Tokyo’s top new people-watching spot, Ginza Place opens its doors
Japan’s smartest shopping district’s latest addition, Ginza Place, is keeping up the area’s posh reputation with its gleaming white exterior and plethora of top brands taking up retail space inside.
The 56-meter high building at Ginza Yon-chome in Tokyo opened its doors on Sept. 24, inviting shoppers in to peruse its 13 stories, including two underground.
Ginza Place’s third-floor cafe boasts a panoramic view of the busy Ginza Yon-chome crossing.
“I hope the companies doing business in Ginza will use this new building to showcase their brands to the world,” said Toshiyuki Ikoma, president and representative director at Sapporo Real Estate Co.
Ginza Place was built by Sapporo Real Estate and other entities to replace the site’s former Sapporo Ginza Building, which was closed due to its aging structure.
