The city of Aoyama is named after the Aoyama family, a daimyo who built a mansion in the area during the early Edo period.
Aoyama is a place that coexists with both the cutting edge of fashion that big cities like Tokyo have created, and traditional Japanese culture that continues on from Edo.
Antique shops and art museums that convey old and new art alike.
Shinto shrines and temples that convey Edo culture, and numerous other gems that line antique street.
These attractions are unique to Japan, and make one eager to go out and walk around.
On the weekend, guests an visit the Farmers' Market held at Aoyama/the UNU University square.
Every week you can enjoy discovering wonderful items across more than 70 shops run by local farmers, craftsmen, and chefs.
