highlights

Highlights

highlights

La Collezione Building designed by world-famous architect Tadao Ando. Looks ordinary from the outside, but inside, features design elements like spiral staircases and winding corridors, and is full of twists and turns.

highlights

Tod's Omotesando This building's outer facade was designed to look like a tree stretching upward into the sky-specifically, like one of the Japanese zelkovas that line Omotesando. Designed by famous Japanese architect Toyo Ito. The concrete walls supports the entire structure of the building by themselves.

highlights

Dior Omotesando This building was designed by Sanaa, the architectural firm headed by Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa. Its facade is a layered combination of glass and acrylic plastic designed to resemble the pleats of a skirt when reflected by the light.

highlights

Imperial Hotel This high-class hotel has a restaurant where you can enjoy a Brazilian breakfast. Contains ingredients like cashew apple juice, acai yogurt, cassava cake and is healthy and nutrient-rich.

highlights

Osklen A Brazilian brand shop located in Ginza 6. The brand's T-shirts, dresses, bags, shoes and more are designed to represent Brazil's nature, culture and modern art. Some of its most standout items are designed with the skin of a freshwater fish called pirarucu.

highlights

Barbacoa This restaurant features churrasco, that famous juicy Brazilian meat dish. All-you-can-eat lunch menu includes beef, pork, chicken, sausage, salad, dessert and more.
