The Architectural Grandeur of Omotesando

Omotesando is a tree lined avenue located in Harajyuku and Aoyama district. This regal boulevard was oiginally designed as the official approach to Meiji-Jingu.  Now it's a fashionable strip lined with high-end boutiques. Those designer shops come in designer buildings ( designed by famous architects and recipients of the Pritzker Prize) so also one of the best places in the city to see contemporary architecture.
