    What to Expect
    Explore the fascinating world of Tokyo’s street style subcultures as you shop 'til you drop in the city’s famous Harajuku district and swanky upscale Omotesando Hills. This shopping excursion and walking tour is the perfect opportunity to explore the incredible diversity of Japanese fashion while shopping for a few bargains along the way.

    Start you Harajuku discovery by meeting your guide in the morning at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku, where you’ll board a train like local and travel the short distance to the nearby Harajuku district. This fascinating district is a worldwide epicenter of urban fashion trends, playing host to a rotating cast of Japanese cosplayers, colorfully-dressed fashionistas and unique subcultures that come to the area to show off for the locals and foreigners alike.

    Begin your walking tour on Takeshita Street, a large thoroughfare with nearby side streets that are packed with vintage clothing shops, high-end boutiques and retail stores from up-and-coming designers. Make sure to stop by a 100-Yen shop, Japan’s version of a dollar store, where you can dig for bargains, and then keep your eyes out for the area’s resident cosplay performers, who dress up like Japanese anime (cartoon) characters and pose for the cameras.

    After Harajuku, head to the upscale shopping area at Omotesando Hills, a mall featuring many of Tokyo’s high-end fashion stores like Prada and Louis Vuitton, among others. Take a look at Kiddy Land, a well-known toy store that has called the Omotesando area home for several decades, then continue walking to Jingu Crossing, home base for discount fashion brands like H&M and Forever 21.

    Finish your tour back at Harajuku Station from which you can opt to return back to Shinjuku or stay in the area.
