Ginza - Tokyo Seasonal Guide


Ginza Shopping Street

Ginza is one of the most popular shopping districts in Japan. It is home to all kinds of stores, from high-brand stores to department stores and UNIQLO stores.
The center is the 4-Chome intersection, marked by the clock tower of the jewelry store WAKO.
On holidays, it becomes a car-free promenade, allowing visitors to stroll the streets in a relaxed atmosphere.

Stores that has lasted for over 100 years in Ginza

Ginza has many long-established sweets and food shops. Some of them have been in business for over 100 years. Here are some of my favorite stores.

Akebono Japanese Sweet Store

Ginza Akebono is a long-established Japanese confectionery store located right on the Ginza 4-chome intersection.
My recommendation is ”Ichigo Daifuku”, the strawberry daifuku, which is sold only from winter to spring. A whole strawberry is contained in the daifuku, and it is sure to make you happy.
The shop also offers a variety of other seasonal Japanese sweets making it a perfect souvenir.



Oosumi Tamaya Japanese Sweets Shop

Osumi Tamaya, founded in 1912, also offers strawberry daifuku.
With thorough attention to ingredients from azuki beans to water, Osumi Tamaya offers authentic Japanese sweets.



Kimuraya beakry Shop

Ginza Kimuraya was founded in 1869. Anpan is a loaf of bread filled with red bean paste. It is a popular bread found in every bakery in Japan. Kimuraya's anpan is characterized by the use of sake seed instead of yeast and the salted cherry blossom in the center. Kimuraya's anpan was once presented to Emperor Meiji. April 4, the day it was presented, is commemorated as "Anpan Day.
