We actually went in July 2013 which was a great weather time to go. Just amazing to see the amount of people who move through this area, in all directions, at all hours. Even on a weeknight at 3am there is movement across the main intersection. It was a fascinating experience and the people of Japan could not be more... More

This is one of the places in Tokyo that are so packed with people throughout the day. It doesn't matter what time, there are just so many people everywhere.

In my humble opinion I think it's worth it to go to Tokyo just to visit this amazing place, both day and night is an extraordinary sight all those lights and all those people, all kinds of shops, cafes and restaurants everywhere, many people people . In short, you can not come to visit Tokyo and Shibuya.

This is a MUST see in Japan. We went late (10pm) on a Sunday night and it was crazy! There were so many people. Lots of eateries and shops open late. Shibuya has a real cosmo vibe. Well worth the visit. Easy to get to on the Metro.

First off, I enjoyed every minute of my trip to Tokyo, as hard as it was. Almost no one spoke English yet they were all super kind and helpful. We went out on our own, but you might want to take a tour at least to get started. We took the metro to Shibuya to see the famous crossing. We... More

Last June-July we travelled to Japan, we stayed there for almost 10 days, after few days there i found a good lesson...we bought the JRpass from Jakarta, so when we reach Tokyo immediately we want to try using it. Trying so hard to read the maps in each stations but still we end up going to the counter and ask... More

So much to see in Shibuya! When you get out the train station you are right at the famous crossing. There are loads of shops to wonder into and the sights are amazing. Spend some time just walking and getting lost and you might find a little hidden gem. I got lost walking around back streets and always felt safe.

Biggest Crossing if not in the world, probably in Asia. Looks like an old Times Square but I still like it. I love people crossing on the pedxing, following the white lines...and these are group of people not just a few

Amazing... The best cross in the world in my opinion. Go to starbucks 1 st floor, drink something and just enjoy hundreds of persons crossing the traffic light every 3 minutes... Impressive. Shibuya is a nice district, especially with darkness. Good restaurant, great shopping. Metro makes it easily reachable from every part of tokyo. Dont miss it.
