Time Out says

Hidden amidst Ginza’s glitzy shopping malls and boutiques is a time capsule, an apartment built in the Showa era (1926-1989) that’s a prime example of early modernist architecture. The Ginza Okuno building is beautifully preserved – don’t miss the manually operated elevator – with many of the lots now turned into antique shops and art galleries. For a glimpse into what life was like back then, walk into Room 306, which was left as is since its last tenant.
