Ginza

I went to Ginza in Tokyo with my friends. It was very hot day of summer ending . However, many people walked around and enjoyed shopping. I am a one of them.
Ginza is a traditional Japanese commercial town and is known as sophisticated place in Tokyo. This area is downtown in Tokyo. We can go shopping , eat something or see movies and "Kabuki".
There are some bland shops , Chanel, Tiffany, Loewe or Apple store, etc. And there are some shop of long standing (Shinise) . New and traditional Japanese culture is mixed.
We thought Ginza was a town that especially adults can enjoy. However, it is changing . Now new buildings and department stores will be opened or redecorated for young people.
Now Ginza might be trendy place.
