You can also buy kabuki memorabilia and souvenirs at stores and stands in the Kobikicho Square, below the ground level. Above the theater is the Kabukiza Gallery, a cultural facility that can be entered for a fee (10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.), and a Japanese garden. Even a short visit will allow you to learn about the depth of kabuki and Japanese culture.

  • Tradition and modernity exist together in this metropolitan downtown area. Not only are there large commercial facilities such as the Ginza Wako, Mitsukoshi, and Matsuya along its main street, Chuo-dori Ave., but also there are prestige brand boutiques and galleries along Namiki-dori St. and other side streets. We recommend that you try "Ginbra": wandering around streets, window shopping, and appreciating the uniquely designed buildings in Ginza.
