It's quieter and not as crowded or chaotic as other streets, which I liked. The street has a hipster feel and is lined with funky shops and cafes. Had a lazy afternoon just window shopping, having a leisure stroll and enjoying the cool weather.

We went in winter so the harajuka girls and boys were more subdued in dress. But it's nice traffic free street of funky shops, great cafes, and interesting people and goods - well worth a stroll. Easy acces by rail and near other more commercial shopping strips

We found this place whilst walking around Shibuya and loved it! Lots of interesting shops and the architecture is so different to what we expected to see in the middle of a city. It has a mix of french, colonial and modern buildings with of course a healthy dose of Japan. We went here both during the day and at... More

For all who are not really enjoying the Shibuya main shopping district with the hectic scramble. This street is much more beautiful and has more exquiste shops.

I walked on Cat Street for the first time and would only do it again if I wanted to walk between Omotesando and Shibuya. I didn't find the shops interesting and the street was pretty bleak. I had friends who were first time visitors to Tokyo with me and felt like I wasted our time since we could have been... More

The low rise buildings, the streets that are barely passed by vehicles. The quirky shops and vibe of this place is definitely something to see and experience, we got here at night. I can spend an afternoon to evening here just watching people and immersing in the culture. A definite must see.

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighbourhood Profile
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. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
