Harajuku is a famous center of trends in
fashion and youth culture.
Takeshita Takeshita is an intense center of youth culture.
Omotesandō Omotesandō resembles the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
Cat Street Cat Street is a trendy side street connecting Harajuku to Shibuya.
Visit by way of Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line. That's one train stop (or a short walk) north from Shibuya Station, and two stops south from Shinjuku.
