Ginza

From Detective Conan Wiki
Kaitou Kid appears on an intersection in the 4th Block of Ginza.

Ginza (銀座, "Silver mint"[1]) is a business and entertainment district in the Chūō Ward of Tokyo and appears as a setting several times in the works of Gosho Aoyama, implied to be close to Beika. Most of the time it is alternatively referred to in his stories as Kinza (錦座, "Brocade mint"). In the movies of Detective Conan and other spin-off media, it is sometimes also called Dōza (銅座, "Copper mint").

The most important place of it in the stories almost aways is the (equally real) 4th block of the district with its intersection surrounded by shopping centers, as well as a promenade, which is festively decorated for Christmas time and in real life actually is located in front of the Tokyo Station in the Marunouchi District of Chiyoda Ward.
