In the Edo period (1603-1868), this area was home to the residences of the Aoyama clan, warriors who served as direct retainers of Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa. This is said to be the origin of its name. As the traditions of Aoyama extended into recent times, Meiji Jingu shrine, Omotesando, and the ginkgo trees in Gaien-mae joined the fold. These historic landmarks imbue Aoyama with a dignified culture and a lush, vibrant atmosphere.
The main streets of Aoyama sparkle with the high-end flagship stores of world-class brands. Meanwhile, its side streets and shops are alive with the energy of the budding creators who shape tomorrow's trends. Minami-aoyama's allure stems from its position as a home to fashion, food, and art, as well as discerning connoisseurs who are in constant pursuit of the culture's cutting edge.
