Located directly across from the exit of JR Harajuku Station and very crowded especially on weekends, it is very popular with local young teenagers and tourists.

It is considered the birthplace of many of Japan’s fashion trends, and the street is lined with some very unique shops on both the street level and second floor.

  1. I love the crepes there. Whenever I visit Harajuku I deliberately get 1 or 2 crepes. It’s just that I don’t have the opportunity to go there very often now. ;-(
