Moyai Statue, Shibuya

2.0
#168 of 859 in Sightseeing in Tokyo
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • Do Shibuya Hachiko Moya is top coat. If you look at the statue of Hachiko in Shibuya, roam near the station's famous statue of the opposite side., gathered in front of such people.

  • There are people who say the MOAI and the moyai statue is the official name. May think of Shibuya Hachiko because not much awareness to people outside of Tokyo may be prima facie is a meeting place. Spring, are crowded with college freshman. However, since smoking spot in quite smoky. As a meeting place for me is not recommended.

  • For those who see it for the first time compared to the smaller "Hachiko" too much was a huge facial image. But meeting environment significantly, bad, unsuitable as a place where the so sonoyatoishu. As a smoking area was through good positioning as the image from. Where you removed the smoking area more accessible, it was disappointing.

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.
