Travel Diaries: Aoyama Flower Market Tea House, Tokyo
On today's blog post, I'm writing from the energetic city of Tokyo, taking full advantage of my time exploring the undiscovered! If you love drawing inspiration from cafes or boutique interiors, then read on to discover this wonderful space with us.
Housing an incredibly bustling tea house within a flower shop, Aoyama Flower Market Tea House is no stranger to the cafe scene in Tokyo. As one of the most accessible cafes from Omote-sando station, AFMTH is a heavyweight top favourite for its #instagramworthy interior and ambience.
Greeting us at the entrance of AFMTH is a colourful and dynamic display of fresh blooms styled in vases, pots and platformed crates. If you find yourself leaning towards your screen to give this image a big whiff, you're not the only one. In the flesh, it was a delightful sensory lift, especially after an exhausting morning of exploring.
To create a sense of warmth and rustic flavour, you'll find wood tiles and distressed timber planks embedded among pebble washed textiles, with other rustic elements like brick walls and steel frames.
Taking center stage of this cosy enclave, you'll find heavily structured black steel frames intertwined with vines of creepers. It's like nature took over in this cosy space, prettily presenting us with the best smelling flowers and plants to compliment your brew.
