Kagurazaka and Fukagawa; two places in Tokyo that are home to people who love ”matsuri” (local festivals), and showcase the sublime texture of their every-day life.
Ginza and Omotesando represent the most stylish streets of Tokyo. These two areas not only share the fact that they are lined with luxury brand shops, but they have a special history and a common DNA. The two areas’ prestigious presentation continues to outshine itself every day with the support of the people who refine and hone their craft there.
The four common elements: shrines, bridges, avenues and Japanese ordinary daily life. As an outsider, an American man who has resided in Japan for over 40 years, and a woman from Aichi Prefecture draw the two cities from their perspective.
Kanda and Daikanyama are two places of Tokyo filled with both rich history and new culture hotspots. See the place called the "holy places for book lovers".
The daily comfort of both Shimokitazawa and Kichijoji, interactions with people, close to beautiful nature. We wish Tokyo to share such an ordinary happiness with visitors.
