Aoyama Fashion Street
After the Aoyama Gujo Odori, my wife and I walked to short distance to the Aoyama Fashion Street.
There are several very unique and interesting designer store buildings in the area. The most striking is the Prada Boutique Aoyama, with its glass structure designed by Swiss architect duo, Herzog & de Meuron in 2003.
Next to Prada Aoyama is Cartier, designed by Jun Mitsui and Associates and completed in 2002.
Beside Cartier is another unique building (Chloe).

The Ao Building, a newly opened retail and dining complex, makes quite an architectural statement designed by Sakakura Associates, and just recently completed on March 2009.
