I simply loved the sphere and vibe of cat street. It feels very retro / vintage with all the nice and cosy stores. If you want something different from the big shops than this street is the perfect opportunity. Also nice to walk around and...More

Fun little area to visit with some one of a kind quirky shops. If you're in the area it's worth a pop by.

A modern, top area for shopping in Tokyo. Most international brands have their flagship stores here (none of them Luxury brands), and makes this a cool, modern, relaxed area for a walking, enjoying a coffee, and do lots of shopping or at least window shopping!

A quieter area to wander and enjoy the shops and general vibe of the area. Queued up for a Luke's Lobster in the rain. Not sure I would queue up again . Found the area charming

Walked down Takeshita and Cat Streets to Shibuya. Cat was much less crowded! It was so cute, and had good food options. I wish it weren't raining, then it might have been my favorite day. Bring cash! Many shops don't take credit.

But it is a good way to walk from harajuku to Shibuya. When you get to kiddyland in Harajuku you will find cat street. There a some nice shops. A lobster place on he corner was very popular for takeaway. I didn't want to part...More

Great place for a still, definitely a different pace from harajuku. Many reviews mention cute quirky resale shops, but in fact these are primarily designer resale mixed in with things like Oakley shops. So it's not so different from other shopping areas in the end...More

Loved this area! I think i went nearly everyday here. Loved the vibe, the shops were to my liking, the people were cool and some really nice tucked away food places! For me a must visit area on any trip!

Found this place walking around Shibuya, different from the tall skyscrapers but very nice. In fact I think I would get tired of such tall buildings very soon. This street was a nice break from it.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
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.

How late do things stay open on Cat street? We are thinking about staying at an apartment here but don't want to be in an area that is all shut down at night. Thanks! Vicki

It's a great location, shops are open til 10pm ish as in most Tokyo stores. But Omotesando Dori is a couple of minutes stroll at end of Cat St, and is very very vibrant place. As are all the street on either side of this... More
