Harajuku Takeshita-Dori is shopping street for young people. There is a big 100 Yen and Daiso there. You can find eateries, Pachinco ( gambling shop), fashion accessory shops are there. It is nearby Meiji Shrine with 5-10 mins walking distance.

This place is perpetually crowded with tourists and young folks all hours of the day. Go on a weekend and you will not be able to miss the crowds of cosplay-ers there. A great vibe but can be a bit too overwhelming with the crowd there. We were not interested in the fashion but it was a good eye-opener. The... More

This is over the road from the train station and easy to get to. It gets really busy and there is a lot to see, but not really much to buy unless you have very quirky taste. Good for a walk if it's not too busy.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon to ensure that the street would be busy and vibrant. Takeshita-dori was thronging with happy, colourful young people and the atmosphere was great. A good spot for a short walk to take in the energy of Harajuku.

Stylish shops, a little bizarre clothing to be found in some places, but that's what makes this experience so much fun! There is no limit to what you can find here, but be aware: it can be expensive in some places. There is one store that does remake of old clothing I think, they have really cool clothing for low...

Harajuku is one of the places you would not miss when you are in Tokyo. And since you are in Harajuku, Takeshita Street is definitely a street you will visit. It's just a long street at Harajuku Station. Daiso can be found there. All kinds of stuff selling at just 100 yen each. There are many other apparels, interesting shops... More

This is undoubtedly one of the most folkloric of the city, about 500 meters long, super crowded and fully to every type of shop imaginable. A surreal atmosphere, a place unlike any you've been accustomed to see in this wonderful city. Shops along the road and a lot of young people everywhere, colors, sounds, in short, a whole world to...

Some of the best prices for shopping that I saw while in Tokyo. It's a fun atmosphere, tons of young people just having a good time. There are a large variety of sort of "subcultures" that hang out here, from a sort of gothy-punky crowd, to cosplayers, and high-fashion. If it gives you an example of the type of place... More
