There is so much to do and see here! On Saturdays and Sundays, you're like sardines packed together, walking up and down this street. If that doesn't sound enjoyable at all to you, try going on a rainy/cold day. When it was rainy, there were...More

Tons of shopping areas, but also SUPER packed. We checked out a couple of shops and walked around window shopping. There are also snacks and food you can get along the way. Its definitely a good stop by for maybe 1-2 hrs.

Very cool and funky street. The crowds are very big, even on a Wednesday as the street is also very narrow! Best access from Harajuku Station Takeshita street exit and just across the road. mcDonalds has very clean toilets if you need the restroom! Great...More

There was a time when Takeshita street, as a heart of Harajuku, would be the place that you would have to visit in order to understand what Harajuku is about. Today, it is an overcrowded street with thousands of people trying to pass through as...More

Interesting fashion shops, some nice cafes, LOTS of crepe stores (getting one must be part of the experience). There’s a cute ice cream store that makes your ice cream into animal characters too. A few people walking around in interesting fashion outfits. Near the station...More

Really good fun, lots of fun shops to look at! Lots of cheap souvenirs too so ideal if you want to take some presents back. Just avoid the animal cafes, none of these are ethical and it's no place for animals

I went on the weekend to Takeshita street. It's located after you come out of Harajuku station. It was so packed with tourist and very little shade on a hot day. There was loads of souvenir shops, Daiso, Calbee, crepes, bubble tea shops. It was...More

My 18 year old daughter didn’t even enjoy this. It’s a narrow, very crowded street filled with junk stores and bad food. Maybe we weren’t there at the right time, but there weren’t even cool Japanese kids in cultural or fashionable streetwear. Very disappointing.

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.

Walk down Takeshita dori, find Alta Harajuku almost at the end of the road and go to the basement. There next to all the Prikua machines, there's a shop that'll make a 3D figure that looks just like you!
