Harajuku has been the capital of Japanese pop culture for a long long time. This is where you'll find small boutiques and colorful fashion shops and colorful restaurants filled with so many colorful young locals. In this experience, you'll get to explore our pop culture by visiting "hot & colorful" spots like idol photo shops, emerging clothing shops, and a unique cafe where you can dive into Japanese pop culture.
This experience is provided by Miku, a college student who knows a lot about Harajuku and has 2-yrs experience of guide for travelers. When you are in Tokyo, why not get some insights of Tokyo's pop-culture with the local guide?

  • Harajuku is a really interesting place. It was fun hanging out with Miku. She showed us many cool and crazy places. For girls there are many great clothes shops. And for guys its just fun people watching, and there some nice crazy shops. The Kawaii Monster Cafe was really a once in a lifetime experience. It was sooo colorful, and it had funny looking food.
