Kawaii culture and teenage fashion are on technicolor display in Harajuku, an energetic area well known for its trendsetting ways. Along the famous Takeshita Street, you’ll find a buzzing lineup of boutiques and food stalls, serving up sweet treats that range from rainbow cotton candy and cheesecake crepes to cake pops in the shape of kittens and ice cream cones that look like panda bears. If you have a good eye, visit the vintage boutiques and start sifting through the selection — it can be an incredible way to find the kind of pieces that make a wardrobe. Prepare for crowds any time you visit the pop culture hot spot of Harajuku, but know that weekends are busiest.
