a visit to the Ginza district
You then have the choice of participating in one of two private traditional ceremonies, a Japanese tea ceremony or a calligraphy class. We finish the day with a visit to the Ginza district, known for having the most expensive real estate on earth and home to some of the country’s most prestigious companies, numerous brand shops, department stores, boutiques, bars and restaurants. Here, architects rival in imagination with fashion designers from all over the world, including the Swatch and the Hermes buildings. Also take some time to visit some of Ginza’s famous department stores, especially their basement floors and high-end food courts, where Tokyoites buy their delicacies.

Quite possibly my favourite neighbourhood in Tokyo. It's quiet, away from the modern hustle and bustle, with lots of shops still run by grandmas and grandpas. The area is a perfect introduction of the older, traditional Tokyo before all the glitz and glamour. I love showing people around here, even outside the market district where you'll see what everyday life is like.

This a long old shopping strip dating back many years. A lot of these business are multigenerational and are still in the family. It's a quiet stroll with less tourists but that is slowly changing. One thing to notice is there are no electrical signs, which is a huge change if your coming from Many other Japanese cities. All the shop signs are wooden! It is said that if you find the Seven Lucky Cats then your wish will come true.

This area has a unique, and very different vibe from the usual Shinjuku, Shibuya tourist track. Interesting place to stroll around, and then walk along beside the cemetery. It's hard to say exactly what is interesting, but it just has a nice "Zen" feel and old time Tokyo atmosphere. We had some great drinks and delicious food at one of the little street bars.

Cute and quaint. Lots of tourist merchandise, but much of it is beautiful, and at least a reasonable amount is locally made, but some galleries include work from other parts of Asia. Plus some pretty good local snacks!

The last traditional neighborhood in Tokyo. Nice and crowded during the weekends. Here you can find the famous cat tails.
