Moyai Statue, Shibuya

2.0
#506 of 2,149 in Things to do in Tokyo
A popular quiet meeting place and a landmark near a busy Shibuya Station, Moyai Statue is a giant two-faced stone head springing up from a sprawling mini-garden. A donation from Niijima, a volcanic Japanese island in the Philippine Sea, this sculpture sits in sharp contrast to its surroundings. Erected in 1980 to mark the 100th anniversary of Tokyo as the capital of Japan, this tiny attraction makes a nice short stopover.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
