Those familiar with the Italian designer Max Mara, will not encounter any new or particularly different items in this branch. However, as always, the quality of clothing is exceptional and the cuts are classic and elegant. Most items are subtle in color-beige tones, creams, white and black. Larger sizes are also available. The style is semi-casual yet simplistically classy and wearable for both young and mature generations.
The distinctive stripes on Striped House Museum of Art's modern-looking building are quite eye-catching. The museum itself is a venue for changing exhibits and is especially known for sculpture. Cultural events such as concerts, theater performances and occasional lectures and/or seminars are also held here.
This small and friendly shop stocks pajamas, dressing gowns, toiletry bags, handbags, plus a few children's toys and accessories, all made from toweling. It is not, however, as bland as it might sound. Specializing in flowery patterned toweling, the Hotman display is in fact quite elegant and stylish. Some designs have a tapestry feel about them and others are cute and colorful. It is an ideal place to buy useful and attractive gifts for ladies.

Here is another businessman's collection (Kaichiro Nezu 1860-1940) which has become a first-rate museum. Well represented are traditional Japanese art works.
