3. Toho Cinemas
Between the humidity of summer and the torrential downpours of rainy season, Tokyo’s weather can be brutal. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on fun! For some indoor entertainment, the Shibuya Toho Cinemas has incredibly clean and comfortable seating where you can enjoy both English and Japanese language films. For something new, check out the snack bar where you can fill up with melon Fanta, Asahi beer, cheesy potatoes and portable pancakes!
Harajuku may be known for their crepes, but Shibuya has its own style of exclusive sweets at Pablo! At Pablo, you can have your fill of the very special Japanese “rare cheesecake” which is made on site. Besides rare cheesecake, Pablo offers special seasonal varieties of cheesecake, New York-style cheesecake, and plenty of other tiny treats for you to savor!
After a full day of shopping and snacking, the evening is time for a different kind of fun! Enjoy dancing the night away to the beats of world class DJs on the huge dance floor before slipping off to the lounge and bar area to enjoy a rest and some cocktails between dance sessions at Womb’s multilevel club.
