"Ginza Bound"

It took me about 23 years to develop an interest in Ginza, but now that I've been going by there regularly for a year and a half or so, the place has really grown on me... just in time too maybe, since they seem to be working overtime to tear down all the smaller buildings that make Ginza interesting, and replace them with huge stale-air boxes....
Typical Street in Ginza

Yurakucho Station

Hopefully the value of the smaller buildings will be realized before they are all destroyed and Ginza becomes a wasteland of over-sized boxes....
