In the middle of busy Aoyama Dori you can find “246 Common” a collection of food stalls + tents + trailers + clothes stores + farmers market + bakeries + flower shop (their roses are Ethiopian)+ drinks, all located outdoors in a market style setting. The market was built on an empty plot of land, in the heart of up-market Aoyama and was named after the road which runs past it.
Whether you fancy some drinks, pastries, flowers or just a break go take a look at 246 Common, this place seems to have it all. And what is more, there is a feeling of community, a sense of being connected and being able to chat with the people there.
Don’t forget to look around the corner at the end, there’s a very appealing row of traditional wood stalls, with wooden roofs, sliding doors and wood benches where you can hang out.
I’d like to thank 246 Common’s staff that kindly let me shoot their stalls/tents/trailers ありがとうございます!!
