The architecture of this JR station is very nice, however as its so old and there are too many people walking on both sides of the station, it makes it very difficult to walk quickly because the space is really too tight. I would advise...More
Tastefully done architecturally this station stop along the Yamanote line opens up to a very busy, beautifully strolling fashion street, with name-brand stores chock full along the way. Worth a visit. This is a young person's town.
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 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
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.
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.
