HARAJUKU

The area around Meiji Dori Street linking Shibuya and Harajuku and Omotesando (a street) leading to Aoyama is home to some great top class brand shops like Louis Vuitton and Burberry. But taking a few steps off the beaten trail will open up an entire world of brand shops that aren't as famous but still carry extremely refined products.

The area garnering the most popularity among these side streets are the shops along Cat Street (formal name as “Kyu Shibuya-gawa Yuhodo”). This area is called Ura-harajuku (usually shortened to "Urahara"), and is frequented by the Japanese young and hip. A huge assortment of genres are present, including places like "Fabiane Roux", a brand that provides a sophisticated adult look for women, and "RADD LOUNGE", a brand serving up trendy fashions like the "street look". Each shop is compact, and many of them don't put out shop signs in easy to see places, so they tend to look like private houses at first glance.

The area also features an abundance of cafes and restaurants like the authentic Italian cuisine eatery "LOCANDA F.Q." and "La Fee Delice", which serves up "galette" crepes made from buckwheat flour, a treat originating in Brittany in France. These are great places to rest when tired from shopping. Walking along this street will take you right into the midst of the young Japanese hip crowd clad in the latest fashions.

SHIBUYA Experience cutting edge culture

Shibuya is the center of trend evolution. In addition to fashion, this area is home to the newest in culture in all of its many forms, including music, movies, and the like.

Streets of all sizes expand outward from the central point of Shibuya Station, each one brimming with its own unique ambiance. The first thing that attracts the eye as you walk through Hachiko-guchi (Hachiko Exit) with its Hachiko Statue is the fashion building "109" sandwiched in between Dogenzaka and Bunkamura Dori Street. Extremely popular with teenage girls, 109 is a mecca of the style called "gyaru fashion". Walking through "Center Gai", with its fast food shops and relatively inexpensive brands, and "Spain-zaka", with its extensive lineup of general shops, make your way to Koen Dori Street.

There are buses available to take you back to Shibuya Station from Shibuya Kyuyakusho Mae, but if you have time, you could choose to enjoy strolling to the station along the fun Fire Dori Street with its lineup of select shops.

The west side of the station in the area sandwiched between Dogenzaka and Bunkamura Dori Street is home to numerous live music venues and clubs, and the nights are bustling with young music lovers.
