I walked on Cat Street for the first time and would only do it again if I wanted to walk between Omotesando and Shibuya. I didn't find the shops interesting and the street was pretty bleak.

The low rise buildings, the streets that are barely passed by vehicles. The quirky shops and vibe of this place is definitely something to see and experience, we got here at night. I can spend an afternoon to evening here just watching people and immersing in the culture. A definite must see.

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.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood 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.
