The area
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.

No cats but still a great street
Aug 2019
Like many others said, the name "cat" street might be misleading of what the street consists of. There are many cute boutique stores and snacks, but no cats in sight.

Quiet shopping side street from the main Harajuku or Takeshita street. Lots of good shopping and cafes. Also nice to stroll along.

Misnamed cat "walk" street
Jan 2020
Our guide explained the origins of the name cat street. It was named in honour of cat walks, where models sashay up and down in their finery looking into the very elegant shops that align there. I saw no fashionista models, but the shops and eateries were nice. It's a relatively quiet street; a lovely reprieve from the other busy areas of Harajuku and Shibuya.

I don’t get why it’s called cat street. There is a lot of boutique shopping here. Not really my scene.

Nice place to visit

Originally got the idea to visit this place from a guy I follow on YouTube that lives in Japan. Enjoyed the shops but I truly enjoyed taking the side streets. Really beautiful area and you'll find interesting small restaurants and shops off the main path.

Shopping heaven!
Oct 2019
Just off bustling Omotesando Road with its high end international fashion stores, Cat St provides a variety of quirky and cool boutiques, vintage and repurposed clothing stores and icafes. Could easily spend a couple of hours here.

great shopping
Sep 2019
Cat street is home to some awesome shopping while not in a busy street setting. This is quiet compared to the chaos that is down the street at Shibuya Crossing. The street is closed off to traffic so feel free to wonder around and find some good stuff. Make your way north to continue the shopping journey. This was a great area to stumble around all afternoon.

Quiet area for high end shopping
Sep 2019 • Couples
This is a quiet street near Takeshita Street, but not as colorful and busy. It has cute little buildings and many high end stores like Tiffany and Co. and Roxy.
We didn't stop to buy anything, but wandered around a bit. The area is nice, but that's about it.

Relaxing walk after Harujuku!
Mar 2019
This street is a relaxing walk with many international shops. Cat Street is curvy and wide, with plenty of street photography opportunities. If one wants to shop or just window shop, Cat Street is great for both!

A street filled with interesting shops linking Shibuya and Omotesando
May 2019
A visit to Tokyo is not complete if you do not have a stroll along Cat Street. That is if you like hipster vibes, second hand shops, boutique-style specialty shops selling everything from trendy high quality leather backpacks to artisanal sweets.

One of my favorite stops is Nozy Coffee, a roastery which has enjoyed increasing popularity. The coffee is strong and aromatic, and worth a try.

Be sure to follow some of the smaller streets leading from Cat Street. You'll discover cute cafe's and eateries where the hip people from Omotesando hangs out.
