Ginza (銀座) is a place in Chūō Ward, Tokyo, named after the silver-coin mint (Gin = silver, za = mint) established here in 1612 during the Edo period.
Modern Ginza began in 1872 when, after a devastating fire, the district was rebuilt with two- and three-storey Georgian brick buildings designed by the English architect Thomas Waters along with a shopping promenade on the street, from the Shinbashi bridge to the Kyōbashi bridge in the southwestern part of Chūō Ward.
As well as being an entertainment and shopping district, Ginza also houses many of Tokyo's corporate offices and the Foreign Correspondents' Club of Japan.
