The location is great, unfortunately a little overpriced for a tourist bar. We had a few drinks at the 7/11 first and then joined our friends here. It was smoky and overcrowded, but you will meet people from many different countries!

I'll begin with a warning that it's not for everyone. That said it does one of the best jobs of recreating the atmosphere of a village pub in the U.K. if you like craft beer it has an excellent choice of house and guest ales....More

Probably one of Tokyo's local favorites for meeting up after work, The Aldgate is the unassuming little pub that has something for everyone, but isn't intimidating. Don't worry, even though it's on Shibuya's super cool and super convenient Center Gai pedestrian street, you don't need...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
