This morning we would be heading into Ginza in the heart of Tokyo on our way to the Imperial Palace.

Ginza (銀座) is Tokyo’s most famous upmarket shopping, dining and entertainment district, featuring numerous department stores, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, night clubs and cafes.

Here we were standing just outside the Apple store and the light was spectacular. Light was being reflected down onto this beautiful tree and this brushed metal wall. It just felt like the tree was aglow with life and beauty. How could I not take a photo :).

Note: These photographs (especially the wider shots) look much better when larger. To see larger versions in an inline overlay slideshow gallery viewer click any of the images.

One square meter of land in the district’s center is worth over ten million yen, making it some of the most expensive real estate in Japan.

The name Ginza comes after the establishment of a silver-coin mint (Ginza means “silver mint” in Japanese) which was built here in 1612 during the Edo period.

We spent a while wandering the streets, checking out some stores and having lunch before heading towards the Imperial Palace grounds.
