Here are area guides and recommended serviced apartments in Ginza for foreigners who are thinking of living in Ginza.
What makes Ginza Area a great place to live in?
Ginza has been a place to see and be seen for many years. Stretching from the southeast edge of the imperial palace grounds, this neighborhood was part of the original center of downtown Tokyo from the Edo period (1603 – 1868) and reconstructed after a great fire in Tokyo destroyed much of the area.
Some of those famous landmarks of Georgian and brick architecture still survive today, and combined with the sleek modern architecture, Chuo dory street has become the home of luxury shopping and Western boutiques, even as the home of Japanese theatre, the Kabuki-za, is at its heart.
Ginza has many flagship stores, department stores (Ginza Mitsukoshi, Matsuya…) but not only shopping district also well known for art galleries.
Some people may have heard about Sukiyabashi Jiro, one of the best sushi restaurants in the world, which is located in Ginza too.
