Shibuya/Harajuku/Omotesando

Shibuya

Shibuya is the origin of Japanese youth culture. You will find many famous shops, restaurants, bars, night clubs and live music clubs. It is full of the latest fashion of young people. Shibuya is definitely the place to go if you want to get the Japanese kawaii (cute) trends published in magazines. Recently many tourists come from all over the world.
Situated in front of Shibuya Station are some of the district's landmarks such as the statue of "Hachiko", "Moai" and the world's famous "Scramble Crossing".


Harajuku

Harajuku has 2 faces.
One is the face of a city of the teenagers’ culture where stylish items such as assorted goods, accessories and clothes are readily available. Takeshita street is constantly crowded with shoppers. Harajuku is the place where crepes, pancakes, and many other trends started. People line up outside popular shops here and there.

The other face is the stillness and mystical energy emanating from the Meiji Shrine. There are about 100 thousand trees within an area of about 700,000 square kilometers. After walking for 10 minutes from the entrance, you can see the Main Shrine where the souls of Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken are enshrined.

Next to Meiji Shrine, there is Yoyogi Park, which is famous for its cherry blossoms in the spring and ginkgo trees in the autumn. It has become an oasis for people. Various international events are held during weekends.
