Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku – A Fusion of Trees and Architecture Floating above the Avenue [ENG] Omotesando an avenue lined with the flagship stores of international fashion brands is one of JapanÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foremost fashion streets. As the frontal (Ã¢â‚¬Å“OmoteÃ¢â‚¬Â) approach to the wooded compound of Meiji Shrine the avenue is lined on both sides with zelkova trees. The branches of the trees form a canopy over the avenue and provide an experience of shopping under sunlight filtering through trees. An environment that blends architectural spaces with spaces under treesÃ¢â‚¬â€such is the special character of Omotesando we felt and we therefore proposed a style of environment giving emphasis to this special character.
