Tokyo hand-drawn maps: Daikanyama, Shibuya, Harajuku, Meiji Shrine (13, 14, 15)

A few of my hand-drawn maps from the collection:

Map 13: Daikanyama Station 代官山駅 (map)

Two notes about the map:

  • ‘HEARTY’ is the name of a now-closed restaurant, HEARTY CAFE レストラン・カフェ.
  • ‘STAIRS’ refers to this flight of stairs that has a bike ramp on either side:

Not on the map, but located near the ‘Shibuya –>” arrow is Log Road Daikanyama ログロード代官山, a shopping and walking path built on the site of the old Toyoku Line tracks:

Map 14: Shibuya

A simple map of the area north of Shibuya Station, including:

Map 15: Harajuku, Meiji Shrine, Shibuya

This map covers most of what I’ve included in my list of “Tokyo Top 10” things to see and do, which is geared towards first-time visitors to the city, but also for old-timers.

This includes:

  • Meiji shrine: a wooded and tranquil escape from the city
  • Yoyogi park: (not on the map, but just below Meiji Shrine) always active and vibrant
  • Harajuku: not a place you need to so too often, but worth visiting once

Note seen on this map is Cat street: meandering pedestrian street with shopping and people-watching. This roughly corresponds to the dotted line linking Ōta Memorial Museum of Art to the old Tobacco & Salt Museum and the Craftheads craft beer bar.

Also near Map 15 is Map #2: Design Festa Gallery
