This was on our must-do list as I was traveling with teenagers. Yes, it was busy & crowded, but so is every other tourist destination! I love the Kawaii culture of Japan. There are many clothing stores selling the adorable, pastel & neutral colors so popular in Japan. There are also a few punk and/or gothic stores, and a few... More

It was an interesting area but too commercial and feel there are better places to find in Tokyo like Shinakitasawa where there funky bars and retro shops.

Had a great time in Harajuku. The Takeshita-dori lane is jam packed full of people, quirky shops, and crepe places. Just around the corner is the South Entrance to the Meiji shrine. A short walk down into Harajuku is an amazing gyoza restaurant I will review separately.

This street was so much fun!!! Tons of shops, restaurants, take away crepes and cotton candy. The energy here is undeniable. We did a little shopping but it was just so crowded it was hard to get the full shopping experience in. There were lines to get into some of the stores. The people watching here is excellent. It is... More

I visited here to immerse myself in the culture and shopping that surrounds harajuku. It is very crowded but the hustle and bustle is kinda fun if you are ready for it. Crepe shops everywhere.... Delicious! A few pretty cool shops for clothes and souvenirs. Definitely worth a visit if you like shopping and sweet foods.

My fiancé and I visited Harajuku Takeshita-dori on a Sunday. It was very crowded, as I was expecting. Lots of colourful, funky shops.

The symbol of Harajuku and birthplace of many of Japan's fashion trends! Absolutely loved Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street)! Because of the street's popularity, it was super extremely busy and crowded on the weekend when we were there. Interesting shops and restaurants can also be found along some of the side streets. Must visit when in Tokyo!

We went to this crazy place on New Years Day and even though it was very crowded, it wasn't scary-see photo that I took by holding my arms up in the air. There weren't many girls dressed up but we did see one in particular who was dressed like Little Bo Peep and I don't know how she walked in... More

There is a big Daiso... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood 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.
