This article features three places in Ginza, enthusiastically introduced by the Japanese stylist Die-Co★. Find refined souvenirs at Armani Casa, try on a stylish kimono at Ginza motoji and taste authentic Napolitan cuisine at Ippolito.

Ginza is a place where you can see many people wearing fashionable clothes passing by.

With a range of garments spanning from suits to kimono and casual clothes, the people who have their own style are the ones who give Ginza its refinement. Mr. Die-co★ is one of these people. A stylist active in a wide area of genres, he is standing out among the stylish people in Ginza.

He comes to Ginza often in matters related to work, and it seems that he also comes here in his private time to find inspiration. He enthusiastically introduced to us stores where one can choose good quality clothes, as well as an Italian restaurant where one can rest after work or shopping.

PROFILE

Die-co★
Stylist. Featuring in magazines, on television and in movies. The one who came up with the spell of his name (pronounced “Dai-co”) was none other than photographer Nan Goldin. Popular for his deep knowledge about fashion and for his refined styling.

SPOT 1. Armani/Casa

Armani / Ginza Tower hosts both the clothes boutique and the home collection on the fourth floor - the Armani / Casa, which definitely deserves a visit. All the items to be found here - furniture, home accessories, lighting, rugs - have been selected under the supervision of Giorgio Armani. The whole variety of high-quality product is inspiring us to aim for a refined lifestyle.

This is one of Die-co★’s favorite spaces. He appreciates the elegance of this place, where one can feel how much Armani, the emperor of fashion, cares for lifestyle.

Textile materials which can be used for various purposes

A simple, yet luxurious space. You can feel the essence of Italian luxury in this space.

It is a space where you can relax and feel the same refinement as in the designer’s fashion identity. You can find here things that are ideal to take back as souvenirs, such as ebony chopsticks and other items, says Die-co★.

SPOT 2. Ginza Motoji Men’s Kimono

In Ginza there are many centuries old clothes stores, and each has their own distinctive features. Ginza Motoji, with a total of three stores in Ginza, is a brand that creates kimonos that are always in pace with the present age.

Ginza Motoji Men’s Kimono is one of the rare shops in Japan specialized in men’s kimono. The utmost care is put in the quality of the thread of which the materials are made, allowing for refined styling. They assist the customers in trying on kimonos. Receiving advice from Mr. Motoji Keita, the second generation owner of Ginza Motoji, Die-co★ has chosen a kimono with a model to his liking and tries it on.

A kimono with a beautiful color gradation. Even just put on, we can imagine how it would look when worn.

A lineup of original coats made of cashmere and wool, which are popular every year.

It is a store that allows the customers to find their own way of enjoying kimonos.

SPOT 3. Ippolito

Ippolito is a restaurant specialized in Napolitan cuisine, located in the proximity of Kabuki-za, Higashi Ginza. The moment you enter the restaurant you'll see the wood kiln where the chef, trained in his home country, prepares authentic Italian food.

He baked for us a Pizza Marguerita at the kiln he is so proud of.

Whenever he travels abroad, Die-Co★ likes to taste the local shellfish. This time also, he ordered a shellfish and rapeseed flower soté as an appetizer. The characteristic aroma of this dish is given by the olive oil and the dried mullet roe.

The rigatoni pasta with bamboo shoots is absolutely delicious!

With plenty of experience of traveling to Italy, Die-Co★ happily does conversation with the Italian staff, while enjoying the rigatoni and pizza. Adding a glass of white wine to these dishes makes it a very satisfying dinner.

In Conclusion

"Ginza has been a place that gave birth to many aspects of Japanese culture, from literature to art. It is a place where one can find luxury items from abroad, but also a place that preserves the urban atmosphere of the old days. I look forward to seeing how this part of the city develops further", says Die-Co★. The places featured in this article exist only in Ginza.
