Tokyo’s Ginza district is renowned for its incredible shopping, and its luxury fashion stores are also great places to go for something to eat. Many of the biggest brands offer their own cafés and restaurants, and our gallery charts four of the best fashion eateries in Japan. From tweed bento boxes at Chanel’s rooftop café to indulgent lobster dishes at the Bulgari dining room and British ales at Dunhill’s gentlemen’s club, discover this luxury combination of food and style in Japan.
Le Jardin de Tweed at Chanel
This rooftop terrace café by the Beige Alain Ducasse Tokyo restaurant is open from 1 April to 29 October. Customers can enjoy the Chanel bento box, decorated with gold tweed detailing and filled with macaroons, sandwiches and other miniature Parisian treats. Only 30 are available each day, however, so get there early to order one.
