Omotesando Dori

For a taste of unique modern architecture and luxury boutiques, stroll down stately Omotesando Dori. Start or end at Omotesando station at one end and Meiji Jingu-mae station at the other. Weekends, the sidewalks are packed with people but you can also enjoy an excellent used kimono outdoor market at the corner opposite Tokyu Plaza (with the crazy mirrored entrance). The street is extremely popular around Christmas when the trees lining the street are illuminated in an elegantly understated kind of way. Fun fact: sandwiched between Louis Vitton and Burberry’s you’ll find neither boutique nor restaurant, but Tokyo Union Church, one of Tokyo’s oldest English speaking Christian churches.
