The architecture of this JR station is very nice, however as its so old and there are too many people walking on both sides of the station, it makes it very difficult to walk quickly because the space is really too tight. I would advise...More

Tastefully done architecturally this station stop along the Yamanote line opens up to a very busy, beautifully strolling fashion street, with name-brand stores chock full along the way. Worth a visit. This is a young person's town.

Exterior or station looks great with strong historical smell but internally were terrible. Work a visit which just next to Harajuku shopping areas.

This is an old but very busy station. Crowded with people most of the time. Lots of sights nearby like Meiji shrine, Yoyogi park, Takeshita street, Omotesando etc. We stopped here quite a number of times. Part of it has an old country design.

This station has an interesting country manor design, though not for any historical reason. Only at 1 end though, not the takeshita exit

Old fashioned train station used to go from Shibuya to Harajuku. Very busy - lots of people in and around the station.

Busy train station but has got the looks. Provides quick access to Meiji shrine and to the Harajuku shopping district.

Take the train to this station for Harajuku shopping and Meiji shrine. There seems to be a lot of activity around the station all the time, too.

We really liked the design of the Harajuku Station. It was one of the JR Yamanote stations that we went through the most (second only to Shinjuku). This is a very convenient stop if you are visiting Meiji Shrine, Takeshita Dori or Yoyogi Park.

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.
