Takeshita Dori

Shopping Harajuku

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Takeshita Dori stands as a symbol of Tokyo’s collision of street cultures. Along this narrow sloping street (which runs from Harajuku station to Meiji Dori) you’ll find stalls selling photos of fresh-faced ‘idols’ to star-struck schoolgirls, while the hip-hop boutique next door pumps out gangster rap. Shops specialising in ‘Gothic Lolita’ nurse and maid uniforms stand next to those selling retro-punk fashions and Beatles bootlegs. A must-see. Visit at the weekend for the full-on experience.




Transport: Harajuku Station (Yamanote line), Takeshita exit or Meiji-Jingumae Station (Chiyoda line), exit 2.
