The best place I liked in Tokyo both for Food and Shopping. Reasonably priced food, reasonably prices shopping. Can also bargain here in some places. Has the famous (dollar equivalent) store here. great place to also buy some souvenirs.

If you're into the not to be taken too seriously tween fashion the locals call Kawaii then you'll love this. I ended up buying a wool jumper with a polar bear with a beanie on. The true STAR of this area though is Harajuku St. which is across the road from the end of the Takeshita st if you've come... More

One of the real must in Tokyo to understand Japanase pop culture and to freak out with the colorful and well dressed cosplay characters (people dressed like their manga and anime heroes…) on Saturday and Sunday mornings. It is not far away from Shibuya famous multipedestrian crossing. Walking it would take you around 20 minutes. Nearby you will also find... More

This area is the 'young' hipster part of Tokyo. It's quite interesting to see the difference from the suit wearing and well dressed older generation. The shops are OK but it's worth a stroll through Takeshita Dori.

Really nice for a stroll. Go there on weekends, specially on Sundays to see a lot of Japanese Street Fashion.

Very busy shopping street opposite Harajuku station. This is where the hip come to shop. Very reasonable prices on clothing and shoes. Keep your eye out for fashionistas on Sunday.

From Omotesando its a pleasant walk, and Takeshita dori was quaint, but really just a tween/teen girl paradise. Didn't do anything for me or my son, but it was just another place to people watch as we walked through.

If you like a dishevelled backstreet full of shops selling ice cream and cheap souvenirs, this is for you. Seeing that it was December and mid week when I visited I did not expect to see many, if any, of the Harajuku cosplay girls (actually saw one) so I was not disappointed about that but the supposedly funky offbeat uber...

We went there on a Sunday thinking that we could catch a glimpse of Cosplay and they were nowhere in sight. We stayed the entire afternoon and were very disappointed. It was very, very crowded and we had to make sure we don't lose each other.
