OMOTESANDO: Your Second Home to Louis Vuitton and Prada

Omotesando as a fashion shoppers paradise

 

Omotesando is another great shopping destination next to Ginza for hardcore fashion shoppers. But unlike Ginza, which is considered as a large district of malls and branded store flagships in Japan, Omotesando is a smaller counterpart in the form of a straight street path filled with high-class international boutiques and outlets. Omotesando is a street within Jingumae in Shibuya, Tokyo. 

 

A multitude of upscale branded fashion outlets for bags, shoes, clothes, accessories, and eyewear can be found in Omotesando. Such include notable brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Gap, Chanel, Dolce&Gabbana, Prada, and Dior. Electronic gadgets providers such as Apple also got its own branch in Omotesando. Given the variety of brand outlets present, Omotesando is also often referred to as the "Champs-Élysées" of Tokyo.

Omotesando as an architectural showcase

 

The omotesando shopping street is at its best during night time where well-thought and creatively crafted lighting from each store gives the street a better atmosphere, not to mention a more fulfilling shopping experience. The place is also considered as an architectural showcase in itself due to the magnificent view produced by several well-architectured exterior and interior designs of stores lined up in the street of Omotesando.

 

Access and nearby places

 

The dazzling street path of Omotesando, when walked down, leads to the famed Meiji Jingu shirine, one of Tokyo's tourist destinations. Walking down to the other end of the street leads to the Omotesando Station.
