"MIU MIU Ayoyama"
The building opened on March, 2015, built by Herzog & de Meuron, architects from Switzerland. The building you can feel the atmosphere like a hideaway is just like you have put a metal box that shines brightly. Prada epicenter placed diagonally from this building is also built by the same people but it's interesting that the atmospheres are totally opposite.
