Shibuya Center-Gai 渋谷センター街

Udagawacho, Shibuya City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

Tokyo's capital for youth culture, fashion, and music

Walk across the famous Shibuya Scramble Crossing and head into the narrow streets of Center-Gai, the central hub for youth culture in Tokyo. Throughout the day, hordes of young people come here in search of the latest in fashion and music.

Tips

  • Though the main street consists of fast-fashion stores and chain restaurants, head further out into the Dogenzaka area to find more eccentric shops and authentic eateries
  • The clubs around Center-Gai that stay open until dawn and regularly book world-renowned DJs and performers

Exploring the area, you can expect to find cheap fast-fashion, niche sub-culture boutiques with small record shops, underground venues and cavernous clubs hidden along the narrow streets. Once the sun goes down, Center-Gai fills with the frenetic energy of late-night partiers and drinking companions who tuck into the surrounding nightlife entertainment.

Located in the center of Shibuya, consider spending an entire afternoon and evening enjoying Shibuya Center-Gai and the surrounding attractions, which include Meiji Jingu, Omotesando, and Harajuku.
