People from all over Japan and the world visit Takeshita-dori street.

Harajuku is a seat of youth culture where stylish items are readily available. Jam-packed with stores selling assorted goods, accessories, and clothes, Takeshita-dori street is constantly crowded with shoppers. Harajuku is the district where crepes, pancakes, and many other trends started, and a line can always be seen outside the many popular shops here and there. Meanwhile, the quiet stillness emanating from the Meiji Jingu Shrine can make one forget about the hustle and bustle of the city. Just a short walk away is the more sophisticated area of Omotesando. Artistic fashion buildings and galleries line up along the zelkova tree-lined street, where you can enjoy shopping, gourmet food and art.

The stunning harmony between the lined-up zelkova trees and Omotesando Hills.

Crepes—the specialty of Takeshita-dori street.
