Ginza Mitsukoshi Interiors
If you like me enjoy taking pictures of the city from tall places, one of the most convenient places to do this in Ginza is the recently blogged about Mitsukoshi department store. Just go up to at least the 11th floor, wander around and here and there in the corners, near the elevators, in the smoke rooms etc. you will find sections of the wall used as a window and allowing for a decent view of the streets below. There are quite a few places like this around the city but most are not well known to tourists I think. The interior of this department store gets quite beautiful once you get to the uppermost floors, all natural colors, cute cafes, calm surfaces and a much nice atmosphere than the more cramped shopping floors beneath. I do not know if you are actually allowed to take photos in here, but I think it is a nice place and deserve to be better known than it is! I had lunch at the Minori Cafe last summer and it was actually quite good.
