for over 100 years, REN has operated a botanical specialty shop in Tokyo’s Mita district, 

the current owner, botanical artist and designer Nobuaki Kawahara, recently relocated REN, which takes it’s name from the Japanese word for lotus, renovating a 55-year old building and creating the brand’s flagship location,

the new space was designed by Eisuke Tachikawa and his design firm Nosigner “In designing such a space, we sought a way to accentuate the beauty of each plant, like in flower arrangement,” says the team. They designed a modular shelving system featuring circular shelves that can be adjusted depending on the plants being displayed, likening the space to a singular vase,

REN sells plants but they also offer consultation services for a number of needs such as plant care, replanting and even styling, 

REN can be found at 2-17-32 mita minato-ku tokyo (google map), Hours: 11AM – 7PM,but these may vary so contact them or check their blog if you plan on visiting, what a different way to show the plants they sell.
