A shopping street

Made me think of Oxford Street on steroids! A long street full of shops and people. Lots of big name, familiar stores.

Omotesando is sometimes called the Champs-Elysées of Tokyo but I think it's much grander. All along this tree-lined avenue you'll see stunning examples of modern architecture, commissioned by fashion houses like Dior and Tod's. But you don't have to be a millionaire to shop on Omotesando, there are some great places to get souvenirs like Kiddy Land, Oriental Bazaar and... More

It's quickly become my favourite shopping stretch in tokyo. get off the main street and walk the back alleys of Omotesando and you will find so many gems, or stay on the main stretch and you can really feel that the place is pulsing.

This place has a lot of nice stores and is a must when visiting Tokyo. It has a lot of clientele. It was packed when we visited as it was on a Saturday. Also easy by train from Ginza.

On some notes, this area might seem like Ginza, albeit on a smaller scale. You get the same highend brands and cafes that you would normally associate with Ginza district. Tip: If you have been to Ginza, maybe you can consider giving this a miss, and focus on the nearby Harajuku area.

Famers market, open at the United Nations University campus in Aoyama, I find to keep walking at Omotesando on foot by the chance. You can expect around 40 vendors selling veggies plucked right out of the soil, mushrooms, handmade natto and much more. It happens every Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

Omotesando was really a cool area which to me was a hignend shopping paradize - both foreign and local brands. Something different from Ginza (mainly department stores), those were all on the streets with individual buildings/ retails and hence it was quite exclusive. Do not expect anything cheap here but it was a great place for window shopping if you... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
