  • Great shops. Clean atmosphere. Can get a little crowded.
  • It's a street with foreign brands, nothing you haven't seen before. It's a very quiet shopping street, no cars will pass and there are surprisingly a lot of coffee shops too! A nice walk here but I didn't buy anything!
  • For all who are not really enjoying the Shibuya main shopping district with the hectic scramble. This street is much more beautiful and has more exquiste shops.
  • Built when the first Tokyo Olympics was held over the retired Shibuya river. This street connects between Harajuku and Shibuya, and it is surprisingly quiet. Considered as the back street of Harajuku, it is now filled with new shops and perfect for strolling away from the craziness of the main streets.
  • I love this street. It just feels like you suddenly leave the panic of Shibuya and you just stroll around a young-oriented cool shopping street.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
