Just too crowded

To be honest... It depends on style. The shoes were worth it but the clothes seemed overpriced and was not really into the fashion . Was also quite put off by the enormous crowd... read more

Have a taste of Japanese culture from the 90s with the flashy style and people wearing high heels with colorful hair. There are few good restaurants along the way as well and it's very close to shibuya as well.

Harajuku was an amazing place to visit so many markets and shops and people. People everywhere it rained on the second time we went there and down the alley way all you could see was wall to wall of floating umbrellas . Good prices to pick up clothes and shoes and bags...

takeshita street is pretty short, but jam packed. had a nice mixture of little shops and places to eat. great little brewery pub around the corner (Baird Beer, loved the little yakitori). If your not into crowds, it's best visited while school is in session and when it's not raining (even though crowds are smaller, the umbrellas and the fight... More

This street is full of life. It has such a great atmosphere, albeit very crowded. Lots of shops and unique things to buy. Nice little cafes and crepe places too. There were a lot of Harajuku girls wandering around which was fun to see. Would definitely recommend.

Speak to any Japanese people, they will recommend Harajuku as a hip place to shop. The prices are reasonable and there is a variety of stores to look through. I would recommend it especially for females aged 20-25. There are also a lot of second hand stores in Harajuku if you like thrift shopping. Prices are on the expensive side... More

I did not shop a lot since the fashion style is very different from mine, but I do enjoy walking in this street. Maybe I'll get to shop during summer since most of the shops sell winter attire, too bad I'm from a tropical country. But to eat the famous Marion Crepes and buy the potato chips from Calbee!!

This little street is very crowded with locals and tourists. You can find lots of souvenirs, accessories and clothes in the "Kawaii" spirit. The atmosphere is very nice and vivid :)

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.
