    Kanagawa Pref. Yokohamashi Naka-ku Shinkou 1-1
    A historical structure built as a government-bonded warehouse during the Meiji and Taisho periods, and nowadays it has become a multipurpose-type facility which holds cafes and restaurants. From the open plaza facing the sea you can look out over Yokohama Port and the scenery of Minato Mirai, while the buildings are illuminated in orange in the evening and from midday, a different fantastic atmosphere is created. A great number of events are held to match the season.

    We visited in the afternoon before the crowds- lots of great shops inside and we were lucky to also have the Christmas market outside. Worth a visit to browse or buy.

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Ginza 3-6-1
    This is a department store located in the Ginza district of Tokyo’s Chuo City whose roots lie in the Tsuruya Gofuku store that was started in Yokohama in 1869. The exterior walls that switched over to all LED-lighting in September 2006 have made the store become a new landmark among Ginza’s night scenery. The store is home to world famous brands such as Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior, as well as select shops carrying high quality items. The food merchandise area that spans two full floors is bustling with visitors returning from work or shopping.

    This department store looks a little bit old school to me. There are very long corridors and the lifts look like you were in the 1970s. Anyway, the variety of products are great!
