This is not only the largest store in Harajuku but also one of the most fashionable, appealing mostly to teenage and 20-something shoppers. Young and upcoming Japanese designers are here as well as established names, in boutiques spread on several floors. In addition to men’s and women’s fashions there are also shops selling jewelry, shoes, handbags, and other accessories. There’s so much to see—from pink frilly dresses to Goth—you can easily kill a few hours here. Note, however, that not all shops offer tax-free shopping, and since each shop is its own entity, you can’t combine purchases to qualify for the tax refund.
