Counting trend-setting Harajuku and natural attraction Yoyogi Park within its bounds, Shibuya District combines cutting-edge fashion and old-fashioned fun. Skate shops and street wear boutiques climb up the steep alleys behind Dogenzaka Street and keep Shibuya District at the forefront of new fads. Visitors can still find solace in the district despite its fast pace and constant crowds—they just need to journey to nearby Meiji Shrine, a verdant escape from the neighborhood’s frenzy.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
