Photogenic spots & Cafe in Omotesando!



Omotesando is one of my favorite places to spend an afternoon strolling around, cafe hopping, and snapping some artsy photos. There is so much more to Omotesando than just the luxury brand shops and the main tree-lined road stretch. Within the small streets and neighborhoods on either side of road are some hidden cafes and photo spots that are just begging to be photographed!


The Double RL Ralph Lauren store is hard to miss when walking around Omotesando. The design of the brick walls and high arched windows, accented by the lush greenery is a great backdrop for an #OOTD (outfit of the day) photo.

There is a perfect little spot toward the back entrance of the store, and right across from that is this little graffiti corner that some may pass by without a second glance, but is actually quite a popular background for many outfit photos. Many take the photo with just the white and black background, but I suggest standing in the middle of the graffiti wall and the navy blue wall for a nice contrast background.

One of the most iconic walls is the colorful ‘NOW IS FOREVER’ painting, which stretches along the wall so long that it’s actually difficult to get all three words in a photo.

Many can be seen taking photos in front of the ‘FOREVER’, even lining up and setting up their cameras to timer mode and coming up with cute and unique poses for their photos. Although I noticed that many were taking their photos with their cameras set directly in front of the word, that would only get two, maybe three letters in the photo. My suggestion in order to make sure that the entire ‘FOREVER’ is captured in your photo is to take the photo diagonally from the left, so that the whole word fits in!

If you walk a while past the NOW IS FOREVER, you’ll find the BREIZH Cafe Creperie, popular for their galettes and crepes.

Even the exterior of the cafe is pretty, resembling a cafe that might be found in France.

Galettes are always plated to be ready for a photo, with it’s geometric shapes and colorful meats and veggies serving as decoration. They’re also not too filling, because there’s plenty more cafes to visit in Omotesando!

Hidden along the streets sit this beautiful store, Princess One Spoon, designed with the inspiration of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.

There light blue and wooden doors and detailing serve as a pretty and elegant backdrop, or you can pose on the stairs between the beautiful bronze gates. To bring the fairytale magic to your photo, try a sweet, dreamy, pink filter!

Princess One Spoon is actually a sister shop of Alice on Wednesday, which is only a five minute walk away.

The entrance to the store, staying true to the Alice in Wonderland theme, is actually a tiny door that you’ll have to squat through to enter! This is an adorable little photo spot to snap a pic of you walking in, or out.

There are a couple photo-ops inside the store as well! Between the second and first floor you’ll find the Caterpillar on his mushroom. Rather than taking the picture on the way from the first floor, I suggest taking it from a higher angle in order to capture the size difference. On the second floor, you’ll also find a beautiful red heart seat that you are free to sit in and become the Queen of Hearts!

After all of the walking, you might be a bit thirsty. Stop by The Alley Lujiaoxing, a newly opened tea shop that sells not only tapioca/pearl/boba tea, but also these beautiful fruit teas that are taking over the store’s Instagram tags.

On the left is Northern Lights, is grape and apple flavored, while the Morning Sunrise on the right is mango. Both were very refreshing! The interior of the cafe is very stylish and serve as a great background for your drinks.

Along Cat Street is The Little Shop of Flowers, and the name speaks for itself.

If you’re a fan of dried flowers like me, this store is a great find. They have dry flower bouquets hanging from the ceiling, as well as a wall covered in bouquets for you to take photos with! (The store staff do not seem to mind if you take photos, as long as you are respectful.) It is a little dark in the store, so I suggest editing your photo to brighten the shadows!

You’ve probably heard of ice cream cake, but have you ever had an ice cake as beautiful as these, offered at Glaciel? There is a variety of amazing cakes on the menu, and you can order anywhere from one to three different cakes in small sizes so you can try different flavors without getting too full!

There is also a parfait menu, which has an even classier presentation than a typical parfait!

If you want an even fancier parfait, head over to Aoyama Flower Market Tea House, a popular cafe run by a flower shop. Of course, even the cafe is decorated in seasonal flowers and the menu also features edible flowers as well!

If you order the Flower Parfait, you can satisfy the rose-jelly-cravings that you never knew you had.

If you’re looking for somewhere to relax, come here to have some herb tea and bask in the aroma of the flowers.

The entire cafe, as well as the connected flower shop are very photogenic with all of the blooming flowers that fill up the room.
