Look around at the shops, the photo boots with hysteric teen agers, the amusement halls .... The main drag is closed to cars. There is loud music every where over here. It's fun to watch, but not for to long.

Imagine the Bay of Fundy with people. Tremendous tidal action as thousands of people converge from all directions to cross the street. That’s the spectacular Shibuya crossing. Cross with the crowds several times simply to experience polite crowds. Then locate a haughty vantage point, perhaps...More

This is the heart of Shibuya. There are hundreds for tiny restaurants and shops. We had a fantastic sushi lunch at one of the stand up restaurants where the sushi was prepared fresh, right in front of you.

You won't set a personal best walking along this crowded street near the Scramble but that isn't your purpose anyway. Rather it is to pick up the sights and sounds of Tokyo 'youth culture', the shops, the eateries, and the noise that comes with it....More

We did a lot of people watching and window shopping but it was a fantastic experience. The kids (9 & 16) enjoyed it thoroughly. There’s never a dull moment but the streets are super crowded so be aware that you need to keep a close...More

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.
