Architecture Tour with English Guide in Ginza
Ginza, byword for luxury and elegance across Japan for well over a century has gone through several urban planning movements from the shogun’s time in early 1600s.
After the big fire of 1872, the Meiji government seized the opportunity to demonstrate Japan’s aspirations to join Western civilization.
So then when did the area develop as the premier site for consumption, fashion, chic and elegance? The architecture definitely helped to create the character of Ginza passing down its history to the future generation.

Starting from Tsukiji Hongwan-ji temple adjacent to Tsukiji station.
After visiting the newly built Kabuki theater (2013) inheriting the traditional style from the past generation we will move on to the most outstanding Nakagin Capsule tower from the Metabolism movement.
We then continue on to Nicolas G. Hayek Center, Maison Hermes, Tokyu Plaza Ginza, Mikimoto Ginza 2, the Okuno Building and finish up at the intersection of Ginza 4-chome where the Wako building stands.
