Harajuku is one of the most iconic neighborhoods in Tokyo and a famous tourist attraction. The neighborhood became famous through the unique clothing style of the young Japanese that live here, named after the district. Harajuku is an important center of youth culture in Tokyo, but also has plenty to offer for adults. The main street in Harajuku, Omotesando, is lined with expensive designer stores and fancy restaurants, in line with Tokyo’s modern international outlook. It is Tokyo’s version of the Champs-Elysees. The side streets of Harajuku are filled with thrift stores, little boutiques, and trendy food stalls, especially Takeshita Dori. This is arguably the hippest part of the city and a very vibrant example of the fashion-forward style of the Harajuku youth. Although it gets busy on the weekends, Sundays are the best time to see Japanese boys and girls decked out in the typical Harajuku clothing style.
