Tokyo's fashionable Omotesando street in Tokyo's Aoyama district just got a tad more fashionable with the opening there on March 16 of Japan's first Ted Baker store. Ted Baker, the well-known British clothing brand that began in 1988 now has 162 stores in countries outside the UK.
For the first two days, March 16 and 17, customers received a complimentary Pimms and a slice of cake (plus a limited edition pack of English Breakfast Tea for those who spent 18,000 yen, i.e. GPB136.35, or more), and on the 18th, St. Patrick's Day, a glass of Guiness Beer and a cupcake with a shamrock mark on it. Those who spent 18,000 yen or more on St. Patrick's Day also got a red pillar box-style money box.
Ted Baker Tokyo is managed by Ratko Backo, formerly of Reiss.
To get to Ted Baker Tokyo on Omotesando, take either exit A2 or A3 out of Omotesando Subway Station.
