Another symbolic stands at the entrance of “WITH HARAJUKU”, a new commercial facility in front of JR Harajuku Station, which just celebrate 2nd anniversary.

The first city-center shop IKEA in Japan in WITH HARAJUKU is so cool. In addition to cafeteria, IKEA convenience store is also available at the basement floor.
