Aoyama Flower Market Tea House Tokyo

Aoyama Flower Market Tea House

Awestruck. That was how we felt when we stepped into Aoyama Flower Market Tea House in Tokyo. It combines a florist with a tea house, and the result is the dream café for every girl.

Nothing quite as beautiful, nothing quite as enchanting.
