great little historic street with lots of tiny bars and places to eat. Grab a beer at one of the tiny bars and soak up the atmosphere and the smell of yakatori being cooked. It is very touristy which is understandable however we found Bar...More

The place has lasted through generations including the war times. There are very many small stores worth exploring.

We arrived through renovated Shibuya station and after neon lights you're transferred into different world. It is for locals and tourists alike. Nice experience.

I love this little pocket of restaurant laden laneways. It’s like stepping back in time and gives you a real feel of authentic Japan. Inexpensive and ridiculously tasty food, with lots of variety in the food each restaurant offers. I begrudgingly tasted cooked and lightly...More

Loved walking around and exploring this area! There’s a lot of tiny bars/restaurants with just a few seats - Don’t be afraid to go in! Great yakitori and Japanese vibe.

We went here for dinner. It smelled great throughout the alley. It was very busy, so it took a while before we found a place and we had to split up in pairs. I think that adds to the charm of the alley, though. I...More

There were definitely shops open at midday, including a local hot spot for ramen (even at lunch time, there was a queue). Night time is a different atmosphere and the aromas of all the food is amazing. Enjoy :)
