Moyai Statue, Shibuya

#484 of 3,864 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.

  • 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.
