Do As Tokyo Does Abandoned Ginza

  Recent Do As Tokyo Does:

What if one day, for no particular reason, nobody at all came to Ginza?

Being one of the major shopping and business districts of not only Tokyo, but all of Japan, the chances of this happening are extremely miniscule. However you can't argue that the chance does still exist, stranger things have happened. For example there is a guy in the Guiness Book of Records who was struck by lightning 7 times during his lifetime.

Millions of people work, shop and play in the Ginza area daily, but what if all the shopkeepers decided to take the day off, the business people called in sick, the shoppers said to themselves, 'meh, maybe tomorrow', and the few people that actually live in the area happened to spend the whole day indoors with the curtains drawn, and all of this happened on the same day? It'd be interesting to know how the odds of this rank in relation to getting hit by lighting 7 times.

Then you'd have to ask yourself, 'If on this certain day, nobody at all came to Ginza, would anybody ever know about it?' Kinda like a tree falling in the woods and making no sound if nobody was around to hear it.

But as luck would have it, one person did come to Ginza on this fateful day. The truth it seems, is indeed stranger than fiction...
