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.
My favourite spot in Tokyo. It really gives me old Japan vibes, which is quite hard to find in Tokyo. People always see Tokyo as the modern and trendy city as it is. But this is another side of Tokyo which I think is really worth visiting.
Beautiful little arcade full of authentic shops selling tea and teaware, fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, food vendors and sweet shops. There is a lovely kimono shop ... The street and I fact the neighborhood has an old city feel to it.
