Virtual/Live Treasure Hunting in Architecture Tour of Ginza- Time in Japan-time

Ginza, Japan
Get Planning! →

This is a virtual Ginza tour using Zoom, which we can use to have fun conversations with you! Being located in the center of Tokyo, various trendy phenomena were born from here over the years. This fashionable town continued to evolve while retaining its traditional values. The buildings in Ginza tell a lot about its character, and you can really understand the message left behind by their architects. Let’s find out how our modern architecture is able to be matched with the olden-style Tokyo charm and ambiance. After our 1 hour online tour, you will be able to feel invigorated by the lively town of Ginza. Today, I would like you to become like a bird and look over the stunning view of these buildings from above. During this online tour, we will not be sticking solely to one-way communication, and your viewer participation is highly appreciated. We will also conduct quizzes so that we can share a fun moment. Our special gift is exclusively for the tour participants.
