Where To Go: Near Harajuku Station
The first thing that comes to mind when Harajuku is mentioned is
cos play but there are many other reasons why Harajuku Station is one of our favorite trains stops in Tokyo. We recommend starting or ending your day by visiting either or both Meiji-Jingu Temple and Yoyogi Park for a relaxing time walking around or cycling. From there you can cross to the direction of Omotesando Hills and just randomly go in shops that looks interesting.
We recommend you stop by the Wonder Photo Shop of Fuji Film for Instax users, Niko And... for buying omiyage, Asoko de Ultraman for fans of this Japanese superhero, Cafe See More Glass for a more intimate and artsy coffee break and finally Cafe Kaila for a taste of Western specifically Hawaiian food for lunch or dinner break.
