Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour includes a train ticket from Shinjuku to Harajuku, and visits Omotesando Hills.
Explore the fascinating world of Tokyo’s street style subcultures as you shop 'til you drop in the city’s famous Harajuku district and swanky upscale Omotesando Hills. This shopping excursion and walking tour is the perfect opportunity to explore the incredible diversity of Japanese fashion while shopping for a few bargains along the way.

Start you Harajuku discovery by meeting your guide in the morning at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku, where you’ll board a train like local and travel the short distance to the nearby Harajuku district. This fascinating district is a worldwide epicenter of urban fashion trends, playing host to a rotating cast of Japanese cosplayers, colorfully-dressed fashionistas and unique subcultures that come to the area to show off for the locals and foreigners alike.

Begin your walking tour on Takeshita Street, a large thoroughfare with nearby side streets that are packed with vintage clothing shops, high-end boutiques and retail stores from up-and-coming designers. Make sure to stop by a 100-Yen shop, Japan’s version of a dollar store, where you can dig for bargains, and then keep your eyes out for the area’s resident cosplay performers, who dress up like Japanese anime (cartoon) characters and pose for the cameras.

After Harajuku, head to the upscale shopping area at Omotesando Hills, a mall featuring many of Tokyo’s high-end fashion stores like Prada and Louis Vuitton, among others. Take a look at Kiddy Land, a well-known toy store that has called the Omotesando area home for several decades, then continue walking to Jingu Crossing, home base for discount fashion brands like H&M and Forever 21.

Finish your tour back at Harajuku Station from which you can opt to return back to Shinjuku or stay in the area.

Pop Culture History Tour

Wonderful insight into the present and history of a pop culture shopping center where Western and Japanese influences collide to form a place that only could be Made in Japan. As in most things Japanese, your appreciation of what you see is better with a local helping to decode it. Great tour.

Unfortunately I chose a weekday 10am tour so even though I enjoyed no crowds there were no Cosplayers nor parading fashions. I had the guide Halle to myself and she tailored the tour to my interests to make up for this. She gave me great advice on areas to shop and eat which I was grateful for as I was travelling on my own.

Loved it. I went with my 10 year old and daughter we were the only one so our guide taylored to whatever we wanted to see. Great fun but when I went back later I was surprised how much we learnt and how much ground we covered.

I am giving this tour a high recommendation more for the quality of the guide than for the tour itself--we had a sharp, young male guide who was very well informed. However, much of this tour is just walking past the stores in the Harajuku area, so there wasn't much for him to inform us about. The part of the tour we enjoyed more than Harajuku was the Otosando area, with its swanky stores and great people watching.

Takako was our guide, and she was quite polite and knowledgeable. She met us promptly at the designated meeting point (Shinjuku Keio Plaza Hotel lobby). We then took the train to Harajuku to what around the area. We started at Takeshita Street and wondered through a variety of stores and streets, with Takako asking us for inputs as to what we wanted to see. Unfortunately, my 10-year old son wasn't in the mood for this type of tour. Had my wife been there, she probably would have enjoyed it more. It was earlier in the day, so not many cosplay kids around. If you wanted to shop, it would have been more enjoyable. Overall, the sightseeing was good. The stores we visited, from 100 yen stores to high-end, name brand stores, and large malls, were worth checking out. I'd recommend not going with a young kid unless it's later in the day when more cosplay kids are out and about.

Thought it would be more than it was. I know how to shop and I know how to walk, so I am not sure what the tour was about. I know it was frustrating walking for 5 minutes then stopping for 10 minutes at each shop. No culture or interesting landmarks/people. We left after 30 minutes. AWFUL

Our guide was wonderful but the tour was not good value as it is easy to get around on your own in Harajuku.
