A new open gallery and restaurant, Aelu, has opened in Yoyogi-Uehara, offering pottery from local and international artists. The owner, Tomohiro Maruyama, proffers cuisine to Tokyoites through restaurants such as Maison Cinquante Cinq and Lanterne, and his new venture, Aelu, brings a new dimension to cuisine with pottery he chooses personally. Currently, Aelu is the only shop in the city to have Sueki Alchemy products as well as the Misa Kumabuchi lineup that has garnered popularity in Copenhagen and London. In the space next to Aelu, the newest lanterne offers customers cuisine and the opportunity to wander next door and enjoy the gallery.
