Discover the history of Japanese urban design in a modern shopping district.
Beginning in the era of the Shogun, and reborn through the tragedies of earthquakes and fires, Ginza has evolved to take on a unique character- a place where tradition meets the latest high fashion. On this tour you'll witness the district's unique character through a visit to a Buddhist temple and the revitalized Kabuki-za theater. They are now neighbors to works by architectural icons such as Renzo Piano, Toyo Ito and Shigeru Ban.
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.
