For November, I would like to highlight The Treat Dressing – a beautiful bridal boutique located in the diverse shopping destination of Tokyo, Japan, perfect for the trend setting, fashion conscious bride. Yoko Yamashiro, the buyer and general producer of Treat, was kind enough to give me some insider information about this boutique as well as tips while traveling in Tokyo.

What is a must do when in Tokyo?

Only a two-hour train-ride from the center of Tokyo is the famous hot-springs in Hakone. We recommend a stay at the Hyatt Regency Hotel or at GORAKADAN, where you can stretch your feet at the top notch spa while immersing yourself in the Japanese traditional culture and beautiful nature.

Further, you’d be astounded by the varieties of seasonal blessings every time you visit. For example, in the spring time, you can encounter the tranquilizing scenery full of beautiful sakura and in the summertime, you can take part in the chill-axing traditional Japanese festival, Maturi.

Where do you go to find inspiration?

Minami Aoyama, where The Treat Dressing Minami Aoyama is located, is the most fashionable district in Japan. Here you can find every top fashion house flagship store. The district is also adjacent to Meijin Shrine and Shinjyuku Gyoen Park, where you can find yourself in the oasis of nature in central Tokyo.

The Palace Hotel, which is also one of the most popular wedding venues in Tokyo, is another great place for inspiration. Here you can enjoy the fusion of Japanese hospitality and?modern oriental aesthetic. The private balcony is a must see – as it overlooks the beautiful forever greens of the emperor’s palace.

Besides the Palace Hotel, what is another popular wedding venue for brides in Tokyo?

For a restaurant wedding, Hiramatsu group restaurants offer top quality cuisine and service in the refined and stylish setting.
