We were halfway through our Japan adventure when we hit a wall. My friend and I were in the heart of Harajuku and suddenly needed to just go somewhere that we could sit and relax for a while; the first place we found that looked...More

Dived in as we were desperate for a beer. Lovely place. Really aimed at much younger people than us. Full of comic book, bobble head etc memorabilia. Music playing was all sing along 80's. Had nachos and fries to accompany beers. Very pleasant beer stop.

Great place! Staff very welcoming and great at speaking English. Me and my wife both got a decent steak with rice, fries and soup. Only came to about 1000 odd yen which seems pretty good since half a pint can sometimes be 900 odd! Decor...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
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.
