The Meiji Shrine, one of Tokyo's major shrines, is just west of the railway tracks from Harajuku station. Next to the shrine is the lovely Yoyogi Park, a spacious public park to relax and enjoy nature. There's also the Ota Memorial Museum of Art that displays stunning ukiyo-e paintings and other works of art.
There are also a plethora of shops, cafes and restaurants for all ages are found along Omotesando, a broad, tree lined avenue, sometimes referred to as Tokyo's Champs-Elysees right next to Harajuku. Omotesando Hills, a recently opened shopping complex along the avenue, has been attracting particularly lots of attention. While Omotesando is filled with higher-end brands, there's also the popular Takeshita Street which showcases the colorful and wild fashions of Harajuku.
