There is more to Harajuku than just teenage culture and shopping. Harajuku is the center of Japan's most extreme cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for adults and some historic sites. 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. If you've ever seen someone in crazy colors and unique clothes, chances are they found it at a store along Takeshita Dori. The street is also famous for crepes, cakes, and candies that look and taste amazing.
