The Omotesando Street, also called the Champs-Élysées of Tokyo, is a 1km long tree-lined (Zelkova trees) avenue with great shopping facilities. The architecture of flag ship stores from brands like Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Prada, Dior and many more is really unique and worth a visit. In 2005 Omotesando Hills, a huge shopping complex (130 stores), opened its doors for the public. The designer for this building was the famous Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
