A laboratory for future fashions

Frequently visited by young people in their trendsetting clothing, Harajuku is a continually evolving area where excentric fashion meets luxury stores and vintage stores. A few steps from Meiji-Jingu Shrine, it is the perfect example of the modern and traditional Tokyo juxtaposition.

Places You Must Visit in Harajuku

  • Takeshita-Dori is the most famous street in Tokyo. This pedestrian lane is the temple of Japanese Kawaii fashion and you can find everything popular with Japanese high school girls: clothes, accessories, makeup and even trendy foods. The street is also particularly popular for its sweet pancake shops!

  • Ura Harajuku: the more anonymous little alleys of Harajuku are full of trendy and vintage shops. You will also find there many restaurants and cafes like the Okonomiyaki expert, Sakura Tei.

  • Ometesando Avenue is home to luxury boutiques such as Louis Vuitton and various stores. Like the Kiddy Land over several floors where you can find products bearing the image of your favorite heroes or the large shopping center Tokyu Plaza, particularly popular for its Starbucks on the terrace.
