I have been here to show some friends of mine the Crossing. The first time you see it you are overwhelmed by that experience. Second time it isn’t that astonish anymore. It is a crossing. Of course one of the largest crossings in the world,...More

This place is incredibly crowded and magical to watch. It is very unusual to see so many people cross at the same time !

The crossing is the mundane on a grand scale. You can participate in the great flow of people walking from one side of the intersection to the other, observe it from the raised walkway that leads from the station to the high rise mall, or...More

It sounds as the legend. The Tokyo “Time Square” really its only a very busy crossing. If you are are around just cross it so you may put a check.

Worth the time to come watch humanity in a rhythmic dance As waves of human beings cross five intersection at the same time. Get up to the second level for the best view.

So many people criss cross paths comfortably. Sea of humans. When you too are a part of this crowd, you feel strange. People have different lives and situations, people from different countries but walking together indifferent of each other.

Vegas style lights. Many people. There are some shops/ malls around but you basically come to drink and people watching. Come at night

Can’t see what the big deal is apart from going there to say you’ve been there seen it and ticked it off the list. Felt it was over hyped. I had more fun at the intersection outside Kyoto station!

Nearby
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.
