A symbol of the city: Ginza, Tokyo

Ginza, Tokyo

Ginza is noted for the capital of shopping spots in Tokyo and have a sense of elegance.

In the center of Ginza is standing this building.

This somewhat classic building was built in 1932 and miraculously unfired by the U.S. attack in 1945. After World War 2, it was temporally used by Allied Occupation.

It have rung on the hour every hour, like a bell tower, watching for the city tenderly.

You know much about Ginza, perhaps more than me! Yes. the police box still exists. There is a cafe in front of it. There is a Nissan car shop on the other side.

I am now in Tsukiji, just two minutes walk to the famous Tsukiji Fishing Market, the largest market.... Every morning I see people waiting in line in front of the famous sushi shop, and go to a curry shop in the market....
