Indeed a great place to shop. This is one of the places in Japan to find fashion clothings at very affordable prices. Interesting to see all the flamboyant costumes the youths wear on weekends!
The crepes here were popular and i tried one, it was yummy indeed! Pancakes are also very popular in Tokyo with many queues i saw in Harajuku waiting to have a seat in pancake shops.
Most shops at Takeshita-dori accepted credit cards which was useful as i did not bring sufficient cash.
I was surprised though that the shops started closing early at 9pm on the saturday i visited! For such a bustling place, it would have been good to open till at least 10pm just for fridays and saturdays maybe?
Good place to observe and see another entertaining side of Japan with all the loud dressing. :) a must-visit especially on weekends!
