▲ Cat Street @ Harajuku

Harajuku has become a symbol of Tokyo's fashion
Gathering a variety of fashion brands
Many people who are sensitive of fashion and trend would come here to pursue their own fashion style.

What is Cat Street?
You know what once it was a river called the Shibuya river flowing through this place.
it was land-filled since the 1964 Olympic Game.
Now it is transformed into such a clean fashion street.

Why is it called Cat Street?
There are a lot of stories about it!
Like it is said that the geography looked like a cat's forehead
Some said there were a lot of street cats
Others said that because there was once a band called "black cat" performed actively.
Anyways, this it is a quite appropriate name for this atmosphere!


Cat Street is located between Harajuku and Shibuya.
