I loved this region when I was in a high school. I used to date after school with other school's girls shopping, movie, sometimes drinking...
Shibuya was complete for high school kids to date as they are in a big city like Tokyo (and a little too childish for grown-ups).
Shibuya still is the center of the current movements of Japanese teenagers.
"Hachiko" is a dog immortalized as a statue in front of Shibuya train station.
According to legend, the dog used to walk its master, a university professor, from home to train station and back every day. When the professor passed away, people noticed that the dog still come to the station daily to wait for its master return. The dog "Hachiko" waited for 10 years before it finally died too.
In recognition of the dog's loyalty, the locals built this dog statue in its honor.
One of the most famous things about Tokyo is the Shibuya Crossing. It's featured in Lost in Translation and probably plenty of other movies and tv shows.
Although it looks really intimidating, it really isn't that bad. Cross the road and then go get a seat at Starbucks and watch other people cross the road. It's really bizarre that I am writing a tip about crossing the road but then Tokyo is bizarre.
Favorite thing: This poor little dog wait and wait everyday at Shibuya station for its master to return for 11 years after his master's death. Now its statue becomes one of the most important meeting point in Tokyo. Good reminder to all of us --- PLEASE BE PUNCTUAL AND SHOW UP !!
Shibuya is a welknow place to all tourist. There is a dog sculpture in front of the station and it reminds people the touching story - Friendship of human and animal.
Besides the story, you can tell what is the fashion "IN" of the time when you walk on the street.
When you are in Shibuya, don't just only look at the fashion on the street but also the interior design of the shops.
The photo is one of the attractive shop to me in Shibuya. The shop is selling Chinese "Pao" "Dian Xing". The colour, the smoke from the roof really make me want to try their food.
Favorite thing: Many street performers doing their jobs conscienciously, hoping someday becoming superstars. Please give them your appaluse in case you pass by.
