Harajuku draws in a number of young Japanese girls and Takeshita Street is considered to be its core street.
It is a 400-meter street connecting Harajuku station to Meiji Street, lined with rows of trendy shops on both sides. As one of the most popular spots in Tokyo, the Harajuku area continues to embody Japan’s “Kawaii” culture.


The crepes are a must on Takeshita Street

One of the main attractions of Takeshita Street is its crepe shops. There are three crepe shops to choose from, so pick your favorite one!
As you enter the street, you will immediately see a crepe shop called “Sweet Box” and their crepes are heavenly, as the soft crepe and the filling of fluffy fresh cream create the perfect harmony.

Purikura Shop NOA (プリクラSHOP NOA) is a shop that specializes in purikura, or photo stickers, with a selection of the latest purikura machines available.

With the purikura machines, you can photograph yourself and have it made into a sticker on the spot. Depending on the types of machines, you can also download the photos digitally.

Many of the machines have features that makes your eyes bigger (a LOT bigger), so you might be quite surprised with the result.

One of the great thing about Harajuku is that majority of the shops are quite affordable, making it a great shopping spot for teens.
At “WEGO” or “Spinns” (スピンズ), you can find fashion in trend for a very reasonable price. There are shops for shoes, accessories, and other goods as well, so have fun finding your favorite shops!


Look for souvenirs at the 100 Yen Shop

8

The all 100-yen shop, Daiso, is right near the Harajuku Station.
100-yen shops can be seen all around Tokyo, but the store on Takeshita Street especially has a great line-up of make-up products, targeting the teens of Harajuku. They also have a line of products that can only be seen in Japan, which would make for great souvenirs. You might doubt that all these wide selection of products are all 100 yen, but believe it or not, they are! Stop by and look for yourself!
There are also snacks and other food sold for 100 yen, but before you go off and buy a ton, make sure to check out Don Quijote (ドン・キホーテ) or other supermarkets, and drugstores. They just might have it for a cheaper price!
