Walking, Biking & Visiting Aoyama – Photo Exhibition and Farmers Market

There are many interesting galleries, shops and restaurants along the National Route 246.  The Aoyama Spiral Hall is an iconic exhibition space in this area.  This art gallery exhibits art, paintings, photography and so on weekly or monthly.

Right now, Spiral Hall holds photo exhibition of Mr. Everett Brown – Japanese Samurai Fashion.  He is a photographer born in the United States and lives in Japan, taking photos of Japanese culture, history and people.  The exhibition is until June 18th, free of charge.

Samurai is old Japanese worriers but their descendants still keep the culture to ride horses and shoot bows.  And Mr. Brown finds how fashionable these Samurai are.

There are cafes and restaurants in Spiral Hall as well as several shops.

In Aoyama, within a few blocks, there are many shops so you can enjoy walking around (and biking around though this is an area where people stroll with fashionable cloths so maybe there are not so many cyclists with cycling gears).  And if you go there on weekends, there is a farmers market held in front of Unated Nations University.

 

They have different themes each week and when I visited there, it was a wine week.
