Moyai Statue, Shibuya
(1/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
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. Before you head to Tokyo, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Tokyo trip itinerary builder, to make sure you see all that Tokyo has to offer, including Moyai Statue.

  • It's located right next to a smoke pit. It's hard to admire the statue over the stench. Still a good photo op, but nothing too special 
  • Also not cute, and I think that image only from the neck and do not match the around. What touched me with discomfort in my sculptures.

  • Since ancient times used to wait at Shibuya moyai statue is around in the redevelopment project ready to tinker with that, so I felt somewhat faded presence. I am worried about what would happen after the redevelopment.
