- Shibuya CrossingFeb 21, 2014
Very cool to watch the street crossing. There is a Starbucks with a second floor that overlooks the street. A great place to take a short break while passing through the area.

Said by some to be the center of the universe Shibuya Crossing is impressive, iconic and really something to see in person! Located in the Shibuya section of Tokyo the crossing is a huge intersection of several major streets in the center of the city. When I came to the crossing I was so distracted by the sheer size of the intersection that I was shocked when the lights changed and everyone started crossing all at once! I was blown away with how many people walked in to many different directions across that one spot in such an orderly, organized fashion.

The busy all crossing intersections outside of Shibuya station is iconic for Tokyo, although, that type of crossing is becoming popular in other cities as well. It was raining when we went so was not too crowded. The second floor of the Starbucks offers a good vantage point to view the crossing.

Sure it's one of the most populated intersections in the world but that doesn't mean it can't be one of the best places to visit for a broke-ass does it? The people watching at Shibuya Crossing is stupendous. Just sitting there for like a half hour you will see every bit of imaginable Japaneseness that exists. Plus you can make it an al fresco dining experience by picking up some of the delicious food that Japan manages to stock its convince stores with, and a chu-hai (powerful and delicious carbonated shochu drink). Then you can just sit and watch the world go by.

One of the most amazing things in Tokyo to me is how this massive number of people that you see at the train stations and the streets manages to move so orderly and without bumping into each other.
The best place to witness it (and be amazed again and again) is the Shibuya Crossing, where when the traffic lights go green people start crossing the street not only along the intersection’s perimeter but also diagonally (be assured that it’s allowed – the crossing pattern is right there).

An absolute must visit site in Tokyo and one of the busiest pedestrian intersections in the world.
Enjoy a walk up center street. Check out 109 and the Nishimuta Fruit Parlor or shop the food stalls at Tokyu Food Show.

A very, very, very big crossing (some say the largest and busiest on Earth), and a decent place to catch the night-time buzz of the city of Tokyo. Have a wander thru before or after dinner when the neon lights are out.

Most of the collections of photos seem to include at least one of this crossing. The best (and easiest) vantage point for it is a Starbucks on the second floor of one of the buildings. It can be interesting just watching the large number of people crossing.
