Image 5/74 for "History of Ginza"

Tue 2010/12/21 12:33 JST 881775 Views

Photo taken right after the The Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923 (Taisho 12) which pretty much destroyed the entire area. Ginza then underwent a huge reconstruction effort which was heavily financed by the government. Most of the brick buildings were also demolished.
The building under construction on the right is Matsuya and opposite is where the Apple store is right now.
