12.April.2018 | FEATURES / SPOT

Hi, everyone. I’m Shiota, the director of the MOSHI MOSHI BOX.

This is the second entry to our already-popular series where we ask questions to 100 foreigners. We give questionnaires about Japan to foreign tourists that come into the MOSHI MOSHI BOX Harajuku Tourist Information Center.

The 2nd question we asked people was “Where are you heading to next in Tokyo?” Let’s take a look at the answers!

 

 

渋谷

1st Place: Shibuya (34 Votes)
The most popular answer was Shibuya, which got more than double that of the 2nd place rank. It’s common to see lots of foreign tourists taking photos of Shibuya’s famous Scramble Crossing. In the questionnaire answers, a lot of people were planning to go there for fashion and shopping.
