The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great area in Shibuya. Famous statue of Hachiko. Lots of stores and shopping. This is an area in the Shibuya scramble crossing.

We came to this area and specifically Dozenzaka centre for Sushizanmai. The area is just next to Shibuya centre so it’s bustling

Nothing much to say, the streets are busy and crowded with people since that's a shopping district. Added on to the fact that I visited Shibuya during lunch hour, so lunch crowds are also seen everywhere.

This place isn’t the Shibuya Center-gai but it’s very close to it. I’d say it’s a smaller version of the gai but it is still worth doing. The stores are a bit smaller and you have some stores and restaurants that aren’t chain stores such as in the gai but it’s still something to check out nonetheless.

Great area in the heart of Shibuya, filled with small stores and restaurants right next to neon lights and Shibuya crossing

Yoshinoya, Modiva, Mos burger, as well as unique Mom and Pop dives are all crowded together in this strip of Shibuya. There's even a Krispy Kreme. We frequented this area a lot for quick lunch or breakfast on the way to Shibuya station. Very cheap eats wherever we went, with friendly staff and quick service.

This area became popular as an offshoot from the popular Shibuya Crossing, and Hachiko statute. There is a main street that branches out from the crossing and it has lots of tall buildings and shopping. It is called Dogenzaga, but really the attraction in and around Shibuya Station is the crossing and Hachiko.

Japanese life style, a taste of Japan night life and Love Hotel culture. Day time looks like nothing special some food and lots of people but by night this area transforms and becomes lit up with colorful love hotel signs and lots of people and food.

Dogenzaka is situated at the heart of Shibuya. The area is a popular place for the locals, for all ages. And what's more? Restaurants. Over 200 restaurants can be found on Dogenzaka. Japanese, Old Tokyo, Spanish, French, Chinese... you name it. Nice alley with lot of choices to choose. Must go and check it out!

There are no especially nice stores on this street, but off-street a lot of quirky places. Long missing is the Yamaha Music Store. There is a good cinema. I wouldn't put this area on my to visit list when in Tokyo unless you are headed for much better shopping in Shibuya around Bunkamura.
