Ginza is the paradise of any street photographer, with charming people walking around the bright streets, ladies in kimono walking in a fast pace and the way people slow down walking around the main streets, closed to the cars during the weekends.
But that’s not the only reason why I just love this neighbourhood.
Ginza is where I use to go to get inspired because it’s where you can find lots of art/photo galleries like Nikon, Canon, Ricoh andLeica.
At this little district I could appreciate the beautiful prints from Michael Kenna in Veneza, at BLD Gallery, Elliott Erwitt in Paris, at Chanel Nexus Hall and the great work of the Brazilian photographer Julio Bittencourt, who won the Leica Oskar Barnack Award few years ago, at the Leica Ginza Shop.
To me, spending an afternoon from one gallery to the other and, at the end of the day, walk around Ginza photo shooting is pretty close to what I would call a perfect day!
