An incredible set on the motion picture of life. Really the epitome of civilisation and the world of man. Yes it’s just a crossing and some billboards and a ton of people. But it’s energising and wonderful.

It's a crossing in shibuya people cross it passing each other and never to cross each other again. I guess its beauty lies in its metaphorical nature. Life is collection of fleeting moments.

The Shibuya crossing is a really amazing crossing to visit in Tokyo. Every time the signals turn red for traffic there could be anyway from 500 to 1500 people crossing in all directions. We had an aerial view from the place Magnet roof top. This...More

Don’t bother going to Starbucks to get the same pic everyone else does, although unless you get access to any of the other buildings in the area with a view of the crossing, you’ll get the same pic as everyone else anyway. Try Mag’s Park....More

one of the greatest scenes on earth is watching the hundreds of people cross the road everyday. And the dog statue just makes it even better.

A must see. Packed with people. Swarming to cross. One of a kind experience. Nearby Hachiko statue. Good shopping place too. Easily accessible by Metro. A good 2 hours is enough to immerse the experience.

The Shibuya Crossing is pretty interesting to see so many people cross without bumping into each other. If you go into Starbucks to the 2nd floor you can see the true effect of the crossing. It's like their time square. I enjoyed visiting this spot.

Not much to add, just the usual go to Starbucks and make a photo from there, the entrance is by the record store. And maybe a photo tip make a panorama photo close to the window to reduce the glare.

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
