Everything you Need to Know about Aoyama - Tokyo

Popular with artists, writers and Tokyo’s creative types, Aoyama lies between Akasaka and Shibuya. Known for its iconic architecture in the form of chic boutiques, large department stores and shopping malls, Tokyo’s high-street Omotesando crosses Aoyama in the middle and drips with extravagance on either side. Kotto-dori, literally ‘antique street’ was once the hub of the antiques trade with 700m of shops selling high quality Asian antiques. Today Kotto-dori is relegated to high-end fashion.

Aoyama is also home to the Jingu Ballpark, home of the Yakult Swallows. The stadium seats 48,000 baseball fans. With a capacity of 60,000 Tokyo National Stadium is the place to experience a football match. For over 50 years the stadium has hosted numerous international events, most prominently the 1964 Olympic games. 

The area also presents a collection of wellness centres offering spa treatments, massage, health clubs and specialty restaurants. The National Children’s Castle is well worth a visit for great entertainment. The Nezu Museum is also notable with a 10m Buddha statue.
