Points of Interest

When exiting Shibuya station, head toward the Hachiko exit, named for a statue of a dog named Hachiko. The story behind this statue is that back in the 1920s, this loyal dog greeted his master, Professor Hidesaburo Ueno, every day at Shibuya station at the end of the day.

2. The Lock Up

4. Club Asia

One of the most popular nightclubs in Shibuya, Club Asia has a top-notch sound sytem. Big names and big events with an East Asian-style interior and elevated DJ booth are what you can expect to find here. The crowd is mostly Japanese and the music ranges from dub step to techno to house to hip-hop.

In this area, you can find a whole slew of cheesy theme hotels that charge by the hour, called ... More
