Omotesando was really a cool area which to me was a hignend shopping paradize - both foreign and local brands. Something different from Ginza (mainly department stores), those were all on the streets with individual buildings/ retails and hence it was quite exclusive. Do not expect anything cheap here but it was a great place for window shopping if you... More

The main street were luxurious street with several high end Shopping. But if you walk around into the alley, there are lots of cute little cafe and also local fashion brands. My favorite place to go when in Omotesando is Aoyama Flower and Tea House.

As many have mentioned this neighbourhood is packed with branded stores. Most are world class brands, while you will find brands with acceptable price. There are also smaller roads in between shops and many brands are there also. If you pay close attention some of them have interesting offers. I really enjoyed my visit in this area. The nearest station... More

My fave spot in Tokyo for having sightseeing, give a romantic feeling because of the setting and illumination during december, i think i like omotesando better than ginza because ginza is about the highest and the spektakuler display while omotesando give more intimate feeling. Exploring the area behind the main street is also very nice in omotesando, i stop by... More

This is probably one of the best areas in Tokyo if you like up market shopping, Paris type tree-lined streets and interesting restaurants because it is all here. Access is via the Ginza Line or a short walk from Harajuku Station on the JR Yamanote line. Walk the Paris style main street but also go behind into some of the... More

This is not what you would call a "hidden gem:" virtually everyone knows that Omotesando is the Rodeo Drive of Tokyo. Having said that, it is remarkably quiet and lush, a very pleasant walking experience. The shops are mostly terrifically expensive, but their architecture and design are truly unique and make for a great afternoon out. The museum located at... More

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.
