Upon passing through the noren leading to Okura, it takes a brief moment for your eyes to adjust to the dim lighting while you are welcomed with the smoky aroma of burning incense.

As part of the Hollywood Ranch Market group of stores in Daikanyama, Okura's differentiation is that it specializes in goods inspired by traditional Japanese workwear. While the first floor selection is comprised of almost entirely natural indigo dyed garments, the second floor presents slightly more gentlemanly attires as well as the women's pieces.

Even though the styling may not be for everyone, this shop is still worth a stop if just to browse and experience the atmosphere.

About

What is Bitmaps?

Bitmaps is a website designed to document noteworthy locations around the globe through a wiki-style format. The concept is to serve as an online guidebook that can be updated on-the-fly and whose goal is to share niche content by subject matter experts across different areas of interest. There is no rating system: every location that appears on the map is deemed worthwhile to visit by the contributor community - it could be end up being the highlight of your next trip or a hidden gem just around the corner.

As content updates are controlled in an open format, creation and editing of the data is limited to contributor members. All users, however, are able to browse the entire catalog of content, apply tags and upload images of locations and even create custom maps to which their own notes can be added and then shared.

How can I contribute?

The ability to create and edit content is limited to users with Contributor accounts, which will be provisioned through a referral system. Ability to contribute may be opened to all users in the future, however in order to control content quality for the time being, membership is currently closed.
