Every time i go to Tokyo, I visit Cat Street. It is a much quieter than Harajuku and I feel like it has more character without the gimmick. You can find many cool trinkets and treats/eats on this street. My favorite is Rag Tag (not your average second hand store). It's a great place for a stroll because cars are... More

Full of shopping and cafes, it's worth a stroll to escape from the noise of Shibuya. There's a great cafe called Nozy Coffee... excellent coffee!!

Fun to walk down - cute and quirky (but expensive) shops to browse and one evening we ate at a nice American-style BBQ place along here.

Maybe it's due to it being July, but we weren't all that impressed with cat street. We've explored it thoroughly and there are quite a few shops, but not that many outstanding ones.

my friend accidentally found the street when we finished having lunch buffet at "Shakey's" nearby. this street connects the Omotesando and Shibuya, many individual shop houses along the street and most of the shops are decorative or cute! i think it's a good choice of route if you wish to walk from one to the other destination!=)

We visited the Harajuku and Shibuya areas twice in our trip, and both times we decided to walk through Cat Street to get from one area to the other. The street itself is very chill and relaxed, with several boutiques and vintage shops lined up. It's a road to walk on, but personally, I don't see myself shopping in any... More

This funky street is really curvy and follows the course of what was the old Shibuya river. Like much of this area it is filled with many odd ball establishments and individually styled shops. You will find yourself admiring the outfits of the young people who are setting todays fashion. Include as part of your visit to Meiji Jingu temple

Nice selection of interesting shops and some good restaurants and cafes. Good for wandering around and browsing. Some of the shops are a bit uber trendy - be warned

in our walk, cat street is area between harajuku, omotesando, and shibuya. but i find this area more quiet, not too crowded like the other area i mentioned. can't find the goods in shops too interesting. only the exterior of the shops are quite interesting. the only food truck in this street is takoyaki. i tasted yummier version somewhere else...
