[Tokyo] Omotesando 表參道

without comments

Omotesando is filled with shops and fun things to look at, you can easily spend an afternoon here. This area is known as one of the foremost architectural showcase streets in the world, where fashion flagship stores (LV, Prada, Dior, Tod’s, etc.) compete with each other for the most eye-catching design. Omotesando also has a few side streets that feature a range of more affordable trendy cafes and boutique shops. I came here right after a visit to Meiji Shrine, and couldn’t leave until late into the evening. Here are some snippets of my afternoon, starting with Omotesando Hills, designed by Ando Tadao and built at a cost of $330 million.

MOMA Design Store, the first one outside of NY.

Cerfeuil, a jam store that I totally fell in love with.

Pudding jam, lovely! Come in different flavors of pudding too.

Anniversaire.

The hustle and bustle.

Old ladies snapping pictures of the Christmas lights.

Dior, all lit up.
