The station consists of a single island platform. A temporary platform is located on the west side of the station usable by trains traveling towards Shinjuku which is used when major events occur in the area, especially around New Year when many people visit Meiji Shrine.

The bathrooms of Harajuku station also act as mini dressing rooms for the many teenagers and rebellious youths who express themselves through the outrageous fashions for which Harajuku is famous.

The main entrance is at the southern end of the station. A smaller entrance leading to the centre of the platform is convenient for Takeshita-dōri, another famous area in Harajuku. Takeshita-dōri is a popular shopping street and the Takeshita-dōri entrance to Harajuku Station is often very crowded. This congestion creates a bottleneck on weekends when scores of tourists and locals arrive and leave the shopping areas in and around Takeshita-dōri.

To the north of the station there is a separate platform serving a loop on the east side of the freight line for use by the Imperial train.35°40′27″N 139°42′14″E / 35.674234°N 139.703807°E / 35.674234; 139.703807
