#TOKYO brings you travel trends based on social media posts written by experienced travelers. In this new episode, we'll take you to Omotesando, just next to Harajuku Takeshita Dori. Omotesando is a tree-lined avenue, serving as the main approach to Meiji Shrine. But it is sometimes referred to as Tokyo's Champs-Elysees: numerous stores, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, including several leading fashion brand shops, stand along the avenue. So, Omotesando has created a good contrast with Takeshita Dori targeting teenagers. This area is also home to some of Tokyo's most interesting architecture including Omotesando Hills by Tadao Ando, and Nezu Museum by Kengo Kuma.
