A mid-century Japanese house has been renovated and transformed into Urasando Garden, a new type of place where creative Japanese food and culture gather. It is located in the back ally of Omotesando, one of the most popular shopping districts in Tokyo. (Ura means “back” in Japanese, and in contrast, omote is front.)
Urasando Garden has just opened on March 2nd. Now there are 7 shops in the house. On the first floor, at Ujien, you can experience making your own matcha, and at MARGAUX you can try tasting Japanese wine and Shochu while at Gokaque Japanese sake. On the second floor, there are small shops such as Juttoku. where they sell various shapes of incense.
A great location for tourists where they can experience some Japanese culture while taking a rest with a cup of matcha or coffee after shopping in Omotedsando and Harajuku, or for few drinks of sake and wine at night.
