Takeshita Street, Karajuku district, Tokyo, Japan photo
Takeshita Street, Karajuku district, Tokyo

Takeshita Street (Japanese: Takeshita-dori) is a pedestrian-only street lined with fashion boutiques, cafes and restaurants in the Harajuku special ward of Tokyo.

Although some major chains have stores on Takeshita Street, most are small independent shops that carry an array of styles.

Located directly across from the exit of JR Harajuku Station, Takeshita Street is very popular with young teenagers, and for this reason its shops are often a bellwether for broader fashion trends, and some are known as "antenna shops," which manufacturers seed with prototypes for test-marketing.
