Shibuya Parco has lots to offer, from art galleries and cool shops (including Japan's first official Nintendo store) to a basement dining zone that looks like a hip and modern reinterpretation of a yokocho. With that, many shoppers forget that there's a roofop garden here, and that's a mistake. This little slice of green is quiet and serene, and it offers panoramic views of Shibuya cityscape. The sunset here is gorgeous, too.
Check out the on-site bar and restaurant Commune, which serves up casual food, cool drinks and cocktails, as well as the occasional events. The eatery has a lofty warehouse vibe, with scaffolding, timber bar tables and plenty of neon lights.
The individual stores are set up like street food carts. Ikiba offers everything from pasta, stew and salad, to finger food like fish and chips, plus exquisite cocktails. Takobar, on the other hand, serves tacos with handmade tortillas, as well as corn chips, guacamole and salsa, and a lineup of booze. Caffeine fiends can get their fix at Coffee Bar Gallage, which also offers coffee-based cocktails, or hit up Light Up Coffee for its single-origin brews.
