With plenty of cafes, fashion stores, and other shops along its length, this street is forever at the cutting edge of fashion and spreading Japanese "kawaii" (cute) culture globally. Now it is crowded and bustling with visitors not only from across Japan but across the world, creating a space with a charm all its own. However, it also has history: in 1945, the area was burnt to the ground during the Tokyo air raids that destroyed Meiji Shrine. In more recent times, there is the Takeshita-dori Art Festival, which exhibits pictures and films that capture the allure of Harajuku. Winning entries are broadcast on the Panorama Vision screen at the street’s entrance, playing an important part in creating an exciting atmosphere.
