Omotesando is full of cafes and international brand clothing boutiques along with the up market Omotesando Hills shopping complex. There aren't as many stores of the very top international brands as there are in Ginza, but it is still impressive. Omotesando is in stark contrast to Takeshita-dori, only a short walk away, which features boutiques selling less well know brands that are much closer to the cutting edge of fashion. There are some more pictures of Omotesando in our picture gallery.

We have a very detailed guide to the location of the stores, building and cafes along Omotosando in our Harajuku Map.
