The city of never ending fun

Let yourself be drawn into the Tokyoite whirl and enjoy its fruits born of joyful and unbridled imagination.



After a moment of apprehension at the sight of whole groups of Japanese in their Sunday best who spend their days here, anyone can easily get caught up in the spirit of the game.

These are not just ordinary photos as the background can be selected and the photo edited when you leave the booth, thanks to many additions and crazy retouches (headgear, "manga" style eyes, text...). The possibilities are endless in terms of creation and pushing the limits of "kawai," the outrageously cute.

In Purikura no Mecca ("Purikura Mecca"), located on the first floor of a building in Shibuya, the impressive number of booths will satisfy any desire to experiment.

address: Purikura no Mecca : 2-23-15 Udagawacho, Shibuya-ku.
access: Shibuya Station, Hanzomon Line, Ginza Line, Fukutoshin Line or JR Yamanote Line.

Cats Cafés

An original concept, neko cafés are not street-side, they are nestled in open apartments where you can spend an hour for around 1000 yen and you have unlimited access to drinks machines.

The cats, which are the stars of the apartment, must not be disturbed during a nap or during their meals. Rarely visited by tourists, neko cafés attract schoolgirls, retirees and couples of softies.

A quirky experience, it is worth a visit for all cat lovers or those who just want to take a break from the frenetic Tokyo in an unusual place.

opening times: from 11 am to 11 pm daily.
address: Nekorobi
Café: 1-28-1, Tact T.O Building, 3rd floor, Higashi Ikebukuro, Toyoshima-ku, Tokyo
access: Higashi Ikebukuro Station, Yurakucho Line or Ikebukuro Station, JR Yamanote Line, Fukutoshin Line and Marunouchi line.



Sony Building

In the heart of Ginza, the Sony Building is the emblem of the post-war Japanese brand.

The cutting-edge multinational, a step ahead of the future: the Sony Show Room offers visitors the possibility to see the latest innovations, which have not yet been commercialised.

Gigantic 3D TV screens, video game console prototypes, robotic pets and electronic dogs... The Sony Building is the symbol of High-Tech Japan!

opening times: free admission, 11 am – 7 pm.
address: Sony Center : 5-3-1 Ginza, Chuô-ku.
access: Ginza lines, Hibya, Marunouchi, Ginza stop (G09, H08, M16) exit B9.


Shibuya 109

To enter the huge building at 109, which dominates the Shibuya crossroads is to accept getting carried away by the madness of fashion fanatics.

As soon as you enter, the noise level, mixing elevator music and female discussions, contributes to the electric atmosphere of the place. Sensitive souls beware! The concentration of designers and compulsive shoppers, combined with heady fragrances, quickly makes your head spin.

However, such an excursion is worth the detour since 109 is at the forefront of new trends of the Shibuya youth and the extravagance of the clothing is a sociological phenomenon in itself.

opening times: daily from 10 am to 9 pm (10 pm for the restaurants).
address: 2-29-1 Dougenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, 150-0043.
access: Shibuya Station on the JR Yamanote Line, Hachiko exit and Ginza and Hanzomon metro lines.
