Definitely must be the busiest street in the world.

A sea of unending humanity just keeps flooding the street.

Interesting street shopping cheaper than the huge showrooms on the high streets.

The reason for the low score is that this was the only place we really came face to face with some shady looking characters, they weren’t japanese and had the feel of the types of characters you might see in a souq. Just a feeling. Quite aggressive.

Don’t let this put you off, we did not feel in danger, but it was against the overall feeling of our Tokyo trip, which was good natured, polite and friendly people and here and golden gai was the only time we stepped out of that bubble.

Harajuku area itself is really nice though, we would just avoid Takeshita street unless you are looking for a shop or item in particular.

Crowdest street in Tokyo for me. Personally I didn't find this street anything special. There are Korea cosmetic shops, souvenirs shops, crepes stalls etc. The shops are catered for youngsters. I think the malls in Harajuku near this street are more interesting for shopping. If your time is limited in Tokyo, shinjuku or shibuya or ginza is better choice

A crowded and totally ctazy street with Japans weirdest stuff. Going fril cat & owl cafés, ice cream in crazy forms to dress up stores.
Let yourself go and enjoy a million impressions.

This is a famous shopping street in Tokyo. Be sure to enter it from the Yoyogi Park end - The entrance is close to Harajuku station. It's a busy street of 'edgy' clothes shops, so is a great place to see the more fashion conscious of Japan's population. There are also lots of places to eat, whether a snack or a sit-down meal.
