The Yonchome Intersection
Ginza Yonchome (often spelled as 4-chome) intersection holds the record of having Japan's most expensive land value. When looking over the intersection, you'll immediately notice the Wako Clock Tower - the symbol of Ginza and therefore the perfect photo spot! The present clock tower is actually the second one but the first one was completed in 1894. The present clock tower replaced the old one in 1932. Inside Wako, clocks and jewelry are sold abundantly, which make wonderful Ginza-themed souvenirs, so why not go for some shopping after getting your perfect shot?
- Address 4-5-11 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo 104-8105
The Liveliness of Tsukiji Outer Market
Tsukiji Jonai (Inner) Market has relocated to Toyosu in October 2018, however, the Jogai (Outer) Market continues to be just as open and busy as we know and love. Walk around every corner of the streets extending in all directions and find your favorite angle for your perfect shot of lively and cheerful day to day life at the market! The streets are narrow, though, so you should pay attention to not get in busy shoppers' way.
Taking Photos of the Shinkansen
The Shinkansen, Japan's own bullet train, is a famous figurehead of the country's technology. Let us show you a perfect photo spot where you can see the Shinkansen winding its way through the skyscrapers of central Tokyo. The spot is the rooftop garden of the Tokyo Kotsu Kaikan, located in front of Yurakucho Station. Although it is called rooftop garden, it is in fact on the third floor. The garden is called Yurakucho Colline (Colline is French for "hill") and if you wait for a while on the wooden terrace on the Yurakucho Station side, you can capture the Shinkansen up close while it rushes by.
