The Japan Summer theme continues and this time we take a look at Ginza - a swanky modern area where a load of luxury fashion brands (Japanese and Western) can be found together with a load of restaurants and coffee shops too to help shoppers recharge their depleted energy cells before continuing to shop or being dragged around shopping.

Folks who want to visit Ginza should go on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon where the main street is pedestrianized for a most pleasant walk. Its just sooo peaceful. Get off at Ginza station.

More photos from the Summer series listed up below.

"Chikan" [痴漢]ちかん] is the word for a Pervert who goes round groping women. When it happens, many women keep quiet and people around pretend not to see.
A friend of mine was groped on the train and she shouted out asking for help but she was actually told to shut up...
This poster is calling upon the citizens to be brave and raise their voice when they see somebody being groped.

But then there are some women taking advantage of this situation claiming that they have been groped where they can get their victim to pay up a fine on the spot.
