Where to Stay in Shibuya

Shibuya is often thought of as being synonymous with the shopping area immediately around the famous crossing by the station, but the ward actually covers almost 15 square kilometers and its different areas each have their own advantages. Center Gai is a key area in the centre of the ward, with a pedestrian zone packed with by stores, boutiques and entertainment facilities. Similarly, Spain Slope - so-called for its resemblance to a Spanish street - is a pedestrianised area with plenty of shops and places to eat. However, for those looking to step out of the hustle and bustle - as much as is possible in Tokyo - Shibuya also has several residential areas such as Daikanyama, Ebisu, Hiroo, and Higashi. However, Yoyogi is one of the more popular areas to stay, as its neighbourhoods of Uehara, Ōyamachō, Nishihara, and Hatsudai offer a slightly quieter atmosphere, whilst still having plenty of amenities.
