Ginza has a reputation of not being the friendliest neighbourhood for first-time visitors, but it can also be highly addictive once you get a hang of it. With 101 things to do in Ginza, we reveal another side of Tokyo’s centre of luxury, as we forgo the obvious boutiques and exorbitantly priced restaurants in favour of spots like the café where John and Yoko once sat down for tea, the birthplace of katsu curry, a vintage apartment building turned into a collection of galleries, and the luckiest (possibly) lottery stand in town. And if you're looking for more specific things to do, check out our full Tokyo shopping guide, picks of the best sushi restaurants, or top outdoor dining spots.
