because I'm 30 year old male, among hundreds of stores there, only daiso (100 yen shop) and shop that sell crepes attracted me. But I believe, it is a heaven for teenager female. The alley is located in front of JR Harajuku station which is designed uniqeuly.

Sometimes you can spot Harajuku girls in their colorful clothing here on this street, but I didn't see any. The street is lined up with shops, fashion boutiques, some restaurants, a 100 yen shop, and a crepe station. To be perfectly honest, the only highlights are the DAISO store and the crepe station (get the tira misu!). Other than that,... More

Been here twice for this trip. Never got tired of this place. Great variety of stores selling different kinds of you-name-it items. Delicious Food can be found in those isolated streets. Do keep an open eye :-) The colorful and well dressed cosplay characters certainly liven up the place.

You can access to this street by train through Harajuku Station which is just one station from Shibuya Station or walk from Shibuya. This street is crowded with Japanese youngsters. You will also see some of them dressed up in comic characters. There are also lots of boutiques, restaurant and dessert house.

The cutest and quirkiest shops, boutiques and markets are here! I swear the Japanese have something for everything and I loved shopping here! I bought so much stuff, for great prices and everything was so unique! It was also really fun to see the Harajuku girls dressed up as well! One of the musts re: shopping in Japan!

Interesting shopping, but the novelty has gone as there were no more harajuku girls to be found on the day we visited. Still worth a wander.

Imagine trendy and excited young people everywhere. Shops everywhere, selling hair accessories, socks, make up, vintage shoes... You have to eat a crepe there if it's your first time. The crepes of Harajuku are an experience in itself.

Harajuku is incredible, especially if you love fashion. As soon as you get off the train you see Takeshita street which is a huge row of shops filled with crazy accessories, neon colours and anything kawaii! You can find some amazing one off pieces or something outrageously tacky. I tried one of the crepe shops on the street, where I... More
