Shibuya Center-Gai 渋谷センター街

Udagawacho Shibuya-ku Tokyo

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.


  • 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.
