Enjoy a half-day Muslim-Friendly tour in “Harajuku”, a spot popular not only in Japan, but also to young people from all over the world. A tour guide who is very familiar with the Harajuku area will be showing you around the best “kawaii” (cute) spots that most tourists don’t know about. Baggage storage and free Wifi will be provided on this tour.
To begin the tour, we will be meeting at the “HIS Tourist Information Center” located in front of JR Harajuku Station. The first location will be the youth’s holy land “Takeshita-dori”. Once we enter this street we will visit “Daiso Harajuku”, which is a 100-yen shop that has stores all around the world. However, Harajuku’s store is a wonderful spot for purchasing souvenirs for friends and such. The store is uniquely filled with many small and cute items which are only available in Japan. After our visit at “Daiso Harajuku”, your guide will walk you around Takeshita Street while introducing various highly recommended shops including “Totti Candy Factory”, which is a large colourful shop that sells cotton candy. We can stop by any shop that may interest you at all! Once we pass through Takeshita-dori, we will have a short break at a special café called “Reissue”. This Latte Art café is the only one in the world that offers 3D latte art. They can create popular game characters such as Pikachu, popular anime characters and more. You are able to ask for any character which you like, if you are interested in creating your own Latte Art which your favourite character, by all means do so! After our break, we will roam the back streets of Harajuku, where all the more fashionable shops are located. We will explore some wonderful photo shooting spots including a No.1 popular wall art spot called “NOW IS FOREVER” and browse through some super cute and Instagram worthy shops such as “Princess one Spoon”. Your guide will show you all the best spots to take pictures for you to post on Instagram and Facebook, so you can enjoy feeling like a super model. After taking lots of pictures together, we will visit the world’s largest Onitsuka Tiger’s specialty store, “Onitsuka Tiger OMOTESANDO”. Here, you can purchase special Japanese-made shoes which are unavailable anywhere else. They also offer customised order services, so you may create your own original pair of shoes which would not be available anywhere else in the world. This shop is a great spot for Onitsuka Tigers and sneaker enthusiasts. If you are not interested in Onitsuka Tiger or sneakers, we will take you to other enjoyable locations. Please do not hesitate to consult with your tour guide. Next is time to play with super cute owls at the Owl Café, “Owl’s Garden”, which is a No.1 popular spot within the Harajuku Area. Inside this store, there are not only fluffy owls, but also a hawk! We insist that you try to get pictures of it by all means. We hope you have a nice day in Harajuku with your friends and family!
