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.

表参道 (Omotesandō)

Omotesandō Hills TokyoThere are always hundreds of things to see and do while I’m back in Tokyo but I always make time for a walk down the luxury lined boutiques of 表参道 (Omotesandō), 南青山 (Minami Aoyama), 銀座 (Ginza), and 渋谷区 (Shibuya).

Tokyo OmotesandoMy attempt to head out shopping on a weekday with the hope of escaping the crowds went miserably wrong when I saw this… Perhaps leading Bubble Boy’s life wouldn’t be so terrible as it would at least guarantee a bit of personal space as opposed to this.

Loewe Tokyo OmotesandoSpring’s most covetable accessory if you ask me. Loewe’s amazona bag has me craving.

Nicolai Bergmann Café Tokyo

Before taking off into the friendly skies, it’s always nice to be well rested and relaxed. It also doesn’t hurt to have an extra energy boost.

That’s why I spent my afternoon at Nicolai Bergmann’s Minami Aoyama flagship store, which also happens to have an adorable little café. The gorgeous flower arrangements create the perfect oasis. I just can’t believe I’ll be heading back to London so soon.

Energy boost, I kid you not. This fruity bad boy’s packing a heavy punch of lethal vitamins. Germs be gone!
