Beautiful street with upscale boutiques left and right

A gorgeous street with lines of trees on each side and all fancy boutiques. I didn't go to any of them; instead I went to Kiddyland for my Studio Ghibli fix.

I love this place not only because of the beautiful stores in the main street, but because you can walk the little streets around the area and find great boutiques, 2nd hand shops, cafes, etc. Loved this area. Even a great place to stay in Tokyo.

After the crowds in Harajuku it was a pleasure to visit this area for the upmarket shops and boutiques without the throngs. Many of the boutiques were housed in very modern and quirky examples of modern architecture. Great place to stroll on a Saturday afternoon

We didn't really go to shop, but known as the Champs Élysée of Tokyo it had to be on the list of things to do. Beautiful wide tree lined avenue with a lot of top brand names. Managed to find a local sushi restaurant towards the bottom which was also very good Certainly worth a wander

Omotesando is a wide tree lined boulevard that begins with two enormous stone lanterns leading to Meiji Jingu. It is full of upscale international brand stores, galleries and cafes. Omotesando features many avant-garde buildings designed by outstanding architects, e.g. Laforet Harajuku, Omotesando Hills, Gyre etc. The side street, Cat Street is a fashion street not to be overlooked.

This is a great area to shop, eat and experience Tokyo. Ginza is great, but this is more of a shopping area. Great places to eat. Easily accessible from public transportation including Harajuku station. You can explore and spend a day - rain or shine.

In walking distance from Harajuku, Omotesando has many trendy and pretty shops to look at. Whilst I didn't buy anything, I found the backstreets of this area was where it was at! Be sure to explore the hidden cafes and boutique stores.

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.
