Elegantly Pedestrian

Fashionable Ginza turns positively pedestrian on Sunday afternoons. You can sit in the middle of a road formerly occupied by vehicles and do your own thing or just watch the world go by. While dogs in the middle of the street is common in Nepal, it is nice to see one in one of the main drags of Tokyo. Ginza (銀座) means Silver Mint. In the 1600's to 1700's a coin mint was indeed located in this area. These days it is the shops selling famous brands that mint money here.
