A very busy street full of quirky little shops selling clothes. Lots of places to eat and drink and watch the world go by. Definitely worth a visit when in Tokyo to see or buy the distinct fashions.

If you come here expecting to see a hotbed of Japan's crazy subcultures you'll be disappointed. Expect a lot of tourists, a lot of local kids, and sadly a lot of African guys trying to sell you things. If you've been to Camden in London...More

Not my scene, best for teens with commercial or sometimes quirky tastes. It gets crowded on a Sunday. The area around it is slightly mellower and pleasant.

Essential place to visit while in Tokyo. Get a bargain in one of the many shops and see the teenagers in unique fashion. At the top end near the station is a beautiful cat Cafe that is worth a visit ( if your into cats)

It's a kind of a crowded place, but there is a good reason for it. There are plenty of shops and sweets stores. If you like creeps and candy, then this is the place to be.

The street is extremely crowded however each shop has nice items for young people. It is noisy with young women calling out to invite you into their store. But we found a Daiso! Love Daiso - 100yen and up shop.

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.
