Neighborhood: 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.

After reaching the top there is a shrine at Mt Mitake. Many steps to reach the top..Wear proper shoes.
You can go pray and buy charms at the top.
Nice views of the town from above.

Heard this was one of the few places in Japan w/statues of wolves, so I figured why not check it out. It's very small and nestled between some tall buildings, not far from Shibuya Station. I went and followed the instructions of how to pray. Loved the wolf statues ;)

Defiently worth it, at first sight not much to recongnize as usual but give it a little try. A real jewel underneath.

This is a nice shrine located in the city surrounded by tall residences. There is no sitting place so yo cannot take a rest but just see it and turn back if you are not a believer in this religion.
You will be climbing many stairs before you reacj there and it is not much different than other shrines you can find in Tokyo.
It is very close to Shibuya station.
