Very interesting suburb to visit. The infamous crossing. Loads of shops, small local restaurants and crazy buildings. The hustle and bustle is fascinating to watch.

When you think Tokyo, you will probably think of Shibuya. It's got the "big crossing with all the people walking in different directions." Shibuya is hectic, crazy, energetic and exciting to be in. It's a bubble of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. If you arrive into Shibuya on any JR line, here's a tip, follow the signs to the "Keio... More

It seems so inane when described (i.e. "you MUST watch people cross the street after you cross the street yourself"...!!) but really is worth visiting! It's amazing that this works at all - traffic from each way stops, and all pedestrian traffic walks in every direction at once. It's fluid chaos and works like a dream! I had read to... More

We didn't have the chance to spend much time here, unfortunately, but at least we crossed at the crossing! A few times! A must-do.

i think this was an unique experience for me being right in the center of the place. The shibuya center town too me was everything tokyo. its just like i envisioned. The place is filled with lots of shopping and eating options and walking around is good to look at the local lifestyle

Many many restaurants, a lot higher in buildings but plenty of signs showing what floors they are on and what type of food is available. Many signs have english on them so you can find your way around. The worlds busiest pedestrian crossing is here. And shops, shops and more shops. one even sells only socks.

The Shibuya station is like a maze, during rush hour it is so packed you can get dazed, especially with all the neon above.

So I visited the main Tokyo city centre of Shibuya at day and it was pretty good seeing the crossing and town but not quite what i expected, I then returned on the night time and it was a whole different world it was amazing, lights and signs everywhere with the streets crowded with people it was an amazing atmosphere!
