Harajuku is a section of Tokyo known for its wild fashions. This is where you can spot local teens on the weekends, dressed-up in colorful and outlandish punk, goth, and anime costumes. But there’s more to Harajuku than just its extreme fashions. Sights to see include the Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi Park, and the Ometasando and Takeshita-dori shopping streets. You can’t go to Harajuku without people-watching and shopping.

The Meiji Shrine is considered Tokyo’s most popular and sacred Shinto shrine. It houses the Meiji forest, stunning gardens, and a memorial hall dedicated to Emperor Meiji, the man who many credit to modernizing Japan. Then there’s Yoyogi Park, known for its cherry blossom trees and religious festivals. 

Practical Info

Takeshita-dori is in the northern part of Harajuku, and is a narrow street packed with people, small stores, and artistic cafes. Ometasando is in southern Harajuku and is a tree-lined avenue filled with high-end boutiques and big brands.

Harajuku is located in the south-west of Tokyo, in a section of the Shibuya ward. Visit on a Sunday, when you are guaranteed to see teens in their fashionable and elaborate costumes.
