The Ginza 4 Chome intersection is home to Nissan Crossing, a showcase of some of Nissans’ cars and technology. Nissan is the second largest automotive manufacturer, after Toyota and in front of Honda. Nissan has a large stake in French manufacturer Renault and employs over 120,000 people around the globe.
Some of Nissan’s products include the Maxima, Tiida, X-Trail and Cube. Many of Nissan’s products are exported worldwide, while some are designed for the Japanese market only.
Previously known as the Nissan Gallery, the space was a small showcase of some of this manufacturers finest automotive products. After several years of redevelopment a brand new complex was built and relaunched in 2017 as Nissan Crossing. Today the complex spans several floors with a number of exhibition vehicles and interactive displays where you can learn a little more about Nissan’s extensive range of automotive products and how they care for the environment. The building is now also home to the crossing cafe and several floors are currently used by Sony as their Ginza Product showcase due to the Sony Building redevelopment on the next block.
Throughout the year, the gallery is home to several displays, including art shows and design exhibitions. A small area of the centre is available for children to draw and colour cars.
Nissan Crossing is on the corner of the Ginza 4 Chome intersection, one of the most photographed streets in Tokyo. The centre is well worth a visit while in the area to see the jewel like cars. Admission to the centre is free.
You can easily get to the centre from the Ginza Subway Station (G09) on the Ginza or Hibiya lines. If you are travelling on the Marunouchi line exit the C3 or C4 gates. The closest JR line is Yurakucho Station on the Keihin-Tohoku Line, Yamanote Line and Tokyo Metro Yurakucho Line (Y18) which is about an 8 minute walk away.
