    If you are coming from a small town, I think your head will spin here. You don't need to buy anything (though it is a shopping area, of course), just watch the crowds crossing the enormous intersections at Shibuya! It's unbelievable!!

    Shibuya Crossing

    The most famous road crossing in Japan.

    Chaos occurs when the green man appears.

    Nothing special, but one of the things you should see in Tokyo

    Go to busy Shibuya

    Shibuya is a place where a lot of the young people hang out. There`s lots to do, but I also got the impression that one should be a little careful when there.

    This is madness every 3 minutes (i think) the lights stop and evryone just crosses. I have never seen so many people in such a small area

    Koen Dori in Shibuya

    Ko en Dori is very nice with lots of trees, interesting shops and restaurants. It's much more quiet than the maze of the crossing and the jungle of Center Gai !

    The best view of Shibuya crossing

    by ChuckG Written Jan 10, 2004

    To get the best view of the Shibuya crossing and relax a bit, go in the coffee place located on the second floor of the tower shown on the picture, it's the ultimate place !

    Shibuya intersection. You cross not just straight across, but also at an angle. When the pedestrian lights turn green the intersection is transformed into a pedestrian zone for 30seconds!
