I walked into the ladies' room on the 4th floor of Tokyu Plaza in Omotesando and was pleasantly surprised to find a creative vanity area. The toilets were basic--if you count those high tech bidet toilets of Japan "basic"--so I didn't take any pictures there.
But the molding of the doorway from the vanity to the toilet area was interesting also. Too bad I didn't have my camera (only my phone) and couldn't take nice detailed closeups.
I love how they used these mirrors. Right away it gave me ideas for powder rooms.
They are nicely backlit, and even if you try, you can't see the bulb at the back.
The vanity walls are covered in gold paint, and some parts are peeling. I don't know if it's supposed to have that effect, but it I also liked it. The only other lighting come from rimless pinlights on the ceiling.
This rotating disco ball is what you see as you enter the ladies' room. Maybe I should put a disco ball in the girls' bathroom. That will be a fun touch! What do you think C?

We walked through this beautifully lit street in Roppongi on our way to dinner. It's was a very, very cold and windy walk.
But look how beautiful it is. There are blue lights mixed in with the white lights.
In Roppongi Hills, there is this giant egg made of firefly lights too. People just walked through it and took pictures. There's nothing inside--it's just a walkway.
Here's the famous giant spider scultpure of Roppongi Hills.
I hope it's a bit warmer tomorrow. I didn't bring the right clothes for walking around. Maybe I should just stay indoors and shop.
