This chic, aerodynamic subway exit is at the corner of Omotesando and Aoyama Dori. It is Exit B4 of Omotesando subway station on the Tokyo Metro Ginza line and the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda line.
It is located in Aoyama, which is one of the playgrounds of the very wealthy of Tokyo.
Befitting the style and elan and elegance of the neighborhood, the subway stop has a clear glass roof.
Climbing up the steps, you are bathed in light. For the matrons and o-jo-chans (rich girls) out for an afternoon of boutique-hopping, there is not a whiff of urine, no month-old wads of gum to get stuck on your Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahniks, and not even trash--and it was sparkling clean!.
Even the railings were spotless.
