You wouldn't know that you were in the middle of a big city once you're walking in the trees and gardens. The area is very beautifully kept, and the Japanese clearly treasure/value these shrines, as many of them bow at the gate before leaving. This...More

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.
