Cat Street and all the Harajuku backstreets in general are FULL of kawaii shops, just like this one! They sell vintage clothes that have been ‘kawaiified’ and also new kawaii clothing! Although Takeshita Street is amazing, it can be nice to go to Cat Street due to it being a more relaxed area with less people. One of my favorite shops is the one in the picture above. The shop itself is super instagram-worthy and also sells the CUTEST clothes! If you’re a kawaii fashion lover, Cat Street is the place to go!
