  Haiku Stones in Aoyama
Aoyama is one of Tokyo's upscale residential and shopping districts - the latest addition to its fame is the bright, polyhedral glass structure of Prada by architects Herzog and De Meuron - and not an area where one would expect to find any haiku stones.
The temples are tucked away but lead their own quiet life behind the glossy facade of Aoyama's boutiques.
The temple moved in 1705 to Aoyama, but fell prey to repeated fires so that the present halls are all of recent date.

The broad, tree-lined avenue leading downhill from the southern end of the JR station is Omote-sandō (表参道), which leads to the upscale Aoyama district.

 Aoyama Reien, Japan. Travel guide & tourist information by Hostelbookers.com
Turning left at the end of Omotesando, the road leads round into Tokyo's most important graveyard, officially entitled Aoyama Reien, but generally known as Aoyama Botchi.
That such an extensive slice of prime central Tokyo real estate, graveyard or not, has survived the developers' clutches for so long is nothing short of a miracle – perhaps it is because of the fantastic avenues of cherry trees, which many locals enjoy partying under during the hanami season.
Returning to Aoyama-dori from the main entrance to the graveyard, walk west for five minutes to the Japan Traditional Crafts Centre (daily except Thurs 10am–6pm; free), in the Plaza 246 building on the corner of Gaien-nishi-dori.

 Herzog & de Meuron: Prada Aoyama Tokyo
In the Aoyama district of Tokyo, a mixed-use neighborhood of low-rise buildings where not a square meter of land has been left unoccupied, the Swiss architecture team of Herzog & de Meuron has built a new store for Prada.
In this chunky, silvery book, they meticulously illustrate the creative process that led to the realization of “a house and a plaza,” a tall and narrow kaleidoscope-like structure that houses a two-story retail space and multiple levels of offices, backed by an outdoor space for the public--a rarity in crowded Tokyo.
The finished structure, encased in a visually porous shell or skin, is as decorative as it is architectural--or as architectural as it is decorative--and is both metaphorically and literally linked to its surrounding environment, and to the idea of the garment.

 Aoyama Book Center - Gridskipper
Books have been the topic of cover features for quite a few Japanese style magazines over the past month or so, and it puts me in the mind to point out one of the better bookstores in Tokyo: the Aoyama Book Center.
Although some serious financial difficulties last year saw it closing all branches throughout the city, the flagship store in Aoyama (near the United Nations University) managed to survive.
It's not the most stylish of bookstores -- see Cow Books or Hacknet if that's what you're looking for -- but the selection at ABC is second to none.

 Aoyama Cafes - Gridskipper
Sometime last year I wrote a sidebar for Budget Travel magazine that covered a few of my favorite cafes in Aoyama, and it's only recently that I found out that the piece was online as well.
Even though it was written last year, it still stands as some of my favorite spots in the area, to which I would of course add the AtoZ Cafe, which I continue to visit regularly.
For even more cafe picks, and if the sight of Japanese characters doesn't scare you off, then head on over to Tokyo Cafe Mania -- confession time: it's where I often go to find new cafes.
