Ginza for Japan Travel Packages (

World Famous "Ginza" (in Japanese; Ginza 銀座).  Some people call it "The Ginza" but the Japanese themselves just call it "Ginza".  Ginza today is basically an upscale shopping district that is pretty near Tokyo Station (just a stop away). On Sundays (and some Saturdays) they close the main street to cars so it becomes a pedestrian paradise. The entire street is filled with high-end department stores, boutiques, resturaunts and "nightlife" establishments. Many popular fashion designs have their "flagship" shops here like Chanel, Dior, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Sony, Apple and Ricoh with major department stores such as Hankyu, Seibu and Matsuya taking up large chunks of the main street. Don't expect to find any "deals" here, Ginza is strictly for the posh and high end "real" quality stuff.
