• Straighten out your tired muscles with a Shiatsu massage
  • After the excitement of exploring, treat yourself to a truly relaxing experience
  • Forget about any stress you’re feeling and just unwind

There are few better ways to get a quick recharge from the invariable exhaustion brought on by a frenzied exploration of Tokyo than by unwinding with a massage. Intrepid travelers seeking serious decompression should follow in the footsteps of locals and head to Shiatsu Room, a five-minute walk from Shibuya station’s south exit. Here, in a comfortable cubicle, visitors are handed a pair of pajamas to slip into before they are treated to an expertly muscle-melting massage following the lines of acupressure points across the body.

Near Shibuya station, opposite Tamagawi Dori, you’ll discover narrow streets packed with shops and restaurants. Look for the MCD Building, complete with a row of white signs outside. Several royal blue vending machines are found opposite the entrance.
