We spent a day in Ginza during our trip in Tokyo. For a person who has no budget to shop for luxurious goods (like me), spending a day in Ginza is definitely more than enough!
We relied on Google Map to navigate to Ginza from Shinjuku. FYI, besides your pocket wifi, Google Map could literally be your best friend when you travel in Tokyo. It provides really clear direction for you, such as which train line and stations to go for. So, shoutout to Google for such awesome invention!!
Anyway, our first stop in Ginza was Matsuya Ginza.
It's a high-end department store which sells luxurious, branded goods, ranging from apparels to cosmetics and even household goods.
Check out their website for their brand directory!
Every time I come to Japan, I will surely get myself something from Ladurée Cosmetics! With its dainty and delicate packaging, it's really no surprise why girls are so obsessed with it!
Besides cosmetics, Ladurée also carries a range of body products such as body lotion, body soap, hand cream, etc!
Besides Ladurée, you can also find International brands like Jo Malone, YSL, Tom Ford, Jill Stuart, SK-II, and many more!!
Lunch at Tsukiji Sushi-Iwa in level B1, Matsuya Ginza!
The sushi will be freshly-made by the chefs right in front of you upon ordering. I devoured them with so much satisfaction and joy!!
After lunch, we walked around the food department and found Ichigo (strawberry)!!! A dozen of strawberries costs around RM195 in Japan...it's pretty damn pricey, isn't it?!
As we are unable to afford a box of strawberries which cost us almost 200 bucks, we went for a mini box of assorted fruits instead! :P
FRESH and SWEET kiwi, strawberries and blackberries! Now I know why people say you must eat fruits when you are in Japan!!!
Next stop: UNIQLO.
The Uniqlo in Ginza has 12 freaking floors!! We got ourselves some HEATTECH innerwear because it was really cold in Tokyo that time!!
Tea-time in Gucci Cafe.
It's spacious and not packed and crowded as other restaurants. I will definitely recommend this place for those who want to relax in a quiet environment with a cup of good coffee.
The menu itself already looks so "expensive" and "luxurious" wtf. We were like, aiya nevermind la, it's not always that we get to spoil ourselves with expensive desserts lolol.
P.S. Just like most of the cafes and restaurants in Tokyo, each person has to order at least 1 item.
With 2300yen, you can enjoy a Guccilicious set of dessert including a cup of coffee and cake of your choice. We went for the signature Gucci Tiramisu which was really soft and rich in flavour, while being not overly sweet and cloying. It's really worth the price, I would say!
