Shopping at Takeshita Street is indeed a treat. Lying at the very heart of Harajuku, this pedestrians-only street must be savoured at leisure little by little and there are many serviced apartments in Tokyo in which one can seek accommodation in during this excursion. Somerset Azabu East Tokyo provides comfortable Tokyo service apartments in the middle of the city allowing the guests comfort and convenience all in one place. Apart from major designer labels and fashion boutiques, the Takeshita Street is also teeming with independent shops that carry their own styles. Interesting baubles can be found here such as curious pieces of jewellery, punk accessories making this a favourite place of hangout for teenagers on the lookout for fancy paraphernalia.
