The Japanese capital is very unique in the way the buildings are numbered.
You’ll find that they are numbered in the order in which they were constructed.
The reason is the destruction and development the city has gone through over the last 75 years (bombings, earthquakes, fires etc.).
This confusing system makes finding a specific building a bit of a struggle.
The policeman at the neighborhood police booths will help you out to a specific address. It is part of their job, and they are more than willing to do so.

Given the amount of destruction and aggressive development that the city has gone through over the past 75 years (earth quakes, bombing, fires) it’s extremely unlikely that any two buildings in a given street will have following numbers, and it doesn’t really help any that the addresses look like this:3-26-16 Harajuku, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo.
Most expatriates I met in Tokyo never figured out how to use the address system. Truth is its not that complicated if you use the subway system.
Since Tokyo subway stations are huge, always figure out which subway exit to go.
If you don’t know the right exit you could easily be spending 45 frustrating minutes walking around in circles. Tokyo Station Map
