What pleasure is squeezing along a 400m long pedestrian shopping jungle. The neon signs aren’t even that great. Avoid it unless you love nothing but shopping in over priced tourist honey pots.

Very lively, extremely packed, great candy shops and clothing shops. Lots of bargains to be had, it seemed like everything was on sale. Worth a visit, even if just to get the 45CM cotton candy.

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
