Hello. I am Risako, guide of this tour.
I’ve living in Tokyo about 20 years.
I really love this city, so I hope you find out how interesting place Tokyo is.
I studied urban planning at university and I often went around to see the buildings around Harajuku.
On my day off, I often visit unique building all over Japan (sometimes in the world!).
Now I’m working as an engineer and guide around Omotesando area on weekends.
In my tour, you can find many architectural works made by famous Japanese architects, such as Tadao Ando, Toyoo Ito, Kengo Kuma etc.
I’m going to tell you their history and what they want to express through their work. In addition, I can introduce hidden unique buildings that are not on the guide book.
By walking through Omotesando, you can understand designs and thought unique in Japan.
I can also introduce interesting shops such as stationary shops, character shops while walking, if you want to know.
I can tell you some delicious eating places as well because I love eating and have sweet tooth.
Let’s enjoy the tour together!
The architecture tour of Omotesando is two hours.
While walking through the main streets around Harajuku and back streets, we will introduce unique buildings.
In addition to famous architecture, we also introduce buildings not listed in the guidebook.
We will visit a total of around 10 buildings in 2 hours(16:00-18:00).
