.

      Subsequently, Ueno was turned into Tokyo’s first public park, endowed with all the preferred Western improvements: museums, concert halls, a library, a university of fine arts and a zoo. Undo Should be a stop on any visitor’s itinerary – especially if you happen to be here in mid- April, when the cherry blossoms in the park are glorious.
