This may be always the most busy place of Tokyo. It is cool to watch the crowds crossed at the crossing in different directions. Make sure to spend enough time here if you want to shop.

I've been here twice. Shops, bustle, restaurants, bustle, that amazing crossing, bustle, and more bustle. Great people-watching, great to explore. Top recommendation - Starbucks overlooking the crossing. Sit down, nurse your feet, have a cold iced latte while watching the hordes surge over the zebra stripes below. The cafe mind-melds into a music shop, kind of weird, but hey, this... More

Tons of shops and restaurants everywhere! Came here with friends on Valentines day and saw men dressed up a giant hearts outside the 109 shopping building (can't miss it, has a large red lighted "109" sign on top) - squeee. I don't speak Japanese but it appeared to be a combination game show/advertisement. Shibuya crossing was really cool to see.... More

If you want to shop or not this place is great just to wander through the crowds and see what different kinds of stores and cafes there are! If you have time, try visiting in the day and the again at night! Including the Shibuya crossing

Exiting the metro you spill out onto a bustling scene of people, traffic and lights and sounds. Huge electronic bill boards, loud music and shops of a different kind. Lots to see and do by just strolling around.

Shibuya is the coolest place in the world. So much modern culture in one place. Unbelievable busy but everything just works. People are so friendly and the pub/club/shopping areas are amazing. My younger sister and I went into the shopping complex called 'Shibuya 109' hands down the most beautiful women I have ever seen are in that building. I would... More

Shibuya 109 intersection is worth seeing on its own, it is the Japanese equivalent of Times Square, NY. After (or probably before) one can spend days wondering the (upscale and pricey) shops to the north heading towards Shinjuku.

What can I say? Its not Harajuku with its.small shops and alternative target group. But it is Shibuya, a great place for shopping. Numerous small or big (Bershka) shops spreading out from the Shibuya crossing towards various places. There are restaurants nearby including one of the 5 Alice in Wonderland franchise restaurants. Cool place especially if you want to kill... More

You simply HAVE to spend at least 1 night in the area and walk around aimlessly looking at shops and restaurants and people. This is the epitomy of all of the things you really want to see when you are in Tokyo.

So far this is most crowded area I ever been in Japan. If you're looking for Hachiko statue, it was hidden in crowd of smokers. Hachiko Statue is directly after Shibuya station hachiko exit. There's iconic Tsutaya building and 101. I tried to walk to Harajuku and seems never ending store until reaching near TV station, which is less crowded... More
