We went a few times to Harajuku and this street was never other than heaving with people at all times of the day and night. Lots of fun with crazy little young fashion shops. Worth a visit what-ever your age. The only place in the...More

I thought I'd see teens wearing Lolita or goth fashion, but everyone...More
Crowded on a Thursday afternoon, can't imagine what it must be like on a weekend. Typical tourist area, cute stuff but not a whole lot we hadn't seen already while out shopping. Recommend only if you have teenage daughters that would enjoy the experience.
There are so many store, speciality shops and tourists on this street that it can make you dizzy trying to decide what to buy or what to look at.
a lot of the items for sale are very touristy, but it's interesting to look.
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.
