A new luxury commercial building called Oak Omotesando will open on April 4, 2013, in this exquisite part of Tokyo. The new luxury complex will cater for fashion and lifestyle lovers who adore top notch brands. At the same time, quality restaurants will provide ample opportunities to relax and enjoy the new environment provided by Oak Omotesando.

The Omotesando area alongside Aoyama, Harajuku, and Shibuya, provides a mega hub for fashion lovers and people who adore a quality lifestyle. The crème de la crème of exquisite Japanese and international brands can be found throughout the Omotesando district. Therefore, major companies are attracted by the powerful environment of this exclusive part of Tokyo.


On the ( Fashion Headline website it is stated about Oak Omotesando that “The complex harmonizes with the zelkova-lined Omotesando Boulevard and its neighboring structures and is aimed to create a fresh landscape. On the southern end of the central passage running through the structure lies a green zone in which oaks are planted to celebrate the new building’s naming. The space continuing from the entrance hall to the second floor café is designed by contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto. From the highest ceiling hangs mathematical model “KUKKYOCHO” to symbolize its role as the holy body of a temple-like space. The façade’s illumination was undertaken by lighting designer Shozo Toyohisa. Toyohisa uses LEDs to create light gradations with a traditional Japanese taste.”

It is clear from the above information that great detail and expertize is being put into this new venture. Also, the need to fit in with the environment played a major role. On top of this the plantation of oaks corresponds with the name and provides a nice environment which is essential in this exclusive part of Tokyo.


Currently a full list of exquisite luxury brands which will move into Oak Omotesando isn’t available. However, it is known that major companies like Coach, Emporio Armani, Nespresso Boutique, and others, will be based in this new adorable complex. Therefore, the mixture of stunning architecture, well designed layout, adorable fashion brands, quality restaurants, office space, a green angle, and other aspects, will provide its own special buzz within the refined district of Omotesando.

The Omotesando Hills shopping complex and Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku (Omohara) are other major landmarks within the environment of this fashion district. Indeed, on both sides of the main street you will find so many fabulous boutiques which cater for fashion lovers. Similarly, the back street area of Omotesando connects with other fashion styles based on “street fashion” and of course “kawaii fashion” can be found given the close proximity of Harajuku.


It is hoped that the new Oak Omotesando complex will also become a landmark place to visit in this vibrant fashion and lifestyle part of Tokyo. If the planning is anything to go by then this should be the case despite the enormous competition.
