Harajuku And Omote Sando, Tokyo: 62 reviews and 111 photos

The Omotesando Boulevard is lined up with boutiques from the famous brands. If you are a shopperholic for branded goods, you must pay a pilgrimage to this street. Famous brands like Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Christian Dior, Loewe, Channel, Celine, United Colors of Benetton can be found along this busy street, The Omotesando Hills has some nice café and restaurant where you could chill out. Do no miss the Prada Building which is a highly photographed architecture.

If you are on a budget, have no fear as the 4 storey 100 yen Daiso is just around the corner located at Takeshita Dori and is just opposite the Harajuku Station.

Takeshita Dori is a street where you can find stall on both side of the lane selling teenagers clothing and accessories. The highlight for me will be the 100 yen shop which has four storey selling things from household and gardening equipment, cosmetics, food stuff, stationery, kitchen and dinning utensils.

You will have to check out the stalls when you are here. You will also be able to see some teenagers dressed in their costplay costumes

Harjuku is accessible by Harajuku (Chiyoda Line) Station, JR Shibuya Station and Omotesando Station (Chiyoda Line).
