Ginza Architecture

8 years ago by in Travel

Ginza is one of Tokyo’s famous shopping districts where you will find boutiques of the world’s most exclusive and expensive fashion and jewellery brands. As such Ginza, along with Omotesando, is a focal point of Japanese Architecture and contemporary design. World famous Japanese and foreign Architects have designed some outstanding buildings for these fashion brands. There is the Mikimoto 2 Building by Toyo Ito, Maison Hermes by Renzo Piano, Shiseido Ginza by Ricardo Bofill, Nicholas G Hayak Center by Shigeru Ban, Louis Vuitton by Jun Aoki to name a few. Ginza is certainly a highlight for any Architect travelling to Tokyo and an essential part of our Japan Architecture Tours.
