    Omote Sando: luxe capital of Japan

    by machomikemd Updated Dec 10, 2009

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    luxury shopping at it's best, this is shibuya's answer to Ginza (yes, Harajuku is part of Shibuya!). Harajuku Shopping then shifts to the very upscale Omotesando, which is a broad, tree-lined avenue leading downhill from the southern end of the JR Harajuku station. This is the other side to Harajuku Fashion and its challenge to Shibuya and Ginza. Not only is the street full of cafes and international brand clothing boutiques, but now features the very up market Omotesando Hills. If Paris or Milan is the center of the world of fashion design, then Omotesando is the center of world fashion consumption.

    What to buy: In Omotesando, prices are sky high that you will maxx out your credit card! Be ready to be charged an Arm and A Leg!

    What to pay: maxx out your platinum credit card!, an arm and a Leg!

    Takeshita Dori Street: Teenage Japanese and Goth Fashion

    by machomikemd Updated Dec 10, 2009

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    it is a teenager shoppers haven and fun way to do girl watching of Kawaii Japanese Girls heheh. The parallel streets of takeshita dori for female teen shopping and omotesando for luxury shopping! they are just 200 meters apart. Shopping in Harajuku starts opposite Harajuku Station, Takeshita-dori is a narrow street packed with young fashionable people and lined with fashion boutiques and cafes. This is definitely the place to be seen if you are young Tokyoite, but well worth visiting as a tourist. Takeshita-dori represents the cutting edge of fashion in Tokyo where you can see all the latest in Japanese street fashion and then buy in the boutiques.

    What to buy: lots of stuff, depends on what you buy, teen fashion in takeshita dori starts at 2000 yen for clothes, 3,000 yen for shoes, 450 yen for harajuku crepes.

    What to pay: maxx out your platinum credit card

    teenage stuff more choices kawaii

    Daiso: the number 1 100 yen store

    by machomikemd Updated Nov 20, 2009

    0.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the number one discount store in japan. for those on a budget, these 100 yen shops offers a cheap way to buy japanese goods (but they sell mostly home furnishings and a little bit of japanese trinkets). There are thousands of 100 yen shops across Japan, ranging in size from multi-storey "department stores" to small corners in shopping malls. Market leader Daiso operates over two thousand stores nationwide and again these shops are located everywhere. the largest 100 yen shops in central Tokyo is Daiso Harajuku in Takeshita Dori! (in the picture).

    What to buy: forks, Kitchen knives, dippers, microwave containers, coffee filters, detergent, aluminum foil, Boxes, report pads, memo pads, pens, pins, calligraphy brushes, Hammers, measuring tapes, pliers, screwdriver sets, cutter knives and lots of more stuff.

    What to pay: 100 yen or less per item

    There are lots of shops located along the streets of Harajuku, but they mainly cater for teenage girls who come here in flocks. Expect to see a lot of clothing shops and those selling women's accessories and cute stuff :)
