Moyai Statue, Shibuya

2.2
#477 of 3,862 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.

  • At JR Shibuya Station's Midori no madoguchi, just about. Meeting place around may, like smoking, hard to use in the meeting. Hachiko is easy to understand and easy to use.

  • [Evaluation high point], perfect for meeting place. Bigger than the statue of Hachiko. And people not much compared with the statue of Hachiko. So can I use as a meeting place for so quickly found someone. And as the access method if Jr South Gate is the closest. [Review low points:-none. [Other]-easily accessed by the gate down, less noticeable than the statue of Hachiko and track, so go to Shibuya become feels is unacceptable and does not meet.

  • In such a place and seems somewhat lonely. Imagine more sober did not even look at anyone as surprised. I wonder why something like this in here.

  • Curios if these statues were the inspiration for the faces of the robots from super sentai/ power rangers. Very similar design elements, especially when looking at the older 1990’s shows.
  • Looks like Masako! Plus smoking area!
  • Worth checking out of if you are in the area. South of the dog statue.
  • Nice stone head!
  • The smell is very close to reach the meeting place, but smoking hard. Bad manners from the flood of many people who are smoking outside moyai and smoking up in the image, there are unpleasant.

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.
