This iconic Japanese venue is a must if you're in Tokyo. But to see it as it is so often portrayed in film and media it should be seen at night with the neons all ablaze! The buzz is electric and this 70-year old felt 16 again, as she wandered among the throngs of trendy and less trendy young Japanese... More

A lot of shops, food, people....The whole place is interesting. It was more different in the evening with all those neon lights, adds on the buildings. Anyway, this is Japan and it seems totally different from my country and I really loved it.

Lot of little shops. I really enjoyed the night around here. Starbucks View was great, sitting watching people walk across the huge intersection. Bonus Starbucks Frappuchino

Maybe it was just the time of day I went (mid Sunday afternoon), but the intersection didn't feel that monstrously crowded. The Starbucks I watched from, though, was monstrously hot as the sun poured in directly through the windows. Was kind of fun to watch for 5 minutes or so but I felt over it pretty quickly.

Watch out for the priest scamming tourists for world peace and you will find one of the most exciting areas on earth. I could never get bored of this amazing place.

It makes Times Square (NYC) & Picadilly Circus (London) look rural. Get off the JR Shibuya Hachiko exit and experience the crossway. so many people crossing at one time - phenomenal. Best view for watching crossway - starbucks or some coffee shop near the traffic light. must visit for shopping

A lot to shop, from shoes to bags, and clothes. This is the place! If you're talking about not too pricey ones, but quality are of average, then i suppose this could be the one. But you can also find a few dessert shops nearby selling tasty treats! Sadly, it may be hard to find a decent restaurant for dinner... More

We stopped at the Starbucks across from the Shibuya station and had coffee and watched the crossing. It’s hard to imagine that many people crossing one intersection at one time. We spent about twenty minutes just mesmerized watching the intersection. We also crossed several times ourselves.

Did the crossing about four times, it was even busy on a Wednesday night can only imagine on the weekend good times. For best view grab a Starbucks and had to the 2nd floor. You will thank me later.
