Nice to walk along Cat street from Harajuku to Shibuya. Many shops and interesting side streets with hidden cafes and alternative shops.

Well designed boutiques lined the street. Not much crowd here even on a Friday night so there's lots of space to stroll down the street leisurely and pop in and out of the shops.

Not sure what was considered hip about this street. It was quite a pretty street though but you could see that elsewhere in Tokyo. So I would suggest to skip this street.

Expecting cats or anything cat-related? You'll be disappointed. Expecting smallish and high-end clothing boutiques of interesting variety? This is your jam.

Lovely quiet street with many shops and restaurants. Different vibe from Takeshita-dori. Many designer shops. We recommend going to launch at "The Great Burger" that is near.

A pedestrian mall with lots of quirky shops and a couple of used clothing stores that sell high end labels. I found the prices for these to be fairly high and not much less than to buy new

The shops were bland and the actual set of the area is poor for window shopping. Very crowded and I likely will not return.

I was passing through the area walking. While the street appears to hop. I stoped in at the Candy shop to pick up some fruit candy to bring home. All price are not cheap. But this place is easy to buy anything.

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.
