Tokyo drift fans this is for you. Probably the most busiest crossings in Tokyo. Its amazing to watch traffic of kinds cross this busy intersection. Plus its the point where Tokyo Drift was filmed.

Great place to watch people and do time lapses of this busy road. This road is really iconic and worth to visit! Do be mindful when crossing the road as many people are always in a rush and not look where they are crossing.

It's the famous crosswalk. You have to do it at least once. Tons of shopping and restaurants around. Also it's right near Shibuya Station if you just want to see the crosswalk and then move on from there, you can do so easily.

Its not amazing but interesting, thousands of people crossing the big intersection in all directions at the same time, it gives you the ant colony feeling that many want to experience in Tokyo. Popular photo spot and free of charge, so give it a try...More

First let me tell you where it is. It is right across from the Shibuya subway station. We weren't sure as we arrived at a late morning and the intersection was pretty empty. We even asked several other tourists but they didn't know what we...More

Five way crossing with hundreds of people each time. Best viewed from a height. We went to level 1 of Starbucks for a pretty good view. Lots of others doing the same thing. Cost us nothing and you could always get a drink🤗 I think...More

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.
