    Amazingly organized & polite for one of the world's busiest crossing areas. This is also a good area for people watching! You have probably seen this in films set in Tokyo. It's easy to reach via subway.

    Very busy area. Great view from Starbucks nearby. Lots of stores to check out. Not all affordable but there's a lot of places to browse.

    I mean... don't just treat it as a crossing. Use this time to have fun as you cross the road. Dodging people coming from all directions with vehicular traffic at a standstill. Try getting across without bumping into a single person. ;) At least I did & had loads of fun. Call me cynical but these are little, unique pleasures.

    An impressive location worth checking off on your list and moving on. There are more interesting places to linger in my opinion.

    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.

    …and Shibuya’s famous crossing. It gets so busy that up to 3,000 people cross at a single light change.

    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.

    If there is just time to do one thing in Tokyo, go here!!! Its amazing to experience the 4 way intersections bursting with tourists and fashion individuals. Try to spot the Hachi dog statue and take your time to visit all the streets around!!! Why not try a massage while you are there?

    The number of people who cross the street here will just blow your mind. Just think of "Lost in Translation" and it's actually how it is. Always bustling with people day and night, it's a sight to see. Lots of great nightlife here, and delicious food to be explored in Shibuya.

    The sheer energy of the center of fashion and nightlife - with its throngs of people, blazing neon lights and enormous video screens - is enough to stop you dead in your tracks while you loudly proclaim to yourself, "Wow - I'm in Tokyo!" The meeting place of record is the statue of Hachiko, a dog who accompanied his owner to the station and back home at night - until one day the owner never came home, and the ever faithful Hachiko continued to wait.

    The Shibuya crossing is the iconic image of modern Tokyo. The entire area is bustling well into the night with great places to eat, drink and shop

    It would be a shame to come to Tokyo and not take a walk across the famous intersection outside Shibuya Station. Simply mesmerizing to watch hundreds of people cross the road without bumping into each other! The perfect organized chaos.

    A total MUST when in Japan. This crossing is amazing. You are overloaded with energy when you are here. It's nothing like NY/SF/Etc. This is a place all its own!
