Tokyo’s Harajuku Station is located in Yamamoto-line near Shinjuku and Shibuya. It would be a good idea to visit these locations on the same day. This place is famous for teenage cultures and fashion styles, and some historic sight-seeing.
Two main things you have to do in Harajuku.
1) Visit Takeshita-Dori (Takeshita Street)
Takeshita-Dori is a street for youth culture where stylish items are readily available. Full of stores selling assorted goods, accessories, and clothes, Takeshita-Dori street is always crowded with shoppers. The district where crepes, pancakes, and many other trends started and a line can always be seen outside the many popular shops here and there.
2) Visit Meiji-Jingu
One of Tokyo’s major shrines and it is located just next to Takeshita-Dori. It has a beautiful long nature walk before reaching the shrine.
Meanwhile, Harajuku is also a youngster fashion monster city.
Normally the crowd will gather on weekends or public holiday. ( Especially during Halloween )
Omotesando is near Takeshita-Dori. Just a short walk away there is the more sophisticated area of Omotesando. Artistic fashion buildings and galleries line up along the zelkova tree-lined street, where you can enjoy high brand shopping, gourmet food, and art.
