    the main train line going to Harajuku. Tokyo's Harajuku Station, just one station north of Shibuya on the Yamanote Line. The Harajuku Station is in the center of Japan's most extreme teenage cultures and fashion styles, but also offers shopping for grown-ups and some historic sights. The station consists of a single island platform. A temporary platform is located on the west side of the station usable by trains travelling towards Shinjuku which is used when major events occur in the area, especially around New Year when many people visit Meiji Shrine. The main entrance is at the southern end of the station. A smaller entrance in the centre of the platform is convenient for Takeshita-dori, another famous area in Harajuku. Takeshita-dori is a popular shopping street and Takeshita-dori entrance is often very crowded, creating a bottleneck on weekends when scores of tourists and locals arrive and leave Harajuku generally and the shopping areas in and around Takeshita-dori specifically.

    Address: Jingu Mae, Shibuya-ku
    Directions: Tokyo Metro OMOTE-SANDO / JINGU-MAE. Harajuku is a station on the JR Yamanote Line, two stations south of Shinjuku and one station north of Shibuya (130 yen from either station).

    travelling to harajuku from our hotel in shinagawa via the famed JR Yamamote Line. the JR Yamanote Line is running as a circle and it connects most of Tokyo's major stations and urban centres including the Yûrakuchô area, Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro with all but two of its 29 stations connecting with other railway or underground (subway) lines. the JR Yamanote trains run from about 4:30 am to about 1:20 am at intervals of 2.5 minutes at peak time. A complete loop takes 61 to 65 minutes and all trains stop at each station. the fare from Shinagawa to Harajuku one way is 160 yen!

    Subway Station

    Take the JR Yamanote Line to Harajuku . Stop at the cute train station in the heart of the place. The station is just a stone's throw from Yoyogi Park and the Sushi Restaurant.

    Harajuku sub-way station

    Harajuku sub-way station, Tokyo

    Perhaps the best way to come to Harajuku is to take the Tokyo sub-way system and alight at the Harajuku sub-way station which is conveniently located in-between the traditional Meiji Shrine and the modern Harajuku shopping area. The Harajuku sub-way station has a very interesting design and is shaped like a cottage which you see in theme parks such as Disneyland :)
