Very famous street in Shibuya. Here is cultural-centre for teens and always crowded. From my impression, there were nothing to see, because shops and restaurants were quite boring. All the places were pretty similar, noodle shops, shoes shops, sushi-restaurants. As these are for teens, obviously...More

Shibuya Center-gai is loaded with casual restaurants, bars, cafes, karaoke, etc. It becomes the epicenter during Halloween. You see many people in the costumes. Other days, it's just a busy street with many people, especially Japanese high school girls.

Where the young hang out in the evenings. Where you will go for the Shibuya Scramble. You may also see mario cart cosplay tours on the streets. Places to eat, drink and be merry. It was just as good to see at night and day....More

My hotel was near by - so I became quite familiar with central Shibuya. The atmosphere is lively, shops and restaurants are everywhere + karaoke. Heaps of things to look at, small streets to wander down.

Japanese Experience at its best, good food and lots to see. Many interesting stores, weird vending machines and people people galore.

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.
