Just when people were beginning to say that Ginza's days as the capital of high-end Tokyo fashion were numbered, along came Rei Kawabuko to revitalise the 'hood. The Comme des Garçons founder had already scored a big hit in London with Dover Street Market, an eclectic, cutting-edge store where over 150 brands are curated under one roof. In March 2012, she brought the concept to Tokyo, at a seven-floor shop that can feel more like wandering through an art installation at times. Although Kawakubo is no longer in charge, Dover Street Market Ginza still offers a constantly changing selection of designers, including plenty of one-off collaborations and a predictably strong showing from Comme des Garçons themselves. If you get peckish, Parisian import Rose Bakery has a café on the top floor.
