Omotesando as a fashion shoppers paradise


Omotesando is another great shopping destination next to Ginza for hardcore fashion shoppers. But unlike Ginza, which is considered as a large district of malls and branded store flagships in Japan, Omotesando is a smaller counterpart in the form of a straight street path filled with high-class international boutiques and outlets. Omotesando is a street within Jingumae in Shibuya, Tokyo. 


A multitude of upscale branded fashion outlets for bags, shoes, clothes, accessories, and eyewear can be found in Omotesando. Such include notable brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Gap, Chanel, Dolce&Gabbana, Prada, and Dior. Electronic gadgets providers such as Apple also got its own branch in Omotesando. Given the variety of brand outlets present, Omotesando is also often referred to as the "Champs-Élysées" of Tokyo.

Omotesando as an architectural showcase


The omotesando shopping street is at its best during night time where well-thought and creatively crafted lighting from each store gives the street a better atmosphere, not to mention a more fulfilling shopping experience. The place is also considered as an architectural showcase in itself due to the magnificent view produced by several well-architectured exterior and interior designs of stores lined up in the street of Omotesando.


Access and nearby places


The dazzling street path of Omotesando, when walked down, leads to the famed Meiji Jingu shirine, one of Tokyo's tourist destinations. Walking down to the other end of the street leads to the Omotesando Station.

My name is Grant I lived more than 10 years in Japan. I graduated University and translation school in Tokyo. I am fluent in Japanese. I have a degree in Asian studies and have expert-level knowledge of Japanese culture and history. I have memorized the JR rail system across all of Japan, I use the same train timetable calculators as the station staff, and I have experience using bullet train passes that are exclusive to foreign visitors. I can optimally navigate the Tokyo underground and maximize value from a Tokyo metro pass and also understand Tokyo above ground which will allow for seamless transitions between different metro stations and landmarks with minimal backtracking. *There will be a price revision at the end of June* My tour fee is Half-Day Tour: 20,000yen for 1-5hours Full-Day Tour: 40,000yen for 5-10hours The time transiting to and from your hotel for pick up or drop off within Tokyo 23wards does not count towards the time. I am also able to guide historical sites and cities such as Kyoto, Kanazawa, Nikko, and Kamakura on request if you pay my rail fare.

I’m so excited to have a chance to show you around my favorite spots in Kanagawa prefecture. I was born in Kanagawa. I spent my whole school life, including university, here in Kanagawa. I worked as a high school English teacher here for 40 years. I love Kanagawa so much. We have many interesting tourist spots, like Hakone, Kamakura, Enoshima and Yokohama. I got my tour guide license in English in 2009. I am still an English teacher. To give an interesting and impressive lesson to young high school students, I’ve learnt and gathered many kinds of information. I also have a license to teach social studies, so I have a wide range of knowledge about Japanese culture and history. I’m sure to provide you an interesting tour.
