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

A maze of streets after the famous crossing, all lit up with gigantic neon signs offer endless possibilities for shopping and eating. A bunch of restaurants of all world kitchens makes it difficult to decide where to go. Fabulous place to spend an evening.

I love this place! The atmosphere, the crowd, the shops...everything here is good. Come witness the busy Shibuya crossing and experience walking with the whole crowd. A place with young people shopping and walking around.

Check it out from the second floor of Starbucks. Controlled mayhem. Also be sure to cross it yourself, as well.

This is such a busy crossing but you will be amazed at the precision of people going to and fro this intersection. Once you get off the subway, and onto the main crossing, then you will see all the stoplights from all directions change light, and people start walking. Nice to go there to see and try it. Not to...

You can easily spend two days just walking around Shibuya lots of stores and sights to see 😊 We went to Parco for the Pokemon cafe but it was already closed since they said it was only a pop up cafe

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.
