I've been to Harajuku many times but this tour took me to a few shops l'd never been to down side streets l would never have visited myself in fear of getting lost! My guide explained some history of the area and some of the shops we visited. We also visited a local art gallery that is apparently changes exhibits a lot so the next time l was in the area l went again and everything was different! Very good tour if you want to visit the area thoroughly like a local and visit some interesting places. Would have been good to go to one of the second hand clothing shops like the 4 Chicago stores in the area because they have a huge selection of cheap 'Harajuku style' clothes and traditional clothing like kimono and yukata.
Unfortunately I chose a weekday 10am tour so even though I enjoyed no crowds there were no Cosplayers nor parading fashions.
I had the guide Halle to myself and she tailored the tour to my interests to make up for this. She gave me great advice on areas to shop and eat which I was grateful for as I was travelling on my own.
Loved it. I went with my 10 year old and daughter we were the only one so our guide taylored to whatever we wanted to see. Great fun but when I went back later I was surprised how much we learnt and how much ground we covered.
I am giving this tour a high recommendation more for the quality of the guide than for the tour itself--we had a sharp, young male guide who was very well informed. However, much of this tour is just walking past the stores in the Harajuku area, so there wasn't much for him to inform us about. The part of the tour we enjoyed more than Harajuku was the Otosando area, with its swanky stores and great people watching.
