Takeshita Dori is a long narrow street filled with trendy shops, clothes and accessories stores, shoes and bags boutiques, trinkets shops, crepe vans, coffee shops and restaurants. Almost all of the shops are geared towards the female population specifically the young ones with its hip and trendy styles of merchandise. Prices are reasonable. Many shops have sale items. I was...

A fun little street to walk down. Beware the tourist traps in terms of prices but a fun place to go and see the Harajuku girls in their outfits.

A great spot if you want to do some shopping. Different slightly from Shibuya, this area is a train stop away, but has more street stores where you can find cheaper buys, rather than just department stores. We were on the hunt for some luggage, and came across a bargain down this street! Very busy, lots of food options such... More

One word of advice; do NOT go to Takeshita-dori in the middle of a Sunday afternoon, because it will be a zoo of people. That being said, there were some nice bargains in the shops, though the majority of the shops are incredibly overpriced. Some nice anime finds and of course, as mentioned, the crepes are done VERY well and... More

Harajuku-spent the day with my 20 year old daughter. Loved Harajuku- lots of bargains. Crepes were yummy but definately not if your lactose intolerant!! Soooo much cream... short walk to Meiji Shrine & gardens which was beautiful.

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.
