"An extraordinary and charming production: The work is ostensibly an illustrated history of the Ginza, one of the most upmarket shopping districts of Tokyo. The name is derived from a silver-coin mint which was located here during the Edo period. In the Meiji era it was developed as a shopping and entertainment district with a Western flair and became famous for its department stores, bars, and coffeehouses during the early 20th century. Large parts were destroyed during the firebombing in 1945. However, Tokyoites retained their affection for the place and it was soon rebuilt."--Maggs
