Crowded and always busy, there's just something so beautiful with all the people crossing the streets at once in every direction with the LEDS from the billboard glowing so bright and so colorful. I also find it an honor taking a picture with Hachiko's statue. My friends all told how lucky I was! haha

I wish I had more time doing shopping and dining. I enjoyed this place. Good bargain stores are sometime located in building that looks like its for offices but there are stores on every floor.

So many sounds, lights, and people! With several blocks comprising the heart of Shibuya, think of it as Times Square, just with three times the intensity! There is something here for everyone - if you can survive the the overload ;)

I got here at night and it was quite crowded as expected. The only thing I really like about Shibuya is the dinner I ate. The food there was quite good, I went in to a ramen shop that only have seats in a line and you order through and vending machine, and I found it interesting. The atmosphere of... More

When leaving the subway station, you can choose the exit that leads to to a large intersections crossed by thousands of people in the same time where the traffic lights permit it. This ocean of people is very spectacular. This is one of Shibuya's landmarks. This area is where thousands of young people meet and go out, many of them... More

After making your way across the famous Shibuya crossing, get lost in the maze of side streets here! There is every kind of restaurant, cafe, eatery and shop you can think of. It makes it so hard and yet so fun to decide where to go for a meal. It's also great to people watch - every kind of character... More

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
