First off, this is an intersection at the convergence of several roads (set your expectations accordingly). It's the largest pedestrian crosswalk in the world, but what I found most interesting was how orderly it was. Jaywalking is very uncommon in Japan (unlike other areas of...More

When the lights turn green (for the pedestrians) it's go time! It's fun to see all those people crossing the streets in all directions, but not something you 'have' to see.

If you go to Tokyo you must see this, this is just to wierd. There is crossings everywhere, feels like thousands of people and they all wait for the green light.

The Shibuya crossing is just that - a busy cross section in Tokyo. About half of the people crossing at any given time are tourists filming their personal experience of crossing. So it is quite the spectacle. If you are lucky you can see it...More

Fun to participate. Pretty at night with the lights all lit. Great viewing from the 25th floor restaurant and bar at the Tokyu Excel hotel.

Love the area and so much fun, to not only partake, but to watch all of the people cross from all directions. It is quite strange that you can have so many people crossing from so many different cultures, do it respectfully. You can either...More

This is supposed to be the largest pedestrian crossing in the world and it did not disappoint. The amount of people in Tokyo and walking the streets at all hours is astonishing. It’s like NYC but multiplied by 10 times the number of people! It...More

It lived up to the hype! It’s a super busy crossing and safe to take pictures throughout the crossing. There are buildings around where you can take pictures from above.

No trip to Tokyo can be complete without crossing the madness that is Shibuya. Check out the ariel view from the nearby starbucks if you can get in.

Shibuya crossing is an excellent place to people watch. Depending on the time of day, you get a different experience of what is going on. In the morning, everyone is rushing off to work and school and at night everyone is coming out for a...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.

It’s the center of Shibuya, so there’s everything to do here. I mean, the scrabble itself is a pedestrian crossing, but the Tokyu Food Show is underneath it, the Shibuya yokocho (along with hundreds of other restaurants) is... More

Not sure about restaurants but there is a big Starbucks on one corner. The window seats were very busy but I think you’d have a decent view.
