 Gainmane and Aoyama-itchome


The location of Gainmane and Aoyama-itchome is not far from Omotesando. Both are high-class neighborhoods with impressive streets like Icho Namiki Avenue, also known as “Golden Street” because there are golden yellow ginkgo trees along the road.

 Futako- Tamagawa


Futako- Tamagawa is known as the oldest suburbs in Japan where rich people began to move from various regions in Tokyo and neighboring cities. This place is the location of one of the first malls in Japan called Takashimaya, a famous retail store that was built in the late ’60s that sells items primarily related to weddings, such as dresses, jewelry, decorations, perfumes, and so on.
