Aoyama and Shibuya
Center of Youth Fashion
Walking distance from Shibuya station, you might not see the name Aoyama often, but it is very well known as a luxury shopping area. Also surrounded by beautiful parks, museums and great restaurants, Shibuya is another large shopping district that is the birthplace of many of Japan's youth fashion trends. It is home to some trend-setting clothing stores such as Shibuya 109, as well as dozens of small fashion stores along its streets. Small boutiques, including high fashion and designer brands, stretch through to Aoyama and Daikanyama, where the atmosphere is more subdued compared to the electric brightness of Shibuya.
