I stumbled upon this area while wandering through the Shibuya district. Filled with small shops as well as high end stores, there's a little bit of everything here. On some of the side streets there are little restaurants and street food counters. Its a fun...More

We walked up Cat Street from Shibuya to Harajuku. It has a lot of quirky shops, good coffee and interesting street stalls at the end. Well worth the walk

This is the craziest and most crowded street I have ever gone! As I was walking I saw a few go carts running at the street in a completely normal way, with some of the drivers dressed as... Pokemon!!!! You can find all kind of...More

Amazed by the absurdness of the products sold here. Absolutely magnificent. People are nice and everything is nice and tidy

There were no cats. Incredibly deceptive. We were fully expecting to play with some adorable felines. However our hopes were dashed entirely.

This entire Shibuya area is deceptive - you don't think it would have high-end stores, but it's block after block of amazing, high-end shopping. Usually, these types of stores are in overwhelmingly fancy areas (like Ginza for instance), but this was a residential area and...More

I didn’t know about this street before heading to Tokyo. We only went there in search of the White Atelier store to get customised Converse shoes - and realised Cat Street had a lot to offer. First and foremost this street is closed to traffic,...More

There were so many shops it is impossible to go to every each of them. From there you can get to harajuku district easily. Which is a must go!! Harajuku is the craziest and coolest place to go if you love fashion and being original!...More

I thought that this would be where we could purchase alternative goods from independent vendors, but found too many mainstream retailers. Maybe this was a good retail atra in years past, but definitely not in 2018.

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.

It's a great location, shops are open til 10pm ish as in most Tokyo stores. But Omotesando Dori is a couple of minutes stroll at end of Cat St, and is very very vibrant place. As are all the street on either side of this... More
