Cat Street is really a surprise! with lot of fun shops, and not so busy. A second hand shop with designer clothes, shoes and bags is the max!

Cat Street which runs between Shibuya and Omote Sando is one of my all-time favourite places to meander. Whether it's a weekday or weekend, there's always something to look at but of course the weekend offers a larger crowd with more interesting sights along the way. The shops here are quirky, appealing to individual tastes and have that exquisite Japanese... More

A break from some of the big name stores, we ventured down Cat Street - actually we sought it out! It was a nice diversion, and you'll appreciate it. Not that you've come to Japan to do major shopping, but even the walking is a nice break. It feels more slower paced and relaxing, quaint and charming.

This is by far one of the best Up scale Street Malls in the World. Better than Rodeo Drive or Design District. Each store is located on a Unique Building, is nice just to walk and look at the building beside the great window displays

I was passing through the area walking from Shibuya to Harajuku. While the street appears to have shops that mostly cater to young people, the less number of motor vehicles traversing it made it a pleasant evening stroll. I did stop in at the Candy Showtime shop to pick up some handmade fruit candy to bring home.

If you're into current fashion and looking for some new clothes come to Cat Street! There are some really cool vintage shops. Although it is quite pricey it is not much different to prices in London! Also I don't remember the name of it but there was a small shop that sold some of the best Takoyaki I have tried

My sons are Hype-beast, so this was one of the places we had to visit for fashions. Very trendy cosmopolitan place to shop for clothing from avant garde designers. The architecture here is also so forward and modern to admire. Unique stores, cool atmosphere and trendy fashions. There are also some nice cafes and eateries in the area. Sorry no... More

This is the street where youngsters fit the best, in my opinion. There are a lot of trendy shops there and it's a really cute place. There's a sandwich stall there and it's very crowded. I think it looks really good, but I didn't have a chance to try it because of the long line. I like it because it's... More

A little bit away from Omotesando, but so much more affordable than the high end shops on Omotesando. Very interesting brands have their stores here, less show-off you could say. Also more quiet than Omotesando. We found a nice second hand store with Japanese designers. Some of their clothes were very affordable.

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.
