I only had a short stop-over in Tokyo my last time there, but really wanted to see the new Mikimoto Ginza 2 pink building, which is just around the corner from the main Mikimoto Ginza store.
Ginza Tiffany Display
My husband and I got caught in the rain after I took a video of window washers at Mikimoto's main store..
A few Japanese ladies still wear the traditional kimono. This lady was lucky to have an umbrella in the Tokyo rain. The rain was hard, but only lasted a few minutes.

While we were waiting under a store front next to Mikimotos I looked across the street and sure enough, there was a Tiffanys. I then remembered Audrey Hepburn once standing outside of a Tiffanys with a brown bag breakfast and eating it in her famous movie, "Breakfast at Tiffanys".
Kari Breakfast at Tiffanys
"Ummmmm," I thought to myself, "I have my McDonald's breakfast that I decided not to eat, in my purse. I could also have 'Breakfast at Tiffanys'". So....here I am...breakfast at Tiffany in Ginza. (You'll need to look closely to see the Tiffany sign in back.)
Tiffany Ginza Store
The curtains at Tiffany in Ginza were most lovely and interesting, sort of a gauze type fabric crinkled up in places.

I poked my head in but the sales girls didn't speak much English, so just took a quick look around.

Ginza is a very upper class shopping area. You'll see designer fashions passing you on the street and classy window displays.
With flashy overhead videos and big displays the corner by Mikimoto and Tiffanys resembles Times Square.
Get off the subway at the Ginza stop and you'll see what I mean.
