Tokyo’s Shibuya Ward is known as the go-to shopping haven for the city’s fashion-conscious youth. But the area, which is also chock-full of galleries, ateliers and upscale boutiques, appeals to stylish urbanites of all ages. Check out our top picks for clothing stores in Shibuya.

Maison Kitsuné

Store
The Kitsuné fashion house opened their Daikanyama branch earlier this year. Originally from Paris, the brand is also a music label. Branding, advertising and the name kitsune (meaning ‘fox’ in Japanese) all have heavy Japanese influences. Expect distinctly posh, preppy European streetwear with a Tokyo twist. They carry both men’s and women’s fashion.

Shibuya 109

The birthplace of gyaru culture in the early 2000s, Shibuya 109 continues to fuel modern-day trends. Find cornerstones of youth fashion like WeGo, brands aimed at the city’s glamorous ‘hostesses’ like DaTuRa, and monochrome adult fashions like Emoda. Most of the shoppers here are young teens and twenty-somethings, but with so much Tokyo fashion crammed in, there’s bound to be something to catch your eye. Shibuya 109 carries women’s fashion only, but its little brother, 109 Men’s, can be found nearby.

Following in the footsteps of her mentors Rei Kawakubo (of Comme des Garçons) and Junya Watanabe, designer Chitose Abe opened a flagship store to house her Sacai fashion brand in Aoyama. Only the most daring trendsetter could pull of Abe’s pieces, which incorporate a bold variety of textures, fabrics and colors. The inviting two-story boutique carries both men’s and women’s fashions.
