Harajuku Station is an interesting station in Tokyo because its so small, cute and quaint yet handles a MASSIVE amount of people!  Well, we say "handles" generically here because on the weekends expect it to "handle" as best it can. On average (according to various statistics), the station handles around 70,000 people a day.  Harajuku Station is the "gateway" to Takeshita Street, Omotesandou, the Meiji Shrine and the old 1964 Olympic Stadium and is on the main Yamanote Line with encircles greater Tokyo.  There are two entrances / exits in Harajuku Station, although if you enter or exit either its easy to get back to the other, with the "Southern" exit being the most popular (which leads to the Meiji Shrine and Omotesandou) and a smaller exit which caters to the "Takeshita Street" crowd.

Harajuku Station is of course in Harajuku, internationally known as a center of Japanese youth culture and fashion.  The original Yamanote Line station of Harajuku opened in 1906.  When the Meiji Shrine was established in 1919 "Omotesandou", the main street that lead up to the shrine, was widened.  During World War 2 most of the area was burned to the ground and after the war military housing for the occupying US troops was set up in Yoyogi Park (Yoyogi Park is just on the opposite side of the tracks from where the Takeshita Street and Omotesandou are).  Along "Omotesandou" shops that appealed to the American troops were established and the area began to thrive once again.
