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

After Yoyoko Park you can wander down to Cat Street a funky little area with cafes and bars and some high end shops. Its not as busy as the main streets and you can draw a breath here. Didnt see many cats tho. Found a...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.

This was not what we expected, there is a lot of expensive shops, and in my opinion boring shops like Hilfiger and the likes. There are some second hand shops but they were not that interesting. It's a nice street for a stroll, but the...More

There is everything on this street. Retseraunts, coffee shops, trendy clothing stores, you name it. It's a pedestrian street, so the hustle and bustle of the Tokyo cars are not there. It's quite and an excellent place to shop. When you cross the bridge at...More

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.
