Tokyo Weekend, Part III

Ginza is made for strolling and Sundays.

On Sundays, Ginza is made for strolling.

Ginza was the highlight of this trip.  I can't wait to bring Laura back with me next time.  Harry Winston, LV, Cartier, Bulgari...she'll love it.

Each Sunday the busiest part of Ginza Street is closed off, tables are set up and families casually stroll up and down the wide street in front of some of the most expensive real estate in the world.

I had the morning and a couple hours of the afternoon to wander around Ginza before heading back to the hotel for the 90 minute bus journey back to the airport.  Tokyo is huge and I still don’t have a good idea about the layout of the city, but Ginza was about a 15 minute subway ride from Shinjuku station.

Just in case you're lost.

It was a cool Sunday, around 10C/50F, so I imagine it gets much busier on warmer days.

Although I was tempted to browse the 4-story Apple store, the street was much more interesting.
