On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, I made my way down to Ginza to take a look around. This is the home of excessive spending, where one square meter of land costs about 10 million yen and the coffee can run $10 a cup.
As I said earlier, Ginza is a place to see and be seen. This includes pets as well.
For shoppers, Ginza is probably high on the destination list. But as a tourist with some free time on Sunday, it's worth coming by to walk down Chuo Dori, look at the people, and maybe do a little window shopping. In fact, it's close enough to Akihabara that you could do both in one day if you had the energy.
Ginza is big enough that you can get there via several stations on several lines. You can take JR lines or the Yurakucho subway line to Yurakacho Station for the easiest access, or walk from Shinbashi or Tokyo stations. The Ginza subway station (Ginza, Hibiya, and Marunouchi lines) is closer, for those riding the Metro. Chuo Dori is best visited on Saturday (after 2 pm) or Sunday (after 12 pm), when the road is closed and people are out walking. But visit any day to see high-class locals with free time heading to or from lunch.
