Omotesando is a fashion area. I prefer Omotesando to Harajuku. Harajuku is more popular among young girls. You can find many shops, luxury brands as well, and cafes. It's somewhat like Champs-Élysées in Paris. At night, illuminated trees along the street are so gorgeous. If you want to go shopping in Tokyo, I recommend Omotesando!
I love Omotesando!
You can find all international fashion brands as well as some very fashionable & good looking people! Great for a shopping spree~
Omotesando is also a grate place to eat and hang out with friends, they have nice restaurants and cafes as well as limited pop up shops with interesting items and foods! Its only 15 minutes walking from Shibuya, a pleasant walk if I may add! If you are going to Shibuya or Harajuku, definitively check Omotesando out!
I love to stroll around the area. It's near Harajuku, but more sophisticated and chic. There are many stylish shops and nice cafes. And if you go down to the end of the street, you can get to Nezu museum which has a lovely Japanese garden. You can enjoy both of shopping and Japanese ancient art in the area!
Omotesando is expensive. Lets start with that.
Nestled next (within walking distance) to Harajuku is its big sister Omotesando, who caters for a slightly older crowd, who generally has more money than they know what to do with. While not all of Omotesando is expensive, it caters for those with money.
There are many high end brand-name stores in Omotesando, where all the stars (apparently) pick up the latest look.
Even if this is not quite your scene (Like me) Omotesando has plenty of quality coffee shops hidden in its alleyways. Prices may be slightly higher than other places, but it makes up for this fact with quality. I personally recommend "Omotesando Koffee"
Oh yeah. Once again, bring money!
