A quite astonishing place. Thousands of people using the crossings in perfect synchronicity which must be seen to be believed.

Really, it's just an intersection, albeit, a busy scramble intersection. We crossed it several times, both days during heavy rain and kept bumping umbrellas along the way. The Hachiko memorial statue is at one of the corners of the intersection (next to the Hachiko exit...More

Very cool to watch. The best seat in the house is on the second level of Starbucks- you have to buy a drink first.

We visited on a Sunday morning and were blown away by the sheer number of people there. Truly amazing. Make a point of going upstairs to Starbucks and grab a coffee and just watch the world go by. If you're lucky you might also see...More

Depends on the time and day you decide to cross the Shibuya Scramble, it’s always been exciting! You can people watch, cross with the crowds, hang around during halloween, watch the lights & bill boards, eat at restaurants and enjoy the scramble view, take selfies,...More

Not worth going. Pictures we've seen are 1000% better then the reality. Nothing to do there, no excitements, just a normal pedestrian crossing.

I’ve seen pictures, movies and articles about the busiest crossing in the world. Nothing can describe the feeling until you actually experience it. Incredible! I have videos, take a look at my Instagram feed @dirkhankgordo

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.

It is right outside Shibuya metro station. Exit Hachiko (the famous dog who waited for its owner for years after his death)
