Sit back and relax here,
where "people, city, and car" meet.
Get a taste of the Lexus spirit .

Minami-Aoyama - the land of luxury brand shops.
Customers at Intersect by Lexus - Tokyo can experience a variety of different lifestyles as presented through the Lexus brand concept. Get a feel for the unique Lexus style of manufacture, design and art, and get a close-up look of rare concept cars, too.

This concept covers cuisine as well with a cafe on the first floor and a bistro on the second.

In collaboration with Norwegian coffee bar Fuglen, the first floor has a coffee stand offering the best coffee in town.

The impressive second floor bistro was created with an open-concept design complete with sofas, and set up to look like the office of the building's fictional owner, Mr. Lexus. It has the same comfortable feel as a friend's house, and it's easy to relax and enjoy a meal here.

Daichi Tajima created the menu with the idea of providing "comfort food that people will want to eat every day" - and it never fails to satisfy.

More and more, people are thinking for themselves and making their own decisions about what they do and don't like, and Lexus has much to offer.

You can get a feel for the concept behind Intersect even through the menu. Customize your own salad or mashed potatoes. Try the unique sukiyaki made with fond de veau stock and dressed with a foam made from egg, onion and potato flavoured with mustard.

Whether for lunch or for dinner, alone or in a group, there's something on the menu for everyone.

Masamichi Katayama of interior design company Wonderwall Inc. was responsible for the space, and his goal was for people to use it as their "third place" space, somewhere that sits right between home and work.

This quiet spot only a few short steps from the hustle and bustle of Omotesando is sure to be the favourite of many.

Interview

How did you get into the restaurant industry?
I originally wanted to become a bartender. I worked in hotels, but then I had the chance to work in a French restaurant. I became fascinated with wine and decided to become a sommelier.

I changed jobs and was involved in the launches of various restaurants, and have been general manager here since we opened in 2013.
What's the best part of being a manager?
This is particularly true here, but being a manager is good because you need to have various skills. It's not just about the food and drink, so you learn something new every day.

There are plans to open Intersect locations in Dubai and New York in the future, so as the first location, I want to make it a model for the others.
What is the concept behind the restaurant?
Our mission is to bring the Lexus message to life. Lexus is known as a luxury brand car, but it's not just about luxury, it's about evolution.

We're not here to simply promote Lexus cars, we're here to bring the Lexus thinking to life in the bistro, cafe, and shop, and to give people a better idea and feel for what Lexus is.
