Shibuya is one of Tokyo's most popular districts. Mainly famous for its crossing, this area is packed with commuters, tourist, and traveller alike. Visit Shibuya district easily by taking JR Yamanote line.


Here's things to do in Shibuya




Visit the Shibuya Crossing
For me there's nothing screams Shibuya other than the scramble crossing. When red light is shown, pedestrian will cross the street from different sides. Other than that, the billboard also gives a sense of liveliness.




Hachiko Statue
Hachiko is a famous Akita dog known for waiting for its master for nine years. As a commemoration, the statue is built in the middle of Shibuya.


Eating place

Starbucks Shibuya
Take a look at the Shibuya crossing from above at the 2nd level of Starbucks. I had the usual cappuccino while people watching.
21-6 Udagawa-cho, Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan; 81-(0)3-3770-2301



Gyukatsu Motomura
Probably one of the best gyukatsu i have ever tried. Thick,juicy, and melt in your mouth pieces. The inside was tender while the outer was crispy. Cook it the way you like it, but for me medium-rare it is. The place itself is small and can only occupy about 15 people. I queued for an hour for lunch but when i finished the queue has doubled up. It is best to come earlier. The portion itself starts from 125 gr.

Ichiran Ramen Shibuya

One of the most famous ramen chain available in various cities (and even overseas) Ichiran ramen is always filled with long queue. The order system is through a ticketing machine and you hand the ticket once you get a seat inside the restaurant. Totally love their tonkotsu broth and you can also customise the ramen to your liking.
1 Chome-22-7 Jinnan


Nanashi Ramen
Easily spotted from the main street, Nanashi Ramen has Lekei style ramen, a tonkotsu shoyu base. One interesting thing is that Nanashi's preparation process removes the strong odour of tonkotsu, making it a more comfortable dining experience.
2-9-10 Dogenzaka, Shibuya



Otokoasahiyama Ramen
Dogenzaka, 2 Chome−8-8 MJ道玄坂ビル1F
The less mainstream ramen shop among tourist. You can order the food through a ticket machine and have it prepared for you. Love their shoyu ramen, simple and no fuss.




Aoyama Flower Market Teahouse
A serene tea house with lots of flowers, Aoyama Flower Market is considered as an instagrammable place in the district. The interior is decorated with seasonal fresh flowers. There are several types of main dishes as well as dessert to accompany your tea time.
5-1-2 Minamiaoyama, Shibuya 107-0062




Shopping spot in Shibuya

1. Shibuya 109
A large department store available in various cities, Shibuya 109 is one of the landmarks for the area. It is considered the centre of fashion culture in the city made famous by the gyarus. Take your time finding clothes and make up sprawling across 10 floors.
2-29-1 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan; 81-(0)3-3477-5111 




2. It's Demo

If you're looking for Japanese make up, It's Demo is one of my favourite shops. You can find various character make up like Disney, Sailormoon, Pokemon, and many more that mostly are only available in Japan.
24-4 Udagawa-cho


3. Loft Shibuya

This huge building is filled with stationary, home goods, travel goods, and all sort of knick knacks. They have pretty solid art materials collection you should visit! 
21-1 Udagawacho, Shibuya 150-0042

  1. This is another post I see with Ramen and it looks divine. I never had Ramen (even if I live in the capital city in Europe, so I still don't get why) and it drives me crazy! So crazy, that I actually just forced my boyfriend to take me out to eat one tonight. Your pictures are so great here!

    Bonjour Agnes,

    Merci pour votre réponse rapide. Oui si c'est juste sur le Jean Jaurès alors ça ne sera trop fort pour moi la nuit pour dormir. Je suis familier avec l'avenue. Je suis resté dans la région avant. Ma femme vit à la fin de Jean Jaurès où est le chuch, ils vivent en quelque sorte derrière.

    Merci de me le faire savoir. C'est dommage car l'appartement est assez joli.
