Moshi Moshi Box


Around Town

New openings


As the shopping district that symbolises Japanese pop culture, Harajuku is a must-visit for any tourist. But anyone who's jumped into the shopping fray will tell you it can be a little intimidating. Which is why you'll be pleased to hear about this tourist information centre that's right in the heart of the area. The Moshi Moshi Box is run by Asobisystem and provides sightseeing information for the entire Shibuya area, as well as essential information and services such as courier services, a foreign currency exchange machine and free Wi-Fi. But that's not all – aiming to serve as an entertainment centre in itself, it's a place where overseas visitors can experience J-pop culture through activities like karaoke. There's also a souvenir shop and an eatery serving snacks, such as character-themed crepes. Look out for the centre's symbol – a big, colourful world clock designed by Harajuku kawaii impresario Sebastian Masuda.
