This area has every brand name shop you can think of and some you can't. Great mix of shops and restaurants. Great for people watching strolling.

Beautiful quiet pedestrian street, perfect for walking with the family and do some shopping in fancy stores away from the noise and craziness. Loved the hand made candy store!

I agree with a fellow member. This place may be high end shops but no one will force you to buy anything. A very relaxed and intriguing place where the only thing that separates a high end shop and regular neighborhood is simply the road...More

We were fortunate to walk down this street every day as our air bnb was in a quieter street that ran off it. We liked the vibe and look of the street. The shops are pricey but you don't have to shop to enjoy a...More

I visited here with my older teens looking for inexpensive second hand stores. We were very disappointed. The second hand shops either carried only expensive brands or were grunge and smelly. We did find a restaurant that served the most Delicious fluffy pancakes.

It's a lovely area and the shopping is great but the name kind of threw us off. There's not many cat related stuff around which is what we were looking for.

The street is narrow and very calm compared to the large avenues of Tokyo. However there are many shops that you can find in many Western countries, so unless you like shopping, it's not so interesting...

Great little shopping street with many boutiques. It is a much more interesting shopping experience that Shibuya 109 but the boutiques are more expensive. Recommend going there.

I simply loved the sphere and vibe of cat street. It feels very retro / vintage with all the nice and cosy stores. If you want something different from the big shops than this street is the perfect opportunity. Also nice to walk around and...More

Fun little area to visit with some one of a kind quirky shops. If you're in the area it's worth a pop by.

There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.

It's a great location, shops are open til 10pm ish as in most Tokyo stores. But Omotesando Dori is a couple of minutes stroll at end of Cat St, and is very very vibrant place. As are all the street on either side of this... More
