So overcrowded with locals and tourists alike. The shops are way too cheesy for me. There must be like a hundred crepe shops on this street alone! If you're a first time visitor, definitely walk down the street and check it out, but it's definitely...More

Pink. Adorable. Bright. Shiny. Quirky. Harajuku! If you like clothes with cats on them, this is your place. It's all here on Takeshita-dori where the famous kawaii fashion style hails from. You can find all the stylish Japanese teenagers here eating swirls of cotton candy,...More

Between Yoyogi and Omotesando, Harajuku is a fun place full with teenagers. Lots of shops selling accessories (dog clothes anyone?) at outrageous prices. Walk barely one street away from Takeshita street and everything becomes much calmer. I really recommend making a detour to the Togo...More

Takeshita is a small but unique area in Harajuku where we can find a lot of locals dressing uniquely and to do window shopping as well. There are a lot of cafes, restaurants and dessert places in this area too. Worth a visit if you...More

Crazy place, about 80/20 locals to tourists, but still worth the visit. We went there twice; first on a Monday lunch time , it was so packed we could hardly move. Second time was Wednesday evening; fewer crowds but still as much fun

Cute side of Japan with lots of shops selling cute cartoon-y things. There are lots of shops selling sneakers and clothes, and lots of creperies.

There are a lot of shops along the street which you cannot missed out. Oh the Daiso Harajuku is also situated here! Can buy lots of things such as cheap japanese goods started from ¥100!

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.

It will be really hard going around with a stroller, it is very hard just to walk without bumping into people every couple of minutes, but if you need one for the rest of the day, you could leave it at a Harajuku Station... More
