We often count our calendar years using “Gengo.” Recently, we entered the Reiwa period. A Gengo can be longer or shorter than others, so some people experience several eras. Now that we are in the Reiwa period, people who know the Showa period have lived through three eras – Showa, Heisei and Reiwa.
This time let us feel the Showa air in the middle of Ginza in Reiwa. Let us start at the Miharabashi Intersection, located east of the Ginza 4-chome Intersection on Harumi Dori.
