The renovated Miyashita Park is another new addition to Shibuya’s ever-changing cityscape. Previously a public park located along the Yamanote line, this glitzy new three-storey building is home to a shopping mall, a variety of restaurants and cafés, as well as a hotel. Feeling peckish? Check out Shibuya Yokocho on the first floor where you can hop from one small venue to the next, sampling specialities from all over Japan. Those with a sweet tooth should head straight to Miyashita Park’s KitKat Chocolatory, where you can craft your very own custom chocolate bar.
However, the highlight is the spacious rooftop park, complete with sports facilities, including a skate park, a bouldering wall and even a sand-covered court perfect for beach volleyball. If you’d rather something less strenuous, grab a drink at the on-site Starbucks – designed by streetwear icon Hiroshi Fujiwara to look like a petrol station – and unwind on the open lawn area.
