Enjoy Ginbura in Ginza's famous "pedestrian paradise"!

2021.Mar.1

Since the Meiji era (1868-1912), Ginza has been a fashionable district full of Western culture, lined with Western-style restaurants, bakeries, and Western furniture and clothing stores. Many people flocked to this cutting-edge district, and soon it became fashionable to walk around Ginza without any particular purpose in mind. In the Taisho era (1912-1926), the term "Ginbura" was coined to describe wandering around Ginza. After World War II, Ginza-dori Avenue was extensively renovated into a modern street, and in 1970 (Showa 45), for the first time, a "pedestrian paradise" using the roadways as pedestrian-only walkways took place and became popular. The pedestrian paradise in Ginza, which is now a familiar sight, is held on weekends and holidays on Chuo-dori Avenue from the Ginza-dori guchi intersection to the Ginza 8-chome intersection. On a day off, why not take a leisurely stroll along the wide street and rediscover the charm of historic Ginza?
