Walked down Takeshita and Cat Streets to Shibuya. Cat was much less crowded! It was so cute, and had good food options. I wish it weren't raining, then it might have been my favorite day. Bring cash! Many shops don't take credit.

But it is a good way to walk from harajuku to Shibuya. When you get to kiddyland in Harajuku you will find cat street. There a some nice shops. A lobster place on he corner was very popular for takeaway. I didn't want to part with 1000 yen for a lobster half size baguette.

Great place for a still, definitely a different pace from harajuku. Many reviews mention cute quirky resale shops, but in fact these are primarily designer resale mixed in with things like Oakley shops. So it's not so different from other shopping areas in the end in terms of what you find or the prices.

Loved this area! I think i went nearly everyday here. Loved the vibe, the shops were to my liking, the people were cool and some really nice tucked away food places! For me a must visit area on any trip!

Found this place walking around Shibuya, different from the tall skyscrapers but very nice. In fact I think I would get tired of such tall buildings very soon. This street was a nice break from it.

After Takeshita-dori and other jam-packed streets, we hit the quieter Oriental Bazaar and then this pleasant pedestrian street. It's full of up-market specialty shops and restaurants, sort of a California or ski-resort feel. We didn't stop at any of the shops but it was a nice walk and led us to Shibuya, for the famous Scramble.

It's quieter and not as crowded or chaotic as other streets, which I liked. The street has a hipster feel and is lined with funky shops and cafes. Had a lazy afternoon just window shopping, having a leisure stroll and enjoying the cool weather.

We went in winter so the harajuka girls and boys were more subdued in dress. But it's nice traffic free street of funky shops, great cafes, and interesting people and goods - well worth a stroll. Easy acces by rail and near other more commercial shopping strips

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.
