Owner description: The only place I've come across where 7crossroads come together and the lights all turn red at the same time.Thousands of pedestrians then all cross at the same time. Just amazing.

The best time to visit is at night over the weekend. It’s always crowded and busy at this intersection, but Friday or Saturday night this area takes it to another level. It is so crowded and all the lights from the big screen give the area the wow factor.

Well, it’s ok to have the experience of being there. But after 5 min You’re done!

Kind of place that worth one photo and nothing else more.

I lived in Japan 30 years ago and this place has not changed. Be swept across the crossing by the streams of people either heading to the hundreds of stores or back to the train station.

Great at night with the kaleidoscope of lights.

Well worth the visit even if you don’t really like crowds.

You can take a photo either on the crossing or up from within the train station

Went here for a look, it was a Monday so it was not that busy but still worth it, if you really want to see it in full swing go at peak hour, 7 Roads cross at the intersection & the walk signs all turn green at the same time, amazing, we also saw the famous dog statue in memory of ‘Hachiko’ a dog that came to wait for his owner near the intersection just outside Shibuya Station for 10 years after his owner had died.

There are so many people here...crossing the street in multiple directions. People going to work, shopping, and people like us...taking pictures of people! Fascinating area and packed with shopping and restaurants. Really lights up at night.
