If you have seen Tokyo on TV, chances are the images that flickered over the screen were of Shibuya’s famous intersection. Shibuya is synonymous with young people. Thanks to its many malls, shopping streets, bars, restaurants, izakaya, clubs and concert halls, it attracts masses of people every night and weekend that come to enjoy themselves. But once you move away from Shibuya’s overcrowded scramble crossing, one of Tokyo’s most diverse and impressive neighbourhoods unfolds.  ACCESS

FAMOUS LOCATION 1. Center Street (Center-Gai) The Center Gai is a popular pedestrian street that is seen throughout the city, attracting entertainment and photographers. Exploring the area, you can expect to find cheap fast-fashion, niche sub-culture boutiques with small record shops, underground venues and cavernous clubs hidden along the narrow streets. Once the sun goes down, Center-Gai fills with the frenetic energy of late-night partiers and drinking companions who tuck into the surrounding nightlife entertainment. The clubs around Center-Gai that stay open until dawn and regularly book world-renowned DJs and performers 2. Takeshita Street, Harajuku A pedestrian shopping jungle that is quite the sensory overload with food and fashion options popular among Tokyo's trend-setting youth. It is geared towards Tokyo's fashion and trend-conscious set. Lady Gaga is known to shop here—despite its reputation for being kawaii (cute), there are also several boutiques that specialize in edgy grunge and goth fashion.

For an undeniably Japanese experience, check out the "purikura" photo booths where you can snap, customize and decorate pictures with your friends before they are printed on the spot.

3. Yoyogi Park There are two parts you may want to explore, the festival and event space and the park. You will appreciate the numerous activities that are happening around the park. Sometimes, you may end up spending a whole day here because of the things that you will see and do.
