Moyai Statue, Shibuya

(180+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • Ehhh. Dont go out of your way to see this. It's really not worth it. We just walked by as it's right outside the train station. You can see enough as you pass by. Don't make an special trip to see it.  more »
