For some, Tokyo is a city where tradition meets innovation and where creativity flourishes at every corner. For world-renowned actress, model, and creative director Kiko Mizuhara, Tokyo is her playground and a continual source of inspiration.

The American-born, Japanese and Korean artist is best known for gracing the covers of top fashion and cultural publications such as Vogue, i-D Magazine, d Repubblica, and more. She is currently a global ambassador for Saint Laurent, and has starred in campaigns for Chanel (as one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses), Christian Dior, Diesel, and Tiffany & Co. On the acting side, Kiko first broke out starring in Tran Anh Hung’s adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s NORWEGIAN WOOD, as well as Toho’s adaptation of the beloved manga ATTACK ON TITAN.

Much like Mizuhara’s diverse interests and inspirations, Tokyo offers a plethora of experiences that blend the traditional with the contemporary. Whether you’re looking for culinary delights, artistic inspiration, or a unique shopping experience, Tokyo has something for everyone.

Le Cabaret

“Le Cabaret captures the ambiance of a Parisian bistro, offering a relaxed setting with good music playing in the background. I enjoy sitting at the outdoor tables, observing people having a great time. My favorite dish is the simple yet flavorful mushroom salad.”

“AC HOUSE is a gem where stunning architecture meets culinary excellence. Upon entering, you are greeted by a uniquely shaped white stone table seamlessly integrated into the space. The beautiful architecture, renovated from a traditional house, sets the stage for a memorable dining experience. Each dish from the set menu is paired with a carefully selected array of Japanese, Western, and Chinese liqueurs and herbs, enhancing the flavors. What stands out to me is the addition of interesting herbs in every dish and the delightful music selection that creates a cozy atmosphere.”

Bar Hachigatsu no Kujira (Whales of August)
