Mitsuru showed us so many stores while in Tokyo which was so! Okura was one of my favorites.
I wasn't allowed to take pics inside but here are some outside pictures. They even had turtles upstairs on the balcony, I watched one jump off a rock straight on his head! I shrieked and then I realized that turtles can retract their heads really fast.
There was lot's of indigo and wood prints and a modern twist on traditional Japanese aesthetics. Okura goes along with the prevailing "love, peace and earth" theme that is happening in Tokyo. Californian hippie in the Japanese way suddenly seems alluring!
