Aoyama - Gaienmae (Quick Tokyo Guide)
I just had another roll of film developed, which I had kind of forgotten about so these were taken a few months ago but I thought I'd share as a quick mini Tokyo guide. These are all from the area of Aoyama/Gaienmae, all very close by so you can visit all in an hour or two, all very lovely.
1&2: mina perhonen piece - just....love it!!
3: Watarium Museum - small but hosts many great exhibitions, also has a great little museum shop on the ground floor and a cafe downstairs.
4-7: Keith Haring & Barry McGee-created graffiti opposite the Watarium museum - excellent!!
8-10: Pan to Espresso to. - A cute little cafe that serves good coffee and panini.
How to get to Aoyama/Gaienmae: The closest station to this area is Gaienmae on Ginza line (exit 3) but you can easily walk to/from Omotesando.
Other than the guide I have another recommendation, my friend and a talented Tokyo based zakka/product designer Ros' new website polkaros.com has been launched! She now has a new web shop where she sells her cute products with free shipping worldwide (how generous!)!! And....the web design and development was all done by... me!! I hope you visit her new website & shop and enjoy the total cuteness of the polkaros world :)
