Neighborhood: 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.

I recommend just walking back and forth here instead of standing in the middle of the crowd and taking a photo. The best spots where you can take a slow mo or timelapse would be at Starbucks, at the Shibuya Mark City or if you're staying at Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu, there's a good view

In Japan, they have many shopping streets, that are "covered" (where you will not be exposed to rain and sunshine) but this one is an "open air".

Just next to the famous "Shibuya crossing", there are many shops around the area, besides food and beverages, there are also pharmacies, souvenir and gifts shops, shoes and IT shops etc, and you will be spoiled for choices for food and shopping.

I do notice that there are more tourists here than locals and not surprising at all and so be prepared for the "noises" and the people pushing at times. But it's quite fun and interesting to be indulged in the local way of life!

Shopping and exploring this area was fun. Great crepes and desserts in the 109 building! Honestly, the "scramble" is overrated but the area is still totally worth a visit!

A very busy area including the infamous crossing - they have lots of restaurants and laces to shop - would recommend later afternoon/evening so you can see the amazing neon lights. Great place to wonder around and soak up Tokyo - good for family

Busy street with shops and restaurants when you come off the famous Shibuya Crossing. The street has a lot of (flashy) neon lights and at night it is nice to stroll around and watch people. The shops and restaurants however are not really special, so for good shopping you may better want to go the shopping malls at Shinjuku, Ginza or Tokyo Solamachi.
