    Tokyo Shibuya-ku Dougenzaka 2-24-1
    The flagship store of the chain of department stores operated by the Tokyu Group. The store is located at the 2 Chome Dogenzaka intersection. A free shuttle bus operates between the Shibuya Main Store and the Tokyu Department Store Toyoko Store located next to Shibuya Station. The store's customers are primarily local residents living in the surrounding exclusive residential areas. Because of this, the store is characterized by a more subdued atmosphere compared with the hustle and bustle near Shibuya Station. Bunkamura, a museum and commercial facility, was built next door in 1989. Since that time, the Shibuya Main Store has functioned together with Bunkamura as a large-scale commercial complex and shopping facility.

    A Shop-a-holics delight. If it is not in this store, it either doesnt exist or you dont need it. Food, apparel, home goods, office goods, electronics .... you name it and it is here. We only...

    This is an eccentric teppanyaki-style restaurant located in the Harajuku area. Visitors can enjoy dishes such as okonomiyaki, monjayaki, and teppanyaki that are all made with dashi seasoning free of any chemical seasonings. They also offer an all-you-can-eat menu and course menu for dinner parties, and the inexpensive all-you-can-eat option that is limited to weekday lunch times is particularly popular. Eat inside and enjoy the artistic and colorful wall art, or take advantage of the spacious outdoor terrace seating.

Tokyo Areas

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
