Shopping Street

In 1932, it was named "Sunamachi Ginza" after the Ginza-Dori shopping street, which was said to be the best in Japan at that time. It is one of the three major “Ginza shopping streets” along with Togoshi Ginza and Jujo Ginza. The street, which is about 670m long, is lined with about 130 stores, from medical clinics and fresh food stores, delicatessens, and preschools.

The best experience for the visitors here is to enjoy eating while walking around the street, just like going around festival stalls. There is a wide variety of food such as yakitori (grilled chicken skewers), oden hot pot, Chinese dumplings, croquettes, fruits, etc., so you will surely find something that you want to eat. One of the attractions is the townscape surrounded in the nostalgic atmosphere of the Showa era. The store owners also talk to you in a friendly manner, so even people who visit for the first time can have a lively conversation like they are regulars. It's a cozy atmosphere that makes you feel warm.

On the 10th of every month, Bakaneichi (a crazy cheap market) is held where many products are sold at a discount price. There are also many events such as the Tanabata Festival (the Star Festival) held in August.
Let's visit one of the leading shopping streets in Tokyo, which is called "Humanity Shopping Street" and "Shopping Street which not to be missed".
