The refined Ginza district was named after silver-coin mint which was established in 1612. It was only following a catastrophic fire that the present Ginza set in motion since 1872, however a few older buildings can be seen even today. The Ginza area is considered to be the most costly in terms of real estate. For instance, just 1 square metre of land in the heart of the district costs nearly 100,000 US dollars.
