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.

This is one of the stations on the JR Yamanote line that services the Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi park. It is a small station with long platforms and has easy walking access directly to the shrine and park. It is not as crowded as other...More

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.

It is a train station but has maintained its old world charm. One can take pics. From here, we can go to Meiji Jingu shrine and the Takeshita Dori (market).

A nice little station on the Yamanote Line circling inner Tokyo. It's exit leads to Meiji Shrine and a magnificent shopping street. Pleasant

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.
