A small street that is extremely crowded and lined with many shops selling all sorts of food and goods. If it is your first time visiting Japan, this is a good place to visit to experience modern Japanese pop culture and do some shopping.

Visited this street twice. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Felt it was overrated as a tourist attraction. Lots and lots of tax free shopping. Numerous crepe shops lined the street. Other than that, there were idol sticker shops and poster shops....More

We came here 3 times, and the street was always busy. Even on the 2 days when it was raining. The entrance to the street is directly across from the Harajuku JR train station, so it is easy to get to. On this street you...More

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
