Hello Japan - Japan Travel Guide


Travel Guide - Omotesando


Omotesando is a major avenue that was originally constructed as the approach to Meiji-jingu Shrine. It runs for almost one kilometer between JR Harajuku Station and Omotesando Station on the Tokyo Metro lines.
Today the boulevard lined up with trees offers flagship shops of major fashion brands and up and coming select shops displaying the latest fashion trends. Other popular destinations include Kiddy Land, the Oriental Bazaar and the Omotesando Hills complex, which includes a shopping mall and residences. A great way to enjoy the avenue is to stroll its maze of narrow back streets, home to one-of-a-kind shops, beauty salons and upscale cafés that lure throngs of fashion-conscious people. The Omotesando and Harajuku districts have become trend-setting spots for the latest fashions and a hub for people who follow the latest changes in fashion very closely.
In late-August, Harajuku Omotesando Genki Festival (Super Yosakoi) is held here. About 90 teams gather from around the country to perform powerful dances. The "Jiman-ichi" market, where famous local products of various locations throughout Japan can be found, is also held here.

    Visiting Meiji Shrine (Harajuku/Omotesando area) in Tokyo is very holy experience. You can feel you are entering a different world.

    In Omotesando, one of the main shopping areas of Tokyo, and it’s incredibly quiet. Presumably it’s just a matter of attrition with retail.
