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.

I was expecting a lot of cat stores because its called "Cat Street" but I only found one. The rest of the stores were designer stores that you can find in America. I was expecting more unique stores...

Tokyo has many fashion hubs and this is one of them, it has many trendy shops, the most exotic fashion, and not so exotic you can find it here, If you want to buy clothes, here's the place, some small shops has reasonable places, other big stores can offer more options. This place contributes to the Tokyo cosmopolitan atmosphere. It's... More

We visited cat street (no cats) but much preferred nearby Makeshift street. Yes that is the real name. It was like a cross between Camden and carnaby street as I imagine it in the 60,s . the shops were different an fun, the atmosphere was buzzing and it really showed Japanese youth culture. Great place to browse and find things... More

Cat Street is home of Tokyo’s street fashion culture. It's heading upmarket but still dresses the teenager Tokyoites and other funky demographics .

Harajuku is an interesting area with lots of shops and trendy items. Cat Street has some interesting shops and is worth a stop if time allows. While it was fun to look around at the shops (and even try on some clothes) given all the things there are to do in Tokyo, I would not go out of the way... More

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.
