Cafe de Ginza Miyuki-kan is a well-known sweets cafe in central Ginza. Open since 1969, this French-style cafe serves sophisticated and delicious desserts including their signature chestnut Mont Blanc. Also worth trying are the mille-feuille and mille-crepe (1000 layer crepe dessert). Lunch sets are available and may include sandwiches, salads, pasta and stews. Service is personal and the individual teapots are a nice touch. The main store is in the Ginza, although there are 5 other shops around the city. The cafe is open late from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. weeknights and until midnight on weekends, seven days a week.

I first visited Japan in 2001 and since then have returned many times. With the efficiency and reliability of its transportation, the graciousness of the people, and the dedication to quality in food and service, Japan has been my standard for modern travel convenience. Every return has reminded me of the remarkable depth and diversity of the country with no two trips being alike, despite retracing steps through familiar neighborhoods. The constant dynamism of the urban centers combined with the emphasis on tradition, sense of aesthetics, and attention to detail make it one of the most exciting places to visit and an inexhaustible land for novel experiences, modern and ancient.
