These are the five hottest clubs in Shibuya where visitors can really get into different aspects of Tokyo's club and DJ scene.

There are a number of clubs in the Shibuya and Roppongi areas where travelers to Japan meet up to have fun. That being said, there are also a number of clubs not really suited for travelers so trying to find the club that suits you best will take some time and effort.

Here, we will introduce the top five recommended clubs in the Shibuya area for those who wish to experience a Japanese club on their travels.

You'll need some form of identification at the door so make sure you don't forget your passport! Also, the dress codes are rather lenient so there's no need to be dressed up when you go.

1. The Club Observed Worldwide - WOMB

Among the clubs that line the streets of Shibuya is the remarkably famous WOMB. In 2005, it was featured in the UK music magazine MIX MAG and received 2nd place in the world club ranking. Since then, it has received a lot of attention worldwide.

One of the highlights of the club is its light system which includes Asia's largest disco ball.

2. The Asian-Themed club asia

Of all the clubs that line Maruyama Street, the one that receives the most attention, with its bright red facade and characteristic black dragon logo, is the famous club asia. As the name suggests, it is Asian-themed. The inside is of a very oriental style along with particular scents of the Asian continent. Here you'll be able to enjoy an Asian atmosphere through all five of your senses.

At club asia, they of course have famous DJs from not only Japan, but from all over the world. They also have amateur DJ events so you'll really be able to experience and feel today's popular music in Shibuya.

3. The Club with a Different Feel on Every Floor – ATOM TOKYO

At the Shibuya club ATOM TOKYO, there are three floors set up with their very own unique atmospheres.

On the 5th floor is the main lounge, where you can experience a party atmosphere while listening to today's popular club music. On the 4th floor, you'll be able to experience a wondrous atmosphere while listening to the musical styling of HIP-HOP and R&B. The 6th floor has a stylish open space where you can enjoy dancing to your favorite EDM (electronic dance music).

ATOM TOKYO is also known as the place for the younger crowd so it is ideal if you are trying to experience the younger club scene.

4. The Club at the Heart of Shibuya – T2 SHIBUYA

T2 SHIBUYA is located in the middle of Center-gai in Shibuya. It is approximately 830 square meters with 5 meter high ceilings and a capacity to hold over 1200 people.

T2 SHIBUYA is equipped with Japan's first and newest projection mapping DJ booth. The club is known for its amazing sound and beautiful, high-class interior and is considered extremely popular among young people.

We also recommend going to the restaurant inside the club, which uses the finest domestic ingredients to make its high quality Western European cuisine.

5. The Giant Underground Club on Dogenzaka Street – SOUND MUSEUM VISION

5 minutes from Shibuya Station on foot on Dogenzaka Street is the underground club SOUND MUSEUM VISION. Designed by a number of famous DJs, the club has the world's leading sound system to produce amazing sound just perfect for the music lovers who gather there.

Inside SOUND MUSEUM VISION is also an art gallery, a place that lets you enjoy art while listening to music.

Please note: Photo IDs are required to enter each club and to purchase drinks - for international visitors, your passport may be the only form of ID accepted at the door so driver's licenses, etc., may not be enough to carry with you. Credit cards are not accepted at most clubs, so you will be required to have cash on hand. Wi-fi is not available at any of these establishments.
