What You Can Expect
Explore Takeshita and its side streets, which are lined with fashion boutiques, used-clothing stores and up-and-coming designers. Browse the aisles of one of the largest 100 yen shops (dollar stores) for a bargain. See the local teenagers engage in cosplay (costume play) where they dress up to resemble anime (Japanese cartoon) characters, celebrities or their own styles.
After a clash of color and riot of fashion, wander down to the posh end of town to Omotesando Hills shopping mall. Here you can browse the high-end fashion stores featuring the designer brand names of Louis Vuitton and Prada to name but a few.
Visit Kiddy Land, a famous toy store that has stood on Omotesando for decades, although these days it is known more for its Hollywood celebrity clients, before continuing to Jingu Crossing which houses the more affordable brands of H&M and Forever 21.
Your tour ends at Harajuku Station where you can take the train back to Keio Plaza Hotel.
This was a fantastic tour. I took my daughter to Japan as a college graduation present, and she loved the shopping and food in Harajuku. Our tour guide Meka was truly wonderful. Meka was knowledge and friendly and even helped us with navigating the subway and the Japan Rail (JR) lines. If you are going to Japan you should take this tour, and ask for Meka.
Our guide was wonderful but the tour was not good value as it is easy to get around on your own in Harajuku.
