fun shopping street

Reminded my husband and I of a miniature Champs-Elysses in Paris. Good variety of stores and people-watching. Love Kiddyland for kawaii plushies!

Nice tree lined boulevard, many brand names boutiques. Some nice cafes we passed along the way. If you keep on walking towards the Meiji Jinggu, Harajuku's Takeshita Street is very close by.

Take this review for what it's worth, I hate shopping so this was not for me. The area however is very nice, long streets with many shops. Come early to avoid the crowds, by midday its is incredibly busy. Droves of people arrive via Harajuku station.

I loved this district so much! As soon as I got out of the station and saw the Mocha Cat Cafe, I knew that this was my kind of place. With so many interesting restos and shops, I could spend days exploring every nook and cranny. Good for shopping and eating!

Always good for a stroll and enjoy yourself have some lunch and shaved ice. Can be very crowded on the weekends

You could be anywhere in the world with this collection of high end shops. Interesting but lots of better places to visit in Tokyo. If you must go have a look down some of the side lanes and roads at the smaller shops.

I visited for the architecture rather than the shops, since I was in the area and my guidebook said this street had some good examples of contemporary Tokyo architecture. It was a pleasant street with lots of upmarket shops. I'd say the buildings are nice enough but not terribly interesting or different. For shopping I'd say Ginza seemed better.

This area is incredible if you're interested on fashion and good food. Everything is close and you have plenty of options. If you're an architect or interested in architecture you'll have a lot to see and photograph. I recommend this area if you want to walk around. Simply amazing!

Thank Carlos Luis R

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.
