Shopping Harajuku

Take the battered old lift to the third floor of a multi-tenant building, where you’ll find this cosy slice of store that dates all the way back to 1993. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in reputation – widely regarded as the daddy of Shibuya vintage clothing shops, its carefully chosen, on-trend selections make most of its competitors look like the jumped-up thrift stores they really are. Toro specialises in decent quality vintage clothing from the US and Europe, for both men and women, and also does original remakes. The prices are a little steep, but the staff are friendly and the clothing full of character. Its sister shop, Otoe in Harajuku, is also worth a visit.
