An amazing shopping street full of the latest trends and aimed at teens to mid 20's. If it's not here, then it's not in fashion :-) :-) Jam packed with people pretty much all the time. Amazing shops that have some pretty "out there" stuff, along with cos play, souvenirs, food and DAISO!! Some amazingly dressed people pass by too.... More

Unmissable sight in Tokyo. People dressed in all sorts of ways, lots of cute shops selling all kinds of souvenirs, clothes and nice little things.

Having been to Shibuya and Harajuku many times before, this place tends to be a nightmare for just walking around and exploring on weekends. Although watching the unique fashion is fun, I just can't relax when visiting. Too many people and many in a rush. Nice for the tourist to see the funky young side of Japanese culture however!

Fun shopping street geared towards teens. A few really cool cos-play shops to explore. For me the highlight was the crepes. You can't miss them.

Definitely worth taking a look at. If you have a teenage girls, make sure you have a lot of money with you as she will want all of the amazing sweet snacks and it is likely that the fashion conscious locals will also inspire them into anime style clothing. Really fun morning out. Just sit back, watch people and enjoy.

This is a sort of Hot Topic meets Claire's kind of shopping experience. I knew that going in and knew it shouldn't be taken too seriously. I enjoyed checking out a place talked about in pop culture and see the creative and outrageous fashions. The street starts at the JR station and is super easy to check out, so why... More

Must visit for the young on the hunt for fashionable clothes and trinkets. My favourite is the stretch with the sweet crepe pushcarts. Has some of the BEST sweet crepe variations around!
