This places is hella crowded and to me it's a good tourist spot but also a tourist trap. They have a lot of clothings and crepe spots but it's more towards tourist and local clothes shopping. I'm sure you can style yourself with all the...More

This is a case of tourism ruining an area. This street was very crowded but was basically just trashy souvenir shops. We couldn't get out fast enough. We walked there from Shibuya up Cat Street which was a far nicer area. We also walked up...More

If you’ve never been to Takeshita dori before it’s a fun street to take. There’s so many people that you’re wobbling slowly forward. If you don’t mind that, there’s many stores and restaurants on that street. Crepe stands galore!

The heart of Harajuku is undoubtedly Takeshita Street, a colorful 350 meter-long street line with all sorts of fashion stores and the reputation is well-deserved: the area is a melting pot for Japanese subculture and style. When it comes to looks, everything is allowed in...More

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.
