Harajuku Station on the Yamanote Line is immediately adjacent to Meiji-jingumae Station and is marked as an interchange on most route maps. Due to this proximity and to encourage use of the station by visitors, Tokyo Metro changed station signboards to read "Meiji-jingumae 'Harajuku' Station" (明治神宮前〈原宿〉駅) on 6 March 2010.[1]
