The top shopping district in Tokyo(pics) and Japan(pics) and one of the greatest shopping districts in the world, Ginza is particularly fun to roam around on sundays when the streets are closed to vehicular traffic. The name Ginza originates from the silver-coin mint established there during the Edo period.
