Description

Explore the exciting district of Harajuku, renowned worldwide for its mix of youth culture and extreme street fashion. See where rock stars and fashionistas shop to create new styles and trends -- for music videos and magazines. Browse the high-end fashion stores at Omotesando Hills and look for a bargain at the 100 yen shops (dollar stores). This is the must do tour for all trend setters and fashion lovers.

Meet your guide at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku and travel like a local by train to Harajuku Station. Harajuku is one of Tokyo’s most eclectic shopping districts and home to a distinctive style of urban fashion. If you've ever wondered where those strange outfits featured in music clips and magazines come from, well wonder no more -- it's right here in the subculture world of Harajuku.

Explore Takeshita and its side streets, which are lined with fashion boutiques, used-clothing stores and up-and-coming designers. Browse the aisles of one of the largest 100 yen shops (dollar stores) for a bargain. See the local teenagers engage in cosplay (costume play) where they dress up to resemble anime (Japanese cartoon) characters, celebrities or their own styles.

After a clash of color and riot of fashion, wander down to the posh end of town to Omotesando Hills shopping mall. Here you can browse the high-end fashion stores featuring the designer brand names of Louis Vuitton and Prada to name but a few.

Visit Kiddy Land, a famous toy store that has stood on Omotesando for decades, although these days it is known more for its Hollywood celebrity clients, before continuing to Jingu Crossing which houses the more affordable brands of H&M and Forever 21.

Your tour ends at Harajuku Station where you can decide to take the train back to Keio Plaza Hotel.
