Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, Shibuya

(4.1/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
Take part in one of the most iconic scenes in Tokyo by joining the crowds through Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble, an enormous bustling intersection outside Shibuya station. Flanked by illuminated skyscrapers on each corner, the intersection buzzes with organized chaos as pedestrians cross in every direction at once. Watch the hypnotic movement of the crowds from afar--ideally from the windows of one of the surrounding buildings--before diving into the packed but orderly masses yourself. Make Shibuya Pedestrian Scramble part of your personalized Tokyo itinerary using our Tokyo trip generator.

  • Hello, when I saw him for the first time I stayed with my mouth open... This step of Zebra is the more lively of the world... at night is when better appreciates everything, by people who are both lighting signs and screens... the hour tip is to them 18:00 when almost all the world comes out of their works and is piled up there... is certainly a site of visit forced if it is in Tokyo... in the surroundings you can from a beer to go shopping in its countless shopping malls...

  • You really can't say you've been to Tokyo if you haven't experienced the craziness at this intersection! Some times are busier than others, but it's a great experience either way. You don't even have to cross to get the whole vibe. You could easily take the train into Shibuya Station, head outside for a little bit to watch the action and go along your merry way. No need to spend a lot of time here if you don't like big crowds.
  • Shibuya Crossing. It's worth it to visit... once. There are tons of places to shop and little hole in the wall sushi spots to try. You could spend a week exploring within a 1,000m radius of here.
  • Made me wander for half hour!!!! Wrong location!!!!
  • this is not the correct location, it's a few streets to the west
