This is a postcard showing sights of Omotesando, Tokyo. Omotesandō is an avenue, subway station and neighborhood in the Minato and Shibuya wards in Tokyo stretching from Harajuku station, specifically, the foot of Takeshita Street, to Aoyama-dori where Omotesandō station can be found. Zelkova trees line both sides of the avenue. Around 100,000 cars drive down the main street daily.
Omotesandō was originally created as the frontal approach to Meiji Shrine, when the Shrine was dedicated in the Taishō era.
