If your kids are into sneakers and brands like Supreme and BAPE this is the shopping street for them. But bring your cheque book

You can walk along Cat Street from either the Shibuya side or the side ending on Omotesando Dori, at one end Harajuku Station. It is a comparatively quiet, pleasant stroll, with fashion shops and eateries. Couples with a day, half day visit to Harajuku and...More

Cat street is essentially a pedestrian thoroughfare full of quaint, trendy & off-beat shops & offers a pleasant distraction from all the shopping centre & crowds - i would recommend it as a great way to get from the Meiji Shrine in Yoyogo Park to...More

It was late afternoon I went and it was very quiet compared to other fashion places I’ve been to around Tokyo at the same time. I think maybe it was in the high price ranges. Although it was a nice street to walk through.

Supposed to be a street of up-and-coming brands, as opposed to the established high-end brands on more expensive streets, Cat Street turned out to be not much more than a slightly pretentious neighbourhood fashion street. On the plus side: it is pedestrianised. On the minus...More

Really love the nice and not-so-busy street (as compared to the main part of Shibuya). It felt good just walking down the street, watching people and window shopping.

I stumbled upon this area while wandering through the Shibuya district. Filled with small shops as well as high end stores, there's a little bit of everything here. On some of the side streets there are little restaurants and street food counters. Its a fun...More

We walked up Cat Street from Shibuya to Harajuku. It has a lot of quirky shops, good coffee and interesting street stalls at the end. Well worth the walk

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.
