Omotesandō

Easily identified by the two rows of Japanese elms, Omotesandō is also home to the Tadao Ando designed, and highly controversial, Omotesandō Hills, as well as many other extravagantly designed fashion flagship stores.

Unis Chinos

Surrender at Raffles Hotel had a sale end of last year, and I was exactly the second kiasu person to arrive on the first day.
