  Neighbourhoods and Streets

Harajuku is Tokyo's fashion destination for youth, offering a glimpse of the quirky and unique styles prevalent in Japanese culture. Covering the area from Harajuku Station to Omotesando, Harajuku has both – trendy independent boutiques selling one-of-a-kind kawaii pieces, and larger international chain stores. Omotesando is known for its striking buildings which house luxury retailers such as Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Alexander McQueen.

The neighborhood, especially around Yoyogi Park, is a great place for observing people as it attracts aficionados of Japanese street fashion and associated subcultures. You can come across styles spanning the entire range from baby colors and flowing fabrics to dark Gothic frames, including Victorian- and French Rococo-inspired Lolita styles, teen-glam gyaru, visual kei's western glam-rock influence, designer kimonos, and Mori girls.

Attractions in the area include the Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi National Stadium which hosted events during the 1964 Summer Olympics, Togo Shrine, Ota Memorial Museum of Art, and Nezu Museum.
