This so different street is a cultural phenomena, go strolling slowly ,have a cup of coffee or something to eat in one of the small dinning places thereby to have an opportunity to watch the young people that this area is part of their life, I found it very interesting and strongly recommend to spend an hr or two to...

Everyone is cooler than you here, and probably younger, unless you are reading this and are young and cool, then this doesn't apply. The fashions are cool, the shops quirky, the crowd young, the food street. Vintage shops are popular, though they are hardly vintage as they are new but styled vintage and priced as new, some what missing point.... More

We were here two years ago. We were surprised to see that there were some upgrades to some of the stores. New building that has the Disney Store. Tsum Tsums seems to be the new craze and this Disney store has a Harajuku set only available here. There is also a clean restroom here! Even though the Daiso store (100... More

We visited the street on a Sunday and it was so crowded that we couldn't really enjoy as we were just being pushed by the sea of people along the street. Went back there on a weekday and it was so much better where we could stroll and enjoy the shops. A few shops that stood out for us was... More

There were more queuing at marion crepes, we try 3 crepes from different stall, marion, angel heart and sweet box, they all tasted the same, all... More

Busy. Chaotic. Frenzy. All true. Just go. Keep an open mind and go slowly through the crowds. You aren't there to make your way THROUGH the street; you are there to EXPERIENCE the street. So don't be in a rush; you can't -- it is too crowded. Instead, enjoy the creativity, the blatant rebelliousness to a society that is so... More

As soon as you leave Harajuku station you're greeted by every colour of the rainbow. Takeshita-Dori is a really lovely street and it's hard to focus on just one thing at a time. I definitely recommend it, its eccentric and interesting.

Much too crowded to enjoy this street, just get pushed along with the sea of people. Very few costume shops.

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.
