Do you remember that I said Harajuku represents ‘kawaii’ things on my previous article? Haruajuku is a place where you can buy unique and usually extremely cute fashion items as well as enjoy sweets decorated with candy powders. Every single stuff you face in Harajuku will make you feel ‘cute’ and this theme of being kawaii applies to attraction as well.
However, I understand that some people are totally not interested in this kind of kawaii things. Don’t worry. There are other things as well you can enjoy in Harajuku. You can enjoy these activities even in quiet and monotonous atmosphere. In this article, I am going to introduce attractions you can enjoy in Harajuku by two separated sections, which are kawaii and non-kawaii things.

In this amazing district in Tokyo, you can enjoy wide range of food from small snacks to gorgeous meal. We have separated Harajuku to three big categories in previous article, which are Cat street, Takeshita street, and Omotesando. Since each of the street has strong characteristic, especially regarding budget, the information about eatery will be also divided into three categories in this article.
If I have to compare Takeshita street, Cat street, and Omotesando, I would like to say you can enjoy cheap eats in Takeshita street. If you love sweets such as parfait and crepes, here is the perfect place for you. You will find a lot of sweets shops lining up on this road and massive people lining up for having it as well. If you go there in summer you are going to have hard time lining up under super hot weather, but it deserves to do.
