So vibrant, packed with people, you can get lost in hundreds of shops and restaurants, everything is open 24/7, you have sushizanmai there as well to snack (great sushi for an ok price), a starbucks for refreshment and a couple of malls (of which 109 is the least fancy), so picturesque...

It's worth it to wonder around (and somewhat get lost) in Shibuya. Lots of places to stop and shop, unique places, and food options as well.

Amazing place and very subreal! I loved it! Tokyo is great and most attractions are low cost or free. I cannot wait for the Olympic games here in 2020!

Absolutely crazy place, not very pretty but lots of lights, signs and good shops. Mainly chain stores, if you're not from Japan, don't miss the enormous Muji.

This intersection reminded me of Times Square with the throngs of people and the bright lights. Shibuya is unique, however, in that this is an intersection. It is amazing how many people continually walk through this intersection in all manner of directions. It's certainly worth visiting and the area around it has a lot to offer as well.

This is the area for the young with loads of trendy shops and cafes. Loads of styles of clothing from 60s look, to modern trendy clothing. The streets Inokashira-Dori and Bunkamura-Dori in the west and Cat Street, Takeshita Street and Harajuku Street in the east are the best for alternative boutiques. The streets in between have the more well known... More

Everyone going to Tokyo must experience Shibuya crossing. We were feeling jet lagged so decided to head out to Shibuya crossing first thing in the morning. Haha. There was no one there. We did go back in the evening for the full effect. It sure did not disappoint. Must see.

This is the Tokyo one tends to think about. Lots of signs. Lots of people. Lots of fun. You will certainly find what you want to buy and what you want to eat here. Besides the shops lining the streets, there are even malls to explore. Bring your wallet!

A handful of Tokyo neighborhoods illustrate the culture of the City, one is Shibuya. Lots of shops and lots of people to watch. The main drag is tree lined, affording relief from the August heat. Check our the Nike store for cool Japan exclusives. Another good walk when the jet lag takes over.

Shibuya is Tokyo at full charge ( as opposed to low batt ) & is a must see & experience place to visit when in Tokyo. Do the crossing at peak hours ( week-ends, after office hours ) or sit some where nearby & watch the locals do it. For die-hard shoppers, Shibuya is the place to base yourself from... More
