The famous Takeshita Street is a sight to behold, as well as the more mellow backstreets stemming from it. There is something for all tastes here; eateries and stores range from cute, novelty and cheap to very upscale. If you like street food, you’ll be spoiled for choice as rainbow cotton candy and crepes abound. Art lovers will also dig the various galleries around, too.
