And this is Ginza in 2006 (Heisei 18) with the Hattori Clock Tower in the center of the photo. The land in Ginza is the most expensive in Japan with 1 square meter costing 25,000,000 yen around the Ginza 4 chome area. Not only is the land expensive, the brand shops will require giving up a few limbs too if you want to buy stuff. The restaurants and cafe prices are reasonable however.
This photo was plucked from the Ginza Xmas post where you can see more Ginza by night photos.
