Harajuku:
       
 
Located one block north of Omotesando avenue, Harajuku refers mostly to Takeshita Dori (Takeshita Street) and its side streets, which are lined by many trendy shops, used clothes stores, and fast food outlets. The area can be accessed through Tokyo's Harajuku Station, one station north of Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. This is where Japan's teenage cultures and fashion styles are born. While Harajuku is a favourite shopping area for the youth, it also appeals to some degree to the elder crowd looking for trendy affordable clothes.

On Sunday afternoons, many young people gather around Harajuku Station and engage in cosplay ("costume play"), with the costumes varying from 19th century maids to the latest anime characters.
