Cool street with lots of fun shops. Not quite as much anime as expected. A short walk from Omotesando.

You can't miss this on a weekend. But please ask before taking photos of people.... they'll always say yes.

Not many places can be truly unique, and this is no exception, however it does have some quirky stores but does also cater for the general public too. The crepe stores there are famous, so be sure to try some!

After visiting Meiju shrine cross the road turn left parallel to the Meijumae station. I decided to take a long route, walked down along the fancy shops and turn left near La floret mall. Continue till you hit Takeshita dori. Though the clothes are not to my girls taste I did managed to buy some bags and souvenir for them.... More

Thought it was going to be an afternoon of proper Tokyo weirdness...it wasn't really. No doubt there are good days and bad and there certainly were some shops selling weird clothing etc, but anywhere that's got a McDonald's and a Claire's Accessories can't be that cutting edge, can it? It was ok, but I won't bother again.

A great place midway to visit through your trip to Japan and I would strongly advise to go without too much money to spend otherwise you can lose it all making 'cool' purchases at some of the most expensive shops I saw whilst I was in Japan. Although I would advise against buying anything it is an interesting place to... More

I would recommend you don't visit here on your 1st day in Japan, It can be a little overwhelming. The place is heaving with young Japanese and tourist alike. Having said that, the street is vibrant and full of energy with lots of 'alternative' clothing shops and quite a number of folks browsing the shops in full manga or traditional... More

Great finds for the modern design for the hipsters of Japan. My crew ended up enjoying Tacayama meal but saw impressive shoes, T's, and anime attire. Sale was on and added flair to the shopping spree.

This place is one of the most busiest places that I have been to. Considering the size of the place ... there are many young people who like to come to this place because of the variety of shops, games and food that is available to them.

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.
