About
The only place where 7 cross roads come together and the lights all turn red at the same time. Thousands of pedestrians then all cross at the same time. Just amazing.

Top ways to experience Shibuya Crossing
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Tokyo's Times Square

After having photos in Hachiko Statue, spend your time taking photos and videos in Shibuya Crossing. Just be wary of the hundreds or even thousands of people crossing the street and don't forget to wear your perfect outfit for memorable photos.

Fun Fact: Before the pandemic, every 25 seconds, there are more or less 3000 people crossing the famous Shibuya Crossing!

It is worth to sit and enjoy the unique experience of this crossing and to look at the face of people who do this for the first time.

Truly amazing
Mar 2021 • Solo
Seeing this world-renown street really was everything I expected it to be. Tons and tons of lights, people everywhere, and plenty of spots to film and take pictures.
The Starbucks of course is the most popular thing in the area and you’ll likely cross this area if you plan on doing some shopping at some point in your trip.

You have to see it
Jun 2020 • Business
It is one of the must see places/attractions in shibuya area even though it is just a road crossing. When you are in the 5 road crossing it is so crowded that you can not understand much. But when you see it from the air..oh boy

A dream come true!
Jan 2020
I felt like I was in an anime or in a movie since this part of Tokyo is so heavily portrayed in the media. The Hachiko statue is right by the street, so is one of the entrances of Shibuya station. Amazing!!

Chaotic yet Organized - Beating heart of the capital
Dec 2019 • Solo
You need to see it to believe it. So Chaotic yet very organized. It has two busiest railway stations nearby which makes this crosswalk extremely busy during peak hours. Thousands of pedestrians await on all sides to cross and the moment when everyone scramble through without hitting each other makes ones jaw drop. The area around Shibuya crossing is full of fascinating nooks and crannies just waiting to be explored. Widely considered the beating heart of the capital, the energy here is infectious; you won’t ever be too tired to move right on to the next. It's a must when in Tokyo

Mad!
Nov 2019 • Friends
This crossing is insane!! Orderly and function-able but definitely insane!!
The crossing experience memorable and gets prettier at night with all the lights on.
The blazing neon signs, the giant video screens and of course the sea of people swarming in all directions once the traffic comes to a halt.

World Famous Crossing
Mar 2020
This is THE busiest crossing in the entire world on a normal day, but since I was vacationing in Tokyo when COVID-19 started to become a thing, there weren't many tourists around. I hope one day Shibuya Crossing will return to its former hectic environment.

Make sure you head up to Shibuya Sky for an alternative view of the crossing that you can only get from a vantage point that high up!

Reputed to be the busiest in the World - Disappointing
Oct 2019
Amusing, when viewed from the Coffee Shop overlooking the Crossing, but mostly because there are a steady stream of idiots, apparently intent of getting run over.

We did not think it overly busy nor crowded, and think that Oxford Circus in London's West End is much worse. It really is NOT a Contest, you'd want to win.

It's a Tick-in-the-Box, kind of place. Been there, Seen it. Tick.
