It was easy to get to Shibuya by train from The Palace Hotel. Be sure to wear your walking shoes and take a back pack to make it easy to carry your shopping. Visited in mid July and there were sales on everywhere with generous discounts. Cat Street itself is cool.

It wasn't that great, but not so bad either. The street itself was quite quiet in comparison to many other shopping streets we went to in Tokyo. Nothing extraordinary, I'd say.

Besides the modern shopping complex, Shibuya quite rich with nuances of shopping. Including the existence of this street with fashion stores of various models they offer, not just fashion with japan style, but I also found the western style, cowboy, etc. Appealing to you make alternative for your shopping, or just for refreshment for your eyes.

Its a little unique and quirky but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it Some unusual shops, the street is very un Japanese but overall nothing special, we strolled through it on the way to the shopping area for teenagers

Its a shopping street for western clothes. My daughter bought a custom T-shirt for her husband. She picks the silk screen design, t-shirt, and colors. The artist paints it in front of her. She participates by holding the frame down firmly while he works. Very interesting to watch.

A narrow street full of boutiques and various thrift stores. There a lot of young locals milling around on skateboards and bicycles, providing a good glimpse into Harajuku youth culture.

Loved this shopping area. Cute little boutiques....soooo lovely! Easy walk from Shibuya or harijuku. Some shops more expensive but can find some more affordable shops there too

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.
