Reviews from people who have visited this stunning cafe say that it is one of the most calming places they have ever visited in the middle of a busy city.  It offers a wide variety of teas (no coffees)  & the French toast is supposedly delicious and tastes like  dessert. Aoyama has  “flower days” and showcases special petals, such as the Peony:

I would love to see Tokyo and definitely don’t want to miss this gorgeous oasis.  I loved the movie, “Lost in Translation” directed by Sofia Coppola.  It really showcased the beauty and everyday life of Tokyo.  I believe she went out on the street with her video camera and filmed some scenes.  I hope I can get to Tokyo and Kyoto one day.  I’ll leave you with one more picture of the beautiful Aoyama Flower House and Tea Market.
