Harajuku And Omote Sando, Tokyo: 62 reviews and 111 photos
the busy Japan Railway Harajuku Station, Tokyo's Harajuku Station, just one station north of Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. The Harajuku Station is in the center of Japan's most extreme teenage cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for grown-ups and some historic sights. The station consists of a single island platform. A temporary platform is located on the west side of the station usable by trains travelling towards Shinjuku which is used when major events occur in the area, especially around New Year when many people visit Meiji Shrine. The main entrance is at the southern end of the station. A smaller entrance in the centre of the platform is convenient for Takeshita-dori, another famous area in Harajuku. Takeshita-dori is a popular shopping street and Takeshita-dori entrance is often very crowded, creating a bottleneck on weekends when scores of tourists and locals arrive and leave Harajuku generally and the shopping areas in and around Takeshita-dori specifically.
Address: Jingu Mae, Shibuya-ku
Directions: Tokyo Metro OMOTE-SANDO / JINGU-MAE. Harajuku is a station on the JR Yamanote Line, two stations south of Shinjuku and one station north of Shibuya (130 yen from either station).
