Ginbura (Ginza walking around) tips

At Nissan Crossing you can see dream cars and more...

Ginza is one of the most popular places for shopping, dining and just for walking around. About 100 years ago, the students of Keio University started using the word "Ginbura" meaning walking around Ginza. Gin stands for Ginza obviously; Bura came from Japanese word burabura which is used originally to describe the motion of hanging and swinging but in this case to mean walking around from one place to another without any particular purpose. The students at that time walked around Ginza from shop to shop without buying or dining particular thing. Then this Ginbura became very popular pastime on weekends for ordinary people.

In Ginza most shops are gorgeous and expensive, therefore, it used to be hard for ordinary people like us to buy or dine. However by doing Gibura we can feel uplifted.

For example, how about visiting Nissan Crossing, which originally started as Nissan Ginza Gallery but restarted with the new name after renovation since last September? In this world's famous automobile company's showroom they don't display ordinary cars for sale but cars for dream like these.

They say they will be on the market in near future but I am afraid they will not be  for me. "Sorry. Just looking."

However, there is one thing we can afford in this showroom. Cafe Latte with your face printed.

The price is only 400 yen but it gives us uplifting feeling, doesn’t it?

Mack is one of the most amazing guides I have ever had the pleasure of being escorted by on a tour. He worked around all my mental and physical issues to ensure we cover as much as possible on our trip. I was so amazed and truly touched when he sent me a postcard with the Yayoi Kusama Museum when I was in Kyoto. I was really wanting to see the museum but they had no availability so he sent me a p...

I have taken many tours and I must say Mack was one of my most favorite guides. Prior to our trip I let Mack know that we wanted to see as many historical sites as possible and we were okay with any suggestions he may have. Well Mack delivered, we went all over Tokyo and saw most everything we wanted to see and then some. A couple of the highlights were one Mack planned and one I believe we just ...

To put it simply, booking a tour with Mack was the best thing we could have done! We spent two days under Mack’s expert guidance and visited many wonderful sights of Tokyo by foot and rail. Mack taught us how to use the subway and JR lines which set us up beautifully for the rest of our trip to Hiroshima and Kyoto which we did on our own. Mack sent us a well prepared itinerary before we ar...

Mack picked us up from our Airbnb and took us around Tokyo. He came up with a plan to optimize the day we had and completed everything. But most importantly he showed us how to use the subway system to get around in Tokyo. He also planned our trip to Mt Hakone and sent it in writing giving us clear instructions. I would ask Mack for help anytime.

It was a pleasure to have Mack as our tour guide in Tokyo. As first timers in Japan, we had little idea on how we can maximize our stay in Japan. Even if we just booked him for only one and a half day, Mack had been indeed, very helpful in every step of the way. He would go the extra mile to make sure that we take the right train, always updating us and concerned of our whereabouts throughout our...
