Shibuya, Harajuku & Omotesando
Shibuya and Harajuku are two of the trendiest parts of Tokyo when it comes to fashion. Both are hubs of Japanese and international popular brands. While Harajuku has an arty youthful vibe, with colourful narrow streets and Instagram-worthy snacks, Shibuya has a wider range of popular shopping options. It’s also home to the renowned Shibuya Crossing, the world’s busiest pedestrian crossing, and the statue of loyal dog Hachiko.
Omotesando is a popular spot for luxury shopping and people-watching, with its relaxed vibe, outdoor cafes and wide tree-lined boulevard likened to Paris’ Champs-Elysées. Look out for the many cutting-edge buildings designed by prominent domestic and overseas architects, including the fantastic mirrored entrance to Tokyu Plaza.
