南青山 (Minami Aoyama)

Cartier, Minami Aoyama Tokyo JapanEnjoying the finest of what 南青山 (Minami Aoyama) has to offer. Shopping in the luxury brand’s uniquely designed buildings is seriously a treat and I’m loving the architecture!  The Cartier building designed in the shape of a diamond by architect Bruno Moinard, 2005. Then, in the background is the “Jewels of Aoyama” designed by Jun Mitsui and Associates, 2002.

Towers in the Sky – Ginza

Exploring the Ginza neighborhood has turned out to be very fun for obvious reasons. In every little corner of the lavish shopping district you find a Cartier, Bvlgari, Gucci, Dior, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Salvatore Ferragamo, etc. buildings with endless floors of shopping. This is proving to be tough competition for my other favorite shopping district here in Tokyo, the Minami-Aoyama, Omotesando area.
